Black beer with a creamy off white head. Quite a nice stout with a strange taste which is obviously caused by the oysters. Not the breweries best beer but a nice addition to the range.

Black color with a thick Guinness-like head. Sweet and sugary aroma. Earthy taste, some bitter malt and a little salty finish, likely from the oyster. Quite tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I am a vegetarian, but I had to try it... sorry... oysters. Off white creamy head. Dark brown coloration. Normal stout aroma. Very little oyster flavor actually, so I don’t really think that it lived up to the name and hence made my breaking of my dietary choices a vain pursuit. Standard stout taste with the coffee and chocolate malts.
