Bottled 33cl. Pitch black and gushing unfortuately. Apple in the nose which isn’t that inviting. Dissapointing and I am not writing more ;-)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Been looking for my notes on this for a while now, a tasting from way back in Jun 2008.
Will do this on notes alone so a little all over the show!
’Tawny, brownish black body, brown in the shallows and murky. Big frothy, creamy tan head, held out for a while before receding, laces well. Deep, dark, chocolate, milky, mud-cake nose, nicely rounded, thick, light spice and warming, some toffee and brine, late hit of dark berries and charred wood. Smooth, velvety, slightly powdery mouthfeel, touch of oyster water precedes. Nice roundness of complex malts. Body is medium and it fills the mouth well. Rich, dark bitter/sweet chocolate with a milk chocolate edge. Light break in of burnt wood, a little burnt malt tannins. Slightly salty length of dark and deep malts, a little peat, ash, vanilla bean. Good drinking, enough complexity to savour each sip. Easily a dessert beer, not for the likings of your average. Very enjoyable Stout’ - (33cL, BBE 08, International Beer Store W. Leederville)

it’s hard to find any oyster taste, if you didn’t know it was an oysterstout you probably would not have tasted it. Creamy stout with some sweetness, might be my favorite beer from de Scheldebrouwerij. Had this at a friend’s place, who got it in one of those beersubscriptions.

Almeno le conchiglie le hanno usate, però per una vera oyster stout ci vorrebbe l’ingrediente vero; molto pulita e sobria, lascia un discreto spazio alla nota salmastra del finale che però non è fra le più aggressive. Buona.
