Very good - my favourite stout to date - tastes very good with brie cheese trust me.

500 ml bottle. Black to dark brown, cappuccino-coloured head. Looks impressive. Cocoa, smoked malt, dried fruits and nuts. Malty, not bitter, smoky and a bit sweet. Smooth. Flat carbonated, medium bodied. Creamy texture. Not bad.

Hmm, a little disappointing this one. Classic stout appearance in the glass, but only a very mild aroma of note. Quite milky on the palate. Milky chocolate notes as an aftertaste, but not much else. Forgettable, sadly.

Aroma: caramel, sweet malt Taste: sweet malt from the start, caramel somewhere in the middle with notes of roasted malt. Long creamy aftertaste of coffee. Interesting stout

From old tasting notes. Opaque brown black color. Thick, rocky tan head. Soft roasted malt aroma. Smooth, dryish toasted malt flavor lacks complexity and intensity.

From the three Marston’s I have bought this is the one i consider most drinkable.

"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.
