EFC1878's rating

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, - JAN 17, 2012
Bottle from Tesco. Very dark brown, almost black with an attractive beige head; decent lacing. Roasted and chocolate malt aroma. Sweetish taste with bitter roast malt finish. Too thin bodied for my taste. Marstons brew worse beers, though, to be fair.

Luneylane (226) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - OCT 13, 2017
A bottle labelled as 'Pearl Jet' from Jason's near NCCU, drunk at home. Aroma: freshly shaved wood. Appearance: hazy cola, 1-2 mm. tan lacing. Palate: light-bodied, rather thin and dry with average carbonation, yet pleasingly complex finish. Taste: well-balanced medium sweet and bitter, liquorice, wood. Tasty, though I prefer something with a bigger kick.

I picked up this bottle at the Alcampo in Sevilla. I tried it yesterday at home in the Cerro del Aguila. In my point of view, I was a bit disappointed about this beer. I waa expecting something with more personnality. First of all, the body is as usual splendid with a deep dark body, white and brown foam, the carbonation is a bit lower than usual. The taste is really bland and watery, few roasted malt, few aromas in general and dry, oyster is not present, mineral, so-so.

civilhorker (16) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 5, 2017
30.9.2017 (pilsner glass, 500ml bottle) // Smell: Quite weak, Winey and malty. // Mouthfeel: Watery, medium-soft carbonation, light and thin. // Head: Compact, brownish and smooth. // Taste: Very watery, bready -- light maltiness, herbal -- scarce hoppy bitter aftertaste. // Look: Static, homogenous black. // Overall: A rather boring beer. Very watery and has a shallow profile. //

Kolsvart med ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar kaffe, choklad och rostat korn. Fyllig men l?ttdrucken

LoZioSpino (36) - Roma, ITALY - JUL 17, 2017
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.

nybol (2311) - DENMARK - JUL 13, 2017
lidt flad i det. den har en smag af malten i den ristede ende, men smagen forsvinder hurtigt.

Taboada (1423) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUL 13, 2017
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!

dcmchew (104) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - JUL 6, 2017
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.
