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.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2014 Thought I could taste the oysters as a certain saltiness but that may just be the power of suggestion. Decent stout.

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 (633) - 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.

Hmm, a fairly uninteresting stout. It is a little dry but I’m not a fan of the pour. Looks slightly thin w/out a head or lacing. A little chocolate flavor but otherwise pretty bland. Ok at best.

BillWyce (823) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2013
From notes: Poured opaque black with a 1-finger light tan head. Aroma was roasty, with some coffee notes. Body is medium-to-full with a long, slightly creamy finish. Roasty coffee flavor, with a mild creamy note beneath.
