A: Pours a pitch black color with 2+ fingers of head that slowly fades down to a bubbly cap

S: Lots of bitter roastiness up front, along with some toasted malt, toffee, and dark chocolate. Some anise in the back

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with lots of roasted and toasted maltiness and goes into some dark chocolate, anise, and caramel/toffee notes. Moderately sweet, but the bitterness of the roast balances nicely. Finishes with a light bitterness and lingering anise

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Just enough carbonation to moderate the thickness

O: A solid oyster stout that is nice and roasty with a good depth of underlying dark chocolate and anise flavors going on. Definitely doesn't feel like 6%, either, which makes it quite dangerous to drink. Definitely worth checking out if you see it on tap or hanging around in cans

16 oz can poured into wine glass no canned on date

A: nice black body with a chunky fat head that is slightly off white but disappears rather quickly

S: nice roasted malts smell, some licorice, bakers chocolate and light bits of stale coffee

T: nice lighter on the tongue rich burnt malts good bit of that bakers chocolate and a little bit of a saltiness on the finish

M: medium to leaning toward full beer isn't thick or cloying it actually is a pretty clean beer which is odd for a stout

O: Super easy drinking beer well put together stout and on the lighter side as well. I'd pick this up again.

Pint on tap at Frontier in Brunswick, ME. Pours a nice opaque dark syrup color almost black, substantial tan khaki foam that lingers. Smell is at first syrupy, with a coffee and caramel taking over and a hint of the brine from the oysters is present as well. The taste is bread, malty, and rather sweet, sweeter than expected actually, here too you can taste the slight brine, it is really nice. Mouth feel is typical of a stout, a little more thick than some of the watery ones ive had in ME though. Overall a great beer, it actually made me visit the brewery in Belfast a few weeks later. Would recommend both the brew and the brewery to anyone. Cheers!
