3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from Kalamazoo megabev. Pitch Black pour with a few inches of offwhite head that settled to be fairly dense. Smells a lot like root beer - vanilla and a bit of licorice, sweet aquatic scents are evident but just slightly. Lots of carbonation. Sweet and savory Carmel taste, toasty and good. Finish is a bit salty and predominantly dry. This is a good savory solid stout with not too heavy of a body.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2018 Nice full chocolate / coffee aroma. Gently carbonated, quite high foam, short lasting. Based on the smell I would expect full body with nice rounded coffee taste , however seems a bit like a big americano coffee. I taste the oysters very gently, the soft salt as a first taste impressions is nice. A bit of bitterness, not too much, makes this beer interesting.

Bottle 0,355L. Very dark, ruby brown color with finger of creamy, light brown head. Aroma of sweet coffee, tobacco and oyster, I guess, as it's brewed with oysters. Taste is light bitter with caramel, coffee and wood. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Drago7 (984) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 16, 2017
Zapach: dziwny. Taki jakby ciastowy, aksamitny. Z nutą czerwonych owoców i lekka słodyczą. Smak: czekoladowe, palone. Posmak słodki ciastkowy. Light Body. Delikatna goryczka, ale fajna…. Posmak poza tym palony. Aksamitne.

Medium to thin bodied. Crisp & clean on the palate. Very dry.
Bitter pithy tastes with malt, berries, under ripe fruit & plum skins. Slightly smoky on the aft. Cakes (498) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black with a light tan head. A very good stout, but I was trying to taste the oysters. ZI only got a slight sense of them. More noticeable were the coffee notes and nutty roasted malt flavors.

Oyster stouts are rare in FL, so they come more from the Northeast or mid-Atlantic. I find that they add sweetness...maybe some to the texture. This one leans towards the sweet side. Has that macro feel. Decent beer though and worth the try. Probably better on draft. BillKismet (4165) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2017
Deep brown-black, ok head. Nose of roast chocolate and cookie dough and some sea air. Roasty chocolate and dark malt body, sea water, and some cookie dough sweetness. Rich and full-bodied. ryanscourt (1567) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2017
