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.

330 ml bottle from Country Club. Nose of chocolate, coffee, and oats. Black with a big, tiny bubbled, glass lacing tan head. Flavor is coffee and oatmeal with a nice contrasting bitterness and a hint of molasses. Great Irish stout

There’s something interesting and mysterious about the whole oyster thing. Regardless, this is a mighty fine stout.

Koskela (290) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Smells like murphys stout exactly. The color is dark. No head retention....at all. Tastes very similar to murphys but carbonated. Heavy on coffee taste and bitter dry coffee taste at the end. A slight sweetness exists but goes away quickly. I was surprized i tought i was gonna taste oyeters but if they exist it would be in the aftertaste but hard to pinpoint. Its a light bodied stout i was also surprised. It has medium carb.

This glass of draft beer came from the Porterhouse brewpub across the street from Trinity College In the glass it was black but when held up to the light showed to be a dark garnet red. Big tan head. Really thick and sticky lacing. Nose of roasted malts. Bold body and a really creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is roasted malts, and while i could not detect oysters, there is something unique in the flavor. Nice bitter finish. Really good beer. Loved this one.

On tap at the Pianeta Birra, Rimini, Italy.
The best beer I’ve tried on Pianeta Birra Rimini. Pours a nice opaque dark ruby color with a creamy pale brown head that stands forever. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee with a salty oyster undertone. Lots of roasty, smoky and salty notes in the finish and aftertaste. Very smooth.

very dark brown almost black. Drank from a 12 oz. It actually tastes really good. Lightly salty and smoked flavors comes through, Almost reminds me of a bacon stout but not a distinct bacon flavor.

Bottle, Brown Derby, Springfield MO. Dark pour with ruby highlights, sand colored sticky head. Toasty milk chocolate aroma, warm porridge, and a delicious tobacco depth. Knowing it has oysters I’m tempted to call it briney...but not sure if that is actually there. It does have some kind of mysterious extra something though, and man it is nice. Ocean breeze? Fresh plowed earth? Descriptors fail: I like it. Flavor much less elusive. A soft nutty chocolate roast, lactose sweetness, a little burned viney bitterness in the finish. Tastes both a little wild and very carefully crafted. Excellent.
