A salty taste of malts with coffee and brine and not much sweetness. Pretty strong on the hops side too. Not bad.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown with a tanned head that falls down quite fast. Smells of roasted malts, coffee, no oysters, but i guess they never was ment to dominate. Moderate sweet, quite dry mouthfeel, roasty malts, coffee and hints of dark fruits. Medium bitter finish, earthy hops. Quite enjoyable

Really surprised by this, with a name like that you would think it would be gross but i liked it, and you can actually taste a little bit of oyster in it. Nice roasted chocolate, with a bit of sea salt (oysterness). Good stuff
