3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a headless black, but not the sludge-like consistency of Imperial stouts. Oddly, the first smell I note is apples, also mild English hops and very roasty malt. I donít find the nose up to some of the prior reviewers. I could swear though, that there is a sea breeze in the bottle. Very thin body and flavor. Mostly sweet and roasty, but watered down, somehow. Finish is almost stark, dry and without alot of character. This is a very drinkable, fruity stout, suitable as n accompaniment to meals, but overall, unremarkable. I think SilkTork has stock in the brewery...

Gift from SJ. An interesting odd stout.
Dark brown pour with a dark chocolate and raosted malt aroma.
A toasred, dry roasted taste with a mild sweet finish. Interesting.

Bottle. Thin dark brown pour with a tan film. Aroma of oats and fresh cardboard. Flavors of water and watery roasted malt. The body is thinner than the old menís hair on the bottle....itís actually refreshing at times, as if it were the Gatorade ģ of stouts!

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pours brown with a loose tan head, I can tell itís thin by the pour. Aroma, slight smoke, oats, a hint of a brand new freshly cut cardboard box. Flavor, some fruits, sweet oats, some slight hints of roasted malts and chocolate. Body is very thin and watery, and really detracted from the beer.

Too sweet for the light body but the toffee? flavor melds well with the roastiness. Still quite drinkable. Finishes light and dry.

Cask@The Market Porter, Borough, London. A bit too sweet and soft for a stout, quite light, with some sweet caramel, and then a touch of roasty, chocolatey bitterness. Needs more body and length of flavour.

Bottle. Itís quite dark with a little reddish hue. It produced no head whatsoever. I found it somewhat refreshing due to the faint light notes. The oyster taste is existent. This would probably be better if it was paired with a meal, but itís an okay beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark with amber edges, but with virtually no head. Too watery in the mouth. I was pleased that I can actually taste oyster in it, along with typical stout flavors. Refreshing, but the elements arenít brought together very well.
