bottle from tom10101, thanks! pours very dark brown with a nice beige head, some retention and lacing. mushrooms, soy, slightly burnt malts, big grassy-resinous hops, some belgiumness (!). average to soft carbonation, slightly lacking body. some depth, but... still, not that great.

Bottle (22 oz). Traded by dresden, thanks Steve! Dark brown with a small head and some lacing. Weird but interesting aroma of mushrooms, smoke, dust and caramel. Taste is salty with smokey notes and hints of mushrooms. Mouthfeel is thin and watery, even for a stout. Except for the salty taste, I would have thought this is more a mushroom stout than an oyster stout. I didn’t find this beer particularly good but it was quite fun to drink (that explain the high "overall" rating). A must-try at least once.

Pours dark black with a big tan head. Nose is briney, salt, coffee, nuts and light chocolate. Taste is sweet but not for long. Bitter and saltiness join in before the middle and carry through to the finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and oily, body is heavy and finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber picked up at Dark Lord Day 2012. Pours a complete opaque colour. Head is tan, lots of drippy spots of lace. Nose is sweet malt, and what reminds me of a Allan’s chocolate bunnies. Tastes quite chocolate malt, a little bit salty. Really different from the oyster stouts i’ve had. Delicious.

22 oz. bottle served in a Hofbrauhaus Munchen tulip . A: Pours a dark black color with dark brown edges. A nice khaki head forms on the pour. It recedes quickly to a thick collar that leaves some splotchy sheets of lace left down the glass. S: Some solid chocolaty aspects to it up front with some lightly toasted malts. There is a little brine in there which I can attribute to the saltiness of the oyster shells. T: A large briny flavor sticks throughout each sip. There is some chocolate, dark fruits and lightly toasted grain flavors creating the body of the beer. M: Medium to thin bodied with a medium carbonation level and s light salty finish. O: A good take on the style, but I wish I got more roasted malt flavors and some sweet chocolate notes to compliment the salty flavors from the oyster shells. An imperial version might be the key here to grab more flavors out of the different elements and create more body as it was a tad thin for me. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-06-2012

A - Pours a dark brown-black color with a finger of frothy khaki-chocolate colored head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, coffee, oysters, a bit of dark fruit, and some molasses. T - Starts off with some roasted chocolate malts with some earthy minerals and some dark fruit. Through the middle, some coffee comes through with some more oyster flavor and some molasses. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, dark fruit, mineral oyster flavor, coffee, and a touch of lactose sweetness. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and mineraly finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice oyster stout with good overall balance and complexity without getting too big.

Thanks to the kind soul that shared this at a recent Tampa Crew Tasting. Pours a medium brown with an off-tan head. Nose is earth, some dry cocoa, and some roasted malts. Flavor follows. Light to medium in body and earthy all over.

Bottle shared by JCB. Cheers, Jason. Very dark brown pour with a silky lighter brown head. Nose is nutty, roasty, fruity. Taste adds a bit of salty and earthy sweetness. Silky palate. Unique. Just a stunner all around.

This was a nice stout. Aroma is roast and smoky with a touch of mineral qualities to it. Flavor is the same with a nice touch of smoke and roast with a light saltiness and cocoa. Good stuff.

What a nice and dry stout this one was. Lots of cocoa and yeast in the nose here. The taste is a tad smoky with more cocoa, dry leaves and earthy. Finishes like a rich porter and enjoyably so.
