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.

Not bad, I felt a little queasy after a few pints of it though. Nice for the occasional sup.

Black. Off-white head. Sticks around. Leaves the typical amount of lacing for a real stout. The head was still forming for minutes after the glass was dropped off at our table. Roasty aroma. Taste is similar except that there is a huge spiciness reminiscent of heather. Strange. Not bad, but I would pass next time.

Definitely interesting. Dark brown, almost black, beer with a decent, brown head. Aromas of mild chocolate/coffee and something odd. Tastes of smoked notes, bittersweet chocolate, dark coffee, some herbal hops, a bit of salt, and something odd. Sweet aftertaste, oily mouth feel. A bit watery too. I’m going to go ahead and say that the "something odd" flavors are the oysters used in the brewing process. I’m a pretty smart guy.

Lowe1983 (1363) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and a hint of the oysters. Interesting flavor. The oysters are present up front but finishes with the roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. Not sure if I could drink much of this.

DuffMan (7037) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
On tap @ Radio Maria. Deep mahogany with a thin beige head. Light roast aroma and flavour, subtle sweetness. Nothing briny or brothy, and a tad thin. It was fine, just a bit simple.

jnkor (316) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Pours with a small off white head. Color is slightly red. Aroma is malty sweet. Taste is bitter and a bit acrid, but still has a sweetness to it. Finish is a bit strong.

pours hazy dark brown-red tint with a nice creamy light beige head, some retention. dark carmale malts, brown sugar, off-esters, pepsi-like, candy, licorice. light body - watery mouthfeel, average to soft carbonation, decent grassy-lightly resinous medium long goldings finish. interesting... but meh.

330 ml. bottle. Pours brown with a decent biege head. Aroma of malt, bread, and fruit. Taste is roasted malt, grain, chocolate, and smoke. Not able to pick out any oysters. Interesting.

Pours near black with minimal head. Aroma of smoked maple malts. Taste is roasted with coffee notes. Dark and smokey. Not entirely my cup of tea. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
