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.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown-orange color with a large tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and some briney saltiness. The flavor is roasted malt with some hop bitterness. I also get some chocolate and some salt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(330ml bottle) Pours a clear mahogany body with a tall dense beige head. Aroma of nuts, some spruce, caramel, maple, roasted grain, and leather. Flavor of roasted malt, earth, subtle saltiness, herbs, and some coffee.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2012 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (roasted grain, caramel, milk chocolate), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with light notes of fennel bulb, seaweed. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Easy-going and quaffable with an interesting aroma.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2010
On tap. Dark brown - close to black - with a reddish hue and a dense, lacing and creamy beige head with good retention. The nose is surprisingly subdued, perhaps a little roast and a vague whiff of butter. Light body, low carbonation, soft mouthfeel, hard roasted malts and a vague spicy touch - from the oysters? Fairly bitter finish - from both hops and malts. 281110

hopscotch (10180) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Draft... Pours nearly black with a small, negligible - but stubborn - white head that hangs on by a thread for a good while. The nose furnishes interesting notes of dark chocolate, minerals and worn canvas. Light to medium-bodied with biting carbonation. Medium roasted bitterness, light mocha and very low sweetness. Crisp, burnt, mostly bitter, bone-dry finish.

yngwie (15606) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2011
On tap at The Wharf. A clear dark brown to black body is topped by a creamy beige head that leaves lacings. The aroma has dried fruits, coffee-ish roasted malts, some buttery notes and caramel. It’s medium bodied, smooth and quite dry. The flavor has coffee, butter, some notes of dried fruits, a pleasant bitterness and a hint of chocolate. Bitter finish, both of the hoppy and the roasted kind. Pleasant, nothing more. 101204

jesperhammer (3619) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2011
29-MAR-2011, bottle @Papsø tasting. Brown with light brown head. Quite spicey. A bit on the belgian side for a stout. All the roasted elements are there, but on top of that a strange spicey note. Is that really oyster?
