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.

La miglior birra assaggiata in Irlanda....ottima questa Oyster Stout, in cui si avverte il classico salmastro dato dalle ostriche senza diventare troppo invadente...grande equilibrio...veramente ben fatta

Almost black, treacley colour topped with creamy head. Flavour is dominated by the salty oyster taste and some roasted malt. Very rich in flavour and texture and leaves an aromatic toasty aftertaste. Certainly not a session beer but a perfect way to round off a night.

Draught. Clear very deep dark red-brown colour. Beautiful creamy beige steady light brown head, which lasts for a long time and leaves a very nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke and coffee. Good mouthfeel. Pleasant roasted maltiness in the flavour with some smoked turf, coffee, and a pleasant soft bitterness. Dry roasty bit smoky finish. Yum!

bottle from papago consumed 7/13/10... pours a deep dark reddish brown shade of black capped by a beige head. it smells of chocolate, roast, caramel, grass, vanilla, smoky wood and a briny note akin to sea kelp. the flavor is fo’ sho’ briny, kelpy, saline and a bit bitter iodine on the finish. in between are notes of all the characteristics from the aroma with a bit of chalkiness, milky oyster texture and phlegmy coating. medium bodied, soft, smooth and slick yet crisp and terribly drinkable.8/4/8/4/16/4.0

Black color with extra thick white head. Not much of an aroma. Peaty, roasted maltiness and cola. Very creamy smooth texture.Not tasting any oysters but I guess that’s not a bad thing.

Flavor on this was great for a 5% stout. Nice full bodied flavor and aroma goes down smooth, don’t know about the oysters but this brew has some character. Had this after a Guinness and it blew the Guinness away. under-appreciated..

Deep brown with a light beige head. The aroma was smokey, roasty; I looked for a distinct oyster aroma, but found it hard to identify. The flavor seemed very slightly bitter accompanied by a salty flavor. It was medium bodied and kind of creamy. I can now say that I’ve had a beer brewed with oysters, which is worth something.

bottle from whole foods bowery. pours black with a decent tan head. great nose, can definitely pick up the oysters. good taste too, the roasty flavors of a stout give way to the salty, earthy flavor of the oysters. Oysters could come through a little stronger, but it’s definitely there. One of my favorite styles, and this beer doesn’t disappoint.
