12 oz can.

Pours jet black, brownish tint around the very edge of the glass where light barely penetrates. Light tan head is fine and dissipate slowly from about an eighth of an inch.

Smells of light roasted coffee malts and pickled olives.

Tastes of caramel and roasted malts, oak wood notes, and mild brine saltiness.

Medium to full body with a light effervescence.

A solid oyster stout, good flavor balance, not too rich. If you don't like oyster stouts, you won't like this, but if you do, this is one of the better ones out there that is readily available in the US.

Pours a pitch black body with a small tan head with decent retention. Aromas are roasty, coffee-like, with some dark chocolate notes as well. These notes carry over to the palate most prominently on the front and middle palate before giving way to a bitter baker's cocoa finish. Good stuff.

Pours a very deep, dark mahogany brown to black body beneath the thick, tan head, which slowly dissolves to leave a dense sticky lacing clinging to the glass.

Generous roasted malt and dry yeast aromas float from the glass with a touch of lactic sweetness.

The flavor also offers roasted malt and more of a bitter chocolate than sweet. However, there is a hint of the sweetness at the finish, which quickly gives way to the roasted/toasted malt and almost biscuit flavors.

Mouthfeel is on the thicker side with a generous roasted palate, medium carbonation and finish, which is actually a touch creamy.

After reading up on the less common English Stout style, I must say this beer is quite on and the generous roasted malt really nails it.
