look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a chalice. Had been in my cellar for 4 to 5 months. Forgot to write down the bottled on date.

I like this beer. Well balanced between coffee/bitterness/sweetness/mineraliness.

A - Pours a clear reddish black. Opaque in the glass. With a two-finger tan rocky head, which quickly dissipates (-). There was also a reddish brown “goober” which poured from the can and floated in the beer (-). I spooned it out and drank the beer anyway.

S – Sweetness, roasted malt, faint dark chocolate, some citrusy aroma.

T – Coffee, roasted coffee bitterness, sweetness.

MF – Thinner than expected. Medium bodied. Good carbonation leads to some fizziness on the palate. Slight mineraliness. Bitter in the middle with a medium dry finish.

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

Poured from a 12oz. can, canned on 11/19/12.

Appearance: Nearly pitch black body, tan head, a bit frothy.

Smell: Roasted malt, bit salty, minerals, bit fishy? Wisps of dark chocolate as well.

Taste: Cocoa, charcoal, strong mineral overtone (not TOO strong), bitter-sweet chocolate chunks, salt, charred smoky wood.

Mouthfeel: Real smooth at first, low carbonation belies the bitterness that follows.

Overall: A nice twist on a traditional stout. Very much enjoyed it.

12 oz. can. Canned on 11/19/12.

Fairly dark oily brown-black body. Pinkie width of dirty khaki head. Not much lacing. Sweet dark fruits, light roasted malts, hints of cherry, vanilla, and ocean air.

Light roastiness up front. Toffee and milk chocolate mid-palate with hints of salt and sea breeze. Light roasted malt throughout. Moderate dark chocolate bitterness. Lingering chocolate sweetness and hints of brine. Medium-full body with a mostly creamy feel. Not bad.

12oz. can poured into a Duvel tulip.

Appearance: Dark brown with a nice foamy 1/2" cap.

Smell: Roasted malt and some mocha.

Taste: A solid stout, rich acrid roasted malt with contains both coffee and chocolate flavors. I am getting a slightly salty flavor on the finish, I guess it might be psychosomatic but I definitely believe it's there, just a hint of salt.

Mouthfeel: Feels a little thin on the body;otherwise, it's smooth and drinkable.

Overall: A nice English Stout, good beer, nothing extraordinary, would pair well with seafood I'm sure.

A: Very close to black with a moderate sized light brown fine textured head. Lace is spotty and on the move.

S: Sweet, clean, caramel, cocoa, and yes, oceany. Not sure what I would call it if I didn't know about the oysters. Very refreshing aroma for a stout. Soft around the edges... Milk-like.

T: Taste has a nice pile of creamy caramel, lactose sweetness, and light bitterness. Caramel, cocoa, some coffee, toffee, pine. Doesn't taste salty but there something extra going on that works rather well with this beer....perhaps the oysters again. Milk stout meets salt water toffee.

M: Velvety smooth, soft, nice very fine carbonation levels, and well coating. Leaves a tingly bitterness behind combined possibly with alcohol warming.

O: This is a pretty great stout. I like what they have going on in this.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a black but plenty of ruby notes around the edges. Nice two finger light chocolate head that laces fairly well.

Aroma is chocolate notes, smoked woody hints with dark fruits and hints of sea air.

Taste is nice smokey chocolate malts, almost like liquid smoke added almost tastes like it was aged on wood. Nice dry flavors maybe the smoke peat notes is making it woody. finish is dry with good fruity notes and briny oyster hints.

Mouthfeel is only about medium but smooth until the finish and the carbonation picks up to be peppy.

Overall I am enjoying this stout maybe just in the mood for one but its very flavorable with out being overly heavy. I nice July treat.

A: Pours a dark black with at least a finger of tan head. Retention is good. Chunky lacing present on the glass.

S: Chocolate and malt aroma.

T: More chocolate present from front to back. Slight salty flavor that enhances the chocolate sweetness - the only thing present on the oysters. Sweet finish.

M: Creamy, good carbonation pop on the tongue but on the heavier side.

O: Great brew and really enjoyed.
