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

On draught at the Sansom Street Oyster House in Philly. Opaque chestnut brown to near black in appearance with a paper-thin mocha head. Very sweet molasses and maple sugar aromas. Slight chalky hardness (to be expected) with a flavors of burnt chocolate, maple syrup and prunes. Finish is dry and surprisingly clean. If you’re in Philly you must seek this beer out. One of a kind!

The problem with Yards’ Love Stout is that once you try it, you’ll never have respect for Guiness again, and until they get this stuff on tap in more places, you’ll be left with a not-so-satisfying Guiness to drink. I guess you could say I really like this beer. If you can find it, DRINK IT. Then you’ll understand.

Opaque as a stout should be. Nice lingering tan head to contrast the black below. Toasted, pretzel-like aroma. Slightly oily mouthfeel dissipates as bubbles bite the tongue making way for slightly piny roasted grain flavor. Great finish that lngers long so you can enoy the flavor long after the swallow.

Not what I expected. Not sure what flavor elements the oysters add, but this is nicely sweet, strong and full flavored and exceptionally smooth going down.

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.

Very malty with a bit of a roasty texture. Still a very pleasing brew.

Yards Love Stout - 5.5% abv Was happy to see this on tap at Memphis Taproom the other night. I also had a pint at Yards a few months ago and it was exceptional both times. Dark with small tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Sweet, Smooth and flavorful. The oysters really add a nice compliment to the roasted malt flavor. Yes it is still brewed with oysters, but is no longer bottled. Hope to find this on tap again next week when I’m back in Philly.

Very good! Opaque with a thin tan head. Lots of coffee in the nose. The palate is rich without being overly sweet. A good blend of cholate malt and roasted barley. The hops play a balancing role. Bone dry finish.
