355ml bottle. Pours a black colour brown-ruby tinged, foam tan head that quickly dissipates away and aroma of coffee & chocolate. Taste is roasted malt with bitter chocolate, coffee and an earthy note. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, some dryness and residual sweetness at the finish. Quite drinkable.

On tap at the Blind Tiger, Manhattan NY on 7th July 2013. Solid black with thick off-white creamy foam. Roasty aroma. Coffee, chocolate, liquorice and subtle saltiness in-mouth. Caramel in finish with spices, chocolate and lactic notes. Velvety, yet quite bodiful mouthfeel.

alexanderj (3577) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle; poured a dark cola brown with a khaki colored head. Aroma was light, with caramel, cocoa and roasted; maybe some minerals. Flavor was better; good sweetness with very light cocoa and roasted notes. Fairly straightforward, and didnt pick up many qualities of the oysters.

bkurtz (1068) - MOROCCO - JUL 7, 2013
Pours a very dark brown with amber highlights. Roasted malt and coffee aromas. I dont really taste any oysters, but it has a nice balance of flavors. I find it light for a stout, but I enjoyed this one.

flying_pig (1466) - SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2013
355ml bottle from Brewdog.com (3.49):
Black with amedium brown head that halves in size and stays as a thin, very slightly patchy one.
Light, sweet chocolate and some roasted malts with a hint of coffee. I could detect some cocoa and a definite hint of smoke.
Sweet malts and a lot of chocolate with a hint of coffee again. The taste is pretty basic with some sugar and a few earthy notes.
Light medium and smooth with a slightly creamy feel. There is a definite dry texture to the beer and some sweetness as well.

Pretty disappointing to be honest and not a beer I would recommend, not because it was a bad stout but because it was so basic throughout. Whilst drinkable this one was just a little too bland to really enjoy.

Foxbush (1897) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2013
12 oz bottle This was a gift from friends at Holden beach. The stout poured a deep black with beige head that quickly dissipated. The aroma was of light chocolate and roasted malt. This is a good stout and fun to drink. I find the oyster taste difficult to detect. The concept is interesting. Carbonation was average and the body medium. the finish was typical stout with roasted malt and chocolate.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This dark brown-black beer has chocolate and fruity flavours, saline notes? and a sweet, dry, slight roasted finish.
