355ml bottle from Brewdog.com (£3.49):PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2013
Black with amedium brown head that halves in size and stays as a thin, very slightly patchy one.
Light, sweet chocolate and some roasted malts with a hint of coffee. I could detect some cocoa and a definite hint of smoke.
Sweet malts and a lot of chocolate with a hint of coffee again. The taste is pretty basic with some sugar and a few earthy notes.
Light medium and smooth with a slightly creamy feel. There is a definite dry texture to the beer and some sweetness as well.
Pretty disappointing to be honest and not a beer I would recommend, not because it was a bad stout but because it was so basic throughout. Whilst drinkable this one was just a little too bland to really enjoy.
Bottle at home, shared with Mathieu 87. Bought at Geers.
APPEARANCE: black beer, stable beige head.
NOSE: chocolate, little vanilla, rather bitter, lots of burned malts, little salt even.

12 oz bottle This was a gift from friends at Holden beach. The stout poured a deep black with beige head that quickly dissipated. The aroma was of light chocolate and roasted malt. This is a good stout and fun to drink. I find the oyster taste difficult to detect. The concept is interesting. Carbonation was average and the body medium. the finish was typical stout with roasted malt and chocolate. zacgillbanks (5661) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2013

Yeasty with a little coffee aroma. Black as my heart with a dark tan head. Tastes zingy citrus at first then a nice palate covering coffee cream. Great stout. Not much hint of oysters but then again i can’t remember the last time I had one. jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Pours ebony black with medium sized tan head. Nose is dark malt and coffee. Nice and creamy on the palate, with flavors of dark roasted malt, slightly burnt coffee and a hint of hops on the finish. Could not detect any oyster flavors. A good, though, not great, stout.Stands up well to a loaded pastrami and cheese sandwich on pumpernickel with a huge dill pickle. icehawk (876) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2013
