Good fragrance with a moderate flavor. The aftertaste is left for a long while. Maybe a little dry but okay.

Solid stout, but I didn’t detect much oyster in it. Compare to Harpoon’s version, this is tame. Maybe FD has a little mineral roughness to it, but not much. Of course, a true oyster stout is an acquired taste. So they took the easy road.

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.

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
