Dublin í03: Dark black, nice thick white head. Some sweet chocolate/coffee aromas, salt water. Tastes like your typcial stout plus some salt water or seaweed. Thereís a sweetness that comes through that seems to come from the oysters though I canít quite place it. I enjoyed this beer.

Draft at the Porterhouse in London. Uncarbonated and opaque with a reddish brown hue. Aroma was malty and sweaty socks. Flavor was malty and coffee. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium bodied stout with excellent lacing.

[Draft at Porterhouse, London] A pitch black beer with a firm creamy lasting chocolate brown head. The aroma is very lightly malty. The flavor starts of roasted, but thin for a stout, then comes flavors of caramel, before a slight salty (yes, salty - a first for me) end sets in.

Not a bad stout, a bit unusual at first but then you get used to it, it has a unique aroma and taste, possibly because of the Oysters. I donít think Iíd drink too many in the one sitting but certainly I like it before a meal.

The stout is smooth, first you taste the flaked barley, then the more complex flavor as it warms up a little.
Try it with their oysters if you are in Dublin!

Reddish black pint with a half-inch of white foam, just like each of the other stouts on tap at Porterhouse. Chocolate malts and a tangy oystery brine scent drift up from this brew. A little salty on the flavor, chewy texture, and a dry, bitter finish -- best part of this stout.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thick, rich chocolate and mild roasted malt in the aroma. Almost opaque dark brown body topped by a creamy smooth, fine bubbled, tan, nitro head that stands forever and coats the glass. Strong roast, licorice, chocolate malt flavours with a salty undertone. Medium body is somewhat sticky and syrupy with smooth soft carbonation. Sampled at the brewpub in Temple Bar (May-06).

Deep black with a huge nitro white lacing head. Light aromas, chocolatey, fruitier than any stout Iíve ever had. Some coffee. Too watery and light flavoured. Unimpressive.

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.

@ Charlies. Pours dark nearly black with a red hew and a lovely thick creamy white head and lacings. Caramel, spices and a vague roasted note. Medium and smooth palate. Good.
