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.

Keg at Brewdog. Black, small ring of tan head. Aroma is mostly ash with background milk chocolate. Body is light, some spritz. Taste is light with watery chocolate, light smoke, a touch of salt in the finish, not bitter. Very drinkable stout - knocked this back in seconds.
