COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dry Irish Stout, it has light body, low calories compared to other brews, low carbs and low alcohol, around 4.5%. This is not a heavy beer. It is brewed with 5# of oysters, shell and all. In an effort to distinguish themselves from the Pub Up The Way, Irish and English brewers would add the local oysters to their brews. There is no distinguishable oyster flavor in the beerbut they add Sea Salt, Calcium and other Minerals that become part of the overall flavor. There are some other micro-brew oyster beers available on a seasonal basis.

Tap @ OysterHouse. Very dark with lush mocha head (nitro). Smells like a frappucino- coffee plus sweet and maybe some chocolate. Flavor is roasty but not too sweet. Round & smooth.

b3shine (6570) - Indiana, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Cask to taster at OysterHouse. This batch is 4.8%. Looks good; a fairly opaque dark cola with light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and light roast. Tastes like it smells with a bit of a mineral taste and a fairly dry mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

phaleslu (7536) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Taster at the brewpub. The flagship stout. Pours a dark brown with a lot of carbonation bubbles stuck to the inside of the glass and a small khaki head atop the beer. Notes of toasted and roasted malts, salt, chocolate, fudge, and minerals. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, smooth mouthfeel. Really nice; good branding and presentation for the flagship beer.

DrSilverworm (8541) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Taster on tap at OysterHouse during RBWG. Black color. Some head. Good milk chocolate aroma. Good light savory taste to it, some sweet. Light hint of oyster, yeah. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, kind of creamy texture. Good longer creamy dark malt and lightly oystery aftertaste.
