Bottle... Poured dark black with a a thick forming, khaki/off-white head. Some roast and a hint of saltiness. Nice body, flavorful. Toasted grains and a hint of hazelnuts. Dark cocoa, coffee, and a smooth, clean finish. Like most oyster stouts that I have had, the oyster isn’t overpowering.

Tap at DLD12. Coffee, chocolate, and light seaweed/ocean aroma. Black color with minimal head. Sweet chocolate malt flavor with a light herbal hops finish. Smooth as silk.

Bottle thanks to bauermj. Deep brown-black pour with huge, rocky tan head. Nose of cocoa, roasted malt, sweet soy sauce, and black olive. Flavor is a dry, acidic roast that is a little gamey on the tailend. Residual acidic roast. Somewhat slick mouthfeel. Pretty sub-par, in my opinion. Oyster components are detracting rather than adding complexity.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle from Maria’s. Pours a deep black with a tannish creamy head. Lightly sweet with a hit of roast. Grassy hops, floral with a hint of cocoa as well. On tasting, there is a noted sweetness with a drying roast quality. Lots of floral hops lend a grassy note. Creamy mouthfeel with a solid malty quality. Pretty solid, if non-descript, stout. Not too shabby.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2012 Auction winner. Drank with Stegosaurus. I admit, Iwas worried about a beer made with oyster sauce, but this beer was solid. A nice blend of chocolate, roast, earth and nut. A bitter dry roasted flavor. Nice work Floyd’s.

Draft at DLD ’12. Pours a deep, dark, mostly opaque brown color with a small, lasting beige head. Very smooth and roasty throughout- dry grains, nuts, toast, dark chocolate, and a little bit of saltiness. Light-medium bodied, smooth, roasty, and dry. Moderate carbonation. Well done oyster stout.

On tap friday night at the brewpub pre-DLD ’12.
I’ve never had an oyster stout before trying this one. It looked great, with a dark brown body and a thick tan head that lasted forever. The aroma was dry with a subtle nutty roastiness . The flavor contained heavily roasted malts, chocolate, and a dry nutty mineral quality as well. There wasn’t as much oyster/brine in there as I expected, which is I suppose is a good thing. A smooth, balanced, well done stout.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2012
On tap at DLD ’12. Pours a black body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is smooth dark chocolates with a nice sweetness and a good amount of roasts. Some earth, nuts, and a touch of salted caramel. Flavor is similar. Lots of roasts with a light coffee, smooth and rich chocolates, and earth. Another hint of salted caramel and some nuts as this finishes dry, earthy, roasty, and moderately bitter with a light chocolate sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really flavorful, solid stout. Lots of roasts, chocolate, and earth all balanced nicely while remaining very easy drinking. Good one.

Tap at Dark Lord Day. Roasted coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit aroma. black with a small tan head. Coffee malt, ash, lightly spicy dark fruit flavor. Full smooth body. Odd that I was getting dark fruit when none of the others in my party could taste it.
