Pours ebony black with medium sized tan head. Nose is dark malt and coffee. Nice and creamy on the palate, with flavors of dark roasted malt, slightly burnt coffee and a hint of hops on the finish. Could not detect any oyster flavors. A good, though, not great, stout.Stands up well to a loaded pastrami and cheese sandwich on pumpernickel with a huge dill pickle.

12 oz. Opaque with a lasting film of bubbles. Nose is chocolate, caramel and vanilla. Tastes of vanilla, malted milk chocolate, toasted walnut, espresso and graham cracker. Medium body is to the sweet side but finishes dry enough with a light astringency. Medium carbonation is mostly smooth but has some fizzy flareups that are my only complaint about this otherwise tasty brew. Well done, though not sure what the oysters may have added other than some body?

12 oz bottle for 1.79. Pours very dark brown, almost black with a dark amber hue to it. Aroma is huge on the coffee and caramel flavors. Slightly chocolatey as well. Taste is similar with a nice roasty flavor at the end. Body is creamy, slightly heavy and low carbonation. Overall this is an excellent stout. I wish they made an imperial version of this beer. But it’s still an excellent, smooth, easily drinkable stout.

Pours very dark with a short head. Nice flavor, roasted but don’t really notice hints of oyster. A good stout, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Oyster stout galattica di Flying Dog che lascia di stucco e ammalia il palato con un gusto intenso e cioccolatoso, con note di malti tostati, caffé e una sfumatura quasi citrica. Corpo denso e setoso. Davvero buona.

Negra, con espuma beige de burbuja fina y poca retención. Suave aroma tostado. De cuerpo ligera y carbonatación media. En boca también suave y equilibrada, tostada. Fácil de beber

Jimthechap (1480) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 19, 2014
Tawny-black in colour with a latte coloured head in a gibbous crescent on top of the body. Deep, inky caramel aromas with Zouta licorice and some salty brine. The aroma isn’t the dark wall of pungency I was expecting, rather it is sexy and elegant with perfumy notes. Silky body and then rich dark caramel and black strap molasses flavours. A spritzy mouthfeel surprises, accompanying definite texture. It is an agglomeration of sensations combining to create a curious beer with harmonious taste sensations. There’s a good finish that is unexpectedly floral and then a dash of salt. Curiouser and curiouser.

Does work well with oysters. Creamy, sweet, and not over the top. Very tastey. One of the best stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
