355ml bottle from The Beer Cellar. Pours as black as a moonless night. Soft tan head with bitter sweet vanilla, liquorice and chocolate aromas. Thin bodied with good flavour and long strong finish.

ciaranc (875) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 25, 2013
Brown pour, not much head to speak of. Roasted malt, coffee and salty oysters in the aroma. Big flavour, coffee and a saturation of heavy roast malt. Quite light bodied and quaffable. Finish is more coffee, a whack of hops, some smokiness. Nice.

Slipstream (2024) - USA - APR 24, 2013
Black pour with a chalk-colored lid. Malty, coffee aroma plus some sweet aroma hops and a touch of yeast. I liked the flavor on draft (at Rosamund) more than from a bottle. A toasty, light stout with an undercurrent of brine and shellfish. Let’s hear it for seafood beers! Why stop with oysters?

Bottle as shown. Pours a dark brown with medium creamy beie head. The aroma is a bready malt and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with sweet roasted malt and chocolate with lingering dry finish. A good dry stout.

Good fragrance with a moderate flavor. The aftertaste is left for a long while. Maybe a little dry but okay.

McGarnigle (555) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 22, 2013
Solid stout, but I didn’t detect much oyster in it. Compare to Harpoon’s version, this is tame. Maybe FD has a little mineral roughness to it, but not much. Of course, a true oyster stout is an acquired taste. So they took the easy road.

Iphonephan (3268) - McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2013
From a 12 oz bottle shared in Avon NC. Pours a cloudy dark cola with an off white head. Toasted biscuit aroma. Flavors roasted malt, saltines and just a hint of oyster. Nice balance. Mellow aftertaste.
