COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

zacgillbanks (2249) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This black beer has ruby red highlights. It has rich red fruity and roasted flavours, notes of leather and brine? with a bitter tart finish.

Cory (304) - , California, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle. Aroma was pretty muted with chocolate, dark roasted malt, and toast notes. Taste is similar but with some bitter across the palate. Not much else. I was glad there was no oyster taste cause that seems like a bad combo but i was at least willing to try, right?

nilsas (1289) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUN 18, 2014
God duft av frukter, sjokolade og vanilje. Dyp sort farge. Lite skum, liten ring langs kant. Nydelig fruktig smak med en anelse sjokolade.

EvilCat (80) - FRANCE - JUN 22, 2014
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

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2008
Black with medium beige head. Sweet aroma with notes of roasted malt,liquerice and coffee notes. Flavor likewise with a grassy and somewhat perfurmed end.

obguthr (3754) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Charcoal, bark, and dark roasted barley malt aroma. Clear mahogany, thick tan head, good lace. Roasted malt flavor with a conspicuous grassy hop accent. Fine balance, not very complex. A bit tinny and chemical. Ok, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

nick76 (4212) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2010
The aroma is right on par for the style with toasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a slight saltiness. The appearance is dark brown with an average head. The taste is like the aroma without any oysters detectable save a bit of saltiness. The palate is smooth but not very thick. Overall a good drink that I could keep drinking all day but seems lackluster somehow.
