(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.

Appearance:
Pours into an almost black, with a creamy cappuccino white-brown head.

Nose:
Malty - some soapy notes, but not unpleasant.

Taste:
Very light with some bitter notes [not very hoppy]. Bitterness prevails for quite some time. Not a taste bomb...

Overall:
Not a really bad beer - but overall it has a lack of character and taste. Not sure, what they mean, that it is good with oysters... maybe because it is so light in taste?

No offensive taste - well maybe because it doesn't have a lot of taste...

From the 500 ml. bottle. Sampled on January 16, 2012. It pours close to black with ruby red hues and a long-lasting tan head. The aroma does little to make me think it is a stout. There are dark grainy malts, some vague fruit, and maybe a slight hop crispness but it is all very subtle. The body is thin. As for the taste, I get little that makes me think of a stout. It is more like a Heineken Dark with an off-dry finish. This goes down quickly though.

A: Pours a black color with a nice tan head that fades to bits of lacing.

S: Aroma of roasted malts, bit of chocolate with a hint of spice.

T: Taste of roasted malt, bit of chocolate with a mild sweetness. Nice bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Moderate body, smooth creamy and rich in texture. decent balance.

O: Enjoyable stout that goes down easy.

3.03/5  rDev -7.9%

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.
