Thin stout. Some coffee and roasted maltiness. Didn’t get any seafood coming through. Bit of bitterness on the back end. Pretty decent stout.

scoth (522) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Pours dark brown, black in the glass, with a medium diminishing tan head, very fine lacing. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, grass, woody, and maybe oysters. Medium body, just a little thicker than a porter, smooth. Medium sweet, with a medium bitter chocolate finish, a hint of slat and umami. Well balanced and enjoyable.

jake65 (2708) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle: Dark brown pour with a thin beige ring. Bits of sticky lacing throughout the glass. Nose is a little sweeter than expected; roast, espresso, and faintly smoky. Taste is smoky, dry, and roasted malt. Easy drinker.

skoisirius (1727) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bomber. Thick and roasty milk cocoa on the nose. Hints of the sea buried in there somewhere. Flavors are soft and chewy up front, thick and bold in the back. Hints of dirt, burnt chocolate and coffee, yet sweetness from what I’d think was the shells? Who knows. I don’t fully get or taste the oyster in most of these so called ’Oyster Stouts’, but I’ll keep drinking them when they taste this good!

poisoneddwarf (1743) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Bought this bomber for a recipe I’m making tonight. I needed 12 oz of dark beer for that; the rest is going down my throat right now. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, coffee, licorice. Pours opaque black with a medium beige head with decent retention. Taste is bittersweet and savory with flavors of licorice and a unique flavor that I can trick myself into believing has a briny, faintly fishy character that I assume is from the oysters, but if the words "oyster stout" weren’t so boldly prominent on the label oysters would not have even crossed my mind. Tastes very imperialish, more than straightforward stout. Carbonation is spot on for style, mouthfeel is oily, full-bodied. Tasty stuff.

mikedR (1311) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 16, 2014
For the ABV, I really like this one a lot. Smooth base stout -- flavorful, slightly roasty. A tinge of bitterness. Great mouthfeel for the relatively low alcohol level. A tinge of sweetness. Recommended.

pintbypint (2669) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
650ml brown bottle. Bottleshare at Ferris’. Deep brown in colour, fast fading head leaves a ring in the glass, a bit soapy looking. Nose has chocolate, and earth. Taste has earth, dark chocolate and coffee. Roasty finish with good lasting bitterness. A good porter, didn’t get much oyster character though.

Ferris (4748) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle - Slight sweet and salty roast malt. Jet brown with a beige head. Roast malts and a little light brine. Not bad, actually quite good.

3.8
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
maxwelldeux (3761) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Draught as a sampler at the end of the keg. Pours a near black with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose is moderately roasty, with just a bit of some salty ocean notes to it; seems very dry. Taste is very roasty and slightly bitter, with that earthy-ocean bit to it. Very interesting.

3.6
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
The color is near black, with compact beige head. Mild roasted malt aroma. The flavor is quite smooth, off-dry; the roasted malt flavor is not aggressive; there is a light sweet-salty component that improves the experience; correct bitterness.
Overall a good beer, where balance is the key; but I don’t understand why using oysters to brew beer.

Gerbeer (1943) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with moderate head of big bubbles. Aromas of dry milk chocolate, heavily roasted malts, and salt. Similar but lighter, thinner flavors. A session stout...
