3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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!

Very normal. Am I normal? Was that Neds? I think it was. Saw them a couple of years back playing God Fodder from start to finish. Bought my mate who lives in Oz and loves them a t-shirt, it’s still sitting in my t-shirt drawer never worn. God I’m boring myself.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle poured into a snifter glass. Pours a dark black with a small light tan head that fades quickly leaving a bit of lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and roasted malts. Taste is a combination of dark and milk chocolates up front with slight smoky malt, coffee, and dark fruit in the background. There is something different in the taste that I assume is the oysters, although having never actually eaten oysters I can’t say for sure. It’s not overwhelming though. Definitely a salty aftertaste and a bit of burn going down. If the ABV wasn’t on the bottle, I would swear this had a much higher alcohol content. Not an incredibly heavy body, but still thick and definitely creamy. Great active carbonation too, but not overly active to where it stings. Great beer! I could see where this would go great with any kind of chocolate dessert.
