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.

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!

Bottle... Poured dark black with a a thick forming, khaki/off-white head. Some roast and a hint of saltiness. Nice body, flavorful. Toasted grains and a hint of hazelnuts. Dark cocoa, coffee, and a smooth, clean finish. Like most oyster stouts that I have had, the oyster isn’t overpowering.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle thanks to bauermj. Deep brown-black pour with huge, rocky tan head. Nose of cocoa, roasted malt, sweet soy sauce, and black olive. Flavor is a dry, acidic roast that is a little gamey on the tailend. Residual acidic roast. Somewhat slick mouthfeel. Pretty sub-par, in my opinion. Oyster components are detracting rather than adding complexity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Maria’s. Pours a deep black with a tannish creamy head. Lightly sweet with a hit of roast. Grassy hops, floral with a hint of cocoa as well. On tasting, there is a noted sweetness with a drying roast quality. Lots of floral hops lend a grassy note. Creamy mouthfeel with a solid malty quality. Pretty solid, if non-descript, stout. Not too shabby.

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.
