3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a black with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt a little black licorice and some sea salt brine. Flavor is a nice roasted malt with chocolate and coffee notes. A nice roast and salinity is left on the tongue. Not a over the top rich and roasted stout but plenty flavorful with some brine fron the oyster shells giving this beer a little something extra.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Momo’s Pizza - Northeast - on tap. Viscous, dark black, motor oil-like pour - light mocha colored head. Olive oil and topsoil in the aroma, but otherwise pretty neutral. Bittersweet chocolate, some topsoil, a touch of pipe tobacco, a slight whisper of licorice. Slick mouthfeel that thickens as it warms. Pretty decent.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Taps coffee sable with a thick tan head. Aroma offers molasses, roasted malt, quality coffee, and semi-sweet chocolate plus a snip of oyster. Flavor nicely echoes the aroma while emphasizing chocolate and oyster. Viscous mouthfeel features good fizz. What better place to get marooned?

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2016 Can courtesy of joe. Dark black. Thin head. Dark roasted coffee. Slightly salty. Wish they did more stouts. Not really getting the oysters, so it must be working well. Very easy drinking.

Can, 355ml. Opaque dark brown with a foamy brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, molasses, plums, alcohol. Full bodied, fizzy carbonation. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Deep roasted flavors into a stinging bitter finish. Very pleasant toasted aftertaste. Seems watery but really isn’t, its just the oyster

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
It’s safe to say this isn’t a Vegan friendly beer. I’m not sure how the oyster shells are used, and I probably don’t want to know. Good standard Stout flavor, but am I crazy, or is this beer slightly slimy?
