Estebanik (829) - Lublin, POLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Czarne z wyraźnymi, rubinowymi przebłyskami. Piana tworzy się niezbyt wysoka, acz dość trwała. Aromat niezbyt intensywny - trochę słony, niczym morska bryza. Potem wychodzi trochę czekolady. W smaku mocno wysycone, palone, słony finisz. Leciutko kwaskowate od paloności. Przeciętniak raczej.

skmikeg (1816) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Pours black with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, sweet malts, molasses, and some mineral notes. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, slightly bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty, easy drinking oyster stout that is pretty well balanced.

On tap at American Tap, Dulles airport. Sweet chocolate and horehound candy aroma. Opaque black under a thin, lacy sheet. Rich dark chocolate flavour with a moderate bitterness and smooth, finishing and bodied as a milk stout. Moderate to medium carbonation, full body.
