Oyster Stout.
In 1938 the original Hammerton Brewery was famous for being the first in the world to use Oysters as part of the brewing process. In this new recipe we’ve used a variety of flavoursome malts, including a good dose of oats. Fresh wild Maldon oysters are then added to the boil to add a subtle extra complexity to the taste of this stout.

Pint, Euston tap. Pours dense black, generous off white head which lasts. Big roasty aroma, with hint of brine. Balance is good: bitter, full mouthfeel, roasty, touch of salt, some chocolate. A very nice pint for a chilly day. Plenty of vitamins in there of course.... Liked this a lot.

Tried this at Cuddington Beer Festival and gave it my highest score of the night. A delightful smooth and creamy stout with a gentle smokey flavour. Highly recommended to any fellow stout lovers.

Tried at the Eebira tap, Bermondsey. Deep brown to black colour with s tan head. Aroma is roasted with a taste that has depth from the oysters. Full rich body.

Really enjoyed this one. Dark color, very nice creamy foam. Chocolate and hints of coffee in aroma, same taste. Aftertaste is not too sweet, not too bitter. Pleasant and easy to drink.
