On tap at Triangle Wine Co. I have been looking for this one for a while now. Pours black with a light khaki colored head. Smells and tastes similar to the Milk Stout but slightly more robust. I don’t detect anything from it that would make it an "oyster stout". My co-worker who was with me had one and agreed. My only point of reference on oyster stouts was Flying Dog’s, and this tastes nothing like that. I was a bit disappointed by it, but it wasn’t bad. Average body and carbonation. I would try it again but I won’t seek it out.
Love me some oyster stouts. Tastes like their porter with a little salt which balanced the beer out very well. LinusStick (3497) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Nice sweet stout on tap at Mad Mex Robinson. Aroma was nice. Dark roasted malt and a slight chocolate powder scent. Pour was a beautiful dark brown/black with a 3 finger tan head. Taste was nice. Same roasted malt and chocolate flavors as the aroma. A slight toasty bitterness in the finish. No salt or mineral flavors which was disappointing, but still a nice drinkable stout BazookaJoe (274) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Pours black with some slight roast flavors in the nose. Body is very creamy with some notes of chocolate milk with a slight bitter finish.

Tap at fed and multiple pints at surf club courtesy of the one and only, Glenn Powlas. Thanks bud and nice work on this. One of DR’s better offerings (no malt sourness at all!), nice salinity and light ocean water, fairly roasty with a
Medium to full palate yet relatively easy to drink. I’ve enjoyed most of the oyster stouts I’ve had so far.

On tap at the Thirsty Monk. Pours a brown black with a beige head. Roasted malt aromas. Some salt and mineral smell. Tasty oyster salt roast chocolate. Dry bitterness with a touch of bakers chocolate. Dry balanced tasty stuff. NachlamSie (3534) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2013
8 oz at the Thirsty Monk. Pours near black with ruby hints. Salty aroma with that wild Duck Rabbit yeast thing going on. Notes of bittersweet cacao are here with dark fruits. The flavor hints at the ocean with a sturdy maltiness. Notes of plum, dark chocolate and roast are here as well. Pretty good.
