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.

A pitch black beer thick creamy tan head. The aroma is light malt and some coffee. The flavor is slightly roasted, with caramel and a slight salty end. Finishes soft and smooth. Great stout.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown-orange color with a large tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and some briney saltiness. The flavor is roasted malt with some hop bitterness. I also get some chocolate and some salt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

330 ml bottle, says 5.2% ABV. Served in a Sam Adams BL glass, the beer pours dark brown with a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and an aroma that I can’t identify. I assume that’s from the oysters, but I could be wrong about that. This brew tastes good, I can taste roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a minerally and slightly salty taste that I’m pretty sure comes from the oysters. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, but it does seems a bit thin for a stout. Good carbonation. Drinkability is good, it’s smooth, a little bit slick and goes down easy. In my opinion this brew wasn’t quite as good as Harpoon’s Island Creek Oyster Stout, but it’s still a good brew and definitely worth a try. I’d buy this again in the future.

Pours a dark copper brown with an offensively light beige creamy head. Nose is sweet, earthy, grainy, some day old coffee, chocolate. Tastes like Warsteiner Cola...Flavor leaves much to be desired, crisp, sweet, strange, bitter and astringent. No idea whats going on here but I dont likes it.

Svesse (7600) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2010
(Draught at Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London, 23 May 2010) Dark brown colour, almost black, with creamy beige head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of coffee, cocoa and dark fruit. Roasted, malty taste with dark chocolate, coffee, dark rye bread and a generous coffee bitterness in a well balanced finish. Medium body, dry. A good example of a well made, solid and tasty dry stout.

The aroma is right on par for the style with toasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a slight saltiness. The appearance is dark brown with an average head. The taste is like the aroma without any oysters detectable save a bit of saltiness. The palate is smooth but not very thick. Overall a good drink that I could keep drinking all day but seems lackluster somehow.

Little sharp wet ginger aroma and some brine, dark clear coffee and a slippery moussey tan head. goodness more ginger up front, odd. dusty chalky midpalate, cocoa finish.
