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.

I love Osyters and stouts so this was a good mix. Bomber from FFF, Brown-black,and beige head. Smooth, sweet chocolate coffee aroma. Over all this was tasty and would enjoy again.CHEERS!

On tap at the brew pub. Pours very deep brown/black - little-to-no head but good lacing. Roasted malt is primarily the aroma. Canít say that I can really make out the oyster sauce - either I donít know the flavor that well or the roastiness overpowers the other flavors. A bit thin with the mouthfeel and doesnít 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 canít 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.

Bomber pours dark brown/black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, and slightly nutty. Taste has a sweet and saltiness that is at first a little puckering, chocolate, salty caramel, sweet plum, and roasted malts. Yum!
