COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
SEDUCTIVELY SMOOTH Our brewers have poured their hearts and roasted malts into this rich, slightly sweet stout. Luscious notes of coffee and chocolate accent the smooth, creamy mouth feel. We will not apologize for any amorous affairs resulting from the consumption of this beverage

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - MAY 22, 2002
Sampled this with the brewmaster himself. Opaque black body, steady brown head, releasing chocolate malt and earthy aromas. Oysters are not detectable as they impart a mineral quality and nothing else. Rich, dynamic coffee and chocolate flavor bolstered by hidden fruit and grain, fairly light bodied (very porter-like), goes down buttery smooth. Malty and complex while managing to avoid ever becoming sickly sweet, with a moderate coffee finish, lacking the ever-so-slight bitterness my mouth was expecting. Near perfect otherwise.

On tap. Description seemed to indicate that this was an oyster stout, but I don’t see anything here about it. Deep dark brown pour with a nitro tap. Didn’t really get any of the saltiness I was hoping for, mostly just a rich sweet stout. Lots of chocolate throughout.

Not much for an aroma. Smooth mouthfeel but almost comes across watery. The taste is all about the roasted malts. Maybe confused with chocolatey notes. Very drinkable but not that pleasing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours jet black with a thin offwhite head. Aroma of roast, dark chocolate, molasses and alcohol. Taste follows, quite bitter, like bakers chocolate and bitter coffee

JStax (3823) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2015
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a darker brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma is dry, ashy, mildly roasty. The taste has subtle sweetness and roast. Medium body and soft carbonation. Not bad.

As someone who enjoys stouts I was put off by this one in the pour. I poured from bottle into English pint and the cola brown stout with a fan head seemed on the thin side of med body. The lighter roasted malt, leather and chocolate aromas put me off to. About half way through to glass though I started to change my mind. The amazing drink ability of this stout after a winter of harder tastes makes this the perfect spring change over beer for me. Taste was same as aroma.

joejames (366) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours black with a deep red hue. Frothy two finger brown head. Some lacing and retention. Aroma is lightly roasted black patent malt. Taste is bittersweet with most of the bitterness coming from the dark malts. Medium bodied, adequate carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes slightly bitter. Tasting notes of chocolate malt, vanilla, weak coffee and roast. Nice, basic, easy drinking stout.

Tap offering, could have sworn i rated this before, but guess not..pours like a guinness with some nitro action eventually settling to a medium black color with a foamy tan head atop..nose is roasted stout goodness..easy drinking for sure..low abv..could definitely have a few..smooth chocolate milk character to it..good local stout
