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.

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.

Pours black with a tan head. Nice malty almost smoky aroma. Great chocolately malt taste that fills your mouth. Great finish! This is a super stout!

12 oz. can from Whole Foods in Fresno, CA. Poured into a tulip. Pours a dark, espresso brown with a thick, dirty head that lasts. Smell is roasted coffee, grains, and a little bit of smoke. Taste is more of the coffee with some sweet malts and a briney finish.
I haven't had any other oyster stouts, but if this is representative of the style then in a huge fan!

Very dark pour with little to no head. Unique to say the least, but not in a bad way. Malty and thick tasting. A hint of salt is notable in the mix. Hands down one of the best canned beers. No real alcohol taste and no after taste. Very drinkable, and very good!

A great beer! It can in a four pack of cans. It poured with a decent head and the aroma was great.

Delicious aromas of cocoa nibs, but still very clean. It’s as dark brown as it can be without being black, with a light brown head. You can get a briny taste from the oyster shells at the beginning, with a very nice, roasted-chocolatey flavor throughout. It’s not over-sweet the way that many chocolate stouts can be, but it has an unquestionably cocoa flavor. The finish gives you more of that briny, saltwater flavor, but in a subtle, delicious way. This is a tremendous stout that’s got a lot of fun stuff going on! Stout fans, enjoy this one!

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.
