Draft at Fountainhead, Nitro. Pours a deep black with a dark tan head. NOse is roasty and smooth. Not overly ashy either. Some cocoa and chocoalte notes as well as floral hops. On taste, it is a bit ashy and accrid. Lacks finesse and a bit one dimensional. Okay.

Sampled on 11/20/2010. This stout pours a medium black color from a 33cl bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is roasty malt with a touch of smoke. A medium bodied stout. The malts are chocolate and coffee, a touch sweet. The hops are herbal. Decent balance. A touch thin tasting perhaps. Not sure I taste any oysters, or that I know what they would taste like in a beer. Mouthfeel is round and a little thin. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Bottle, Brown Derby, Springfield MO. Dark pour with ruby highlights, sand colored sticky head. Toasty milk chocolate aroma, warm porridge, and a delicious tobacco depth. Knowing it has oysters Im tempted to call it briney...but not sure if that is actually there. It does have some kind of mysterious extra something though, and man it is nice. Ocean breeze? Fresh plowed earth? Descriptors fail: I like it. Flavor much less elusive. A soft nutty chocolate roast, lactose sweetness, a little burned viney bitterness in the finish. Tastes both a little wild and very carefully crafted. Excellent.

JaBier (7394) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Bottle brought back by a friend. Reddish brown pour with a medium beige head. Nose is caramel and some unexpected spices (almost gingery) with a bit of chocolate. Briny and roasty flavor with a bit of chocolate before a roasty and somewhat salty finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2010
On tap. Dark brown - close to black - with a reddish hue and a dense, lacing and creamy beige head with good retention. The nose is surprisingly subdued, perhaps a little roast and a vague whiff of butter. Light body, low carbonation, soft mouthfeel, hard roasted malts and a vague spicy touch - from the oysters? Fairly bitter finish - from both hops and malts. 281110

iride15 (237) - Rockledge, Florida, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Draught at Coasters. Black pour with a medium cream colored head. Light roasted malt aroma with vague hints of salt. Smooth light bread roast flavor with notes of chocolate. Creamy feel with a salt and roast finish.

Flavor on this was great for a 5% stout. Nice full bodied flavor and aroma goes down smooth, dont know about the oysters but this brew has some character. Had this after a Guinness and it blew the Guinness away. under-appreciated..

doublebock (558) - California, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Black color with extra thick white head. Not much of an aroma. Peaty, roasted maltiness and cola. Very creamy smooth texture.Not tasting any oysters but I guess thats not a bad thing.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Pours a dark brown with a medium dark foam. Smells very subtly of saltwater. Tastes bitter and thin. The bitterness seems more a product of the salt than from hops, but is hopier than most stouts. Tastes more like a dark lager than a stout.
