imdownthepub (10001) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Black with cream head. Full bodied stout, heavy on the palate with a pleasant tarry, bitumen note initially. There is coffee and liquorice in the background, creamy and a hint of vanilla. The oyster addition seems to be just for body than flavour, but overall very decent and our beer of the night.

thebeertourist (4761) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2009
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark brown with a creamy light brown head. Complex roasted aroma, with hints of earth. Salty flavours, good roast, potent coffee. Soft. Difficult to see how it can be improved.

Geiserich (3297) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - NOV 1, 2009
Bottled: Aroma is light sourly, fruity and notes of roasted malt. Foamy, brownish head. Pitchblack color. Flavor is roasty with hints of sweetness and fruitiness. Dark chocolate and some coffee. Finish is very roasty with coffee notes. Dry bitter finish with a very special finish. Hard to describe, some saltyness, bitter hops and mybe conches?

asheft (2484) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2010
[bottle @ RBESG 2009, Grand Tasting] Salty roasted peanuts aroma with vanilla and smoke accents. Black appearance under bubbly beige. Dry and roasty flavour with moderate bitterness from black malt. Liquorice note. Smooth yet somehow dry feel.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Bottle. A - Deep black color with a large foamy beige head. Decent retention and little lacing left. S - Lots of burnt/roasted malts with chocolate and coffee smells. Faint brine smell as well. T - Similar to the nose. Good amount of burnt/roasted malt with dark chocolate and coffee flavors. Brine taste from the middle to the finish of the sip. Not very strong but definitely noticeable. Finishes with a slight licorice taste. M - Medium body with low carbonation. Fairly smooth beer but a bit thin for the style and flavors. A little bit of a drying finish. D - Decent. The body is all right, a little thin, but smooth. The brine taste might hurt drinkability a bit, especially when paired with the drying finish. Notes: Interesting stout with some briny twang that sets it apart. That also may hurt it a bit, depending on what you are looking for. Not necessarily my thing, but it wasn’t bad. A touch thin, but with such a low ABV that should be expected.

BlackHaddock (3492) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2012
Feb 2010: Brown 500ml bottle, poured into my huge ’Judas’ glass. Because of the size of the glass I could pour it roughly and did, the foaming head I produced was most impressive. Deep tan in colour it sat on a body of very, very dark stout. Burnt coffee and dark chocolate esters came from the brew, with hop bitterness in the background. The flavours that I picked up were again (like the smell) burnt coffee and chocolate. The aftertaste gave some liquorice hints as the mouth dried. Tries to be rich and creamy, but it just lacks that luxurious feel a really smooth Oyster Stout can provide. Easy to drink and at 4.8%ABV a good session stout.

harrisoni (13261) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2009
Cask handpull at Market Porter, Borough. Black with dark brown edges, thin tan head. Very tasty stout, full, rich, may even have oysters in it, it is that rich. Very good.
