Delicious brew. Nice dark appearance, toasty brine smelling on the nose, rich mouthfeel with a hint of salt, finishing dry. Taste is salty roasted earthy floral minerally deliciousness.
Would drink again and again

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
can. near black with a large, whipped, stable, tan head. typical roasted notes with a salty vodka-like bite i assume is from the oyster shells. taste, again, has a light bite to it with a milk chocolate roasted character. creamy smooth palate. pretty nice job, sometimes these beers come out weird but this one is very drinkable.

Can. Pours black with tan head. Nose and taste of brine, roasted chocolate malt, flaked oats and dry coffee. Taste is very dry from the oysters. Finishes dry roast and brine. Lighter bodied for the ABV.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Scott on Xmas day. Aroma is weaker stout, but flavor is a shock of good, bitter oyster stout. Great carb on the palate and combination of flavors and carb make this beer very satisfying. Very good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. This is a rich and smooth stout with lots of roast and hop bitterness. I looks great in a class with a nice head and deep black color. The issue here is taste. The oyster element - a faint brinyness only comes in the nose for me and the finish is slightly tinny. Would be a 4+ if they sort that issue out.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma has nice bold roastiness and subtle bitter dark chocolate. Flavor follows suit and adds a hint of smoke that works nicely. Mouthfeel is medium/full and creamy with a roasty/bitter dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured an opaque oily black with a decent foamy dark tan head that was creamy on the top. The head left nice thick lacing as it slowly reduced. The aroma was very mild with a briny chocolate scent. The beer had a good thicker body and a mild dark chocolate flavor. There was a slightly dry taste and some nice dark chocolate bitterness in the middle. The finish became slightly metallic and on the dry side with a bit of a salty brininess. Wish they would have brewed it with the oysters as well as the shells.
