The beer is a nice basic stout. I wish it wasn't labeled an oyster stout. That made me expect a little more. Just a stout with a dash of salt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours really dark but is still penetrable by light. Lots of bubble on the glass and has a tan foam head that is quick to dissipate. Smells like any normal stout with a lot of saltiness and a small amount of dark chocolate. Quiet watery body as the glass would suggest with a lot of carbonation. Taste follows light normal tasting stout (ex guiness draught) with plenty of saltiness, carbonation and a little dark chocolate. If you like Oyster Stouts cool, I just feel like someone put salt water in my average sessionable stout.

Pours black with tan head. Roasted malt and chocolate aromas. Burnt malt flavor with some milk chocolate. Slightly ashy and a little salty. Medium to full body with soft carbonation.

Bottle from the BP in Sylva. Pours really dark with a tan head. The aroma is nutty with hints at chocolate, coffee and a bit of hops. Body is creamy. The flavor is solid with plenty of brownie flavor and coffee. I can’t really taste the oysters like in other oyster stouts. Maybe there is a minerally quality, nothing standout. This is a really tasty stout though.

Pearl? Ok, this a brown dark stout. You smell roasted malt, mainly and coffee. Probably I got impressed about the "pearl" but in reality what I tasted was a common stout: roasted malt and coffee. Dry bitterness, low carbonated, good mounthfeel. 3.6 is enough, and is not bad.
