Bottle - Pours deep murky brownw iht a creamy tan head. Nose is dry with dark chocolate and a bit of ash, a light milkiness, a touch of toffee, and a hint of salt. Taste is more of the same, dry, lightly ashy roast, notes of chocolate, a bit of sweetness on the finish, balanced with a sharp coffee ground/chocolate bitterness. Milkiness on the long finish. Smooth, decadent body with velvet carbonation and a nice creaminess. Good stuff, but if you remove some of the sharp edges Id like this a lot more.

Location/Date:Bottle on August 26th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours opaque brown with light white/reddish head.
Aroma: Roasty malt, somewhat sweet.
Taste: Interesting concept. Roastiness up ufront, but then the oyster flavor kicks in, a little bit more salt, faint brinyness, faint chocolate.
Palate:Over medium body, creamy.

Summary: Interesting dry stout, oysters make for interesting flavor. Dont know if it would be an everyday thing for me, but a nice night cap after Alpine Duet and Sixpoint Bengali Tiger for a enjoyable 3 Tick Evening watching the Jets stink it up yet again on SNF.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. A: Pours a very dark burgundy color thats almost porteresque in its color shade. The head is a one finger mocha color with lowish retention, fading into a decent collar around the glass. Not much lacing. S: Typical of a good porter/stout, it features mainly coffee, slight darker fruit, and dark bakers chocolate. In addition, it features a briny saltiness in its scent that betrays its usage of oysters quite well. Im really enjoying how this smells, even if its not the strongest aroma in the world. T: Tart and fruity, with a light kiss of brine. Compared to the scent, theres much less coffee and chocolate in the flavor, and a lot more lactose and dark fruits. A bit acidic, as well. Its hard to find the usage of oysters in the flavor profile - but theyre there. Id like a little more roast here, but its a nice enough stout. M: Light bodied, with a prickly texture, high carbonation, and dry finish. Similarly to the flavor, its slightly acidic as it goes down the esophagus, but its still easy going down. In a way, it almost drinks like an Irish stout. O: This is one I can really see coming to its own on tap. A decent no-frills stout with great intentions, Id pair this one with (what else?) oysters.

Im not sure what it is about this stout, but I never seem to be able to square its rating with my experience of it. I suspect that they dry stout style is not really my cup of tea. I find this a rather unremarkable stout, watery with a rather one dimensional bitter roast to it. It is dry and it does have a certain salt tang to the finish which does give it some character. However, think my brain does not compute dry stouts, and it comes out as lacking depth and flavour to my taste buds.

DocLock (10205) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle from Capones. Pours hazy deep brown like root beer with 1-finger splotchy tan head. Nose is roasty dark malt, cacao, nuts, and minerals. Tastes malty, dry,, with hops, cacao, and a very mineral-rich organic flavor that Ive never experienced before and for the first time in my beer rating career fear that I cannot categorize accurately. At any rate, this one is a good stout, but that flavor element still has me befuddled. "Adrian, Im afraid, alright. Im afraid. For the first time in my life, Im afraid!" -Sly Stallone, to Talia Shire, in Rocky 1

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2012
Dark cola like pour with a tan lid and legs. Very aromatic on first sniff. Roasted malt, hops, coffee, burnt hair, chocolate and peat. Bitter and sweet on first sip. You can definitely taste the coffee and roasted malts. Sweetness from the chocolate, dark fruit and a hint of vanilla. The smoky characters would compliment a good cigar. Good, good stout and, yet again, great bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from total wine McLean. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Not a ton on the nose. A bit of chocolate on the tongue. Finishes with some tartness. The finish is probably my favorite part of the beer.
