22 oz bottle The stout had been in the refrigerator for awhile. I thought a rainy day was perfect time to open. The stout pours an opaque black with tan head that quickly dissipated. The aroma of roasted malt and chocolate greets you. The taste was full of oysters, chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor of cocoa was also enjoyed. The The body was light with soft carbonation. The aftertaste has hints of oysters. hershiser2 (3825) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2014

Bottle. Deep maroon brown color, thick tan head with good retention and solid lacing. Nice earthy aroma. Taste is earthy cocoa. obguthr (6829) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Walnut and seaweed aroma, charcoal accent. Black, medium tan head. Tangy, odd for a stout. Charcoal flavor. Rather sweet on the back of the palate. Light body, astringent. This didn’t work for me at all. TheBeerGod (6284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2014

4/20/2014. 22 oz. bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Coffee flavors mostly, medium to high carbonation and seem a bit diluted. Good but not great. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2014
I never get that excited about oyster stouts - great idea, but typically the execution turns out results that are frankly gross. But this wasn’t bad. Pours black with brown at edges, decent but slightly fizzy head. Aroma was chocolate and coffee, roast malt focused. Flavor matched. Hint of brine, probably because I was looking for it. A bit thin bodied, but not overly so. All in all, a respectable beer. Delighted that Legend continues to branch out a bit. A bit better than the score here I think.

Honestly, this is one of the best oyster stouts i’ve had. Slightly sweet roasty aroma with a hint of marshmallows. Reminiscent of Creme Brule. Flavor follows quite nicely, with cocoa and toasted graham crackers. Silky smooth and velvety on the tongue. Roasty finish. Very solid. Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Bomber from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Pours dark brown with a medium sized frothy brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of big chocolate notes, mineral notes and a bit of roast. The taste is dark fruits, roast, big chocolate, earthy and mineral notes from the oyster. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Solid stout. I’m glad that Legend is continuing it’s recent streak of great new beers. radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2014
