Dervock (539) - Emu plains, - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle - pours black with a deep ran head. Hints of smoky chocolate and caramel malt in the nose. Not a lot on the taste, dryness across the palate, again something in there registering as smokey. Nice full mouthfeel.

Bottle as Marstons Stout from Morrison’s. Opaque black beer with a thin bubbly head. Smell is dry and malty. Flavour is what you’d expect from a solid if thoroughly unspectacular stout. Dry malt, a bit of fruit and chocolate. Slightly sweet finish.

Very decent stout, though the head is a bit thin and the malt has a slight taste of being burned. The brewer seems to imply that this is a beer suitable to drink with oysters, but that is not at all what makes a stout an oyster stout: it’s the oyster shells that were used to clarify the beer. They were cheaper than, say, isinglass, because oysters used to be a poor man’s food and mountains of shells were readily available. No oysters were used in this one, probably. The label is nothing special.

Smooth and velvety. Lacking a bit of body, but has a good hoppy taste which gives it some depth.

mariuszek (336) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 15, 2015
Pours coffee brown, thin head. Weak aroma of coffee, chocolate, caramel and some metallic notes. Same in taste, thin body, roasty low bitter finish. Still the beer is smooth and easy drinking.

Foffern (1384) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep, dark brown to black color with a light brown head. Malty aroma of chocolate, coffee, sweet liqourice, dried fruit and some caramel. The flavor is malty and sweet as well with chocolate, lactose, roasted malt and some liqourice. Has a medium body, and a light bitterness. Has a nice aroma with fruity tones. Great taste.

wozap (250) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - APR 8, 2015
Czarny kolor, piana średnia, zdobi szkło. Aromat palonych słodów, troche czekolady z nutą przypraw, podobnie w samku plus paloność. Goryczka zaznaczona, przyjemna.

VRobertovich (37) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2015
UPDATED: APR 4, 2015 Dark ruby beer, low carbonation, creamy off-white head. A touch of toffee and biscuit aroma, faint woody hop, and a dry finish. Relatively bland and watery for a stout.

N3lson1 (378) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2015
Drank in a tall glass poured from a large bottle. Smell of deliciousness. Pours dark with little to no head. Barely tastes of oyster and delicious malts. A good brew!!

puredelusion (115) - Lviv, UKRAINE - MAR 22, 2015
0,5 bottle. Pours dark brown colour with small beige, mostly diminishing head. Smooth aroma of coffee, caramel, chocolate, malts. Flavour is light to medium sweet, some chocolate notes. Finish is dry and short. Light body, thin texture, flat carbonation. Nothing too exciting, but drinkable.

Turtles (172) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2015
Tap @ Tennstopet. Faint sweetish aroma. Taste of brewed coffee and toffee. Quite rich flavor but not that complexed, dry aftertaste of mild bitterness and cherries.
