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.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2010
bouteille, brun clair qcq notes de sel marin, malt caramel, léger au palais, huître se ressentent un peu sans trop dominer le tout, on y note qcq touches de sel et algue; herbes. Palais est moyen voire léger. Si ce n’est pour l’ajout des huîtres,cette bière reste faible et sans grand intérêt sans pour cela être mauvaise..

Pop top cap. Really strange. Huge foamy head, Tons of carbonation. Dark black body. Not a huge aroma, but present. Somewhat like black licorice and anise. Light roasty flavor. Probably my imagination but I suppose I’m tasting a bit of the oyster too. Body more like a black lager than a stout. Interesting to try, but not on my must have list.

beer was a deep ruby red with a rocky head. The usual stout aromas abounded, chocolate and coffee front and centre, but there was something else, lurking in the background, something I couldn’t place. The only thing I could think of was that it had a touch of the sea about it, somewhat akin to the Islay whiskies, perhaps that was pure suggestion, but there we go. As far as drinking goes, lighter than some stouts, but full of flavour and with a long bitter finish, simply put it is great drinking and beats the stuff on nitro in Dublin.

A quickly fading light brown head tops a black body. The nose has some strong notes of coffee and the oyster. There is also some raw grain and dark chocolate. The taste has some nice roasted coffee and grainy bread crust. There is also some hint of cherry, especially in the finish. This is nice.

A: The pour is a very dark brown color with a decent sized tan head. S: The nose is fairly roasty but not all that impressive. A bit of chlorine and salt, and perhaps a tad metallic. T: More of the same in terms of the flavor. What flavors are there are watery and bland and not all that enjoyable. Slightly roasted, salty, and a bit of a mineral quality. M: Fairly light in body with a a similarly light carbonation to it. D: What is it with this brewery? I’ve had three beers from them, none of them resembling anything enjoyable. Oh well...

Dark brown, very light tan head. Aroma has some marshy qualities, light coffee, roast. Flavor shows some very saline and minerals. Light chocolate notes. Quite unique.
