wedgie9 (2528) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Tasted from a 12oz bottle purchased at West Lakeview Liquors. Just a bit of a gusher, this beer pours nearly black with a thick tan head that slowly settles into lace. The nose is darkly roasted malt with milk chocolate, and a prune aroma. The flavor is also quite fruity with prune and raisin along with the super roasted malt and some dark chocolate bitterness. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long fruity and bitter finish.

Sammy (9981) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2010
Jason’s bottle, brought from Spain. Medium brown, big cheesy head. Sour in aroma. You can see the carbonation bubbles. Coffee grounds and horse blanket - in the taste! Even Guiness is better as a stout.Carbonation right there. Youc an drink some of it.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 7, 2010
11.2 oz bottle. Dark brown with a big, thick, foamy light tan head that lasts a while and sticks to the glass. Lactic aroma with chocolate and some light fruit... weird. The flavor is tart up front with some chocolate, and acidic malt. Medium body with a lively foamy carbonation and a dry, chalky mouth feel. Not sure if this one was starting to sour or not, kind of weird aroma and taste for a Stout.

rand (1297) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 7, 2010
Bottle 33 cl from Esclat in Vall (Spain). Black beer with high tan foam and good fizz. Nose of coffee and dark chocolate, burnt key and average acidity. The taste is slightly soft, roasted, creamy, earthy, black fruit and vegetable. Final not too dry, note of cardamom on the roast which dominates the hop.

after4ever (6925) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2010
330. Pours a muddy near-black with a positively outrrrrageous rocky tan head. You have to say "outrrrrrrageous" like John Cleese as the French castle captain of the guard in The Holy Grail for that to work right. Very dry nose with plenty of coffee and cocoa nibs. Watery body, almost medium, soft carb. Coffee, cocoa, and no real oysters or brine on the mid-palate. Why call it an oyster stout then, you ask? Search me. Are spanish oysters migratory or non-migratory? Maybe that’s part of the problem. Tasty enough, though. Mild cocoa finish.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Bottle. Looks promising, dark brown with beige head. Chocolate and caramel aromas. Very thin palate. Milk, toasted malt, chocolate and cola tastes. Odd.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2010
11.2oz bottle from The Wine & Cheese Place in Clayton, MO outside of St. Louis. Pours a deep brown, almost black colored body with a two finger-width, dense and frothy, brown colored head that collapses slowly and leaves a layer of frothy lacing throughout the session. Aroma is sweet malts and a good amount of cocoa with some sour, dark fruits. Some caramel and a decent roast with some acidity, berries, and a touch of coffee. Flavor is pretty raw, hard roasted, acidic sweet malts with some chocolate and lactose sourness. More coffee and a few traces of caramel and more dark fruits before this finishes dry with a light coffee bitterness that leaves a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and high, lively carbonation. Overall, an interesting stout. It seems at times that the roast, acidity, and sourness is too much, but then it seems to come back into balance. I don’t know, this isn’t bad, but it’s not great.

Bottle. Dark brown pour, small tan head. Roasted malt, milk, chocolate sweetness in the aroma. Flavor is much drier and bitter. Strange stout.

bhensonb (12959) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Bottle from Pizza Port Bottle Shop. Pours very black with a huge foamy beige/tan head that clings. Smells sweet like a milk stout. Medium body with foamy carbonation. It seems a bit unsweet. Flavor is chocolate and burnt malt, though fairly smooth. It is pretty dry and pretty bitter. It is in fact delicious.
