Yeasty with a little coffee aroma. Black as my heart with a dark tan head. Tastes zingy citrus at first then a nice palate covering coffee cream. Great stout. Not much hint of oysters but then again i can’t remember the last time I had one.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Pours ebony black with medium sized tan head. Nose is dark malt and coffee. Nice and creamy on the palate, with flavors of dark roasted malt, slightly burnt coffee and a hint of hops on the finish. Could not detect any oyster flavors. A good, though, not great, stout.Stands up well to a loaded pastrami and cheese sandwich on pumpernickel with a huge dill pickle.

12oz served in a snifter. A - Pours very dark brown almost black with a thin tan head that forms a seal aroung the edges of the glass. Specks of lacing left around the glass. S - Roasted chocolate malts, anise, molasses, caramel, smoked nuts. T - Roasted/smoked malts, hints of cocoa, some raisin and molasses sweetness, overall very dry though. Suggestions of smoked oysters. Finishes with a clean saltiness and a smoky cacao aftertaste. M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, chunky feel. This was my first oyster stout and it was quite good. The oysters were subtle but really added to a solid English stout. This would pair well with food or by itself. Serving type: bottle 09-25-2012

Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
355ml bottle from drinkstore, enjoyed at home. Pours (with quite a fizz) a very dark brown, bordering on black, with a thick tan foam that quickly dissipates. No lacing. Aroma is a complex blend of herbs, chocolate, molasses and nuts. Taste is equally complex, with a slightly astringent metallic start opening up to release a delicious blend of slight chocolatey sweetness, barley bitterness and a slight herby edge from the oysters. Finish is quite lively for a stout, but nice and dry, leaving a level herby aftertaste. Only my second of the style, but quite delicous, I have to say.
