COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with fresh oyster. A smooth drinking aromatic stout with a discernible but unidentifiable aromatic aspect. Not suitable for vegetarians.

Fresh oysters added during the brewing process, lend a discernible yet unidentifiable note.

nimbleprop (4809) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2008
On tap at the Porterhouse on Nassau Street in Dublin. Pours a heavy, opaque black with a bright white, creamy head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, toast and grain. The flavor is similar, sweeter with less roasted flavor. Finish is creamy and thick but not syrupy. Very well crafted beer, good session beer and probably their flagship next to the plain porter.

A Mes rate: Draught at the Porterhouse.
Deep dark red with a thick nitro head. Bland malty aroma with not much else happening. Rich chocolate flavour with some blackcurrant. Nothing special.

Daithi8640862 (24) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 25, 2008
This is such an unusual stout and definitely an acquired taste but I like. There is a definite taste of oyster layered in the more pronounced sweetness and a thinness on the palate and a dry finish.

MaltOMeal (1091) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2008
pint draft at the Porterhouse in Covent Garden, London. Pours black with a large light brown head. Not a powerful smell, but did have scent of coffee. Taste was of coffee roasty malt and a bit of salty oyster in there. Mouthfeel was dry and chalky but thinner than I would have liked. Not bad.
