PhillyCraft (2855) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle split with Allen, pours a light bodied purple with thin tan head. Aromas and taste are hoppy, smokey, and filled with chocolate, brown sugar, coffee, and salty shells. Wish it was a little fuller but it was refreshing and drinkable this light.

22 oz bottle from Dunt. Very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is dominated by dark roasted coffee and malt with some chocolate too, no oyster aroma. Flavor is dry black malt, bitter coffee and a light salty brine in the finish. Medium body with a dry mouth feel. This is a good beer but hoped the brine and oyster would come through a bit more.

michaelinwa (561) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Black with thick lasting head and mild aroma of sweet roasted malt. Flavor is mild to moderate roasted malt with a hint of coffee. Light complexity. Finishes with a mild lingering bitterness. Not bad, not distinctive.

Damico (2356) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Pours dark unclear coffee in color with a smaller tan head. The aroma is light oyster brine on light roasted malts. The flavor of a roasted malt stout with light bitter hops at the end, quite smooth on a perfect body for the style.

sharkweek (99) - Statesboro, Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Pours very black with a good two fingers of khaki head. Looks very nice. The aroma has some chocolate and a tinge of shellfish. The taste is dark chocolate and coffee. There is no overwhelming bitterness or sweetness. This beer works perfectly. The flavors are very nicely balanced and I recommend this to any stout lover.

wnoble (1214) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Pours black with brown head. Nose is roasted malts coffee and chocolate. No oyster in the aroma. Flavor maybe lends some oyster but very little just adds some complexity to the roast and sweet malt and smoke. Dry finish. fully body. bitter finish.

From a bottle poured a dark brown color with almost no mead. Light sweet malty toasted flavor with a quick finish.

radagast83 (4141) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Split a 22oz bottle in half. Poured a solid black color, with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, touch of sweet coffee notes, with a touch of light salt brine notes. Palate is pretty smooth, a touch of creaminess. Flavor is coffee, roasted malts, interesting.

bookman10 (588) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Thick, black beer with a mid-sized head. Flavor and aroma are full of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. I’m not picking up on the oyster flavors myself, but then I’ve never eaten an oyster so don’t know what I’m looking for. But the seafoody-aspect some raters are mentioning just isn’t there for me. This tastes like a fairly decent, middle of the road stout. Nothing wrong with that.
