3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Volo. Pours a dark brown with orange edges and moderate-sized, soapy tan head. Aroma is quite roasty with lots of coffee, some dark chocolate and hints of fishiness. Flavour is also very roasty with coffee, a little cocoa and the oyster juices in the finish. Not that I have a lot to compare it to, but a nice oyster stout.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This stout poured a deep black colour with a serious lack of a nice creamy head. To the nose there are scents of caramel, coffee, smoke and maybe a little soy sauce? First sip was slightly thin but flavor wise is pretty good. Flavours of roasted malt and a little coffee, lightly sweet with very low carbonation. Finish is burnt with a long drawn out flavor of burnt.

2013-11-01. Black body with a small tan head and lace. 3+ Aroma of roast, very mild dark malt. Flavour is moderately roasty throughout, lightly dusty, light tangy quality in the finish, roast lingers. Whisper of dark chocolate as it warms up. Average plus bodied palate, good amount of carbonation. Okay. On tap at Bar Hop, Toronto

Sample on tap at Imbibe (Kitchener, Ont.). Pours black with off-white head. Aroma: malty, but not much there. Interesting sweet vanilla taste, some chocolate and coffee. Bitter finish. Carbonation is light. Ok beer, but forgettable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours an opaque black with a bit of brown head. Nice and smoky with good minerality. Not sure it’s the best oyster stout I’ve had, but definitely up there.

Tap at the brewery. Deep black pour with a thick sticky head. Fairly roasty aroma with soft notes of pepper and a touch of light fruit. Quite earthy and cocoaish. Pretty solid stout actually. Finishes nicely dry.
