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. broozer81 (107) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Flavor on this was great for a 5% stout. Nice full bodied flavor and aroma goes down smooth, don’t know about the oysters but this brew has some character. Had this after a Guinness and it blew the Guinness away. under-appreciated.. mfdros (35) - , New York, USA - NOV 21, 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 that’s 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. BREWMUSKCLES (2686) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2010
on the tap at Stout nyc. velvet smooth and creamy stout with a very light and true Columbian coffee flavor and a tiny bit of old burnt Oyster shell that did not just come from the sea. Touch of mild chocolate both dark and milk with a big meandering creamy very light and full foam that is as substantive as the brew. I loved it. jtclockwork (16597) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Bottle thanks to Jcwattsrugger. Pours black with whitish head. Nose of roasted malts and light oyster. Taste is mostly roasted malts, with some background oyster, cracker and a slight spicy hop finish. SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a dark, clear brown with red hues and a tan head. Aroma has some nice dark roast notes with some light fruity esters. Flavor is very much the same with an added mineral quality. Mouth feel is medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, pretty tasty!
