2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hand pulled cask at the Running Horse, Leatherhed. The sticker on the pump clip titled this beer ’Whitstable Bay Oyster Stout’. Almost black with a creamy tan head. Roasty with a harsh edge and slight saltiness. Rather stale but not quite off. I would like to try this in fresher nick.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask gravity at Kent BF 2008. Black, dark brown edges. Nice coffee-ish stout, roasty, really quite good for a Shep’s beer, no real Shep’s yeast. Not a lot of oyster, bit of fullness and richness on end maybe. It’s reasonably light in the body. Tasty though.
