Amo alla follia questa birra! Naso fantastico ostriche molto salmastro, cosi anche il sapore indubbiamente tante ostriche e sapore di mare, le telline non si notano molto e poi cmq rimane anche il caratteristico sapore di stout! Davvero fantastica questa birra! davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 2, 2012
On tap at Beer de Luxe. Nice hoppy notes. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, and liquorice. Taste is sweet and bitter, with salty notes, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Black, with an off-white head. Cantabrian (1154) - Christchurch NZ, now Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014 Right! I had this in Melbourne, perhaps the last bottle of Perle ai Porci surviving in Australia. First of all, just do not expect to get any hint of the sea briny, no oysters or wedge shells (telline) on sight...I mean, on taste. But it is an awfully nice stout. Lovely aroma of olives, not leathery pungent as in North American stouts, but fruity and crisp. Some raspberry there mingled with those olives too. So, the beer is dark brown, with a beige head that dissipates in the blink of an eye. Rather well-carbonated, from the looks of it. Flavours of roasted malts, not too roasted, but full of dark chocolates and some berries. There’s a good dose of vegemite for the saltiness, and the palate is tremendously oily. Great stout, I could have a lot more than those 650 ml. One of the raters below says it tastes like cum. Well, I’m afraid I cannot comment on that...but if cum indeed tastes like this beer, I’ll be prepared to review my sexual persuasion! :D Braudog (6803) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Draft at the Birch, I think I was the first (thanks, Ben). Midnight red-black with a thin top, pockmarked with watery foamy bubbles. The beer has a whipped coffee character up front, super dry, cloying even. But then you get that salt-lick-kick in the finish. No, I made sure it wasn’t the nuts. Interesting, good stuff.

Bottiglia. Colore nero impenetrabile con una leggerissima schiuma bianca abbastanza persistente. Aroma equilibrato tra vaniglia, caffè e una leggera nota di sottofondo derivata dall’ uso delle ostriche. Si ripropone uguale in bocca con una lieve nota acidula proveniente dai malti scuri. Oleosa, equilibrata, leggermente più dolciastra con lo scaldarsi della birra. Lascia il palato e la lingua piacevolmente Pizzicato

Draught @ open baladin Roma. solid black appearance, minimal white head quick to disappear. not very strong salty and roasty aroma.
On the palate comes the masterpiece: AMAZING salty, oyster, sand taste perfectly balanced with the character of a good regular porter. You can image to eat some fish drinking it. Quite roasted. The body is medium with a soft/average carbonation. light bitterness and medium sweetness. this beer is so incredible enjoyable. Stunning stuff, perfectly in style
I bet it’s very difficult to find an’other REAL oyster stout like this nowadays domienS (250) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2013
