3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the Lobster House in Asheville. Pours almost opaque black into the glass, with a one-finger retentive choco-tan head that leaves thick lacing. Woody-smoked chocolate to the nose. Creamy mouthfeel, with roasted coffee and chocolate to the tongue. The finish is silky, of coffee. The sea salt comes through nicely with other trace minerals. Crisp and dry but extremely creamy and fluffy on the palate. Nice job.

Tap @ the lobster trap - Aroma is coffee with some minerality. Pours a dark brown with a milk chocolate head. Taste is sweet with dry finish. Has a nice creamy mouth feel. I’m not tasting the oysters. Overall pretty good!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Lobster trap. Pours black with a quarter inch of khaki foam that leaves lacing. As the beer warms the roasted noted on the notes become more prominent but are still not very demonstrative. Big roasted notes on the tongue. A little bit of bitterness on the finish. Nice!

On tap at the Lobster Trap in Asheville, NC. Pours dark brown with a creamy, dense beige head. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate and coffee. The flavor follows through with more chocolate and coffee. The mouthfeel is somehow creamy yet airy at the same time. A nicely done dry stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the restaurant, alongside a delicious salad. Super, super creamy, and full of gamey character. Just what you’d expect from a classic oyster stout in a place called the Lobster Trap/Oyster House. Well done. (#4317, 10/6/2011)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beer pours black with thick tan lacing. There is a mild aroma of stone and earth. The beer does have a hint of saltiness on the palate. It is brewed with oysters which is very unique. This beer looks a lot a heavier than it is. A pleasing beer that is a great accompaniment to seafood.
