COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An English sweet stout made with pale and dark English malts, English noble hops and 150 whole oysters -- shell and all. The oysters are thrown into the brew kettle during the boil stage of the brewing process, adding calcium to the wort. The result is a passionately smooth stout.

Dark brown-black body, medium sized dark tan head, decent lacing. Roast, chocolate, a touch of coffee and earth. Medium to full bodied, smooth carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, dry earthy finish. Not incredibly complex, but solid nevertheless.

Enjoyable oyster stout that I had the pleasure of having on nitro. Silky smooth, with roastiness from the chocolate malts.

This one poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of chocolate, caramel, and cola. Flavor was coloa and chocolate, medium roast, a tad thin, but not terrible.

Rich and dark and very creamy. I had it on nitro and it was velocity smooth. Maybe it is all in my mind, but I detected some salty faint notes. Really a lovely brew.

Draft on nitro at Frisco Taphouse in Columbia, MD. Served in a pint glass, very dark brown color with dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt sweetness, chocolate, light coffee and a slight fruity/mineral note. Taste notes of dark chocolate, espresso, some smokiness and earthiness. Heavy body, low carbonation(nitro), creamy, rich, thick, smooth with dry roast finish. Not sure if usually sold nitro but I thought this was pretty solid oyster stout.

3/15/13 happy hour drat @ silk city before jukebox the ghost. Got better as it got warmer. Dark black color with tan head. Maybe I had the oyster flavor in my mind because I thought I detected a slight saltiness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an opaque black with ruby edges. Two fingers of creamy tan head. Sweet roasted malts in the aroma with some caramel and that papery/diacetyl character I get in Dry Stouts. Some burnt sugar and caramel in the flavor with a touch of roasted grain. Medium full bodied, nitro? 6/3/6/16

Pint pour at Andy’s Corner Bar. Very dark with inch head that disapates quickly. Almost no aroma and a very mild taste.
