Mild roasted aroma, pours an opaque black with a light tan head. Light body, with roasted notes, and an off flavor that I assume is the oysters. The only reason this beer is in my possession is that the Flying Dog mixed pack had this in it instead of the Robust porter. It’s drinkable, but not anywhere near my liking.

Smells like a stout But a little different like oatmeal? Very dark black appearance...smooth malty roasted taste off the bat...more bitter on finish...too hoppy a finish for me

Pours a deep brown with very little head. Coffee aroma with a little smoky hint. Coffee and faint salt on the flavor with the oyster/salt left behind. Not bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Color of this beer is so dark brown that it is black. This beer is so thick that you can not see through it. From a carbonation standpoint, this beer is lightly carbonated with limited bubbles flowing through this pour. This beer has a deep roasted smell and aroma almost similar to when you open a bag of coffee beans. The taste is slightly bitter but delicious. Overall this beer is like black silk and definitely worth the try for you fans of stouts and porters!

Solid tasting stout. Not as silky smooth as some others. I did not taste the oysters, but love the idea!

Sampler from brewery. Cloudy dark brown with thin tan head and medium body. Some dark chocolate notes, but not a distinctive oyster stout flavor. Bitter finish.

Pours dark with short-lived tan head. Pleasant aroma. Taste is nice balance between sweet and salty. Pleasant after taste on palette.
