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.

brokensail (12519) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
A: The pour is almost black in color with a very minimal mocha colored head on top. S: The nose is heavily roasty with a lot of coffee notes. There is a mild chocolate aroma to it along with a slight salt and pepper smell. T: The saltiness comes through quite a bit more in the flavor, which I would believe comes from the oysters. There is a bit of a peppery flavor, along with a lot of roast and some coffee and a light bitterness. M: The body is medium with a low-to-medium level of carbonation. D: This was my first oyster stout, so I didn’t really know what I was getting in to. I quite liked it and while the saltiness was noticeable, I think it added a nice dimension to the beer.
