Properly black with a cold fresh sweet coffee nose. Quite dry with a light impression of mocha sweetness. I did get that fresh briny breeze sensation atop all that roast. Near perfect for what it was. Travlr (26406) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 13, 2012
Draft at the source. Very dark brown, tan head, delicate lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, salt. Taste is bitter coffee, bitter dark chicolatr, dry finish. Very nice. jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Fairly dry on the nose, lots of cereal and lots of chocolate. The salt of the brine gives a nice complement to the chocolate malts, almost like a little salted caramel. The finished beer is complex and appeals to the palate. Very smooth, very lush, plenty of heft, nice alcohol. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Taster at Port City. Black pour with a tan head. Light roast nose with light salt. Med body with big roasted malts, light salt, chocolate and coffee. Sweet finish which finishes dry and lightly salty. Dogbrick (14300) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2015
On draught at Alphabet City Beer Co. The beer is a brown-black color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Light-bodied with a slightly briny character and notes of bittersweet chocolate, malt and coffee. The finish is roasty malt and salted chocolate. Pretty good overall.

The taste is roasted malts, chalk, strong mineral notes and a bitter finish. Dry and chewy. Medium bodied with strong carbonation. Very nice beer. mansquito (7127) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria tap ($6): Pours a black with a beige head. Aroma is pretzels, minerals, roasted malts, and chocolate. Taste is pretty much chocolate-covered pretzels dipped in brine. Very good body and very good balance. I really dug this brew. dlovell2 (2379) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2014

On tap at Port City. Served in a taster glass. Probably the best oyster stout I’ve had. Dry and toasty with a mild "sea" character. Touch of milk chocolate.
