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.

DruncanVeasey (7379) - 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.

bobinlondon (1258) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2008
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.

thewolf (11312) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2008
Tap @ Porterhouse, London.
Pours brown with an impressive, very creamy, off-white head. Mild aroma of nuts and soft roasted malts. A bit light in mouthfeel with an okay creaminess. Flavour is nice, sweet chocolate, lightly roasted and good long, dry finish. Some lidt tart fruitiness.

Rune (8823) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2008
Draught. Third pint measured glass on a sample tray at Porterhouse, Covent Garden London. Creamy, off-white head on top of a black body with some ruby highlights. Great laceworks on the glass. Smell of roasted grain. The taste is bitter with salty hints, but also some brief notes of sweetness can be spotted. Silky, but a bit thin, mouthfeel. Well made brew (05.08.2008).

really good stout. Not a whole lot of oyster present maybe a little sea water in the aftertaste. This is very creamy and lightly bitter. Good.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2008
Darker brown almost black coloured beer with an average off-white head. Herby, very special aroma with some spicy roasted touches. Full palate. Finish is again herby/ spicy with some light roasted alcoholic hints. Not bad.
