COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with fresh oyster. A smooth drinking aromatic stout with a discernible but unidentifiable aromatic aspect. Not suitable for vegetarians.

Fresh oysters added during the brewing process, lend a discernible yet unidentifiable note.

Jamedra (639) - Hostivice, - JUN 29, 2013
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma připomíná jemnou vanilkovou kávu s banánovými tóny. Pěna je krémová, hnědá, nízká a jemná bohužel rychle mizící. Barva samotného piva je tmavě černá téměř neprůsvitná jen lehce jsou znát odstíny tmavě rudé. Chuťově má pivo lehký kávový základ a znatelný banánový okraj, celkově je sladšího rázu ale je zároveň i silně hořké.

Crystal dark amber, tan head. Aroma is simple: coffee, liquorice. Creamy, round, full, bitter. Medium finish. After-taste reveals the oysters.

Erasmus_ro (1690) - Alabama, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown, black, with a wooden tinge. Small, beige head. Aroma is roast, some spicy liquorice, earthy sour, dark fruit. Maybe the oysters? Taste is roast, some coffee, the same dark fruit, sour, earthiness. Light with decent carbonation. Very drinkable.

mcberko (8670) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
On tap at The Porterhouse, pours a near black with a red tinge and a small tan head. Nose is pretty restrained, with light oats and toasted malt. Flavour is quite restrained as well, with oats and just a hint of the oysters. Smooth on the palate, dry and creamy. Decent but nothing special.

Gangstergafje (152) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2015
Almost black color, but when seen with a lift behind it a ruby red color can be distinguished. On top of the beer there is s creamy white foam head. The beer looks perfect. The smell is nice, you can smell the roster hops. The taste is also delicious. There are the aromas of perfectly roasted hops and some chocolate tones. After a few sips the smell unveils its hoppy notes. It is brewery perfection.

Nydt i pint, fra flaske. MHT 23-09-15. Moderat maltduft med tydelig kaffe, brćndte noter, mřrkt chokolade og lakrids, ogsĺ lidt karamelsřdme og dertil nogen vanilje. Humlen er ogsĺ moderat med duft af citrus og appelsin. Fin cremet, lettere brusende gennemsnitlig rĺhvid skumkrone, som er mest aftagende og blonderne er rimelige. Kroppen er dunkel og farven er nćsten sort. Smagen er startende med let sřdme i form af brunt sukker, karamel og dertil moderat bitterhed ved smag af citrus. Afslutningsvis er den moderat sřd og stadig moderat bitter med en smule surhed. Smagsvarigheden er gennemsnitlig. Kroppen er let til medium og teksturen er třr med blřd kulsyre. Afslutningsvis noget saltet. Lćkker traditionel řsters stout!

SinH4 (729) - SWITZERLAND - APR 17, 2015
Great black color with tan head. Dry malts, dark fruits in the aroma. Taste is rich for the ABV, good and not watery at all. Very nice bitterness in the end, a bit of salt even. Good aftertaste. I am impressed.

On tap at Porterhouse Central. Pour is close to black with a very small white head. Aroma and flavor of slight fruit, roasted malt, semi-sweet chocolate, and a bit of salt. Finish is a bit sweet, but thin.
