On tap at The Porterhouse, Covent Garden 29 Apr 08. Dark brown - almost black colored with a tanned creamy head.Strong aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Surprisingly easy to drink with a pleasant dry bitterness kicking in.

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.

Porterhouse in Dublin - pitch black and a wee bit tan head. Smell somewhat malty. At first the aroma develops maltiness followed by saltiness which combined is well balanced and reminds you instantly of oysters! Pretty good stuff. Palate is a bit thin and unfortunately fading quickly away, wished for a bit more lingering oyster. Nonetheless, really good pint!

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

First time I tasted this I loved it straight away. Seemed like your average stout but there was something sweeter on the finish. Totally unidentifiable but I can only assume it was the oysters. Great bottle of beer.

Aromes dolços de malta, llaminera, també amb un petit toc de salnitre. En boca el salnitre es fa més evident sembla com a pipes, també s’aprecia clarament sabors torrats de regalèssia i cafè. Bona cervesa.
