On tap at Magnolia. Black with a thin tan head. Light aroma, roasty and sweet. Taste is very nice; roasty, creamy, sweet, brown sugar, light bitter finish. Medium-body, high carbonation. Nice.

brokensail (9943) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Dark brown, maybe black, in color with a soapy tan head. Nose is a little bit briny/salty with a pretty decent roasted malt profile. Some earthy hops, coffee grounds, and a touch of butter. Roasted malt flavor, light bitterness, and coffee. Light butter, some salt, and chocolate.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2012
12 oz. Draft at Magnolia Pub and Brewery, SF, CA. A typical stout in appearance, a little light in mouthfeel for a stout, but the aroma was solid coffee, roasted goodness, a little earthy. The flavor was coffee and roasted notes up front then a little nutty, earthy, and a finish that was a bit salty. The owner’s wife was sitting next to me at the bar and said they use actual oysters in the brewing of this beer. Maybe that’s the saltiness!

From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center Denver 18/09/2010 Slight roast aroma. Dark coloured and rich on the palate with some alcohol present. A hint of bitterness in a smooth oyster roast finish.

marcus (6018) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 9, 2011

ansermadide (1466) - Kyle, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Sampled at the Great American Beer Festival on September 16, 2010. Pretty dark, solid black with a pretty full, frothy light brown head. Oooh... smells strongly roasted. This is definitely on the drier side of stouts. Smooth, silky, but not setting well in my stomach right now.

badlizard (5540) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Not sure how I feel about a stout brewed with oysters but here it goes. Black with a fizzy white head. Sweet chocolate and molasses aroma. Chocolate coffee and a pungent earthy taste with some shell fish notes in the finish.

ryanknock (150) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 19, 2009
There is a really rich flavor profile to this beer. It is well balanced between all the components, yet has a smokiness the permeates and cuts through the roasty flavors. It begins with chocolate, toffee and a slight yeastiness, and ends somewhat dry, smoky and slightly bitter.
