It pours black with a brown head and produces plenty of lacing. There are plenty of coffee aromas and some roast with a hint of dark fruit. It has a very creamy texture to it and a moderately bitter finish. Cybercat (5961) - Georgia, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Taps opaque coffee sable with a nice light tan head. Aroma presents smoky roast malt, quality coffee and licorice tones. Flavor delivers all at the aroma promises and adds a hint of oyster. Yes, oyster indeed. Mouthfeel features body that seems thin for a stout, and some decent fizz. Get moony and stoned. woodychevy (874) - - DEC 22, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2015 Really drinkable. Love the flavor with 4.5%. Dry, but not boring. Oyster notes are subtle. Roasted malts and chocolate dominate. Not overly complex but rated so highly for pure drinkability. Sea salt comes through- could say briny. Really smooth. I would expect their flagship to be great, and it is.
12/23 Had this on cask with Hibiscus. Excellent. Wish their glassware were cleaner. Really pretty pink hue to the tan head. Floral notes there, but subtle. All the great notes of the flagship with added smoothness and interest. Points for originality. Love this place! Westchesterco (2078) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2015
On tap at the lobster trap in Asheville NC. It is a dark brown beer with an ecru head. The aroma is coffee and the taste is a coffee with ac hickory aftertaste Iphonephan (7074) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2015

Tap @ OysterHouse. Very dark with lush mocha head (nitro). Smells like a frappucino- coffee plus sweet and maybe some chocolate. Flavor is roasty but not too sweet. Round & smooth. Travlr (25521) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2014

On tap at the pub, spring break 2014. Light roasty aroma. Smooth and light flavor. A little thin unfortunately but might appeal to the masses. b3shine (9019) - Indiana, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Cask to taster at OysterHouse. This batch is 4.8%. Looks good; a fairly opaque dark cola with light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and light roast. Tastes like it smells with a bit of a mineral taste and a fairly dry mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
