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.

Looks better than it tastes. Not a big fan of oysters to start with, this beer does not have the richness and depth I was hoping for.

I had oysters once in my life, years ago, and I’d completely forgotten what they tasted like. The smell of this stuff is so strong I remembered just pouring it into a glass. The taste here, thankfully, is mostly stout, with the oyster adding a strong but interesting saltiness. The finish is very dry. I had a hard time drinking a whole glass of this but it was a worthwhile experience.

JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2013
Small tan-brown head over very deep brown, opaque beer. Inviting coffee nose, dessert coffee, café crème, moccha. Coffee, roasted coffeebeans, bit ashy, very dry. Finish seems to sport alcohol freely (at 5.5% ABV??), and also chili. There is something mineral, but I couldn’t link it to oyster nor mother-of-pearl. Spritzy feel, enhanced by the strange chili experience. Slick, only medium bodied. Nice. Says it all.

Fantastic dry finish ... Light coffee aroma and taste at the end ... Deep black color ... Light head the disappears almost immediately ... Medium carbonation, again .. The dry finish is more evident as you drink more of it ... Enjoyable and a must have with the actual oysters ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Darwenus (549) - Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2013
Dark chocolate body with orangish highlights, there’s very little head or lace, just a smooth, dark surface. The aroma has a muted, kind of synthetic quality that I don’t enjoy. There’s a little bit of a chocolate quality to the smell, but it seems artificial. The flavor is a little tangy during the swallow, but it all remains fairly muted. Muted malt, dull, indistinct background character. Meh.
