Gotta love a session ready oyster stout. This one fills the bill and close to 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 mouth feel, good food beer.

O) Good session stout, would never tire of it, would blend well.

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.

I had the nitro version of this stout on draught in a bar. It was served in a tulip glass. It poured a dark mahogany - nearly opaque - with one finger of creamy, mocha-colored head. and lacing that did not dissipate throughout the pour. It smelled of burnt coffee, chocolate, and licorice. The taste largely follows the nose but it finishes with a slight hoppy bitterness. The mouthfeel is rather thin, not unexpected with the moderate ABV of 5.5%, but it is very creamy on nitro. Overall, it is a good representation of its style.
