The taste is really nice, and there is definitely a mineral saltiness at the back of the palate that really distinguishes this as an oyster stout. Very rich front palate too, nice roasty malty stout flavors, some coffee and cream flavors too. A really flavorful beer that’s salty and a little sweet, very nice. super tasty oyster stout. sharkweek (119) - Statesboro, Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Pours very black with a good two fingers of khaki head. Looks very nice. The aroma has some chocolate and a tinge of shellfish. The taste is dark chocolate and coffee. There is no overwhelming bitterness or sweetness. This beer works perfectly. The flavors are very nicely balanced and I recommend this to any stout lover. nuplastikk (6206) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 15, 2012
22oz bomber from FFF. Opaque brown-black, patchy beige head. Smooth, sweet chocolate coffee aroma. On the fuller side of medium bodied, quite sessionable and delicious. Almost smoky, in a chocolate covered way. Delicate cookie dough tones, subdued coffee. Excellent. Beerjunkie15 (55) - Romeoville, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Big fan of this one. Pours dark black with a rich tan head. Smooth going down the whole way. Not too seafoody but it really hits at the end. Half Acre and 3 Floyds together, you can’t go wrong. napdynmite (91) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Smoky chocolate. Syrupy with some dark cherry notes. Slight mocha flavor. Sweet malt flavors. I would drink this again in a heartbeat.

Bottle shared by JCB. Cheers, Jason. Very dark brown pour with a silky lighter brown head. Nose is nutty, roasty, fruity. Taste adds a bit of salty and earthy sweetness. Silky palate. Unique. Just a stunner all around. brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - APR 27, 2012
UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Very deep brown pour, capped by a creamy mocha colored head. Roast, toast, cocoa, very light mineral/brine, and earthy bark in the aroma. A dose of coffee comes through in the taste, and there is a nice umami quality to the flavor, as befits any respectable oyster stout. Medium body, wonderfully creamy, soft carb, with a nice touch of bitterness in the roasty finish. Tinge of green olive as it warms. Better at a cooler temperature. A solid oyster stout for sure, and nicely done at 5.6%. The nose is great; and even though the flavor doesn’t completely pop or evolve on the palate like some of my favorites ... I’d love to enjoy this again, as I am partial to this style. crosamich (433) - Twin Falls, Idaho, USA - MAY 20, 2012
This is the most "oyster-ish" oyster stout I have ever come across. The dominant and singular note of this beer. If what you are looking for then seek this out. This beer should be very polarizing, you like it or hate it. There is a spiciness here that I can’t quite place...is it all oysters? Or something else?

22oz bomber pours deep dark colored chocolate with tan looking head. The aroma is big mustiness, a touch of sour milk, earthy chocolate and highly roasted malts. The taste is just as big and roasty with dark roasted malts, chocolate and coffee and then moving into earthy notes. It dries out into the finish and turns more burnt and then more coffee as the flavor begins to fade away. Tasty roasty brew here. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bomber from the brewpub. Really handsome pour, a smoky, dusky dark brown with a head that’s by turns silken and gritty. Gnarly erster nose, filled with hints of mild smoke along with almonds and understated fruits. Fine, creamy mouthfeel but not excessively heavy. Taste is fantastic, adding nice molasses at the base and hints of brine throughout. Complex and awesome.
