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.

Bottle. Good foam. Not dark enough for a stout. Very nice taste. A little mettalic in the aftertaste. An ok stout.

Echon (386) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2016
Black. Roasted barley, caramel malt and liquorice in the aroma. Roasted malty flavour, with some spice and a speciel note which I assume comes from the oysters. Light sweetness and a bitter and roasted finish. Medium body. Overall, a decent stout, but nothing more than that. The taste is a bit odd.

mateuszk (2156) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown in colour, brown head. Aroma of chocolate, sweet with touch of coffee and fruits. In taste lightly sweet, with chocolate and roasted coffee, slightly sour from roasted malts. Light bodied, bit watery, maybe lightly salty in finish. Nice, drinkable stout.

Aragh (229) - POLAND - JUN 1, 2016
Piana gęsta, wysoka, utrzymująca się, zdobi szkło. Kolor brunatny. Zapach słodki, czekoladowy, jednka w smaku trochę bardziej wytrawne niż słodkie. Przede wszystkim jest znaczna kawowa kwaśność, trochę kawowej goryczy i tylko nikła nuta czekolady. Jak na styl dość wysoko nasycone. Trochę wodniste z lekkim posmakiem umami, zapewne od ostryg.

Draft at Porterhouse, Covent Gardens. Dark brown with a thick, tan head. Lace coats the glass. Bitter coffee and malt. A bit of a smoked sea salt type of note comes through as well. Fairly thick and creamy, nice overall mouthfeel.

JPDIPSO (5667) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Dark brown color with a tall airy light tan head. Briny roasted malt aromas. Somehow I feel I am smelling a light stout while sitting dockside. Quite light in feel. Light roasted malt, molasses, and mild smoked salty meat. Easy to drink, yet fairly complex. A light nearly quenching type stout. 3/10
