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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 canít really taste the oysters like in other oyster stouts. Maybe there is a minerally quality, nothing standout. This is a really tasty stout though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a midnight brown with a 2 finger tan head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is very roasty. Lots of toasted malts, some coffee, cocoa, and a bit of brine. Taste is more toasted malts, bitter coffee, some bitter chocolate, and a hint of sweetness in the end. The mouthfeel is interesting. Itís thin but has a fresh salt water sort of taste to the mouth. Pretty interesting and a good representation of the style.
