COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
There are two schools of thought when it comes to oyster stouts - some believe that they should be served cold and go well with a plate of oysters. We believe that a proper oyster stout should be made with oysters. We’ve used six different grains, including oats, wheat and roasted barley, and Fuggles hops for that traditional stout character. We’ve then added whole oysters, shells and all, during the last fifteen minutes of the boil. The result is a smooth chocolatey stout that leaves you wanting more.

Mild chocolatey aroma. Sweet and fresh. Gorgeous cream colored frothy head. Bitter tasting with a fresh and slightly peppery aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mr_Pink_152 (944) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Pint bottle from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham. I really like this beer!! Pretty much black with deep tan head, and good lacing. Aroma has dark rich malt, but also a decent hopiness. The taste also has the roasted malts you’d expect but with a real depth that i guess comes from the oysters.

leebotton (226) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Grainy dark chocolate aroma. Deep dark brown with a tan head. Oily texture but not massively viscous. The slight burnt flavours come through with chocolate and a bit of, I dunno, wood.

Davros (1999) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2014
Pours black with a large lasting light tan head. Nose shows roasted barley, cocoa, soft roasted coffee, a little bready malt. Appetizing. Lovely roasted barley as a flavour, with toasty notes too. Sweetens up a little later on but theres also a faint acidity, presumably from the roasted grains Carbonation is too aggressive.

Idiosynkrasie (4025) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2014
500ml bottle. Jet black colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, beige to tan head. Roasty dark malty aroma, notes of cocoa, coffee and grainy coffee surrogate, a salty touch, hints of liquorice. Taste is dry and minimally tart, roasty dark malty, slightly salty, subtle chocolately sweetness, some cocoa and coffee; soft palate, smooth carbonation. Wonderful!
