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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

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

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
