S: Mild malty old bay aroma with some chocolate notes

T: There is a porter background with chocolate background followed by a seafood flavoring.

M: Medium body and minimal carbonation.

O: Interesting brew – nothing I would have ever thought of - worthy of a try.

A robust porter brewed with live lobsters in the boil...can't pass up a taste of this one.

A: dark brown, with a thin tan head.

S: chocolate, roasty smell.

T: a little sweet, a little salty, a good bit of chocolate. better than I was thinking after reading the description.

M: smooth, medium body, low carbonation

O: not much lobster flavor, but a pretty good brew overall. I think the lobsters they boiled in probably tasted more like beer than the beer tastes like lobster.

Definitely worth a taste.

I had this brewpub exclusive at the pub in Rehoboth served chilled in a snifter.

The color is dark brown almost black with opaque clarity and thin tan ring for head. The smell is very good with dark cocoa and a fresh basil aroma with mild malt sweet scent and light roast. The feel is excellent with semi-dry malt body and creamy yet slightly oily feel from the herbal texture of basil mixed with a yeast accent and mild bitterness with moderate carbonation and low alcohol influence with dry finish.

The taste is unique the most basil flavor I think I have ever had in a chocolate beer - but plenty of dark cocoa in the taste with some dry maltiness and low bitterness and mild malt sweetness backing up the spice and herbal elements. There is some mild crustacean in the ale which is generally perceived as mineral with basil lasting into the pungent and roasted finish. Overall this is a great porter with the adjunct of chocolate and basil providing a complimentary taste that works well with lobster bringing it all together. I was not sure what to expect but this went well with white chocolate cherry bread pudding for dessert.

On tap at Rehoboth Beach pub, this beer is mostly chocolate and no lobster. Beer is black and brown with a nice brown head of small bubbles, nice looking beer.

Aroma is chocolate and mild roast, a little sweetness.

Beer is medium in body and very bitter on the end with the chocolate. Lobster? nope. Salty? nope. Just a nice porter, probably a waste of lboster although I imagine the lobster probably ended up tasting like the beer...not the other way around.

Thanks to Bill for sharing this DFH rarity. This is wicked hodd ta get.

The beer is black with an inch of head. The aroma is roast and chocolate, relatively mild. Additional scents of salt and light spice. This must be the lobster. The flavor is nice. Sea salt and chocolate with a dry finish. Some Irish stout character. Interesting beer.
