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.

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 couldnít 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.

brokensail (15737) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
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? Iíve had three beers from them, none of them resembling anything enjoyable. Oh well...

daknole (10848) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 9, 2010
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.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 9, 2010
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 (10188) - 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.

Sledutah (6972) - Utah, USA - SEP 2, 2010
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,

Bottle poured a clear dark brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of milk chocolate, roasted malt, earthiness and light mint. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of dark chocolate, roasted malt and light mint with a crisp finish.

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.
