Thick, black beer with a mid-sized head. Flavor and aroma are full of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. Iím not picking up on the oyster flavors myself, but then Iíve never eaten an oyster so donít know what Iím looking for. But the seafoody-aspect some raters are mentioning just isnít there for me. This tastes like a fairly decent, middle of the road stout. Nothing wrong with that.

Bottle shared. Pours near black with dark biege head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, fudge, toffee, cocoa and light coffee. Flavour is over moderate sweet and bitter. All of the aroma aspects come out in the palate with raisins, overripe red fruit and oyster saltiness on the side. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Fantastic for the low ABV.

Bomber courtesy of and shared with Kermis, thanks. Thin tan head. Clear black pour. Smooth chocolatey finish. Lovely

arminjewell (5993) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pour out 22 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of roast, coffee, dark chocolate, some hints of slight salty roasty notes as well, eh. Taste is a mix of coffee, roast, chocolate, hints of earthy slight nutty notes, hints of dark fruit, finishing fairly bitter. Not bad, pretty balanced, but the flavors are fairly tame.

Bottle @ home, thanks to readbaron for sending this! Pours a black appearance with a dark brown head. The oyster presence is definitely noticeable in the nose with salty / earthy / mussel notes. Thereís also a fair amount of anise, light spice, and some roast. Flavor is a bit twangy, almost tart-like flavor. A bunch of black licorice in the mouth along with roast. Body is a bit thin. Finishes with earth, chocolate, and a bit of coffee. Pretty solid but Iím really not a huge fan of Oyster Stouts to be honest.

22 ounce bottle. Thanks Keith! Pours a very dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and fruit. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, and soy. Pretty good considering.

DialSquare (2498) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle shared at Proof. Blackish pour. Salty aroma. Tastes are sweet malt, coffee, brine, hint of smoke. Iíve liked most oyster stouts Iíve tried - must be something with salty vibe. Would like to try this again. 7.6

mverity (263) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle share at Proof. Dark black with a great creamy tan head that lasts pretty well. Smoky and toasty malt aroma. Smoky-malty-chocolate flavor. Not much of the hint of salty-brine I typically see in oyster stouts. Great creamy mouthfeel with nice aftertaste of silty chocolate. Creamy nitro-like carbonation and thick viscous body.

jbruner (2135) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Pours a thick black from the bottle with nice tan brown head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of roasted malt, a hint of mineral in the middle, and some chocolate. Taste follows, more chocolate than mineral. Sweet and nice, but not crazy oyster.

Nice beer with solid roasty backbone and a nice mineral rich salty sweetness hidden in there. Really easy to drink and just full of tons of roasty flavor.

22 oz. bottle shared by jmborggren (April 2012). Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, chocolate, soy, mildly briny character, some earthy bitterness to the finish. This was not bad, but is a style that needs to be done really well to pull off.
