COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one-of-a-kind, limited-batch creation has a rich body and a smooth feel derived from a combination of roasted barley and chocolate rye malts. The roasted notes of the stout blend beautifully with the briny, mineral flavors of Island Creek Oysters, which were added to the brew moments after being harvested in Duxbury Bay. An addition of hops adds a hint of bitterness and aroma to balance the sweetness from the malt combination. This beer is best enjoyed in a pint glass with a plate full of Island Creek Oysters.

Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a deep black with very nice tan head. Aroma of dark roast. Flavor of dark roast and a bit of brine, mineral. Mouth feel is medium-heavy body with medium carbonation, also a bit silky. Overall, a tasty stout with a twist!

This is only the 2nd oyster stout that I have had. I wish that I had some oysters to complement this one. Big roasted malt aroma. Some sea aromas as well, though not as smack in the face as I remember the Dogfish Head Oyster Stout being. Dark body with a creamy and lasting brown head. Roasted malts dominate the flavors, some light saltiness and what seems to be a filminess to the body. A sensation that I associate with raw oysters. Not bad, not bad at all.

Very fine pour. Just about black and a 1.5 inch heavy, light-brown head. Salty, malty aroma with a balanced roastiness to it.the palate is cold and has a hard bite. Mineral and salt are very present in the flavor. The bite is most prevalent, then the hops add a little bitterness to the saltiness, and finally faint and sweet chocolate finishes it.

Dark brown with tan head. Smokey roasted aroma. Roasted malt flavor with hints of chocolate and smokeyness. Slight metallic taste with hops finish and a sweet aftertaste. Slight grainy feel in mouth. I was sceptical about trying this but glad I did. Very enjoyable!

Bottle @ redlight redlight. Roasted malts and chocolate on the nose with traces of briny ocean water. Pours black with a solid off white head. Smooth and chocolatey with a briny salty flavor, the saltiness is very subtle, I wish the brininess was a little more pronounced, but its very drinkable.

Tap @ Dunedin for Stogies and Stouts í10. pours dark brown, mocha head. Aroma of light roasted malts, chocolate and could not detect much of any mineral notes. Flavors, mostly chocolate malts and some roast, mild hoppy presence with a sea-salt palate that blended well with what i think was the mineral approach, not much of the oyster seafood palate per se, mild roast and light hop bitterness in the finish. Definitely different and tasty.

22oz Bottle. Finally! My first Oyster Stout. Iím so excited. Pours an even clean black-brown, with a soapy finger of oakwood. Aroma is solid and standard stout, chocolate, minerals, and a touch of salt. Flavors are delicious. Well-roasted fresh malts, sea salt, and ale yeast. Clean, bright, and lightly sweet. I think itís hard to really get to any particular oyster flavor, except maybe a faint sweet juicyness and some extra minerals. Still, a very solid and drinkable stout that is about to pair very well with a plate of fresh oysters.

(bottle - 22 oz) Dark black with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is heavy on the roasted malt and barley. Canít really detect any minerals or oysters, but it smells like a really nice stout. Mild chocolate and some coffee as well. Flavor is rich and roasty at the start. Lots of roasted barley and that very light mineral flavor at the end. Canít really taste the oysters, but being allergic to shellfish, I could definitely tell they were in there. Very well crafted and the saltiness lent a very nice flavor to the body.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with light brownish red hues and a small off white head that leaves light lacing. nose is heavy roast notes, some chocolate and a light salt note. Palate is slick and oily, with a nice fizzy note that tickles and a clean finish aside from a light back molar coat. Flavor is more of the heavy roast and dry chocolate note. Wish the oysters played a heavier role in the nose or mouth, but it is a good stout nonetheless. wow...just sitting here, licking my lips, and it really feels like I ate about 4-5 oysters. My lips are salty, slick. weird. I like it though.
