Dublin ’03: Dark black, nice thick white head. Some sweet chocolate/coffee aromas, salt water. Tastes like your typcial stout plus some salt water or seaweed. There’s a sweetness that comes through that seems to come from the oysters though I can’t quite place it. I enjoyed this beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[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 don’t think I’d 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.

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).
