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.

Ughsmash (7267) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Bottled. Poured clear medium brown with a two-fingered, sticky cap of beige head. The aroma picked up lactic notes over honey, molasses, and licorice maltage.. sweet overall and nicely roasty. The flavor found more of the same malts, with a surprising amount of honey.. lactic sourness and mineraly notes laced throughout.. moderate roast, but quite sweet. Medium-bodied at most with grainy bitterness all around.. the lactose and minerals complemented fairly well.. carbonation was on the higher end. This was an easy-drinkin’, tasty stout.

nearbeer (4000) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2010
330 ml bottle with a pull-tab cap! Says 5.2% abv instead of the 4.8% listed here. Translucent chestnut with a ruby tint, and a small thin disc of cream above. Aroma is a nice blend of coffee, cocoa, caramel, and a bit of iodine and char. Tastes of graham cracker, coffee, spicy green herbs and hints of marshmallow. Long finish of charred driftwood and soft mellow grain. Medium-heavy body is well balanced, drinkably thinnish, and tingly with acidity.

bhensonb (11997) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Pours black with a good, foamy, beige/tan head. Aroma is herby/oceany and smooth burnt malt. Medium body; foamy carbonation. There’s a medicinal aspect (oysters?) and some nice smooth burnt malt. Good drink.

Shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a nice beige head and a strong dark malt aroma. The flavor is chocolate with a hint of oyster. Very dry.

On nitro tap at Sour Fest- yep, I still had a porter. Pours a wonderful black hue with a large white nitro head. The aroma is smooth rich toasted malts and caramel. Sweet almost bready, rich caramel and toasted malts, smooth and easy. Nice.

NachlamSie (2900) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle with a weird pull-off tab that reminds me of a grenade or maybe a can of vienna sausages. Picked this one up at PJ’s Mart in Sylva. The pour is rather dark with an attractive light head. It looks Irish. Aroma is a little sour with some salty notes along with hints at meat and mocha. Palate is pretty slick and fulfilling. The flavor is identifiable as a dry stout, for sure. A bit of meaty flavor along with mild bitterness is here along with a salty thing going on that reminds me of oysters. It’s very similar to salty Guinness. Not too bad.

GT2 (9132) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Bottle. Hahaha not suitable for vegetarians. Regardless, this has no oyster character whatsoever so no need to panic. Pours a clear, deep ruby with a large, rocky, grayish/tan head. Excellent poofy lace. Subdued aroma with black cherry soda. Taste is slightly roasty, extremely light-bodied, with a watery mouthfeel.

Rustyham (1781) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Light black and translucent. Aroma and flavor are of stinky old seafood. Nasty. Only worth the tick. Sampled at the "Guess who’s back..." tasting.
