Oyster Stout.
In 1938 the original Hammerton Brewery was famous for being the first in the world to use Oysters as part of the brewing process. In this new recipe we’ve used a variety of flavoursome malts, including a good dose of oats. Fresh wild Maldon oysters are then added to the boil to add a subtle extra complexity to the taste of this stout.

Quite a mild aroma but a massive kick to the front of the mouth. The taste takes a while to develop but when it does it leaves a syrupy aftertaste which packs a massive punch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask(@The brewpub): Literally black, firm tanned head; moderate dry toasty nose, ashy too, some lonely dried fruits underneath; mild to moderate dry bitter flavour with a mild acidity, pretty light bodied; slightly lingering sourish-ashy finish. Good, but not great…

Cask conditioned at Nottingham Beer Festival ’14. Very dark brown with cream head. There is a full, roasty, bitter chocolate note with this, good depth and drying. A later sweetness, but only moderate, lots of depth. Really quite pleasant.
