I was a bit sceptical about this one...
Pours a completely black color with an average slightly off color head.
The aroma is surprisingly gentle, just some roasted malts present.
The taste is very nice - some roasted malts, slight bitterness. Very drinkable, definitely nothing bad about it.

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Dark brown, almost black with a thin tan head.

Smell: Roasted chocolate, malty, coffee.

Tasty: Chocolate, roasted coffee. Don't pick up any oyster flavor.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, well carbonated, little alcohol kick at the end.

Overall: A good stout, better than I expected. I would definitely get again.

This pours a very dark brown/black color with a slight off-white head. The aroma is slightly malty and robust. The taste is light and roust with a fairly thin texture. Overall this is a pretty light in taste and texture stout that drinks very easily.

Poured a blackish body with minimal tan head that dies slow with minor lace. I get a little sweetness in the aroma but even that is more bitter chocolate than anything. Some large chunks of roasted malt and a splash of coffee also hit me in the nose. The beer is medium to heavy bodied, slightly chewey. enjoyable sipper but a mostly dry stout with roasted malts ( and again I get this coffee thing) dominating and just minor bitter chocolate notes mixed in. The finish seems a little grainy so I suppose this is where the oyster kick is which isn't bad as it isn't burdensome and lends itself to the beer. Also seems to have a touch of wood since it goes down smooth. Not a bad stout at all but one that is a little simple for my liking.
