Pours black with smal and quickly receding head. Aroma of roadty smokey chocolate coffee malt. Light flavor with hint of oyster finish. Was not expecting to get that flavor or--if I did--to like it. But it is awesome. Very interesting dry-ish finish. A bit effervescent for a stout but really fits with the flavor and closer to a porter mouthfeeland bite. Balanced flavor on the roast and oyster. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerathon (952) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Black in color with thin head. I typically like my stouts with a thick creamy head, but this one definitely fell short on that. Taste, I get bitter coffee notes, then strange astringent aftertaste on the tongue. This was a fun and unique brew, but not something I’ll actively seek.

Aromatically I did not get the full effect of the oysters. The flavor is nice as it has a nice licorice smoked flavor with a nice balance of the dry hops and the dark malt. The beer had little lacing and a minimal body, so I would not give the appearance higher than a 3 rating.

MikeBFriesen (8) - CANADA - NOV 11, 2012 does not count
Dark brown on the side, but almost black once fully poured. Nice head with a bit of lace on the sides of glass. Aroma: roast barley, caramel. Taste: burnt coffee (roast barley) caramel followed by a bit of minerals coming through. Body is mostly full. Slightly sweet. Over all, very good. The light sweetness and malt and barley is balanced very well, with with the final mineral aftertaste. I will buy again.

pivnizub (8580) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle: Deep amber coloured with stable tanned foamy layer, dry toasty nose, molasses detectable; moderate dryish bitter flavour with a light acidity; dry roasty and chocolatey finish, accompanied by a malty bitterness. Good…

Brewbie (451) - New York, USA - NOV 10, 2012
12oz bottle. Well, I like oysters and I like stout, so how can this go wrong? Very dark, hint of ruby color. small tan head that dissipates to the sides. Very nice cocoa and roast aroma. Nice tasting, smooth, little bit of carbination bite. Bit of cocoa in the finish.

erickok (3171) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 9, 2012
Dark bown body and bubbly creamy tan head. A 5.5% stout.. can’t be very rich, right? Well the aroma is rich enough with cacao, tea, seaweed, herbal candy and some roast. And the taste is actually quite rich and special. An interesting dry mouth feel, but it’s not really my kind of thing. So I was wrong in my original assumption, but still not too crazy about it. (33cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

i had another oyster stout years ago and loved it, which is odd since i dont like oysters, so had to try another. and with flying dog, you know you cant go wrong. this one is fantastic-rich, malty, cocoa and toffee notes, no oyster-ness that i can tell. really good.

kiwianer (3315) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 8, 2012
The head is creamy and brown, the body black. It smells roasty, nuts, full bodied, maltaromatic, chocolate-coffee. The taste is full bodied, aromatic-creamy, roasty, coffee-aromatic-sweet, sweet-roasty. Very tasty, very good!

portableparty (1908) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours deep brown with a soapy khaki head that dissipates to a wispy film and collar. Aroma has light chocolate malt and toasted nut and fruitiness. Taste has toasted malt and dry bakers chocolate with some nuts and fruit. Palate is medium/full with a dry coating finish. This is solid!
