Brewed with fresh oyster. A smooth drinking aromatic stout with a discernible but unidentifiable aromatic aspect. Not suitable for vegetarians. This gently flavored stout has a roast malt character, full body and an aromatic character from the Goldings hops. Fresh oysters added during the brewing process, lend a discernible yet unidentifiable note.

Apariencia: Marrón muy oscuro; casi negro y espuma que se ve reducida a una fina capa rápidamente. Aroma: Ligero y agradable. Sabor: A malta tostada con ese toque seco y ese algo diferente que imagino le aportan las ostras.

olio (5854) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours dark red-brown color with a large beige head. Slightly milky aroma with cocoa and faint chocolate, some distant orange peel notes on the background. Creamy and a bit fluffy palate, surprisingly fruity flavor, orange and some gooseberries, some bitter malts and faint cocoa notes. Lingering lactic finish. Not as good as I expected but decent anyway.

erickok (3410) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 24, 2014
Black body and frothy stable head. Not crazily rich in aroma, but roasted dark malts bit soy like, bit licorice root. Quite acidic actually, with roasted malts and a bit nutty and saline. Quite mineral like, like bone dry white wine can be but with a chocolate malt base. Nice beer in the style. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

ej (672) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2014
Taø @ Cardinal. Black with a thick and creamy tan head. Sweet and roasty, malt dominated aroma. Hints of chocolate and liquorice. Taste is sweet with moderate roast and loads of ash. Slightly pungent. Quite light bodied, almost watery and softly carbonated.

Bouteille. Bootlegger (Paris). Robe brune aux reflets rouges, petite mousse beige. Nez agréable de café et de toffee. Bouche douce et un peu sucrée, sur le grain de café, le malt grillé, saline légèrement piquante et un peu poivrée. Amertume bien présente surtout sur la finale teintée de café et de noix. Faible carbonation. Stout douce manquant un peu de corps et de caractère. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gorm (1069) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2014
Svart farve beige skum. Lukt av røstet malt, og krydder. Smak av røstet malt, krydder og en noe rar, søt - salt smak...kan det være en form for sopp...

Idiosynkrasie (3574) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2014
330ml bottle. Ruby red glowing, darkest brown colour with average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Roasty dark malty aroma, a salty touch, somehow sweet-ish, floral overtones, lavernder, bath salt. Taste is slightly roasty dark malty, moderately sweet, slightly fruity, hints of dark berries, plum, a touch of chocolate, lavender, bath salt; slightly soapy finish. All this soapy and salty stuff is reasonably fascinating at first sight, and may make you puzzling over its origin (oyster?); but further contemplation leads to the conclusion, whatever the origin is, its result, in the end, isn’t that damn f...in’ tasty either.

God duft av frukter, sjokolade og vanilje. Dyp sort farge. Lite skum, liten ring langs kant. Nydelig fruktig smak med en anelse sjokolade.

luttonm (2138) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUN 12, 2014
.33l bottle at Belgrade tasting. Black rich pour, foamy off-white head. Very sweet liquor, traditional english-style stout, some roasty notes. But also some sweet salt water. Very sweet, more than I like.
