If it werenít for the oysters, this would be a very thin and uninspired stout. There is an interesting hint of saltiness on top of a very lightly roasted malt backbone. Passable.

Cask at the Bier Abbey. Pours thin and dark, very faint briney aroma. Taste is thin burnt malt, very little else going on.

Clean black pour with large tan head.
Aroma is very bold but balanced, coffee and cocoa notes are present
Flavor is also very bold but well balanced, a light saltiness, heavy cocoa notes.
Very nice beer, Iíve become a big fan of these Oyster stout releases

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Another disappointment from the strangely intriguing title of "Oyster" Stout. Like every other oyster stout Iíve had, this just tastes like a good dry stout with the faintest hint of what might be sea brine. Dark, smooth and dry but I want some funky underwater flavors on my palate.
