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.

mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2004
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.

Let me begin by saying that this beer was carbonated. Really carbonated. Sure it started coming out of the bottle when I opened it, but it kept coming out. I held the bottle over the glass for at least 2 minutes while it foamed over the side of the bottle into the glass. Once I was finally able to pour, I found a nice black body with just a touch of red. Aroma is bittersweet chocolate, some coffee. Taste is chocolate complemented by coffee, finishing roasty mocha. Medium body. A simple beer, but a tasty one for certain.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2004
Pours almost black with a thin biege head. Aroma is odd. It's a little like latex paint. Otherwise there's roasted coffee and chocolate on the nose. Medium bodied mouthfeel. A little sweet and bitter and mildy roasted. Still has a hint of latex paint on the tongue. I don't know about this one. It wasn't bad, but the latex paint.

tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Deep dark black body, huge rocky tan head that lasts and lasts. Lite bitter coffee/ roasted malt nose. Aroma is somewhat blocked by the head. Bitter sweet dark chocolate/coffee flavors are a bit lite. A hair thin on the body, but drinkable and enjoyable.

This is a good stout. The oysters don't seem to do anything for my wife's libido, but I can definitely taste the qualities that they impart to the beer. Slight sediment is present at the end of the pint. The beer is full-bodied, malty, and has a nice hop presence. I tasted roasty, slight smokey, and slight mineral flavors. The finish is smooth and slightly sweet. A very interesting beer.
