KnutAlbert (6753) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2008
Cask at the White Horse Parsons Green. Full flavoured stout, lots of smoke, rather sweet, but the finish is dry. Interesting, but a bit too much burned/smoky malt to give total balance.

sm89walt (2054) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2008
33cl bottle. A pitch black stout with a foamy, medium-sized beige head that dissipates reasonably quickly leaving a thin layer of carbonation. Aromas of roasted malts, plenty of sweet milk chocolate and a certain degree of perfume. The flavours are based around dark chocolates, coffee and a thick toffee maltiness. The finish produces a dry, lasting smokiness as well as some chocolate and more subtle perfuminess in the aftertaste. A dry body with a thickish, soft mouthfeel.

harrisoni (18000) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2008
Cask handpull at The King & Queen, East Malling. Good fullness, richness in the mouth, hinting at the richness of oysters. Sharpness on finish. bit too much burnt malt maybe, but actually a very good half. Maybe even a bit too rich for me. Tasty and well put together. Some blackberry fruit.

Bottle from Uto. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Light roasted malts, cocoa and some coffee in the aroma and taste. The roasted malts are nice, but its lacking in taste elsewhere. Not very good.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JAN 18, 2008
On cask at Market Porter, London. Very plain flavour, then kicks into high-gear with full on oyster taste. Tart. Ends smooth and creamy, reminiscent of vanilla ice cream. Quite enjoyable.
