BigBeer45 (1498) - Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle, this stout had a brown/black pour and made a one finger light tan colored head that lowered to a partial cover and ring, I cold only see some bubbles flowing up the sides of the glass unless the glass was placed against a light, then, I could see a center flow of bubbles in the glass, it left some nice lacing on the sides of the glass, the aromas were dry roasted malt and some coffee, some hints of smoke and salt (?) from the oysters, and a little caramel, it had flavors of dry roasted malt and some coffee, the mouth feel was light on the palate, a little creamy feel, average carbonation, a simple roasted malt stout with little else on the nose and palate.

12 oz bottle @ Hellbenders. Pours a dark balck with a decent tan head. Aroma is a nice caramel and chocolate malt spruce hops and a slight smoke. Taste is nice and smooth with a slightly smoky flavor. Finish is a bit dry but still easy to drink.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Nice and dark. Creamy in texture. There is a distinct oyster aroma that might turn some people off. Taste is full bodied with roasted malt and little hops.

Arayaga2 (2183) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Dark brown with a tiny skim of off-white head. Aroma is caramel with some minerality and roast. Taste is the same, with more coffee notes, and dry, without being acrid, or unmalty. $1/12oz

mjakopa (266) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - OCT 24, 2012
Pours a dark colour with little head. Smells of a stronger coffee and toffee aromas with some chocolate. Taste is slighty hoppy with hints of citrus and malts. Not quite sure where to put this one, theres a strange aftertaste that I could only describe as somewhat salty... In general a good stout, but a little on the thin side.

dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - OCT 21, 2012
poured into snifter, dark black but some light still shining through and one finger brown head. moderate lacing down the glass. the aroma is heavily roasted, strong coffee and some chocolate present but mostly strong coffee bean aroma. the taste i would say is more subdued than the aroma im picking up a lot of coffee and roasted notes but the body is pretty thin and heavily carbonated. this is my introduction to an oyster stout and im not noticing any significant difference from any other style of stout, i have read in some reviews of other oyster stout there is a brininess or saltiness to the beer and im not picking up any of that here. over all though this is a well rounded stout with great roasted character.

The beer has a very unique palate, which I enjoyed quite a bit. This brew is a must try for any stout lover. Dark, easy drinking, big flavor.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2012
Dark dark brown, with a medium offwhite head. Aroma of malts, and not much else, for me atleast. Taste is pretty bland, but sweet. I guess its okay, for the low abv.
