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.

330, pulltop...bottle. Yeah, pulltop bottle. Never seen such a thing before. What will they think of next? Pours black with a dense, creamy, pillowy dark tan head. Nice roasty, salty nose, a little chocolatey, but much more to the brine. Creamy medium body. Soft carb, a little chalky dryness in spots. Nice roast, chocolate, and salty brine combination on the mid-palate. Good intensity and balance of flavor. Mild briny finish. Very sessionable and satisfying little stout.

Bottle: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing light tan head. Dry roasty, lightly smoky nose has a touch of British hops. Starts with light effervescence and a fairly thin body with dry roasty dark malty flavor before an earthy bitter finish with a hint of dark chocolate. Pretty true to the oyster stout style, but I prefer a little more body and sweetness.

Black pour. Slightly briny, roasted grain aroma. Taste is dark roasted grain, dry pretty standard.

Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2010
Tap. An interesting stout. Pours dark black with a strong, tan head. Good nose of roasted malts, light chocolate. Flavor is standard stout up until the finish, at which point there is a detectable uniqueness - the oyster, presumably. A slightly salty, briney quality. It doesn’t necessarily make the beer any better, but it does set it apart from the pack. Medium bodied and pretty smooth.

From a bottle poured black with a good amount of head. Nice smooth sweet toasted malty flavor with a quick finish.

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2010
Bottle at Redlight Redlight, Orlando. Pours a little thin, dark with a nice roasted aroma. Flavor is full of roast. Pretty easy drinking. More of an Irish Stout type brew. Not really any brine. Not bad at all.

obguthr (3913) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Charcoal, bark, and dark roasted barley malt aroma. Clear mahogany, thick tan head, good lace. Roasted malt flavor with a conspicuous grassy hop accent. Fine balance, not very complex. A bit tinny and chemical. Ok, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

11.2 oz bottle. Slightly briny nose, roasted malts with hints of chocolate and vanilla. Pours very dark brown with reddish hues when held to a light. Roasted malts, with briny hints, anise notes with bitter chocolate, sharp and dry. Not bad. I want more oyster brininess!

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - APR 12, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured like a 3 layer chocolate milkshake from dark bottom chocolate to lighter chocolate foamy top. Nose is roasted malts and sea salt. Or it’s just off. Rich and creamy mouthful. Nice roasted malt followed by some salty notes with an odd bitter finish. Weird but good.
