Im quite sure this belongs under sweet stout. Pours an opaque black colour with big brown head that slowly turns into a thick ring around the glass leaving little lace. Light aroma consisting of mild roasted grain, faint coffee and sweetness. Flavours are bready, sweet, roasted malts, mild bitterness, a bit watery, mild coffee notes

La birra Oyster Stout è una birra dal colore marrone scuro, ottenuta con il metodo dell’alta fermentazione. Offre agli intenditori un gusto leggermente amaro, a cui si uniscono delle note piacevolmente fruttate. Durante la degustazione è possibile avvertire un aroma di orzo tostato. La schiuma prodotta è abbondante, dotata di buona compattezza. Tra le peculiarità della ditta produttrice Marston, Thompson & Eversheld c’è l’impiego del sistema tradizionale Burton Union System, che prevede che la birra fermenti in botti che hanno una caratteristica davvero singolare: sono comunicanti fra loro.

lidt flad i det. den har en smag af malten i den ristede ende, men smagen forsvinder hurtigt.

500 mml bottle. Tasted on the 01/07/2017. Dark black colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of liquorice, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee. Taste is roasty and black and intense coffee beans. Next one please!

Bottle, as Pearl Jet Stout. Black pour, small light tan head. Burnt dark malts, burnt grain, coffee tin, some chocolate wrapping. Taste has some bit of chocolate and espresso in the front, not too rough, then it gets quite dry, with deep dark malts, burnt, but not smokey, with a light acidity/astringency to it, but subtle. Low to mild English hop bitterness. Body’s light, somewhat velvety, but it could be smoother. Low carbonation. A nice, traditional rendering of the style.

Dark, rich, smooth slogan has nothing to do with reality. Tastes like dark bread in carbonated water

Mishnok (301) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2017
From 500ml bottle. Pours dark, almost black with a latte coloured head initially. Aroma is of dried fruits and malt. Raisins and malt bread with a bit of a tang, almost a bitter finish. Medium body, but goes a bit flat towards the end. Still, a decent effort.

tgrtnr (181) - Augsburg, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2017
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.

thomat (3856) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2017

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.
