3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Porterhouse on Nassau Street in Dublin. Pours a heavy, opaque black with a bright white, creamy head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, toast and grain. The flavor is similar, sweeter with less roasted flavor. Finish is creamy and thick but not syrupy. Very well crafted beer, good session beer and probably their flagship next to the plain porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is such an unusual stout and definitely an acquired taste but I like. There is a definite taste of oyster layered in the more pronounced sweetness and a thinness on the palate and a dry finish.
