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.

Not a bad stout, a bit unusual at first but then you get used to it, it has a unique aroma and taste, possibly because of the Oysters. I donít think Iíd drink too many in the one sitting but certainly I like it before a meal.

The stout is smooth, first you taste the flaked barley, then the more complex flavor as it warms up a little. Try it with their oysters if you are in Dublin!

Reddish black pint with a half-inch of white foam, just like each of the other stouts on tap at Porterhouse. Chocolate malts and a tangy oystery brine scent drift up from this brew. A little salty on the flavor, chewy texture, and a dry, bitter finish -- best part of this stout.

Deep black with a huge nitro white lacing head. Light aromas, chocolatey, fruitier than any stout Iíve ever had. Some coffee. Too watery and light flavoured. Unimpressive.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Nice roasted aroma. Had a decent head. The flavor is hard to describe except to say in that the obvious that it gave it an oyster flavor! Was also bitter and had a dry finish. Anyway it tasted pretty good which is the most important thing.

@ Charlies. Pours dark nearly black with a red hew and a lovely thick creamy white head and lacings. Caramel, spices and a vague roasted note. Medium and smooth palate. Good.

11.2oz bottle. claims 5.2% how excited am i to try my first oyster stout?? words cannot express. the beer pours a clear deep brown under a creamy light beige head. a pleasant but mild cocoa powdery aroma. nothing suggests oyster yet. the flavor is a tad bit salty and bitter. tonic water notes. not as robust as i was expecting which is ok. light body with medium carbonation. the only oyster stout iíve had so i donít have anything to compare it to. it is much different than the heavy bodied, sweet, roasty stouts though. overall, it was a different take on one of my favorite styles and even though my rating is pretty average, i wouldnít mind drinking this again. fun to drink.

11.2 oz bottle. Slightly briny nose, roasted malts with hints of chocolate and vanilla. Pours very dark brown with reddish hues when held to a light. Roasted malts, with briny hints, anise notes with bitter chocolate, sharp and dry. Not bad. I want more oyster brininess!

Black pour. Slightly briny, roasted grain aroma. Taste is dark roasted grain, dry pretty standard.

330ml bottle, with a crazy grenade pin pop top cap. The pour yields a dark but slightly translucent chestnut to mahogany colored body. A head of khaki tinted froth is initially thick, but it quickly fades to a thin, bubbly, lasting film. Rocky, jagged flares of sheet lacing jut out from the surface, clinging hard to the glass. The nose is pretty simple, showing powdery dark cocoa, caramel sweetness, mild anise spiciness, and some staunch barley roast. A waft of peppery, earhen hops lends a sharpness and aromatic balance. Flavors are quite dry and roasty, based again in bittersweet dry cocoa and darkly toasted caramel. The yeast profile is quite dry and spicy, and thereís a hint of acidity coming from somewhere. I also picked up some cola and maybe a slight hint of smoke. On the tongue, a lively, fizzy carbonation disburses the dry roastiness. The body is on the lighter side for a stout, as thereís little residual sugar to coat the mouth. Overall, itís a decent dry stout, but itís really nothing special.
