12 ounce bottle. Served in a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass, the beer pours dark brown with about a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, chocolate, and some coffee. The taste is similar to the aroma, but the oyster mineral/brine flavor is noticeable. Itís a sweet smelling brew, but overall the flavors are more bitter. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it has good carbonation, and itís also easy to drink. I think this is a good beer overall, and Iíd try it again in the future.

Pours jet black with no head. Aroma of roast, chocolate some lactose. Taste follows with a slightly salty finish. Smooth yet somewhat complex. Not bad

ContemplateBeer (1585) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Aroma of cocoa, light roast (a bit of coffee), a hint of brine. Appearance of nearly opaque black with light tan head. Flavor pretty much matches the nose; the finish is somewhat salty with no real tangible note of oyster besides; there is a lingering roast dryness here appropriate for the style. Palate was medium, creamy and soft. Uneven, but fine overall.

Bottle. Pours a nice dark brown, opaque, no real head to speak of. I think this might be an old bottle, but it was so unremarkable that all Iíll say is it straight up sucked... and I like Flying Dog, so this wasnít how I hoped to rate this.

scarletfire65 (985) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle at home, jet black pour with minimal head. The aroma is briny with roasted malt, cola, coffee. The flavor follows suit with a fresh marine note. Very dry and well attenuated. Bitter and roasty finish, with a touch of salt.

a mild tasting stout with a mild tasting oyster taste to it...really?? After the pour, the brew went downhill. Ok at best.

vikingguy (840) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Black w/ brown head. Roasted malt and a coffee shop on the nose. Taste - espresso, roasted malts and some bitter chocolate. Maybe a little briny-ness from the oysters but really canít detect anything significant from it. Overall, itís a fine tasting stout.

A black colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma of dark malt, hints of coffee. The taste of dark malt, a little sweet coffee and roasted malt. The aftertaste is bitter with some sweet.
