Curios looking can staring at me from the shelf at Lucia’s Bodega. You had me at DC Brau, and it wasn’t until I got home that I saw the brewed with oysters on the side. Somewhat hazy dark brow with faint ruby at the edges and a huge fluffy frothy tan head that slowly recedes leaving a sticky mess on the sides of my glass. Earthy pine with hints of coffee, caramel and chocolate, with a hint of salty brine. The flavor is rich and malty with big caramel and chocolate notes offset slightly with an earthy pine that is not big enough to cut through the malt. Lingering hop bitterness in the finish is at times a little harsh. Gritty ashy texture in the mouthfeel makes me feel like I’ve inhaled some dust and drank some water to wash it away. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation. No easily identifiable date markings on the can so I can’t tell if this is an older sample or this is supposed to be a malty black ipa. I could drink this, but I would call it a hoppy porter and ignore the grit. My can claims 8.0% abv

Can at the parentals with my dad, courtesy of Lukaduka. Pour is murky brown with a small tan head and decent lacing. Grapefruity, caramelly, lightly roasty, some bread, grassy, and orange aroma. Taste is bready, oxidized, caramel, slightly grassy, cardboard, some herbal notes, roast, and nutty with a lightly bitter finish. Light body with medium carbonation. Not bad, but seems a bit past its prime.

From the 16 oz can. How can one not love both the title and the graphics design on the can? I’l save this one. The pour is deep brown to nearly black with a long lasting tan colored head. The aroma has a nice dark malt and licorice character with a clean, hop note too. Smells quite nice. The body is smooth and a bit better than medium. The taste also has the same dark malt and licorice quality but there is a definite lingering hop bitterness at the end. And earthy hop bitterness and not grassy, floral, or grapefruit like. Just bold.

Draft at Dino’s. Black, brown head. Aroma of pine on a roasty background. Taste is earthy burnt espresso, coffee grounds, bitter pine. Delicious.

16 ounce can thanks to lukaduke. Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a hazy dark brown to black with a velvety head of khaki foam. The aroma is is earthy, roasty, and some lighter brine notes. The taste is fairly bitter and roasty, but there’s still a bit of sweetness lingering in there. Creamy mouthfeel that starts to prickle as it works toward the swallow.

A very good oyster stout. Pours a beautiful thick black with a tan head. Smells of milk and some brine. Taste is very milky and creamy at first, with the oyster saltiness and hops coming in at the finish. Very good. Had on tap at Finback Alehouse in Bar Harbor.

16oz can pours dark brown black with 2 finger tan head. Nose is light toch of fruity malt mixed with some subtle roasty coffee bean and cocoa, soil, light pine. Taste is similar with a finish of ashy roast cocoa beans and nutty coffee, mild piney bitterness, faint hint of salinity.

Draft at Ballston Alexandria. Poured a dark brown color, with a large tan head. Aroma was a bit smoky, lots of roasted malt character. Bitter dark chocolate character, some bitter hop character. Light notes that I can only imagine are the oysters. Not sure I’m really digging this one, it’s not as creamy as I would hope and the Black IPA suffers from earthy, chalky character, with some residual citrus character beneath all the roasted malts. Maybe I’ll try this one again down the road.

Pours black into a Sam glass. Tan head with good retention recedes leaving sheet lacing. Chocolate and brine aromas. Medium bodied with chocolate and espresso upfront turning to a medium length mineral finish.
