Bomber from the brewery, hand delivered by Steve - who continues to be most generous! Pours inky black with a root beer float head, leaving some lacing and consistent tiny bubbling as the glass gets emptier. Aroma has dark chocolate, molasses and an earthiness. The combination has a bit of an off-putting tang to it. Taste delivers semi-sweet chocolate, some dark fruit, roasted malts and a saltiness. Not too thick. The sweetness, bitterness and saltiness blends interestingly, and atypically for a beer. Finishes bittersweet with a salt residue, and with some length. Not sure exactly where they were aiming on this one. I liked Baume, HA’s stout, quite a bit, and love Floyds’ stuff, but either they or I missed a bit on this one.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 Bottle from the brewery. Second time I tried, first was at DLD, in a plastic cup not impressed, much better out of the bottle. Pitch black with a nice tan head that quickly goes away and leaves just a tiny ring around the glass. I cant quite figure out what the aroma is, has some stout and hops smells. Also has what smells like oak aged stout qualities. Taste has chocolate and coffee and nice hops to it. A bit more hops that typical for a stout, but on par with some of the other floyds stouts/porters. Without being told I might have guessed black IPA.

BigBang (299) - Indiana, USA - MAY 23, 2012
On tap at the brew pub. Pours very deep brown/black - little-to-no head but good lacing. Roasted malt is primarily the aroma. Can’t say that I can really make out the oyster sauce - either I don’t know the flavor that well or the roastiness overpowers the other flavors. A bit thin with the mouthfeel and doesn’t really linger. Interesting but not remarkable.

This is the most "oyster-ish" oyster stout I have ever come across. The dominant and singular note of this beer. If what you are looking for then seek this out. This beer should be very polarizing, you like it or hate it. There is a spiciness here that I can’t quite place...is it all oysters? Or something else?

Dark pour. Nice lacing. Beer is a bit sweet. Lots of grain and a little hay. Ok mouth. Taste is full of chocolate malt. This went really well with half a dozen oysters.

22oz bomber from FFF. Opaque brown-black, patchy beige head. Smooth, sweet chocolate coffee aroma. On the fuller side of medium bodied, quite sessionable and delicious. Almost smoky, in a chocolate covered way. Delicate cookie dough tones, subdued coffee. Excellent.
