Pours black with a strong aroma of coffee,malt,chocolate. Taste is similar to aroma with a bit of grain and roasted malt and coffee was dominant. It felt just a bit thin but was still a great stout that I've had on several occasions and would try again

Stouts and porters are my favorite style and this one does not disappoint. More of an English style stout than an Irish Dry Stout, there is plenty of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate in this enjoyable brew. Although a substantial head and dark, near black body, the mouthfeel is on the thin side. Nevertheless, it is a smooth sessionable stout.

A very smooth stout. Nose is faint roasted coffee. Taste is well balanced coffee, malt and mild chocolate. Feel is medium with carbonation on the light side.

Gotta love a session ready oyster stout. This one fills the bill but not at the top of the oyster heap.

A) Suitably black-brown body with 1 finger beige head offering good retention and lacing.

S) Sweet, coffee, prune, charred wood, basement, and slightly smoky.

T) Smoky roasted upfront transforming into oysters on bready biscuity, sweet malt, and a finish full of smoke.

F) Not as full bodied as I'd like with low-to-moderate carbonation, and a dry finish. Good food beer.

O) Good session stout, would never tire of it, would blend well, but could maybe give a bigger mouthfeel.

Very dark color with a coffee and chocolate aroma. Taste translates from the nose. A bit more watery than I was expecting with little carbonation. This isn't my style but it's fairly decent.

Black in color. Poured with a moderate dark beige, slightly soapy foam with medium low retention. Lightly roasted malt and rich chocolate aromas. No hop aromas. Medium bodied with an incredible creamy smooth feel and medium light carbonation. Light warmth from the middle to the finish. Roasted malt up front followed by dark chocolate. Medium hop bitterness through the middle followed by dark roasted malt to the end. Finished dryly with light roasted malt notes. Well balanced with light roasted malts being offset by medium bitterness. Pleasant, subtle, simple, delicate aroma and flavor characteristics. Easy drinking.

Smelled chocolate notes upon opening the beer. The chocolate dominates the beer but as the beer warms up the coffee notes really shine through. Very smooth for a stout and probably one of the smoothest stouts that I have ever had.
