Pours thick and black with a off white head, laces well. Strong flavours of burnt caramel and coffee. Love it

Rock solid RIS with a few nice touches to give it a unique character. A touch brinny and estery melding with the smooth body and moderately expressed chocolate and roast flavours. Not an arnie, more like a vin diesel. Well rounded and hiding the ABV pretty well.

TimE (3298) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 13, 2013
Dark brown color. Intense tobacco, molasses, dark chocolate, dark fruit, fairly smokey. Lovely intense nose. The mouth is medium full with lots of brownies and molasses notes. Mouth is a bit weak, but I love the smokiness and roasted malts. Nice brininess and a touch salty. Really lovely. Nice lingering roasted malty finish with moderate bitterness. The yeast is a bit funky Belgian, but nothing too wild, which works well. The nose is fantastic and the rest of the beer is very good.

Tap @ The Taphouse. Very dark brown with a well retained medium sized tan head. Chocolate and hints of the sea on the nose. Flavours of dark chocolate, bread, coffee and a wonderful savoury element introduced by the oysters and mussels. Wonderful smooth mouthfeel, slightly oily and considering it sits at 10% the alcohol is well integrated. Great beer.

Aroma is salty sea water. Taste is the same with very persistent seafood saltiness now. Syrupy. Bit too much for me. Briney sickly. But the best of its kind of the beers I’ve tried.

330ml bottle from Archive. Nothing but goodness comes from this bottle. Thick pitch black looking with a rich and smooth full mouthfeel. Awesomeness in every mouthful.

maneliquor (3210) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle cheers to Owen. Pours black with a small tan head and spotty lacing. Nose shows that sea saltiness I’ve come to expect from oysters with quite a lingering smokiness to it without being too over the top. Sweet salty dark chocolate comes through as well. More so in the taste. Heavier chocolate focus than smoke with salt and beach kind of notes. Oddly works well. Belgian yeast character never really shines. Solid beer

gnoff (7954) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2013
Draught as part of a tasting paddle at Rubber Duckie Taphouse, Sydney, on July 14, 2013.
Described as an "Oyster mussel stout", collaboration with The Crafty Pint.
Black color, dark brown head. Sweet, roasted, salty, alcohol taste. Roasted, chocolate, alcohol aftertaste. Fairly smooth mouthfeel, medium to medium high bitterness. Warming alcohol. Sweet, alcohol, sea, salty scent.

Massive, oily, salty, seafood. Smoke. Seaweed, hints of sweetness too. Pretty amazing.

Bottle. Very dark brown with a small tan head that retreats to the rim after a while. Aroma of molasses, blackberries, the beach in winter, hints of tropical fruit. Oily with low carbonation, mineraly. Sweetish with dark chocolate, coffee-ish roasted flavours, bread, laverbread. Bitterness registers late. Complex finish with spices, coffee, berries, brine. Rounder and mellower than expected with the alcohol fairly well hidden, but the power creeps up after a while. Good stuff.
