Tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a big frothy head. Roasty, and the oyster element does come out. This is really good. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 13, 2012
Tap at Port City. Deep ruby pour with a rocky, thicker tan head. Nose is heavy roast and Marmite. Taste is bitter chocolate, bitter cocoa, powdery chocolate. Not bad. No saltwater or oyster but still good. Nice, bitter chocolate palate.

This is the first oyster stout I had while actually eating oysters thanks to some event I stumbled into by accident at Glen’s Garden Market. Free food is awesome. This one has nice roast and a good dose of oyster saltiness. Pours black with good head and lacing. Bitter and lightly salty finish. Light oyster notes. These guys make good dark beers.
