22 oz. bottle shared by jmborggren (April 2012). Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, chocolate, soy, mildly briny character, some earthy bitterness to the finish. This was not bad, but is a style that needs to be done really well to pull off.

Beer thanks to mike, salty and roasty, thick and sweet, syrupy and roasty, a little too thick like tar for me burg326 (5482) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2013
22 ounce bottle, poured a light black color with aromas of anise, light roast, some earth, and a touch of light chalk. Flavors are the same, a little earth and ash, mixed with some grounds, decent beer overall. ddemmingjr (800) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle from 5/11- pours opaque blackish brown, dense khaki head that settles to a fine coat. Anise, molasses, roasted malts, nuts on the nose. Lighter bodied with milk thistle, roasted malts, chocolate malt on the tongue. Mellow oyster stout that's nice if not overbearing

22oz bomber via trade. Poured a medium to slightly thinner density dark black with a smaller foamy beige head. Aroma of older chocolates, stale bread, flat cola, soy and a hint of oxidation. Thinner to possibly medium body, watery mouthfeel, lighter carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor is a step up from the aroma, notes of light roasted malts, some chocolate, soy and cola, hint of root beer, and a touch of oxidation. I liked this one despite the thin body.

Bottle shared much thanks to Dave. Pours out an almost cola brownish color with a small off white head. Aroma is of molasses, light chocolate, dark dried fruits, soy sauce and light cola. Taste is roast, chocolate, molasses, soy sauce, light earthy notes, some sugary syrup. Solid. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 31, 2013
Found my last bottle of this while moving, but now realize I never rated it...so this has quite a bit of age on it, but it held up really really well. Aroma is earthy, with mushroom, coffee and smoke. Taste is very salty, soy sauce, cooked mushrooms. Its a really interesting combination. This beer has a fantastic mouthfeel and a short tan foamy cap that just follows the beer as you drink it. Alphadelic (2237) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Sweet mellow and a little grainy on the nose. A good mix of sweet and savory. 5 on looks for the label. A little chalky mineral. Plovmand (8311) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle provided by Hopscotch. Thanks man! Pours opaque black with a creamy beige head. The aroma is sweet roasted malt, chocolate, creamy, light coffee and light minerals. The flavour is chocolate, light salty, roasted malt, light tar and liquorice. Full flavoured for the abv. Great stuff. Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Poured from a bottle. Notes of chocolate, salt/mineral, fruity, caramel. A tasty beer overall.
