Strykzone (7033) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Sampled at rbsg. Very dark brown with amber. A beige head. Earthy and chocolatey. Earthy and grainy. Just a little oyster (fortunately).

JFGrind (2023) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Darkest brown, medium body with licorice, roasted malts and slight medicinal aftertaste. Maybe not the best pick from the beer fridge for a hot summer night.

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Equal parts dark caramel and soy sauce with touches of smoke, burnt wood / sawdust, wet greens, peanut butter. Dusty burnt cereals and inky-chewy sugars give it an oyster sauce resemblance, but maybe Im being led to that by the name. Its medium bodied and rich and sticky in the finish. The oyster-mineral touches are nice, but the malt isnt sitting right for me.

TThumper89 (28) - Otsego, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2016
05/18/16 On tap at American Tap Room in the Dulles, VA airport - 16oz draft in a pint glass. Nice very dark to black poor with a finger and a half "Guinness" head which settles to a very nice lingering lacing. Extremely nice malt and hop balance with an earthy finish. Extremely smooth and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

WillRunForBeer (2482) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 26, 2016
12oz bottle that Ive had in my fridge for a while. Pours medium dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate and brine. Flavor is chocolate, molasses, smoke, a bit of salt.

tfontana (857) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle pour into tulip glass from Julios Liquors. Aroma is roasted malt, mild chocolate and sea water/oyster. Appearance is dark black, almost opaque, with dark red at edges and bottom of glass, mild sparkle at edges, 1/2 finger width tan head with poor retention and trace lacing. Taste is as aroma with sweet/bitter contribution of roasted malts even more forward than hints of chocolate and oyster than aroma; late smoke/ash. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, average to lively carbonation, and mildly roasted bitter crisp finish. Overall, pretty true to style but the oysters dont add much.
