A - 4.25 - I never really knock a beer for appearance, I guess it's because I'm used to my homebrew, which is pretty hazy. This is a dark brown-black beer with a nice brown head on it that leaves great lacing in my Magic Hat #9 pint glass. :)
S - 4.0 - Coffee, chocolate, vanilla, smokiness.
T - 4.0 - Smoke, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, some oak barrel (?), salty flavors, red wine. It's an interesting mix of flavors that I haven't really had before in a stout.
M - 4.0 - Medium-thick mouthfeel. Alc is covered. Aftertaste is smokey, salty, roasted malts.
O - 4.0 - I like this beer, it's a nice change up from all the coffee stouts/porters, and russian imperial stouts/BA RIS's that are so popular now. They used the oysters in the boil which they said gives the beer a nice dryness.

A- pitch black with a cola rim. Tan head which fades to a ring rather quickly, but leaves excellent lacing.

S- cocoa, coffee, alcohol, smoky.

T- cocoa, acidic coffee. The finish is dry, salty, and smoky.

M- light bodied, active carbonation.

O- strange, briny, smoky, weird.

Picked up a six-pack of this last week in Totowa, not having any of the Exit beers from Flying Fish in quite a while. I was excited for this and as it turned out, this exceeded my expectations. It's hard for a Stout of any type to stand out from the pack but this did the trick as it was smooth, solid, and oh-so-easily drinkable. For once, I don't mind that I have six of these to go through since I don't think it will last in my house for that long!

The pour to this was solid, as it had a dark hue and tan, bubbly head that filled up the remainder of my pint glass before quickly settling down. Not a strong aroma to this but there was certainly some brine and chocolate to be found, along with a hint of raisin. All of those were present in the mouthfeel, along with a saline saltiness and a slightly ashen tone underneath everything. This was so creamy and smooth without being dry, which I rarely find in a Stout. I was almost expecting an Irish Dry Stout here but this didn't have a chewy aspect to this nor did I need water to wash it down. As s found in so many desserts now, this had the best of both the sweet and salty worlds without having one overpower the other. A hint of dark bread gave this a good body and the aftertaste came and went as gently as a wave on the Delaware.

Ditto for the booze. This certainly wasn't a session beer but you'd never know it until you looked at the bottle. No roasted, heavy motor oil to be found here. While this was a Foreign/Export Stout, a beer like made me think that Oyster Stouts should be in a class by themselves. This was thin enough to go down smoothly but solid enough in body to savor and once again, Flying Fish has outdone themselves with this latest entry in the Exit series. Find this, open it, and savor it - it's a lot better (and possibly cheaper) than taking the Turnpike all the way down to its southern terminus. Highly recommended.
