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.

From a bottle poured black with a good amount of head. Nice smooth sweet toasted malty flavor with a quick finish.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2010
Bottle at Redlight Redlight, Orlando. Pours a little thin, dark with a nice roasted aroma. Flavor is full of roast. Pretty easy drinking. More of an Irish Stout type brew. Not really any brine. Not bad at all.

obguthr (4527) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Charcoal, bark, and dark roasted barley malt aroma. Clear mahogany, thick tan head, good lace. Roasted malt flavor with a conspicuous grassy hop accent. Fine balance, not very complex. A bit tinny and chemical. Ok, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2010
11.2 oz bottle. Slightly briny nose, roasted malts with hints of chocolate and vanilla. Pours very dark brown with reddish hues when held to a light. Roasted malts, with briny hints, anise notes with bitter chocolate, sharp and dry. Not bad. I want more oyster brininess!

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - APR 12, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured like a 3 layer chocolate milkshake from dark bottom chocolate to lighter chocolate foamy top. Nose is roasted malts and sea salt. Or it’s just off. Rich and creamy mouthful. Nice roasted malt followed by some salty notes with an odd bitter finish. Weird but good.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2010
Draught at 28 Erbe, Genova. This was tapped for St. Patty’s Day. Appears rubyish brown with thick creamy tanned head. Plenty of chocolate and coffee on the nose. Quite fruity as well. Flavour is also chocolate, coffee, fruit and a light hint of smoke. Tastes good. Smooth and bitter on the palate. Nice chocolately finish. Decent.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 10, 2010
(330 ml bottle from Downeast Beverage) Pours very dark brown, nearly opaque with at least three fingers of rocky tan head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee roast with just a bit of an organic, mud-flat, briny quality. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, fairly thick but a touch prickly. Perhaps lightly oily but also dryish. Flavor of chocolate and coffee, fairly standard stout flavor but there is a bit of briny oyster that creeps in around the finish. Bitter. Just sort of a slight, odd, slightly vegetal/organic/slightly sulfuric marine quality about the whole thing that is a bit detracting but other than that pretty good. Would like to try this fresh on draft in Dublin with some Galway oysters.

sfhodense (4790) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - APR 9, 2010
Pours dark reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, smoke and light chocolate. Flavour is roasted malt, light malt acidic, light chocolate and coffee. Notes of Liquorish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours a black body with a fluffy rocky tan head with great retention. Roast y body, hint of clam oyster shell and salt. Mmm aroma is a bit unique. Sea salt, a light clammy body with a herbal earth y hop tone, and some light caramel malts. An odd ball, but still nice, wish i was eating sushi with this!

Drake (10406) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2010
11.2 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear very dark brown color with a voluminous brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of chocolate, light roastiness and a briny note. The taste is chocolate, floral and fruit hop notes, light smoke and roastiness and a mineral quality from the oysters. Medium bodied and quite smooth. Good stout.
