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.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - JUN 1, 2012
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.

Pours a solid black with a tan head and lacing, it has a mild aroma of dark malt and some coffee and toast. The flavor is mostly dark malt and coffee up front with a smooth finish and a slightly salty/earthy background that must be the oysters. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

laiti (4941) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2014
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 16.02.2015
Aroma is a bit sweet with some roastiness, cocoa and toffee. Flavour is slightly sour with cocoa, some hay, English hops, roastiness, cold coffee and toffee. Also some truffles. Finishes with mellow tartness. I was told that this is what oyster stouts used to be – quite close to English or Irish stouts this still is, the slight sourness makes the difference I think.

tompete (197) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
On tap at the wharf. Dark almost opaque brown, light red edges and a beige head. Aroma of toffee, malt and some coffee. Flavour of dry malts and something secretly sweet. Body is thin to medium. Finish is very smooth and balanced.

jandd1983 (2085) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 9, 2014
It poured a brown color with a beige head. The aroma was of malts, breadiness and some fruits. The taste was of roasted malts, grains, chocolate, some hint of oyster juice and smoke. Very different.

Marduk (2009) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2014
330ml bottle. Deep copper color. Tiny to almost no head. Sweet, caramel, faint raisins in aroma. Caramel, mild roast, watery, minerals in taste. Quite bland, but not entirely undrinkable.

TimE (2977) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 6, 2014
med dark brown color. Slightly briny, thin body, lingering oyster and slightly roasty notes. Very boring and not a real stout.

AdiBeer (582) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Aroma: roasted malts and something I can’t quite describe - maybe the oysters? Appearance: black with long lasting creamy small head. Taste: light sweet and bitter. Palate: sweets continue at first the the bitters start to dominate, medium to long dry finish. Overall: OK Oyster Stout, maybe a bit in the light side. Pint at the Porterhouse Covent Garden, London.

Smells oily and kind of fishy. Was in bottle. Strong spicy taste with dry oyster palate.

martjoobolut (336) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 19, 2014
BB 16.02.15, 330ml bottle. Pours black with ruby highlights. The head is light tan and disappears quickly. Aroma is mild caramel, toasty, slight sweetness, some fruits maybe. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, slight sweetness. Finish is some dark chocolate bitterness and salt. Overall: nice light beer would go really nice with some oysters.

thirstyrabbit (998) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 18, 2014
Small bottle with that evil finger destroyer cap that splits into shards with razor sharp edges. However, the beer itself is not bad. Has a dark brown body with a medium head. Smooth roasty aroma with some black mud and very light vinous notes. Sweet roasty taste with light coffee, cola and berries. Juicy finish.
