Draft at Pizzeria Paradiso, Dupont Circle, shared by ryan. Dark, thin black pour with a light tan head. Dark, roasty aroma with licorice and berries. Fruity roast flavor with apple and pear notes. Bitter, dry finish. Good, easy drinking. Very light, but it packs a lot of flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle, says 5.2% ABV. Served in a Sam Adams BL glass, the beer pours dark brown with a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and an aroma that I canít identify. I assume thatís from the oysters, but I could be wrong about that. This brew tastes good, I can taste roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a minerally and slightly salty taste that Iím pretty sure comes from the oysters. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, but it does seems a bit thin for a stout. Good carbonation. Drinkability is good, itís smooth, a little bit slick and goes down easy. In my opinion this brew wasnít quite as good as Harpoonís Island Creek Oyster Stout, but itís still a good brew and definitely worth a try. Iíd buy this again in the future.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark copper brown with an offensively light beige creamy head. Nose is sweet, earthy, grainy, some day old coffee, chocolate. Tastes like Warsteiner Cola...Flavor leaves much to be desired, crisp, sweet, strange, bitter and astringent. No idea whats going on here but I dont likes it.
