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.

Dobre i smaczne, tresciwe i ostrygi wyczuwalne troche karmelu i na koncu gozkawy chmiel. Wyglad natomiast nie oszalamia. Niewielka piana, kolor przeswitujacy jak na stouta z rubinowymi refleksami, w zasadzie przypominal troche portera niz stouta. Ale ogolnie smakowo jest dobrze.

# 3404 ersma: bier mit austern. hierzulande ja noch ne rarität, in uk gibts erstaunlich viele davon. sehr dunkel braun, fast schwarz. dezente verschäumung. der geruch ist süßlich, melassig mit ein wenig lakritz. der antrunk ist röstmalzig, süßlich. etwas lakritz und im hintergrund etwas schwer zu definierendes, was wohl auster ist, obwohl die ungebraut ganz anders schmecken. hat irgendwie etwas kühles, so ähnlich wie anis (nicht der geschmack, das kühle). die mitte bringt hopfen mit, wenn auch nur dezent. im abgang herber, dazu bleibts süßlich, der abgang ist herber, die kühle ist nach wie vor vorhanden, ebenso eine leichte süße. die flasche sieht gut aus. fazit: hatte ich mir jetzt austeriger vorgestellt. dennoch gut trinkbar. 9,10,10,10,12,10 - 10,00 - 18/9/13

Backlog of ratings. Thanks to someone at one of bu11zeye’s tastings. The look is brownish in color, clear, and has an off white head. The smell is sweet, dried fruits, malts, roasted and different. The taste is dried fruits, malts, and slight roast.

A dark brown, slightly opaque body with a tan head that had some nice retention and nice lace. Aroma had some nice roasted malts, some sweetness to it almost like a milk stout. There a nice mineral quality which I guess was the oysters. Flavor seemed to have a little more sweetness then I expected. There was still nice roasted malts and some coffee like flavors, but it was mostly sweet. I did not taste the mineral quality that I got in the aroma. Finish was slightly dry. Carbonation seemed slightly high.
