3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear very dark brown color with a voluminous brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of chocolate, light roastiness and a briny note. The taste is chocolate, floral and fruit hop notes, light smoke and roastiness and a mineral quality from the oysters. Medium bodied and quite smooth. Good stout.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is rich and smoky with a firm undertone of molasses. It pours a dark, nearly opaque mahogany with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, beige head. Flavor is like roast coffee with a smidgen of barleywine and a touch of molasses. Texture is fizzy and lively and just a little on the thin side for a stout.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2oz bottle. claims 5.2% how excited am i to try my first oyster stout?? words cannot express. the beer pours a clear deep brown under a creamy light beige head. a pleasant but mild cocoa powdery aroma. nothing suggests oyster yet. the flavor is a tad bit salty and bitter. tonic water notes. not as robust as i was expecting which is ok. light body with medium carbonation. the only oyster stout i’ve had so i don’t have anything to compare it to. it is much different than the heavy bodied, sweet, roasty stouts though. overall, it was a different take on one of my favorite styles and even though my rating is pretty average, i wouldn’t mind drinking this again. fun to drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Wharf Aalborg, on St. Patricks Day. The colour appears black, but when you hold it up to the light, it is a dark/ruby red colour, with a tan head. Aroma is of roated malt, chocolate, toffee, caramel and some sweet malts. Flavour is pretty much the same as the aroma, but with notes of liquorice and some coal. It has a medium body, and has a creamy and velvety mouthfeel. Overall a good Irish stout!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, Porterhouse Dublin
Picture-perfect looking nitro stout.
Roasted nose; meaty, deep roast coffee, bit of smokiness.
Medium body and carbonation, creamy texture that dried out quite quickly.
Meaty roasted malts, bitter cocoa and espresso. Bitter finish, dry, lingering smokiness.
Never reall had an "oyster" stout before, not sure if this has oysters in it or not, but very nice regardless.
