Can from Marcus. Pours black with a fizzy tan head. Aroma of smooth burnt malt. Very smooth. Med body. Flavor is smooth burnt malt with notes of treacle. There’s definitely some hop bitter. Smooth and bitter finish. Good!

Pours a solid black with a tan head and some lacing. It has a great aroma of toasted malt along with small amounts of chocolate and coffee. The flavor is toasted malt up front followed by a smoother middle, and a slightly salty finish and smooth mouthfeel. Some of the best artwork I've seen on a package too!

Impressive. Big thick viscous stout with a salty/briny character from the oysters. Has a lot of chocolate, roast, some anise. Sticky, with a dry finish. Very good.

I've never thought that anything canned or screw capped means it's of lesser quality, and this is a testament to that.. While it is by far not the best stout in the world, though it's definitely not the worst. I have to admit, this beer has a pronounced chalky, inky, saline quality that is no doubt attributed to the oyster shells.. Although that chalky, inky, saline quality is dominated by dark fruit, mild rum raisin and mild, sweetened coffee on the palate.. Medium-medium-plus bodied.. Smooth and creamy.. Not bad for a affordable, big production, widely distributed, canned oyster stout... Not bad at all.

Dark black , no head, medium body, creaminess, chocolate, salt, light oyster brine. The chocolate and malt sweet blends well with the oyster salty brine. Nothing is overpowering. OK was pleasantly surprised.

pours black with a thin off white head that turns into nothing more than a collar. Aroma is pretty standard stout, faint bakers chocolate, pretty tame aroma. Taste is a bit more complex with a sweet salty balance, pretty roasty, hints of bakers chocolate and a nice brine tang to it, some earthy finishing hops. palate is kind of creamy, way better than what i expected.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can pours a dark cola, small tan head, and minimal lacing. Aroma includes hints of bakers chocolate, roasted malt, and espresso bitterness, but all are quite tame. Taste begins with big malty flavor followed by bakers chocolate and enjoyable slight oyster creaminess. Would have enjoyed a thicker mouthfeel, but very drinkable with unique flavors.
