Thanks to the kind soul that shared this at a recent Tampa Crew Tasting. Pours a medium brown with an off-tan head. Nose is earth, some dry cocoa, and some roasted malts. Flavor follows. Light to medium in body and earthy all over.

Bottle shared by JCB. Cheers, Jason. Very dark brown pour with a silky lighter brown head. Nose is nutty, roasty, fruity. Taste adds a bit of salty and earthy sweetness. Silky palate. Unique. Just a stunner all around.

OmegaX (1249) - Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2012
This was a nice stout. Aroma is roast and smoky with a touch of mineral qualities to it. Flavor is the same with a nice touch of smoke and roast with a light saltiness and cocoa. Good stuff.

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2012
What a nice and dry stout this one was. Lots of cocoa and yeast in the nose here. The taste is a tad smoky with more cocoa, dry leaves and earthy. Finishes like a rich porter and enjoyably so.

What an awesome label! Bottle thanks to Jeremy I believe. Pours a cloudy black color with a large light brown head. A sweet nose of milky chocolate and roast. A very smooth sweet Brown Ale-like mellow stout with lactose, at times aggressive roast, caramel. Very good.

Black with light tan head. No aroma. Taste is malty with a bit of roast. Little roast, good body. Nothing to get excited about here.

DoublEE (784) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2012
The taste is really nice, and there is definitely a mineral saltiness at the back of the palate that really distinguishes this as an oyster stout. Very rich front palate too, nice roasty malty stout flavors, some coffee and cream flavors too. A really flavorful beer that’s salty and a little sweet, very nice. super tasty oyster stout.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bomber from the brewpub. Really handsome pour, a smoky, dusky dark brown with a head that’s by turns silken and gritty. Gnarly erster nose, filled with hints of mild smoke along with almonds and understated fruits. Fine, creamy mouthfeel but not excessively heavy. Taste is fantastic, adding nice molasses at the base and hints of brine throughout. Complex and awesome.

Ratman197 (9648) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, roastiness, coffee and saltiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roatiness, coffee, bitter chocolate, saltiness and light vanilla with a smooth lingering roasty finish.

Thanks Bauermj. Pours a dark opaque black with burnt brown edges and one finger of dense chestnut tan head. Nose is heavy with black strap molasses and the kind of almost smokey character that comes from roast barley. Light minerality and saline character present. Papery in the flavor, stale grain and bitter molasses/burnt sugar. Acidic dark grain/coffee character. Not too crazy about this one.
