Aroma of chocolate, roast pretzel, and coffee. Pours black and thick. Tastes of coffee, chocolate and a bite.of thick Amish pretzels. Starts black and ends salty sweet. Great stout. GuilTTy (735) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2009
On tap at Firewaters in the Tropicana Marketplace (Atlantic City). Rich brownish-black pour under a short but creamy medium beige head. Strong aroma of coffee and chocolate. Aromas follow through to the flavors and work very well together with additional notes of vanilla, toffee and a touch of dark fruit. Very creamy and silky texture with a long, mildly smoky finish. I’m hardly a homer and I’ve never been a huge fan of Flying Fish but this brew is extremely impressive. patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Bottle. 25.4oz. Split this beauty with James, Andrew, Ryan, and Belushi. Pours thick, deep brown, almost black, with a medium amber head. Robust, complex body with an outrageously creamy mouthfeel. Tart, tangy, spicy, yet clean finish. Excellent stout from Flyin Fish. Highly recommended. Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Chocolate coffee aroma on this black pour with a chocolate head. Iced coffee flavor with subtle sweetness. Smooth finish. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2010
750mL bottle. Poured rather highly-viscous dark brown with a mega-deep brown head.. would’ve been a "5" if the head stuck around a little longer. The aroma picked up burnt molasses and black patent maltage upfront, with milk chocolate and light mineral notes accenting (although I probably wouldn’t have noticed the minerals in a blind tasting).. warm and chocolatey on the back.. I really dug the nose here. The flavor found black patent and sweeter, milky chocolates all the way through.. vanilla sweetness and a touch of coffee bitterness around.. slightly sour roasty coffee and milk chocolate on the finish. Medium-plus bodied with a nice, heavier feel on the palate.. dry-roasted with a great flow to it.. balance was right on. This was an excellent brew!

I love this stout. It has a cherry chocolate edge to it, a fresh chocolate malt aroma with a hoppy edge and the oysters give it a dryness which seem to balance out the other flavors. Perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness IMHO. I’m not a seafood person but could become one fast. The only aspect of this preventing perfection is a bit of a resiny tone in the finish.

The aroma is full of chocolate and licorice with a slight burnt note. Black color with a tan head with ok head retention. The flavor is a mostly smooth roasted malt complexity with some noticeable fruity esters on the front and middle end of the taste. The end note contains a hop and roasted grain bitterness to balance some of the maltiness. Medium-full body with silky creaminess and a dry endnote. Overall, a great tasting stout. I would buy this again.

Bottle from Canals in Egg Harbor. Really liked this one....big roasted malt nose. Dark brown pour..finger thick brown dark tan head. Flavor is delicious....more thick maltiness but an interesting spice is there with the nice bitter hop edge. The mineral-ness (mentioned in the description) is there but not in a gritty sense. Full bodied...the sweetness that is present during the taste falls off in the end giving way to some a very appropriate bitter finish. Good stuff. bhensonb (15616) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 5, 2010
750 from Wine Specialist. Pours black with a three+ finger dark tan head - very creamy. Primarily dark roasted/burnt malt for aroma, but there is something unusual. Full bodied with sharp, foamy carbonation. Flavor is the malt bitter, with a touch of coffee, and something sweet that goes in and out. Very nice. Gets more coffee with time. No detectable Ostreidae bits, but there’s something more than usually smooth about this very good stout. padrefan98 (854) - (San Diego) Santee, California, USA - APR 30, 2010
Bottle courtesy of dmac. Thanks Dave. Shared this with the east county crew by design. I had a feeling this one would be interesting and fun for everyone to try. I was pleasantly surprised immedietly by the dark liquid that flowed into our glass. Very thick, dark, oily small tan head. Aroma was malty, fruit, coffee, chocolate, raisin. Taste was outstanding. Well balanced. Little burn, very tasty. Almost no oyster flavor detected by me, but a few others said they could detect some. Overall really good and I am glad I got to try this.
