4.48/5  rDev +14.9%

Got a growler from Buy Rite North Plainfield. Poured into a snifter; since I'm oh so classy.
Drank this last night so it's relatively fresh in my head

A: Black with a thin head and some lacing.

S: Deep roasted dark chocolate and coffee

T: Starts out surprisingly crisp with a slight hop bitterness contrasted by chocolate with a touch of sweetness. The taste then turns (And this part I will remember forever) to a charred wood taste - as if burnt pieces of wood from the fireplace were in this beer - and I absolutely love it. Not overpowering or offensive but unmistakeable. One of a kind.

M: Medium bodied with a dry finish.

O: My first Oyster Stout and it was a memorable one. Try this for a fresh take on stouts.

750ml bottle I purchased some time ago and sort of forgot about. Poured into a standard pint, the brew appears black with a dark brown 2 finger froth that slowly fades leaving a thin silky topping. Spots of stringy lace stick to the glass.

The aroma is like baker's cocoa coupled with raisony alcohol, coffee and more of a milky sweet chocolate note. A hint of minerals is present through the back of the nose mixing with a bit of an earthen aspect. As the brew warms up, a note of soy sauce starts to emerge.

The flavor is roasted with a chocolate combination of the previously mentioned sweet milk chocolate and bakers bitter chocolate character. Middle of the profile has a mineral/earthen aspect that lasts into the aftertaste with a bit of raisony alcohol flavoring. The aftertaste has a bit of soy or saline character.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amoubt of carbonation. It is a fairly decent export stout with the expected mineral/saline character present from the oyster aspect. I think I held on to this brew too long, I am giving it the benefit of the doubt that it was probably a beer best served more fresh than this.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color as well as being thick like oil and having minimal amounts of visible carbonation along with some light hints of cola brown highlights. The beer has a minimal amount of dark tan head that reduces to a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. No amounts of lacing are observed.

S: There are moderate to strong aromas of dark roasted malts, burnt malts, and some lighter hints of anise + oyster brininess.

T: Upfront there are just shy of strong flavors of burnt and very darkly roasted malts. Underneath the roasty flavors of the malts there is a very light hint of anise/licorice and a salty/brininess from the oysters.

M: Full bodied with light amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy.

O: Another really enjoyable beer from the Exit Series, I thought this was a really easy to drink oyster stout. I loved the brininess combined with burnt and heavily roasted malt flavors.

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a thin tan ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of dark malts and chocolate are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional notes of lactose and hints of brine from the oysters.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and quite airy on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very light and easy to drink but has a good amount of flavors.

750ml bottle. No date on this, but know it was released back in 2009 and it might be that old (gift to me). Served in a DFH signature glass.

A: Pours out pretty dark brown color. Not completely black, with some reddish hues on the edges and light getting through when held up to the glass. There wasn't a ton of head, only about a quarter finger of tan that faded into a ring around the edges. Doesn't leave much lacing either, which was surprising.

S: On the nose, it smells really pleasant. Some roasted malts. Some chocolate. Maybe some ocean, when you really dig in there, but that is stretching it. Really it just smells like a nice stout.

T: Took this guy down solo, so got to taste from chilled to warm. The flavors are actually really nice on this guy. Very easy drinking. Lots of roast coffee and dark chocolate character in this one. It's smooth though. The low ABV is nice and makes this one a sessionable stout.

M: It's not a FULL bodied stout. More medium leading to full.

O: Really enjoyed this guy. A- to A beer.
