COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with fresh oyster. A smooth drinking aromatic stout with a discernible but unidentifiable aromatic aspect. Not suitable for vegetarians. This gently flavored stout has a roast malt character, full body and an aromatic character from the Goldings hops. Fresh oysters added during the brewing process, lend a discernible yet unidentifiable note.

12 oz. bottle at the Brick Store Pub. Pours black with a short dark tan head. The aroma is coffee, saltwater, and raw oysters. It tastes like a run-down waterfront. Overly bitter and unpleasant. Even if you like oysters, you probably won’t like this.

Strykzone (5386) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Unique pull off top. Dark reddish black with a two finger oatmeal looking fluffy foam. A nose of coffee, anise, a bit of funk, and light smoky fish. A feel that offers a nice zing but is a bit thin. Flavor is also anise, cocoa, that smoky funky fish, and a light bitter aftertaste. Interesting and nice but not spectacular.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 23, 2010
bottle from papago consumed 7/13/10... pours a deep dark reddish brown shade of black capped by a beige head. it smells of chocolate, roast, caramel, grass, vanilla, smoky wood and a briny note akin to sea kelp. the flavor is fo’ sho’ briny, kelpy, saline and a bit bitter iodine on the finish. in between are notes of all the characteristics from the aroma with a bit of chalkiness, milky oyster texture and phlegmy coating. medium bodied, soft, smooth and slick yet crisp and terribly drinkable.8/4/8/4/16/4.0

BOLTZ7555 (2939) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 23, 2010
Dark translucent mahogany pour produced a 1-inch thick latte head. Aroma is weak, with a bit of coffee and malt. Flavor is more aggressive with some bitterness. Coffee, cocoa, and caramel...no real salty/briny quality captured by the oysters. Pleasant mouthfeel. Solid.

patrick767 (3724) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2010
tap at the Temple Bar location - Pours near black with a dark roast malt aroma. It tastes of dark roast malt and mocha. There’s a medium to full body and a lightly bitter, mocha rich finish.

asedzie (657) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Bottle. Pours deep shade of brown with moderate off-white head, a bit of lacing as it recedes. Very textured aroma has whiffs of caramel and vanilla beneath, light grassy hops and overriding earthy brininess. Palate is quite carbonated and medium bodied. Flavor is very dry, mild fruitiness and some herbal hop resins and just a bit of smokiness and saltiness in the finish.

IrishBoy (3926) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 15, 2010
330 ml bottle from Country Club. Nose of chocolate, coffee, and oats. Black with a big, tiny bubbled, glass lacing tan head. Flavor is coffee and oatmeal with a nice contrasting bitterness and a hint of molasses. Great Irish stout

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
330ml bottle shared with biegaman. Deep clear ruby with a smallish tan head. Aroma of Nutella, light peat, salt, semi-sweet chocolate and coffee - very smooth and appealing - no alcohol. Taste - coffee, baker’s chocolate, salt, herbal bitterness - nice, not quite as smooth as the aroma, but nice. Slick, herbal, midly carbonated, solid-bodied - finishes with an odd yeasty bit of apple! Really nice stout - lightish, but good.

Ibrew2or3 (7361) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Courtesy of Blazer06. Bottle with very odd (to me) pull tab bottle cap. It pours mahogany with off white head. The aroma is roasty, out of place dark fruitiness, brown sugar, spices and chocolate malts. It smells a bit disjointed. The taste is prickly with carbonation and thin in body creating notes of roasted malts, some spicy yeast, some mild cherry meat, more spices, chocolate malts and a thin layer of earthiness. Interesting.

bu11zeye (12112) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2010
(330ml bottle) Pours a clear mahogany body with a tall dense beige head. Aroma of nuts, some spruce, caramel, maple, roasted grain, and leather. Flavor of roasted malt, earth, subtle saltiness, herbs, and some coffee.
