3.03/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Dark rich looking stout, with a fairly dark head that soon fades.

S: Very little aroma, but if you really strain you get some roast malts.

T: Roast malts, a little chocolate, slight malt sweetness and a very light hop bitterness.

M: Pretty smooth with a little bight from the carbonation, no oil or lasting hop notes, perhaps a slight maltiness, really not at all creamy.

O: Really rather disappointing. Considering this is a highly regarded beer, not least of all being a 'Brewing Industry International Gold Medal Winner'. Having said that, this is very drinkable, and could make an easy drinking session beer. Just not that tasty, even a little watery.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

(Served in a dimple mug)
A- This beer pours a jet black body with a bubbly dark tan thin head that fades away and a racing carbonation that shows up at the surface.

S- The light black coffee roasted malt aroma has a hint of cola in the finish.

T- The mellow rich black malt has a dry roasted black grain note in the finish with a berry ester note and some roasted notes lingering after the finish. There is a watery taste that grows with a tangy taste in the finish and a phenolic band-aid hint grows in there aswell.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz that covers a lot of the flavor in the finish.

O- The flavor scrubbing fizz and the off flavors are the only dimensions to the malt flavor and they are a bit odd. I don’t think the off flavors are related to the oysters but they just don’t compliment any of the malt flavors.
