Brown pour, not much head to speak of. Roasted malt, coffee and salty oysters in the aroma. Big flavour, coffee and a saturation of heavy roast malt. Quite light bodied and quaffable. Finish is more coffee, a whack of hops, some smokiness. Nice. Slipstream (2675) - USA - APR 24, 2013
Black pour with a chalk-colored lid. Malty, coffee aroma plus some sweet aroma hops and a touch of yeast. I liked the flavor on draft (at Rosamund) more than from a bottle. A toasty, light stout with an undercurrent of brine and shellfish. Let’s hear it for seafood beers! Why stop with oysters? swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 24, 2013
draft at Pizza Plant Walker. black pour, medium body. Good flavor, roasted maltiness, creamy, touch of bakers chocolate. Solid stout djd07 (15330) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2013
Bottle as shown. Pours a dark brown with medium creamy beie head. The aroma is a bready malt and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with sweet roasted malt and chocolate with lingering dry finish. A good dry stout. Cool_Bond (2737) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2013
Good fragrance with a moderate flavor. The aftertaste is left for a long while. Maybe a little dry but okay.

Solid stout, but I didn’t detect much oyster in it. Compare to Harpoon’s version, this is tame. Maybe FD has a little mineral roughness to it, but not much. Of course, a true oyster stout is an acquired taste. So they took the easy road. Iphonephan (7186) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2013
From a 12 oz bottle shared in Avon NC. Pours a cloudy dark cola with an off white head. Toasted biscuit aroma. Flavors roasted malt, saltines and just a hint of oyster. Nice balance. Mellow aftertaste. gam (4037) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2013

Bottle. Black with a small head.Some maltiness and a medium body. Pleasant but nothing exceptional. omega (900) - NEW ZEALAND - APR 20, 2013
Looks better than it tastes. Not a big fan of oysters to start with, this beer does not have the richness and depth I was hoping for.
