Pours brown and settles black with an average sized tan head. There is an aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. It smells big and as if it is a bit chalky. There is a sweet roasted flavor that is nicely filling. Great sweetness and quite smooth. Thanks to DocLock for this one.

Black, but light comes in easily at the edges. The light tan head is slightly sandy and fades to a thin, lacey film. The aroma is charcoal and walnuts. The acidic roastiness comes across a little harsh. The flavor explodes with the acidic burnt malt almost covering up a bit of dark chocolate. A not-quite nuttiness follows up with a light, lingering bitterness finishing it off. The body is a bit too thin. Beef up the body of this stout and youd have an excellent stout.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2004 I cant get enough of this beer. Dark in the glass with a dark tan head. Smells of chocolatey goodness with a hint of nuttiness. Couldnt taste the oysters but I knew I was in love. Got lucky and caught it at in the brewerys tasting room fresh from the line. A great beer and a personal favorite.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 22, 2004
Dark brown mahogany with a ridiculous, cardboard brown head - huge and long lasting. Smells of chocolate and a peppery, dusty scent. Tastes of chocolate and very bitter hops, again, smokey and dusty. Not bad, not great. Give it a shot if you see it. Purchased at Chevy Chase wine and spirits in Washington, DC.

Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Pours a dark brown with big popping bubbles. Aroma was sweet coffee and bitter chocolate. I didnt taste any oysters in this but it was smooth with a clean dry finish.

A very good sweet stout - great color and aroma. I love almost all of Yards brews - plus, they're local.

Very nice roasty stout. Dark in color with a nice head. Really enjoyable beer. Its a little sweet. More like a porter than a stout. Good.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2004
Tap at Andy's. Pours dark brown and cloudy. Roasty aroma and flavor, more to the porter side than stout. A little sweet and the roasted bitterness is minimal. Easy drinking.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2004
Pours a deep mahogany (appears black in the absence of light) with a medium tan, sufficiently bubbly head. Not much to the aroma; light dustings of roasted nuts and malts. Hints of chocolate and coffee in the flavor. It was very smooth and drinkable, which is a plus. However, overall it was pretty bland and uninteresting.

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - APR 20, 2004
When the bottle was opened, the foam began. It poured out and didn't stop going for at least two minutes. Color is deep brown with some ruby highlights, and the head is surprisingly sparse, given that the beer basically jumped out of the bottle . . . Aroma has some coffee and mild caramel/toffee tones. Flavor is fairly gentle, with some strong coffee and mild chocolate in there. The flavor is fairly nice, but there's an aftertaste that sneaks up on you after the swallow. The aftertaste is metallic and chemical-y. It detracts from, but does not destroy, the enjoyment of the beer.
