12 oz can from Giant Eagle on Rte 8 in Pittsburgh. This was good but I noticed a semi-foul odor in the first sniff. The overall saltiness takes a while to get used to but most will enjoy for what it is.

This is a very unquie Stout can’t say I have ever had one like it. Pour in dark brown in color with a great tan head that is full of very tiny tight bubble head that almost looks like milk shake. Aroma is malty,sweet and has alcohol notes that are like sherry. Full body and bitter but a little to much alcohol on the finsh.

Le nez est rôti, torréfié et légèrement fûmé, une touche de lait de coco se fait sentir aussi. En bouche c’est riche avec un bon côté salin, délicieux.

The body is almost flat, with little head, but very dark brown with rust highlights. The aroma is salt, chocolate and coffee. Those flavors dominate the flavor, too, and it’s just damn good. There is hardly any presence of hops, just a lot of salt, chocolate and coffee. I love this and I hope I can find it again.

Not a bad oyster stout. Nose is sharp and mostly roasted malt with notes of almost sea water. Taste is plenty of roast and some sharp malts. Smooth and drinkable, especially since this isn’t really my style.

12oz can. Pours pitch-black in color, with a moderate head of tan foam.
Aroma is subtle coffee and chocolate notes. Taste is roasty, chocolatey, with a subtle brininess. Very tasty and well balanced. No evidence of oysters at all!

Can from a quad purchased at Aficionado’s. Dark brown in color with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roast and saltwater. Malty and chocolatey flavor with some coffee character and salt before a roasty finish.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells of rich chocolate mousse or pot de creme with a hint of booze that opens up into a raisiny port-like impression as it warms. The flavor doesn’t veer far from the aroma as it begins with the same rich chocolatey quality. It starts sweet, but the mid-palate is smooth and creamy with a drying and very slightly roasted finish. Delicious and dangerously drinkable for its weighty 7.9% ABV. Might be my favorite oyster stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz can from jcos, 3/15/13
Aroma: The nose is a pretty nice mix of the roasted malts and the brine/salt water
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small head that leaves some spotty lace
Flavor: The flavor has lots of roasted malts, a light-mid sweetness, mild bitterness, and a salty finish
Palate: It is medium bodied, feels smooth and a touch ashy, soft carbonation, and a dry, briny finish
I just noticed as I’m rating this that I have moved into the Top 300 raters on the site. Anyway, thanks Kramer! This is some really good stuff. I thought it was pretty easy to drink and I really enjoyed how the oyster shells worked in the one. There’s just the right amount of brine to add depth to a roasted malt fronted beer. Nicely done!
