11/8/17. 12oz can from Whole Foods, HHI. WHY DOES BENFORD YELL IN ALL OF THEIR DESCRIPTIONS? OR DID WHOEVER ENTERED ALL THESE JUST HAVE CAPSLOCK STUCK ON? Black pour with a nice tan head. Good aroma, ash, chocolate, coffee, caramel, cream. Good flavor, ash, chocolate, coffee, caramel, cream, just a hint of savory from the oysters. Not bad. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2017

Friend from GA brought this down for camping trip. Had a small leak near the cap, but wanted to try to at least get the flavor. Had about 80% of this fizz still and was drinkable. Has a rich malty chocolate/coffee backbone. Oysters add some sweetness and maybe little bit of texture. Balance seemed ok. May have to have him bring me another one this year so I get can a better feel. Foxbush (2119) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2017

The aroma is fresh roast malt, sweet soft caramel, milky and mineral. The taste is clean roast malt, soft sea salt and caramel milk towards the mineral dry finish.

Poured from can. Smells great - coffee, caramel, cocoa, raisin, oats. Foamy sucker, takin a while to pour. Stout black with giant coarse head. First thing I notice is the salt - it is dominant. Also getting coffee, licorice, cocoa, and that oyster flavor as well. Quite drinkable considering the ingredients. I like it. chinchill (5343) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2016
12 oz can into an over-size Belgian snifter. Despite it’s size, it still couldn’t contain a partial pour due to the huge rising tan head. Black body. Decent retention and lacing. tnkw01 (1836) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 8, 2016
Aroma - has an actual noticeable briney aspect in addition to roasted malts and hints of toffee and dark chocolate.
Flavor: largely follows the aroma. Rather salty. Subtle oyster. Dark chocolate. Very good balance of these features. Plenty of dark and very dark roasted grains in the finish and lingering aftertaste.
Feel - medium body; smooth; excellent for a few minutes but less enticing as the carbonation dies down.
Overall: with limited experience, seems like a well above average oyster stout.
Can. Very dark brown, almost black with a small tan head. Aroma is burnt grains and dark coffee. Taste is a briny dark coffee with a tad of chocolate and a bitter finish. edgallow (4568) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Draft sampler pours black with a tan head. Aroma of grains, coffee and a hint of cocoa. taste is coffee and salt.
