UPDATED: MAY 2, 2013
35,5 cl bottle @ wPBF13, BBE 02.05.2013
Aroma has coffee notes, nuts and hints of licorice. Flavour has somewhat salty licorice, some coffee notes, milk chocolate and hints of ash. A bit too salty but nice anyway.
No signs of aging even though the BBE was really close.

Sigmund (6952) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 26, 2013
355 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.5%. Black colour, ruby in the highlights. Large beige head. Nice aroma of dark chocolate, mildly roasted malts, mild coffee and woodwork. Medium dry flavour, fairly smooth, with the same elements as in the aroma. Very moderate hops.

TET (2793) - Kaarina, FINLAND - APR 26, 2013
A colabrown beer with a big, almost creamy and light brown head. Aroma is strongly roasted, but not burned, coffee and chocolate, that fresh the aroma, hint of lactose, the good aroma. Taste is roasted, liquirice, interesting salt, coffee and herbs. Complex and surprisingly, rich of nuancees. Almost medium bodied, quite high and smooth carbonation, nice to drink. The complex Dry Stout, ocean saltyness is great nuance and that differs positively this beer from the others, also lots of taste, I like this beer.

mkel07 (5424) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2013
355ml bottle from The Beer Cellar. Pours as black as a moonless night. Soft tan head with bitter sweet vanilla, liquorice and chocolate aromas. Thin bodied with good flavour and long strong finish.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 25, 2013
Brown pour, not much head to speak of. Roasted malt, coffee and salty oysters in the aroma. Big flavour, coffee and a saturation of heavy roast malt. Quite light bodied and quaffable. Finish is more coffee, a whack of hops, some smokiness. Nice.

Slipstream (2523) - USA - APR 24, 2013
Black pour with a chalk-colored lid. Malty, coffee aroma plus some sweet aroma hops and a touch of yeast. I liked the flavor on draft (at Rosamund) more than from a bottle. A toasty, light stout with an undercurrent of brine and shellfish. Lets hear it for seafood beers! Why stop with oysters?

djd07 (12575) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2013
Bottle as shown. Pours a dark brown with medium creamy beie head. The aroma is a bready malt and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with sweet roasted malt and chocolate with lingering dry finish. A good dry stout.

Cool_Bond (2436) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2013
Good fragrance with a moderate flavor. The aftertaste is left for a long while. Maybe a little dry but okay.

McGarnigle (631) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 22, 2013
Solid stout, but I didnt detect much oyster in it. Compare to Harpoons version, this is tame. Maybe FD has a little mineral roughness to it, but not much. Of course, a true oyster stout is an acquired taste. So they took the easy road.
