Fresh oysters added during the brewing process, lend a discernible yet unidentifiable note.

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.

BREWMUSKCLES (2647) - 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.

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!

All Im getting from this is a roast lager. Everything about it except the appearance is like a good lager. Im not getting any saltiness from the oysters, nothing in the aroma. Pretty good lager but oyster stout? I don think so.

Bottle/11.2oz - The pull-top was cool!! Pours a very dark brown in color with a medium tan head that stuck around for the end producing some interesting lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts, brine, dark fruits and some astringent tartness. Flavor is fruity (apple, strawberry) with citrus, plenty of brine, slightly sweet along with mild roastiness. On of the better oyster stouts I have had...
