look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours pitch black with an off white head.

The smell is roasted malts, typical stout.

Taste is roast malts, dark chocolate,bitter, the oyster is in the finish quite subtle.

The mouthfeel is light with low carbonation and a dry finish.

Very easy to drink and tastes good. The oyster is very subtle.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12 ounce bottle -> New Belgium glass

This beer pours up a beautiful deep black with a one finger tan colored head dissipating to a thin retention ring and bits of lacing. The smell is coffee, and chocolate. Taste basically follows the nose. It is malt forward with toffee, cola, coffee, chocolate, and caramel notes. Mouthfeel is full and satisfying with just a hint of oyster aftertaste. This one surprised me. It was much better than I expected.
