Pours black with no head. Amazing coffee and chocolate aroma. It is indeed a dry stout, bordering perhaps a wee too much towards bitterness. However, the dryness does permit the nice roastiness and coffee and chocolate notes to come through in the flavor easily. The oysters give it perhaps a bit of kick; I'm not sure if its necessary or makes the beer better, but it does make the brew different. Overall, pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Solid dark brown with a white head. Aroma is worcheshire sauce, rye bread, wet dog. Relatively light bodied, umami on the palate. Taste is pumpernickel, soy sauce. Somewhat disappointing.

This is one of the best stouts Ive had and not a stout fan. Questioned the oysters but was a good beer with great flavor!

pours dark brown with a tan head. nose packs a punch of roasted malts, with smoke and maybe sweet vanilla in the background. taste is more roast and malts, along with coffee and earth - also some stong mineral/salty notes that i havent typically encountered in a stout. dry, with very mild bitterness and light to medium mouthfeel.

Bottle. Very dark brown. Sweet, salty, minerals. Complex and very impressive, yet highly drinkable.

bubbleflubber (2197) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Pours the deepest prune into the glass, with a fizzy tan head that reduces to nothing, including lace. The nose is of lightly roasted grains and some toasted malt. Flavors are of roasted malt, light smoke, burnt spent grain hulls, toasted bread and (just) an effervescent hint of sea salt. The bitters balance nicely, leaving a dry finish. The body is medium, flowing smoothly down the palate, providing an easy quaff. Very nice offering for a dry stout.

From notes. Bottle to shaker. Roasty toasty malt. A little chocolate and a little smoke. Somewhat salty also. Different, but pretty good too.

planky84 (2942) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle from the Microbar, Manchester. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Raisin and chocolate aroma. Dark fruit and chocolate flavour. Not bad.

12 oz bottle from Ds in Pittsburgh. Perfect color, but off a bit on aroma. Thin for a stout with very little taste of oyster. Could have been much better.
