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.

Nitro-draught at The Wharf, Aalborg, as Dublin Bay Oyster, 4.8% ABV
Dark brown color, almost black, with creamy nitrogen head. Smooth texture with a dry mouthfeel. Less roasted malt and more liquorice than expected; some feeling of seaweed and salt, not fishy, a bit soapy; bitterness from the roasted malts.
Confusing, artificial, rather unpleasant.

Blackish beer with ruby relfexes, big tanned head. Aroma: Some chocolate, hint of coffe, at the beginning, minimal fruity esters> taste: Hint of sweet, some light sour, balanced bitter. Very well balanced beer. Hint of cocoa, and something... different. I quess thats from the oysters. Like salty. Palate: light to medium body as well as saturation, smooth, dry. Overall: nice drinkability, but average stout.

impuritylaw (57) - Freibierg, GERMANY - APR 7, 2016
Malty, roasty, slightly smokey aroma and something like sweetish baker’s yeast that could be the oysters. Same special component in taste again, with roasty, malty, bitter notes. Long bitter finish. Interesting aroma and taste at a quite low abv.

Aromat kawowy, karmelowy, słodkawy. Kolor brunatny, piana niska, ładnie zbita. W smaku nieco palonych słodów, słodkawe z ostrawym akcentem. Goryczka niska nieco zalegająca.

Almost black, clear, small head. Not very pleasant aroma; bit caramel and roasty and someting that i couldnt name, probably those oysters. Taste: dry, breadish, roasty, bit salty, some tartness. Plus for flavour, minus for aroma.

Black colour, big beige head and decent lacing. Moderate aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and licorice with hint of seasalt note (maybe oyster?). Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, light sour and minimal salty. Finish is short. Medium carbonation. Low to medium body (quite watery). Decent stout with perciptible salty note.
