Darkest brown, medium body with licorice, roasted malts and slight medicinal aftertaste. Maybe not the best pick from the beer fridge for a hot summer night.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Equal parts dark caramel and soy sauce with touches of smoke, burnt wood / sawdust, wet greens, peanut butter. Dusty burnt cereals and inky-chewy sugars give it an oyster sauce resemblance, but maybe Iím being led to that by the name. Itís medium bodied and rich and sticky in the finish. The oyster-mineral touches are nice, but the malt isnít sitting right for me.

05/18/16 On tap at American Tap Room in the Dulles, VA airport - 16oz draft in a pint glass. Nice very dark to black poor with a finger and a half "Guinness" head which settles to a very nice lingering lacing. Extremely nice malt and hop balance with an earthy finish. Extremely smooth and drinkable.
