12oz bottle from Kalamazoo megabev. Pitch Black pour with a few inches of offwhite head that settled to be fairly dense. Smells a lot like root beer - vanilla and a bit of licorice, sweet aquatic scents are evident but just slightly. Lots of carbonation. Sweet and savory Carmel taste, toasty and good. Finish is a bit salty and predominantly dry. This is a good savory solid stout with not too heavy of a body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355 mL bottle into a long glass at the York Tap. Black with plentiful light brown foamy head. Chocolate roast, dry, bitter, plenty of body and strangely refreshing. Has some candy sugar to it as well. Sweet aroma with some roast to it. Fair, as the novelty wears off after a few sips.

Jow (2749) - New York, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Stagshead tasting. Pours dark brown with very thin dissipating head. Nose of cocoa and the sea. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, oyster brine, vanilla, earth, and toast. Easy drinking and creamy.

Bottle from Post Office Vaults; Pours dark black, roast malt aroma with some smokiness, taste of dired fruit, malts and a hint of expresso. Really liked this will have again.

Dry coffee aroma on the pour as the finger or so of foam drains down. Some toasted wheat bread in the nose as well. It hints at chocolate but doesn’t really follow through as much as I was hoping. The relatively thin body drinks easily. Nice carbonation. Sweet. Nice backbone of dark malts that skirts the typical acrid notes rather well. The smoke comes through nicely and is well-rounded by the lactic sweetness and the muted coffee and dark chocolate. In the aftertaste, some weak and entirely unoffensive iodine-like notes that remind me of raw PEI oysters. Not bad, overall.

BMMillsy (1756) - Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2012
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 (1592) - 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.

ARMed (622) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2012
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.
