It pours black-brown, with 1/2 finger of fine, light brown head with some lacing. The aroma is of warm bread crust, warming alcohol, and a hint of fresh sea spray.
The rich taste is mostly toasted malt, with a hint of coffee and bitter cocoa. The body is full and creamy, with moderate carbonation and a dry finish.
I enjoyed this beer a lot — next time, I’ll have to try some with fresh oysters.
