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.

angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Nice roasted aroma. Had a decent head. The flavor is hard to describe except to say in that the obvious that it gave it an oyster flavor! Was also bitter and had a dry finish. Anyway it tasted pretty good which is the most important thing.

[2151-20090515] Tap. Sweet soapy evergreen aroma with mild spearment gum. Clear, dark red brown body with a small long-lasting creamy light tan head and thick lacing. Floral water and heavy malt flavour with some roast. Medium body is a little thin. Average.

jercraigs (8059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2009
2009-05-15. Very dark brown body with a creamy tan head and lace. (4+) Flavour is interesting, a tangy character to the dark malt. Roasty malt is present but not strong, dark malt base. Bitterness grows as it goes on. (6+) Light roast in aroma, I swear I smell oysters but it my just be a combination of my imagination and the arrival of a plate of mussels at the next table. Muted malt. (6+) Creamy average plus palate. (3+) On tap at the brewpub.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - FEB 19, 2009
Deep black with a huge nitro white lacing head. Light aromas, chocolatey, fruitier than any stout I’ve ever had. Some coffee. Too watery and light flavoured. Unimpressive.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2009
Porterhouse Central, Dublin. Approaching pitch, ruby tints, drapes of lace. Fresh roasted barley, whiff of bonfire and espesso choc aroma. Mellow but fruitier and way more burnt than the Gwince. Milky mocca, cocoa and coniferous hop notes discernible through the tongue-numbing nitro chill. Dab of salt. Shellfish not to be sniffed. Decent.

Nitrokeg at the Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Black brown with a creamy tan head. Fresh and roasty with hints of coffee and chocolate and a very slight saltiiness. Guiness in Ireland used to taste almost as good as this before they started pasturising it.
