COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one-of-a-kind, limited-batch creation has a rich body and a smooth feel derived from a combination of roasted barley and chocolate rye malts. The roasted notes of the stout blend beautifully with the briny, mineral flavors of Island Creek Oysters, which were added to the brew moments after being harvested in Duxbury Bay. An addition of hops adds a hint of bitterness and aroma to balance the sweetness from the malt combination. This beer is best enjoyed in a pint glass with a plate full of Island Creek Oysters.

Bottle at nimbleprop DC tasting, 6 March 2010. Not the darkest stout I’ve ever seen. Quite roasty with plenty of milky chocolate in the flavour. Not too sweet. Quite light mouthfeel – certainly not a brassy, rich stout – but well balanced and smooth. Coupled with the relatively light alcohol presence – certainly no boozy notes here – this made for a very drinkable stout. A solid, enjoyable offering from Harpoon. Didn’t really pick up much contribution from the oysters though.

Tasting at Papsø’s, as #36 - Island Creek Oyster Stout
Dark mahogany color, almost black, with red shades; medium sized beige head. Aroma of wet cardboard, paper, some roasted malts. Roasted malt flavor, caramel, dryish, a bit salty, with some dark chocolate. Correct bitterness. Pleasant.

Many thanks to Cletus for the bottle. Pours black with almost tan head. Nose is grain, cereal, oatmeal and oyster. Taste is mostly roasted malts. Very dry. Some hint of brine, but it’s in the background. This comes across as mostly a dry stout.
