visionthing (4956) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 19, 2013
35,5cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours very dark with a pretty short lived tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, caramel and hints of dark chocolate and dark fruits. Moderate sweet with fairly mild roasty flavours and a nice bitterness. Surprisingly lightbodied with a fairly average carbonation. Easy drinkable and enjoyable.

Deep, dark brown-black color with the matte finish of a bowling ball. Not a ton of head, but very thick and opaque. A little more head is the only thing keeping this from being a 5. Nutty aroma, with hazelnut and that rock-y, mineral aroma. Very dry and malty. Not sweet, not bitter, but just perfectly balanced. There is a little hay, and I really like it. There is a touch of some marshmallow. The sweet malt flavor of an Irish stout, but with a touch of marshmallow sugar. The "oyster" manifests itself as a mineral flavor, like licking a stone. Its The feel is chewy and a little thick. Smooth on the outside. A top-shelf oyster stout. Pairing note: had this with clam chowder for Thanksgiving last year. MUCH better than with Guinness.

Opaque Pitch Black Color, Small Tan Head Did Not Last Long, Left Little Spotty Lacing. Not Much of Aroma, Guinness Like Aroma. Taste however is completely different. Sweet, Malt, Chocolate, Light Roast Bitter. No Oysters, Although Im not complaining. More sweet Chocolate than anything else. Pleasant lasting sweet chocolate aftertaste. Love the name and Label. Real Nice Beer. Loved It. Recommended...

12oz into a tulip glass. Pours a fluid black magic. Head is medium bodied then fades towards a nice lacing and small islands. Taste is dry ocean breeze, salt water, funky malts spread everywhere, and danity rivers of pleasant hops on the backside. Aroma is somewhat skunky and weird, but inviting. Fried oysters on the backshell maybe? Stout qualities are there, but made minimal by the overally exemplified nature of this concoction. A nice departure from an ordinary stout.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle. Short lived light beige head tops an almost black body. Nose has roasted malt, coffee, nuttiness and maybe a little fleeting seaweed. Tastes lightly sweet with a touch more bitterness. Flavor is roasted malt, coffee and some tangy bitter notes. Body is medium light and a bit thin with some fizz. Finishes fairly dry with light bitterness. Decent.

"A dry stout brewed with local oysters, Pearl Necklace was the brainchild of Flying Dog, Rappahannock River Oysters, and Baltimore’s Woodberry Kitchen. “Both Rappahannock and Woodberry were great partners in educating us on the oyster issues facing the Chesapeake Bay,” our Brewmaster Matt Brophy told us. “When we became fully aware of how crucial oysters are to the Bay’s fragile ecosystem, we knew we needed to do more than just brew a beer.” Proceeds from Pearl Necklace will benefit the Oyster Recovery Partnership, which coordinates and conducts large-scale oyster restoration efforts in the Chesapeake Bay. Both Woodberry Kitchen and Rappahannock River Oysters work closely with the Partnership on shell recycling programs and more." ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (7616) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours a pitch black with a tight khaki colored head. Aroma has some chocolate accents, a hint of smoky creosote. Bold flavor with some roasted notes, a touch of bakers unsweetened chocolate, some black coffee and a meaty-like back end that must be the oysters. Thickish, yet dry mouthfeel. Pleasantly surprised.

Aurelius (5158) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Dry, toasted coffeeish aroma with just a tad of creosote. Clear, very dark beer. Quickly dissipating tan head. Ghastly label on a standard US longneck. Yknow, the joke is over and labels should make things more appealing, and not make you feel like youre drinking some kind of warped zombie water. Roasted, smoky, thats all. I dont get the oyster at all, so why bother? Medium body, roasty dry finish. Not bad, but perhaps gimmicky. ABC Betton.
