Draught. Clear very deep dark red-brown colour. Beautiful creamy beige steady light brown head, which lasts for a long time and leaves a very nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke and coffee. Good mouthfeel. Pleasant roasted maltiness in the flavour with some smoked turf, coffee, and a pleasant soft bitterness. Dry roasty bit smoky finish. Yum!

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Nice roasted aroma. Had a decent head. The flavor is hard to describe except to say in that the obvious that it gave it an oyster flavor! Was also bitter and had a dry finish. Anyway it tasted pretty good which is the most important thing.

2009-05-15. Very dark brown body with a creamy tan head and lace. (4+) Flavour is interesting, a tangy character to the dark malt. Roasty malt is present but not strong, dark malt base. Bitterness grows as it goes on. (6+) Light roast in aroma, I swear I smell oysters but it my just be a combination of my imagination and the arrival of a plate of mussels at the next table. Muted malt. (6+) Creamy average plus palate. (3+) On tap at the brewpub.
