Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2008 On-tap at Bishops Arms, Järntorget. Gothenburg. Black color with a beige head. Taste and aroma of grain, very light roastiness, sweet malt and light hop bitterness. Creamy but very thin mouthfeel. Drinkable but watery and boring.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2008
Bottle. Black. Brown head. Smooth, easy and quite thin aroma and tast. There is some coffee and wood in it. Could be some dark chocolat as well. Little to thin...

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2008
Aroma is salty, light malt, fairly timid. Pours a dark brown, tan head. Saltiness again, bitter-sour finish. Body is light.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2008
500 ml bottle. Mostly lasting, fingerthick creamy chocolate head. Beautiful transparent dark brown to near black color with ruby highlights. Dark roasted malt aroma. Coffee notes and a touch of earthy hops. Taste is lightly burnt dark malts with notes of salty licorice and bitter chocolate. Well-bodied for a 4.5% beer. Quite fizzy. Dry malty, light bitter ending. A well-made, balanced and tasty Stout.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2008
Bottle. I prefer my stouts a little more, er stout? Lacks what would draw me to a good stout. Needs flavour, body and manliness. Or more lesbian if you’re a lady. Given to me colder than a polar bears nose which killed it a little more.

evilsoc (191) - WALES - SEP 18, 2008
Im amazed this looks as dark as it does. Lightly roasted/heavily toasted malts. thin feel to it. A suggestion of coffee in there somewhere with saltiness and black malt. Hops hard to detect. More like a mild. Far too pasteurised and in danger of being bland.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Bottle, from imdownthepub. Thanks Glen! Nice deep black, esp for a modest strength stout. Good layer of tan head. Butter, caramel, a bit of coffee, all surrounded with the familiar Marston’s sulfur quality. It seems less out of place in a stout than it does to me in their paler beers. Brisk burnt caramel roast, butter, peppery finish. Body light, but seems right here. This is stout as refresher, rather than stout as dessert.

Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2008
Had a malty aroma dark brown/ treacle colour with an off white head . Had a mllow malty taste not too heavy was fizzy in the mouth but went down smooth.

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2008
Bottle 500ml from Waitrose, Christchurch. I had this along with a Guinness Foreign Extra, and I must say that there is no comparison. The Oyster Stout pours a dark brown, almost black, with not much of a head on it. Certainly some caramel and dark fruits in the aroma. Again, dark fruits and caramel coming through in the taste. Quite a thin mouthfeel. All-in-all, a fairly average brew.
