Bottle. Pours dark brown with a massive "shaken cola" head. Aromas are a little chalky and mostly cola and earth scented. Flavor is decent enough... the chalkiness that came out of the first sip has gone away and itís enjoyable enough, but still a little underpowered. Autumn leaves, topsoil, a hint of chocolate, cola and an odd blood (oxidation?) edge sum things up. Decent, especially considering the low(-ish) ABV, but not very bold.

Atom (1212) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2012
12oz bottle pours dark brown/black with a medium khaki head. Aroma of roasted dark malts, chocolate, nuts, coffee, and salty. Taste has same flavors as aroma, roasted and smoked malts, sweet to bitter with a slick texture. Oysters present more so in the aroma. Decent.

Beer brewed with oysters! I saw that and immediately grabbed it. I dont really taste any fish/ oyster notes.... So not sure what it was supposed to add. It is overall slightly smokey and easy drinking.

holdenn (2077) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2012
12oz bottle from Binnys Lakeview. Brown black with a beige head. Roasted earthy/cocoa aroma. There might be some oysters, int here, I canít identify the interesting stout notes. Bitter roast flavors thatís not cloying or overly bitter. Simple black patent, not overdone.

FunkyBrewster (1517) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours nearly black with a big cream tan head. Aroma is sweet and cocoa with some marshmallow and coffee notes. Flavor has a lot of the same, a touch of a mineral character, coffee, cocoa. Sweet finish. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Good beer

Dry, sweet, smooth, and toasty. Iím not noticing the oysters, but very good regardless.

Scipio (650) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Pours a black with a tan head. Aroma is lighter, a bit salty, with chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. I get more vanilla in the taste, with coffee, some nuttiness also, with chocolate being a more minor flavor. Still, the taste is still lacking, but the aftertaste is more available than I expected. That is vanilla and nutty. Smooth and dry, while a bit lighter in body. What gives this a plus is that the the agreeable taste is a bit different than many stouts. This one isnít fantastic, but it is definitely enjoyable.

strongpieman (1390) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Draft on nitro. Black, with a tall tan nitro foamy head. Dry stout, smooth, strong coffee notes. Very good and will look for again.

LtDan (1743) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a tight tan film a top.

Aroma: Cola, Chocolate, euro dry hop.

Taste: Peppery roast, euro hops, light coffee, finishes bitter and roasty.

Mouthfeel: Rough, full bodied.

Overall: A very tasty stout, not nearly as pronounced as some other oyster stouts Iíve tried in the body and flavor department.

emacgee (3875) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Pours opaque black with one finger of light tan head . Nose is similar to an Irish Stout (ah, hence dry stout brewed with oysters...) sweet caramel and diacetyl with some papery malt notes and mild saline character. Forward roast in the flavor, diacetyl and notes of caramel. Soft body and carbonation with a medium bitterness. A slightly smoky character from the roasted grain. Dry stouts arenít my thing.
