Bottle from the Microbar, Manchester. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Raisin and chocolate aroma. Dark fruit and chocolate flavour. Not bad.

MarkSachon (997) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2013
12 oz bottle from Ds in Pittsburgh. Perfect color, but off a bit on aroma. Thin for a stout with very little taste of oyster. Could have been much better.

12 fl oz bottle at Brewberry. Aroma is roasted malty and light chocolate. Light metallic, toasted malty and chocolate. Bitter and roasted malty. Chocolat and roasted malt, dry finish.

RedSox2004 (1853) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Poured deep black, completely opaque, with minimal head and lacing. Roasted coffee aromas up front, with hints of chocolate, and oysters, but only because I was looking for them. Espresso/coffee flavors with a slight hops bitterness sneaking in. Silky smooth mouthfeel, medium to full bodied, and a rich malty aftertaste that lingers. Points off for being gimmicky. Cmon, oysters?

Goodgrief (2018) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Dark pour, tan head. Dry flavor with a slight sweet twang. Roast and a touch of lactic chocolate. A bit thin on the tongue. Just okay.

andyhwcinc (1871) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Purchased at Breeze Thru Liquors in Wauwatosa, WI; enjoyed on a Friday prior to my new bands first show. Appearance is a cola like dark dark brown with a small white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is of chocolate, smoke, a bit of coffee bitterness as well. Taste goes down pretty nice and smooth with a mild bitterness and a pleasant chocolate flavor. This is my first oyster stout, and Im not getting much of a fish flavor, cant complain.

Pours near black with a thin, fully receding tan head. Notes of toasted malt, chocolate. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation.

hainer (20) - New York, USA - JAN 22, 2013
There is a fine line between complex and all over the place. Pours pitch dark with very little head, releasing a pleasant, smoky aroma. The uneven taste varies with every sip, ranging from roasted coffee, to coal and nutty to bitter caramel. Amid the myriad flavors, I simply couldnt detect what the oyster bit contributed.

JStax (6129) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a brandy snifter. Pours a darker brown to black with a velvety beige head of foam. The aroma has mostly roasty sweetness with just a hint of salt. Taste is more roast. A light smoke comes through as well. Thicker on the palate.

PhillyBeer2112 (2810) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Once again Im impressed with a Flying Dog beer made in MD. Dark brown to black, modest head. Nice roasted nose, restrained but pleasing, with hints of bitter chocolate. Flavor similar, with a touch of mineraliness that I figure might have come from the oyster shells. Clean yeast profile features the light roast malt, semi-dry finish. Overall very good.
