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.

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.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Very deep brown pour, capped by a creamy mocha colored head. Roast, toast, cocoa, very light mineral/brine, and earthy bark in the aroma. A dose of coffee comes through in the taste, and there is a nice umami quality to the flavor, as befits any respectable oyster stout. Medium body, wonderfully creamy, soft carb, with a nice touch of bitterness in the roasty finish. Tinge of green olive as it warms. Better at a cooler temperature. A solid oyster stout for sure, and nicely done at 5.6%. The nose is great; and even though the flavor doesn’t completely pop or evolve on the palate like some of my favorites ... I’d love to enjoy this again, as I am partial to this style.

daknole (8540) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2012
Dark brown pour, tan head. Roasty and toast aroma, some light smoke, very light coffee. Flavor is roasty with a bit of smoke, no real note of the brine/oysters that Ive had in past oyster stouts. Still a very quaffable brew.

Bottle shared by Andrew. Dark black pour, a little lasting carbonation and an aroma of a little chocolate. Flavor is that of a decent standard porter, light chocolate, peat, sweet and lightly dry on the finish. I’d definitely buy this if it was priced right.

22 oz. bomber from the brewery. Dark brown near black pour with a small tan head that splotches against the glass. Aroma of roasty malts, chocolate, brownies, and lots of earth tones. Slightly salty. Flavor is full of roasted malts, chocolate and mild coffee. Slight oyster and brine notes, a bit on the salty side. Mild bitterness. Rich, creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation. Finishes earthy and minerally. Very unique collaboration from my two favorite breweries.
