3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can- Pours almost totally black with red highlights and a nice creamy tan head that reduces to a collar and good lace. Aroma is chocolate malts, salty (is that in my mind knowing there are oysters in here?), oatmeal. Taste is delicious actually, creamy, chocolatey, aftertaste you do get salty, don’t know a whole lot about oysters, but I think I taste them, again in the aftertaste, would love to try this with fried clams or some other seafood dinner.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 Poured from can dark brown with large tan head. Chocolate, roasted malt aroma. Very nice roasted malt flavor, chocolate flavors and caramel and brown sugar. Hop finish. Good stout but Not as much brine flavor as I have had in other oyster stouts. Creamy feel in mouth.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cans from Capone’s and Blue Dog. Pours fairly thick dark brownish black with minimal khaki head. Nose is roasty nutty cacaoey dark chocolatey malt, backup hops, blackberry. This one has a nice depth of aroma. Tastes rich, complex, with flavors of pumpernickly malt, cacao, hops, walnut, blackberry, and some black patent malt in there as well as some mineral flavors. This one is very good, and very unique, and yet another great canned beer.

Dark with a tan head. Aroma is roasted, sweet, chocolate. Medium, smooth body with a finish of light tingly carbonation. Flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, a bit of burnt sugars, light coffee. Finish is lightly bitter from the roasted malts. Solid stout, but less oyster than most oyster stouts I’ve had.
