Lively little number this. Never had oysters before. I think I expected more, was going for 3 in a row but this fell a bit short. Bit like the English seaside. Promises much but often fails to deliver. This is more Brighton than Weymouth though. I put the glass to my ear to check if I could hear the sea but I just got wet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 0.355l. Clear dark brown color with medium frothy brownish head and lively carbonation. Strong aroma of roasted coffee, caramel, yeast and seafood, apparently oysters. Taste starts with roasted coffee, followed by sour yeasty and mildly fruity taste. Mouthfeel is a bit salty, but no other taste of shells or other seafood. Aftertaste still roasty and quite hoppy. Full body, thick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Expected some disgusting combination, but appeared fully acceptable...

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate/cocoa, roast, vanilla, and faint coffee. It pours a dark brown with some orange transparency and a small soapy beige head. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate, caramel, and vanilla. The finish has mild roasted coffee with a hint of smoke. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours deep brown, nearly black. Aroma is mostly smooth caramel and coffee, with a bit of sharp bitterness in the background. Mineral, slightly salty flavor stands out among sweet fruity malt and a balanced dash of hops. Finishes with a bit of tart fruit, a little dry. Smooth mouthfeel, medium to full bodied. Lacks the robustness of many porters, and doesn’t gain much from the oyster gimmick. Not bad, but nothing special.

Bottle to pint. Looks decent; an opaque black with beige lacing. Smells malty. Tastes like it smells with a thin, average mouthfeel. Meh.
