2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Porterhouse Covent Garden. Deep brown pour with thick tan head.
Some roastiness in aroma plus the unidentifiable note which must be the oysters Bitter roasted taste and a hint of saltiness. Thin palate. Not my favourite

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Stockmann in Tallinn (€ 3,90) in Oct 2014. Pours a dark brown with a mahogany glare, and a tan creamy head - big, uneven and leaves some lacing. Nose is black bread sourness with roasty malts and unsweetened chocolate, but as it’s warmed some good deal of grassy herbal hops with moderate bitterness jump forward. Taste begins with very moderate roastiness, then turning more sweet of cocoa or chocolate, maybe even some berries, and finishes roasty and quite herbal bitter of the Golding hops. Somewhere in the middle I also get a faint saltiness - or maybe that’s just wishful thinking. Body medium, carbonation as well, palate somewhat sticky.
Had this on various occasions from bottle and once on tap at their London pub, but I just can’t seem to get excited by it.

Draft - Slightly soured malts, cinnamon and molasses. Deep brown with a light brown head. Cocoa, toasted malts and some light spice. Tasty, but not a typical oyster stout.

Halv pint på porterhouse. Smakar nästan som Guinness med det är något annat med eftersmaken!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"wish list cross-off. having liked their red more than the previous rating would indicate, i had high hopes for this as it was a 93,4 going in, and I really dig oyster stouts, but in that regard this beer was an utter failure. almost no brine or oyster presence AT ALL. What the hell?! There was a strong herbal/rosemary-ish aroma and flavor and light stout in the background, and that was pretty much it. MAYBE if I wasn’t looking forward to a good oyster stout, this beer wouldn’t have pissed me off so much, but it tasted more like a spiced ale or weird saison than an oyster stout, and was a total let-down. .

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown with a mirco-head and spotyy lacing. The taste is of toasted malt and some bitterness with some floral flavs. I detected a little saltiness in the back ground, and it was ok. If you live near the ocean, you’ll know the taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This glass of draft beer came from the Porterhouse brewpub across the street from Trinity College In the glass it was black but when held up to the light showed to be a dark garnet red. Big tan head. Really thick and sticky lacing. Nose of roasted malts. Bold body and a really creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is roasted malts, and while i could not detect oysters, there is something unique in the flavor. Nice bitter finish. Really good beer. Loved this one.

Aromes dolços de malta, llaminera, també amb un petit toc de salnitre. En boca el salnitre es fa més evident sembla com a pipes, també s’aprecia clarament sabors torrats de regalèssia i cafè. Bona cervesa.
