beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2010
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a clear deep ruby red with moderate tan head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left considerable spots of lace. Pleasant aroma of chocolate, caramel and a bit of saltiness. The flavor is lightly roasted malt and caramel. This is followed by some light hops bitterness along with some brine. The mild saltiness and hops bitterness pair very well together. Something out of the ordinary and enjoyable!

Bottle. Pours a mahogany-tinged black with khaki head. The aroma is somewhat salty with a good chocolate note, some caramel, and a bit of cappuccino. The flavor is quite roasty at first, but then a surprising hoppiness kicks in. The herbal bitterness is stronger than I expected, and is very interesting with the salty oyster taste behind it. I also pick up something like ginger that seems out of the ordinary. Fascinating beer if nothing else.

Flavor is heavy malt (coffee, roast, nutty), light hops (earthy, woody), light esters (dried fruit) with notes of smoke and oysters.

On draft at Capones. Pours a dark ruby red cola with a thick and creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and cough medicine. Taste of roasted malts and Robitusin cough syrup.

3.3
sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2010
bouteille, brun clair qcq notes de sel marin, malt caramel, léger au palais, huître se ressentent un peu sans trop dominer le tout, on y note qcq touches de sel et algue; herbes. Palais est moyen voire léger. Si ce n’est pour l’ajout des huîtres,cette bière reste faible et sans grand intérêt sans pour cela être mauvaise..

robertjm (892) - Albany, California, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Pop top cap. Really strange. Huge foamy head, Tons of carbonation. Dark black body. Not a huge aroma, but present. Somewhat like black licorice and anise. Light roasty flavor. Probably my imagination but I suppose I’m tasting a bit of the oyster too. Body more like a black lager than a stout. Interesting to try, but not on my must have list.

Velkyal (321) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2010
beer was a deep ruby red with a rocky head. The usual stout aromas abounded, chocolate and coffee front and centre, but there was something else, lurking in the background, something I couldn’t place. The only thing I could think of was that it had a touch of the sea about it, somewhat akin to the Islay whiskies, perhaps that was pure suggestion, but there we go. As far as drinking goes, lighter than some stouts, but full of flavour and with a long bitter finish, simply put it is great drinking and beats the stuff on nitro in Dublin.

A quickly fading light brown head tops a black body. The nose has some strong notes of coffee and the oyster. There is also some raw grain and dark chocolate. The taste has some nice roasted coffee and grainy bread crust. There is also some hint of cherry, especially in the finish. This is nice.
