12oz bottle. Appearance is pitch black with small head. Aroma is comprised of coffee, milk chocolate and tiny oyster bit. Taste is milk chocolate and berries. Palate is rather thin. Overall pretty good for the style, would drink again. AirForceHops (7133) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 4, 2015

Body is almost full and in line with the gravity. Texture and mouthfeel is pretty much creamy and smooth. Flavor is old coffee beans, bakers chocolate and light dry roast. Enjoyable!
12oz bottle from trade. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, spent coffee grounds. flavor is molasses, dark chocolate, coffee. The only hint that oysters were used is a slightly salted caramel in the finish.

Lots of roast and chocolate on the nose with an earthy note as well (probably from the oyster shells). Creamy chocolate taste with roasted malt, dark coffee, and that earthy bit again. Really good oyster stout.

Very well balanced stout that hits many flavor notes- roasted malts, some hop bitterness, moderate coffee and chocolate, bit of sweetness, even some dark fruits. Dark black pour with mocha colored head and lacing. Very well done. FROTHINGSLOSH (7670) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured black and oily with a medium sized foamy dark brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was bitter and toasty with strong floral hops, smoke and a touch of medicine. The flavor was bitter and toasty with notes of coffee, cocoa, vanilla, floral hops, a bit of dark fruit, but, cola and an earthy note. Nicely complex. Long finish. Moderately full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Interesting. Maxbier (950) - Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Blind tasting: Black with medium brown head. Roast malt aroma. Dry with bitter cocoa feel up front. Some booze on the finish. Other flavors in the middle and finish; grassy earthy, calcium, briny. Nice. demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2015
UPDATED: APR 3, 2015 Sweet and earthy. Chocolate, fruit, and distinct earthiness. Very nice. Medium body. Smooth with some lively carbonation. Very solid beer.
