3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle, 5/21/14
Aroma: The nose is roasted malts, coffee/chocolate, and some salt/brine
Appearance: Pours a chestnut-brown color with a light beige head and light lace
Flavor: Taste hits the same lines, with a roasted and malty flavor to go along with a little brininess
Palate: The body is lighter for the style, with a somewhat creamy and easy drinking feel
This is a nice example of the style. You get some brine/saltiness from the oysters, and the overall beer is easy drinking and works nicely. What they did here makes sense to me.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ 3 Wise Monkeys Bar(Hanuman), Todmorden. Black with a full roasted malt aroma but slightly more dour in its taste, although the roasted malts are still very apparent.

Dark brown pour long lasting tan head. Aroma of smoke roasts hay and cream. Tastes like fresh oysters choco char. Dry palate. Very good oyster stout; would get again.

2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer sits just fine. Oysters don’t seem to be apparent in the taste. Dark chocolate, coffee aspects with a fairly bitter finish. Medium bodied beer with an everlasting thin head as you drink it. I like it fine as a stout (but can stand just one every now and then). Aroma does not match the better taste.

Nem rég ismerkedtem meg a különleges sörök világával, de minimum egy indokot tudok mondani, miért is volt jó ez: Flying Dog Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout. De van még pár indok ezen kívül :)

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: dark brown with a small light brown head. Choco malt aroma with super malty flavors. Don’t taste any oysters. Thin body. Not bad

I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark cola color with tan head. Taste coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. I didn't like this. I wouldn't drink it again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is only my second oyster stout actually brewed with oysters! It poured a dark mahogany body, clear around the edges, with a light brown head. Nice lacework. It has an aroma of lightly roasted dark malt, black licorice, and Rappahannock River oysters. (Not really, on that last point. All river oysters smell much the same to me.) The flavor is roasty and dry, has some anise, and is a bit salty... presumably from the oysters. It’s not a bad drink, but outside of its having oysters in it, doesn’t seem very special to me.

Bottle. This was my first oyster stout, as they seem pretty rare, and I have never really seen one before. It was quite interesting. You get the coffee and chocolate taste like a normal stout and then you get left with a briney, salty taste on your tongue. Not my favourite, but curious, and worth a try.
