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.

Svart farve beige skum. Lukt av røstet malt, og krydder. Smak av røstet malt, krydder og en noe rar, søt - salt smak...kan det være en form for sopp...

Idiosynkrasie (4451) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2014
330ml bottle. Ruby red glowing, darkest brown colour with average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Roasty dark malty aroma, a salty touch, somehow sweet-ish, floral overtones, lavernder, bath salt. Taste is slightly roasty dark malty, moderately sweet, slightly fruity, hints of dark berries, plum, a touch of chocolate, lavender, bath salt; slightly soapy finish. All this soapy and salty stuff is reasonably fascinating at first sight, and may make you puzzling over its origin (oyster?); but further contemplation leads to the conclusion, whatever the origin is, its result, in the end, isn’t that damn f...in’ tasty either.

God duft av frukter, sjokolade og vanilje. Dyp sort farge. Lite skum, liten ring langs kant. Nydelig fruktig smak med en anelse sjokolade.

luttonm (2868) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2014
.33l bottle at Belgrade tasting. Black rich pour, foamy off-white head. Very sweet liquor, traditional english-style stout, some roasty notes. But also some sweet salt water. Very sweet, more than I like.

In Belgrade at a private tasting event. Pours black with a medium foam. Nice balanced nose if roasted malts, no coffee or licorice. Mouth is a plus: salty feel and easy to drink feel. A good stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Aroma was pretty muted with chocolate, dark roasted malt, and toast notes. Taste is similar but with some bitter across the palate. Not much else. I was glad there was no oyster taste cause that seems like a bad combo but i was at least willing to try, right?

330 ml bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, toffee, herbal, and yeast/roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of roast/bready malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of chocolate, caramel, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, light coffee, herbal, salt, and roast/mineral earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, light coffee, salt, herbal, and roast/mineral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of roasted/bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; with decent robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and lightly creamy/chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a pretty good stout. Good complexity and solid robustness of roast/bready malt, earthy hop, and salty oyster flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
