Pours black with a coffee colored head. Milk chocolate and smoky roasted malt aroma. Flavor is sweet caramel with coffee, chocolate, and smoky roasted malt. Dark fruitiness in middle with a light salty brininess and mineral chewiness. finishing with roasted coffee. Nice oyster stout . Leafs93 (2305) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Pours deep dark black with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is roast, espresso, dark chocolate. Taste is mild bitters with a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied, light bodied and silky smooth. Nice. AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. No bottle date. Pours brownish with a bit of a tan head. Aroma has raisins and light chocolate and molasses and sweet caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, some rum raisin, other fruits, a touch of chocolate and perhaps salty brine. Medium bodied without much alcohol presence. Finishes dark fruity sweet with caramel. Tasty, a bit heavier rum raisin than should be, but also caramelly. 13.8 John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle. Black with a soapy thin head. Aroma is cocoa, black licorice, and roasted malt. The taste is very complex - cocoa that comes in waves, a subtle dry finish from the oysters, some earthy notes, a little dark fruit, and oak wood. Very smooth full body, with average carb. I love this. A+

Pours pitch black with a one finger khaki head with nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate, bakers coco, burnt wood, and some light mineral notes. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with both milk and dark chocolate notes, light mineral/brine notes, and roasty notes. has a medium body with a very creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty oyster stout that has a nice palate. glennmastrange (2871) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle. Moderate toasted, dark chocolate and mild coffee aromas for the malt, light herbs and earth fro the hops and yeast, with soy sauce and a hint of sea shore in the background. Head small, creamy, brown with some slippery lacing and good legs and is fully diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then the long finish is lightly to moderately acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, watery with a lively carbonation, and a finish that’s a little sticky. A Foreign Stout deep and rich in aroma and bold in flavor. bkurtz (1096) - Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle - Pours dark brown with creamy, small, but lasting head. Toasted malts with earthy notes. Some off flavors in this one, not for me. slowrunner77 (12051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"A nice rendition of an oyster stout, done export style. Fairly rich and robust with lots of dry roasted grains and some chocolate coming through. Just a hint of brine in this enjoyable brew. Really dig the style." HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Great example of the style, with a nice roasty character and a touch of briny or mineral note. I think this really captures the Export/Foreign stout style nicely, deviating from more typical stouts just slightly enough that a blind drinker could tell something was up.
