A light dark is how I can best describe this stout. The palate holds the malty flavours. Mine was served out of the fridge but I expect the licorice and milk chocolates hues to develop as it warms. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Noir c’est noir, il n’y a plus d’espoir !" Faut pas déconner non plus, il ne s’agit que d’une bière après tout ! Versée noire donc, mousse beige, c’est un Stout. Le nez est moins porté sur le café et le chocolat que sur le fruit. On trouve de belles notes de fruits rouges (fraise, framboise) et noirs (cassis, mûre, myrtille). Au delà, de grosses notes fumées (bacon) et enfin ces notes de café et de cacao qu’on aime retrouver dans n’importe quelle bière (avis 100% objectif et pas du tout personnel). En bouche, texture trop sur l’eau avec un manque criant de corps pour un Stout. Dommage, car les arômes sont là. La carbonatation n’est étonnamment pas mauvaise car on a carrément du pétillant sur la langue. L’alcool est maigre avec un 4.5% qui ne contribue pas du tout au corps. On retrouve le fumé, le cacao et le café mais la bête est maigre. La longueur est anecdotique, les levures sont mortes (bière pasteurisée hein...), le final et l’amertume sont quelconques. Attention, cette bière n’est pas mauvaise, aucune faute de goût mais ce n’est pas bien difficile quand il n’y a pas grand chose à proposer. On ne se plante que quand on a quelque chose à faire n’est ce pas ? Et là on peut dire que cette Oyster Stout est feignante ! Bouteille 50cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrève.

Botella 0,5L Color marron oscuro-negro.Espuma fina,pero no alta, media resistente, color beige. Aroma cafe, cereales, frutas. Sabor- cafe,cereales, algo ahumado,un dulzor suave con equilibrado amargor.El trigo le quita cuerpo y dencidad de sabor, esta acuosa, medio cuerpo. En la boca se queda amargor suave y sabor estraño que le da trigo, creo.

Pours dark black with a brown fading head and good lacing. Looks nice. Aroma has coffee, mint, roasted grain, oats and hint of the oysters. Taste is sweet, cloying, with bitterness in a medium finish with reasonable body for the ABV. Balanced, but not very exciting and too subtle for my taste.

Aspecto decente. Sin cuerpo. Acuosa. Sin olor. Sin sabor. Bebible si no hay otra cosa. Solo si no hay otra cosa.

Can. An OK stout. Not as rich and full bodied as I had expected. Nice bitter finish. Good with food.

darkseduction (737) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2017
50cl. Tiefdunkel, malzig, fast kein Hopfen. Besonders hervorzuheben die extreme Weichheit, keine Spur von kratziger, röstmalziger Bitterness. Sehr gelungen!

Zlotta (2878) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2017
0.5 l bottle from ’Kiosk Em Veedel’, best before November 2017. Opaque, black with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, light brown head. Faint, sweetish-malty, a bit roasty and slightly grassy aroma of chocolate, coffee, licorice and a touch of grass. Slightly sweetish, malty, moderately roasty and a bit grassy taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice and hints of hazelnut, followed by a short, medium roasty-bitter, rather dry and a bit grassy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite okay, easily drinkable, not too much flavour though.
