Bottle. Perfectly serviceable beer. Slightly odd aroma and flavor - perhaps secondary to the oyster shells. Overall, balanced and drinkable, but subdued/weak flavor/body as compare to your typical stout.

A little heavy after a really long day. A perfectly acceptable stout, I should have had something else ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JAN 26, 2015
A reddish black body with a tan head that had good retention. Aroma was mix of roasted malts and salinity. Flavor was similar. A slightly dry finish. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Coffee black pour with a decent tan head. Hints of chocolate and some roasted malts in the nose. Flavor is as expected with some chocolate undertones and some faint saltiness in there, but rather tame. Not bad, just average.

Beer of month club. Pours cola color with minimal head. Nose of roasted malt - somewhat subtle. Taste is very heavy on roasted malt, with some chocolate and coffee undertones. It is smooth, easy to drink. A pretty average stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

floydslip (253) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Dark cola-colored beer with a thin light tan head. Subtle nose of cocoa, light coffee, and a bit of yeast. Flavor is also mellow for a stout, but pleasant, with coffee, chocolate, and a bit of roasted grain, all rather light. It has a more sparkling effervescence than a rich, creamy texture of a full-bodied stout. Probably more suited to people not used to beer with a lot of flavor, but a bit tame for me. Still, I am glad I tried it.

Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee and caramel. Taste is sweet with a hint of brine, however this may just be my imagination after reading the label. Medium bodied with a slick texture, almost creamy but not quite. Decent.

I'm not usually a stout drinker but I liked this one very much. Smooth with a great flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JDBaker11058 (1538) - Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Appearance: on the lighter side for a stout; almost a water pour, clear dark brown with amber/red highlights, a short, slight, creamy light tan head quickly shrinking to a collar. Aroma: cocoa powder, brine, sawgrass, cold coffee. Taste: semisweet and dry chocolate, slightly roasty with coffee, hint of sour cream, and a good undertone of briny bitterness. Finish: smooth, dry, bittersweet and light. Notes: Could almost be categorized as a dry stout, but not quite roasty enough for that appellation. Liked the very subtle saltwater note. Although oysters repulse me, this beer most certainly did not. On draught into a growler at Roots Market in Rockville, Maryland.

Bottle. Chocolate malt and light salt aroma. Dark chestnut with small head. Sweet-lightly salty chocolate and roasted barley malt flavor. Body a bit light. Pleasant tasting.
