Brewed with fresh oyster. A smooth drinking aromatic stout with a discernible but unidentifiable aromatic aspect. Not suitable for vegetarians.

Nydt i pint, fra flaske. MHT 23-09-15. Moderat maltduft med tydelig kaffe, brændte noter, mørkt chokolade og lakrids, også lidt karamelsødme og dertil nogen vanilje. Humlen er også moderat med duft af citrus og appelsin. Fin cremet, lettere brusende gennemsnitlig råhvid skumkrone, som er mest aftagende og blonderne er rimelige. Kroppen er dunkel og farven er næsten sort. Smagen er startende med let sødme i form af brunt sukker, karamel og dertil moderat bitterhed ved smag af citrus. Afslutningsvis er den moderat sød og stadig moderat bitter med en smule surhed. Smagsvarigheden er gennemsnitlig. Kroppen er let til medium og teksturen er tør med blød kulsyre. Afslutningsvis noget saltet. Lækker traditionel østers stout!

SinH4 (975) - SWITZERLAND - APR 17, 2015
Great black color with tan head. Dry malts, dark fruits in the aroma. Taste is rich for the ABV, good and not watery at all. Very nice bitterness in the end, a bit of salt even. Good aftertaste. I am impressed.

Ambro206 (272) - ITALY - MAR 23, 2015
Birra scura impenetrabile. Aromi netti di tostato. In bocca l’inconfiondibile salato si amalgama con il resto. Carbonazione assente e perfetta. Corpo pienissimo. Ottimo esempio dello stile.

Reddish brown color, small tan head. Lots of lacing. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. Aroma has a mix of red and dark fruits and roasted malt. Taste is ... Well, something different for me. Red and dark fruits are still there, lots of roasted malt, sea salt and some strange, interesting notes that simply must be oysters. Finish is very salty but also surprisingly hoppy. Salty feel stays for a long time. Very interesting, very tasty... Too bad it lacks body.
