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.

On tap at the Porterhouse Dublin. Opaque blackish brown body with a creamy tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate. Taste of coffee, chocolate and seaweed. I’d like to try this one carbonated rather than on nitro, just to see what else I could find in the flavors.

Fantastic!one of my favourite stout!deep dark with beautiful creamy head,aroma of dark bitter chocolate and espresso oyster undertone. As a pilsener lover I must stop after 2-3 pint. I like to degustate this stout slowly. I tasted this beer in Dublin,eating fish like prawns. My local pub have this beer,he-he!
