VsXsV (2140) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with medium dirty off-white head. Aroma of coffee, milk chocolate, dark fruit, licorice, bread and roasted malt. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of coffee, chocolate and bread. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Nice but a bit boring.

ReggieDunlap (3005) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours medium brown with a thick tan head..nice retention and lacing. Aroma is roasty with mild nuttiness and cocoa. Flavor is burnt/bitter and fairly roasty...a bit of an earthy/minerally note. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with an earthy/burnt dry finish that i find minerally and not to my liking.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle @ Urørt, Bergen. Pours a pitch black body with a small off-white head. Nose is licorice, leather, mild chocolate and coffee tones with hints of toffee and something slightly salty which could be the *actual* oysters used in the brewing of this beer. Taste is chocolate, licorice, caramel, toffee and hints of that oyster-like soy-ish element evident in the aroma, along with grains and straw. Smooth and surprisingly full body (or maybe not, considering the *actual* oysters in the boil), medium carbonation. Very pleasant again from Flying Dog, and a nice take on the "oyster"-theme. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mikedR (1068) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Pours black with no head. Amazing coffee and chocolate aroma. It is indeed a dry stout, bordering perhaps a wee too much towards bitterness. However, the dryness does permit the nice roastiness and coffee and chocolate notes to come through in the flavor easily. The oysters give it perhaps a bit of kick; I'm not sure if its necessary or makes the beer better, but it does make the brew different. Overall, pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GothGargoyle (1095) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2013
Solid dark brown with a white head. Aroma is worcheshire sauce, rye bread, wet dog. Relatively light bodied, umami on the palate. Taste is pumpernickel, soy sauce. Somewhat disappointing.

This is one of the best stouts I’ve had and not a stout fan. Questioned the oysters but was a good beer with great flavor!

jd10 (68) - Lebanon, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 2, 2013
pours dark brown with a tan head. nose packs a punch of roasted malts, with smoke and maybe sweet vanilla in the background. taste is more roast and malts, along with coffee and earth - also some stong mineral/salty notes that i haven’t typically encountered in a stout. dry, with very mild bitterness and light to medium mouthfeel.

Bottle. Very dark brown. Sweet, salty, minerals. Complex and very impressive, yet highly drinkable.

bubbleflubber (1739) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Pours the deepest prune into the glass, with a fizzy tan head that reduces to nothing, including lace. The nose is of lightly roasted grains and some toasted malt. Flavors are of roasted malt, light smoke, burnt spent grain hulls, toasted bread and (just) an effervescent hint of sea salt. The bitters balance nicely, leaving a dry finish. The body is medium, flowing smoothly down the palate, providing an easy quaff. Very nice offering for a dry stout.
