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.

Taps opaque coffee sable with a nice light tan head. Aroma presents smoky roast malt, quality coffee and licorice tones. Flavor delivers all at the aroma promises and adds a hint of oyster. Yes, oyster indeed. Mouthfeel features body that seems thin for a stout, and some decent fizz. Get moony and stoned.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2015 Really drinkable. Love the flavor with 4.5%. Dry, but not boring. Oyster notes are subtle. Roasted malts and chocolate dominate. Not overly complex but rated so highly for pure drinkability. Sea salt comes through- could say briny. Really smooth. I would expect their flagship to be great, and it is. 12/23 Had this on cask with Hibiscus. Excellent. Wish their glassware were cleaner. Really pretty pink hue to the tan head. Floral notes there, but subtle. All the great notes of the flagship with added smoothness and interest. Points for originality. Love this place!

tia (1668) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2015
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.

jrob21 (3395) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 9, 2014
On tap at the pub, spring break 2014. Light roasty aroma. Smooth and light flavor. A little thin unfortunately but might appeal to the masses.

b3shine (7966) - 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 (9256) - 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.
