Bottle pour of heavy black with a tan fluffy head. Aroma with a big punch of salty briny oysters as it sits the under notes of dark chocolate malt with a hint of sweet, burnt wood and soy sauce come out. Mellowed taste of fresh oysters with a a nice balanced roasted malt character. Full bodies with little finish to speak of. Overall a good and interesting beer that really lives up to its name in every senses I just don't know if I love oysters this much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle from Brewmasters in Wilson. Black hue body with caramel hue mostly diminishing fizzy head. Virtually no lacing. Heavy malt/coffee/ chocolate aroma. Moderate malty chocolate on the initial taste with a long salty finish. OIly texture on the palate. I would drink it again!!

Bottle. Aroma has coffee, soy and burnt wood. Taste has some soy, dark syrup and coffee. Quite light overall but has a nice mouthfeel.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - NOV 10, 2013
An opaque brown body with a tan head that had nice retention and decent lace. A roasted malt note upfront a subtle sweetness and a mineral like quality rounded out the aroma. Flavor was similar and the finish was mildly dry. Smooth and moderate mouth feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow. Strange beer! I feel dry prune taste as the foreground. A lot of dry prune. The aroma is not very good. Some wet cardboard. Full body, soft carbonation. Deep feeling to it, but mainly this dry prune... Poor head retention, but its good when it lasts.

Pours a thin tan head on a black body. The aroma is roasted malt, light coffee and earth. The taste is lightly roasted malt, a little salt and mild lemon bitterness. Nicely balanced and easy to drink. The texture is smooth with a crisp edge; moderate carbonation. An enjoyable stout.

Its a good but not great stout. Had on tap at Topless Oyster- this style is supposed to be low carbonation but seemed to be fairly carbonated to me. Pours dark- head dissipated quickly. Was served too cold, but must have been tasty as it seemed hard to wait for it to warm up. A bit thin for a stout to me. Not to bitter or sweet- just balanced. A hint of brine from the oysters but hardly "fishy". Would like to try in bottle- curious about carbonation factor. Not my favorite dark beer, but totally drinkable.

Small tan rocky head which fell nearly immediately. Opaque black body with a hint of brown. Chocolatey toasty aroma. Distinct oyster flavor to this. Reminds me of a can of smoked oysters though not as fishy.

12 ounce bottle. Translucent brown, black color. Big rocky tan head. Briny roasted malt aroma. More roasted malt flavor . Light charcoal flavor upfront. No real discerning oyster flavor. Somewhat smooth and very drinkable. Finish is dry and satisfying.

Fles bij de 12 balcken in den burg. Zwart met minimaal bruin schuim. In de geur gebrande mout en speculaaskruiden. volle body voor een biertje van 5,5% begint zoetig en met een mooie bittere afdronk
