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.

Bottle: Pours darkish brown with a nice head. Light roast and cardboard with a hint of kelp. The flavor is lightly salty and sweet with malt and a touch of earthyness. Good, but I like to see some oyster flavor pronounced in an oyster stout.

rosenbergh (9681) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2010
Draught at Charlieís, KÝbenhavn, Denmark. As Porterhouse Dublin Stout.
I believe this is the same stout as Porterhouse Dublin Stout on tap in Charlieís in Copenhagen. Reddish brown almost black colour with creamy tan head. Grassy hops, birch and malt in aroma. Flavour malt, coffee and grassy hops. Creamy.

330ml bottle from Brewforia. How cool is a pull tab cap on a bottle? I say it is very cool.........
Appearance: Pours dark mahogany with a medium sized beige head and some lacing in the glass
Aroma: Dark malts and fruits and definitely oysters
Taste: Toasted malts, coffee, oysters, salty and some bitterness in the finish
Wow, this is great. Iíve had a few Oyster Stouts and this one is definitely the best one Iíve had,

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2011 Draft @ Porterhouse brewery taps in Dublin (accumulated ratings over many visits). Looks similar to the Plain Stout, is not totally opaque in the light and has a red tint. Smokey aroma is very inviting. Distinct cinnamon and clove, and light smoke are making this unique. Also has a nice fruitiness that adds a good touch of acidity for the balance. Makes it extra drinkable. Excellent! I revisited this again and again and came to really enjoy, almost crave it! This and Wrasslers are go-to Dublin beers. Much better here than at the London tap. Rating reflects Dublin, London is below!

Nitro tap @ Porterhouse, London. Not fully opaque but pitch black. Mild aroma has mild malt, mellow and clean with a hint of smoke. Creamy mouthfeel. Is quaffable. Coffee flavors. Some vanilla creme. Is decent but nothing special. 7-3-7-4-13

My second sample of this, had to buy a bottle because of the pop-top cap. Pours a clear deep mahogany brown, has a nice glow to it, shinny, frothy off-white thin head. Aroma is quite aromatic (yes, I can say that), floral, lightly sweet, nice flowers, something I canít figure out, maybe it is sage...? maybe a touch of anise. Flavor follows, super dry, very dry, but in a good way, again with the anise and sage, light brine in the middle, soft acidic roast, lightly round, very clean and dry. The dryness is ridiculous, it still is full flavored but is bone-dry, sparkling fizzy carbonation, very nice.

very dark brown almost black. Drank from a 12 oz. It actually tastes really good. Lightly salty and smoked flavors comes through, Almost reminds me of a bacon stout but not a distinct bacon flavor.

EithCubes (5429) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle with the pull-away ring. Nose is dusty roast and blackened malt. Noble hops and a light metallic tang. Caramel/Coke pour with lots of carbonation and a fizzy light brown head. Thin body is sharply roasty with medium stouty bitterness, dry and very salty with wood and ash underneath the inkiness. Aftertaste is brutally dry and salty/bitter. Inky indeed. Reminds of a few things from Hitachino Nest, and thatís a compliment from someone interested in unusual flavors.
