Draft at Cafe Mojo, Urbanna VA: Tree bark and coffee nose, not strong. Cola brown, thin head. Tastes like it smells. Dry, not strongly alkali as I would hope from an oyster stout, nor is it briney. Lacks intensity.

Draught pours dark brown with a light brown head. Aromas of roast malt. Taste is roasts with some mild satiness. Straightforward stout, tasty. Body is light enough to session the beer, but pretty flavorful. Overall a nice session stout.

Drake (8442) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a dark brown color with a medium creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of dry roasted malts, chocolate and a faint bit of green banana. The taste is roasted and sweet malts, minerals, brine and smoke. Medium-full bodied. Nice beer.

Draft at Meridian Pint. Poured a near-black color with a creamy tan head. Aroma was sweet, roasted malts, coffee notes. To be fair there my have been oysters in there but I don’t know what oysters smell like. Light chocolates, good roasted qualities - very smooth and enjoyable.

I thought this was one of the better dry stouts that I’ve had...Oysters show in the saltiness and brinyness of the beer. Pours black with moderate white head. Body is medium, relatively light for a stout. You taste roasted malt and the saltiness. Finish is relatively quick, maybe even slightly sweet, doesn’t linger long at all.

Travlr (11132) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Draft. Dark clear brown color, bright beige edge head, solid lacing. Aroma of light milk chocolate. Taste is coffee grounds. Nice enough.

BeerandBlues2 (9597) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Tap. Pours near opaque with a medium, creamy light tan head, medium-short retention with light lacing. Aroma is oysters, dark chocolate and coffee notes, dark fruits, and no hops. Flavor is dark chocolate, light bitterness, oysters and calcium, dark fruits, and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

Wow. A great beer. Couldn’t taste the oysters at all (which is a good thing). Maybe just the slightest touch of brine. This beer is great.
