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's rating

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.

Served from nitro tap in a tulip glass. Had thick light brown head with characteristic wait for it to settle. Malty sweet aroma, but first taste was exceptional. Exactly as described with the super smooth palate, creamy sweet with the bite of dark chocolate and coffee malts. Light on the hops but overall tops in my book.

Draft at Washington St. Ale House in Wilmington. Thin creamy head. Medium bodied. Smooth and creamy palate. The flavor profile is kind of one dimensional, showcasing deeply roasted malts. No chocolate or coffee noted. Ashy, dry finish. Pretty straightforward. Medium bodied.

Poured into tulip glass from bottle, pretty tan head but not much aroma. Medium bodied at best. Chocolate and roasted grain taste with slight sweetness, mild hops edge in the finish.

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 (3992) - 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.
