Collaboration with Jason McAdam. A distinctly full-bodied and creamy stout with a touch of brine on the finish.

The "base" beer is a strong (medium strength by most standards, 16.6 plato) stout. We used chocolate wheat instead of the usual barley version along with a pinch of rolled rye.

In the end we decided to add roughly ten gallons of oyster "liquor" that Jason picked up fresh from the coast off a train. We didn’t want to brew an oyster stout without any oyster meat though so we also picked up eight dozen DeCourcy oysters from B.C. and cooked them during the kettle boil. After eating all the wort-soaked meat we cleaned and saved the shells to add later to the beer, post fermentation, like dryhopping.

troopie (2555) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - FEB 5, 2018
Draught. Black body with thin tan head. Aroma is malt and oyster. This is definitely an oyster stout. Malty and oyster flavour, doesn't seem like it has wheat and rye. Front of mouth finish,

sulawang (1219) - - OCT 18, 2017
Visual: (cellared for 5 years). Hefty bottle. Pours jet black-brown with a small 1mm head, a thin layer of bubbly retention, barely visible scattered micro slow streams.

Nose: dark fruity malts (lvl-8)-pungency

Attack: creamy-crisp-thicker, sweet dark malt impression

Mid-palate: milky-creamy mocha, (lvl-5-sweetness), sweet roasted dark malt, oyster-fishy sour undertones, prune-dark fruit, nutty

Finish: roasted coffee exhale, lingering bittersweet malty roast

Summary: A very bold and rich sweet stout with big dark fruit and roasted coffee notes, with the oysters seeming to add creamy depth a touch of salty-sour backdrop to an excellent base.

I love oysters, I like Upright, I don’t like the majority of stouts, heavy imperial ones are among my favorite brews. So I tried this. Am i smelling oysters, not sure, dark coffee, brown sugar. surprising light on the palate, flavor also a little watery though still the roast, some molasses, a hint of sweet and salty. clean finish,

Draught at brewery. Dark and roasty with chocolate and a low brine taste. Nice overall.

Draft 12 oz pour at Special Brews. Pours black with a heavily active tan fizz head. Mold roast aroma. Expected this to be wildly aromatic, but my expectations are usually random and unfitting. Flavor is roasted, almost pure smoked malt, with a slight salty finish. Smoked meat reminder palate. I’d prefer trying this without knowledge of the product, to see if I notice the oysters, or if I just notice them now because I know it’s there. Overall an intriguing, interesting stout. Fun and tasty.

Sarlacc83 (2514) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2016
Draft at the brewery. A: Purely black with a creme color head. Some lacing. N: Brine, milk chocolate, coffee, lactose, some vanilla, and earth. The oysters show up in the aforementioned brine, and the smell of the sea. There’s also a bit of meatiness here. T: Quite sweet, a bit salty, and not bitter. M: Medium, slick body, a bit of alcohol, soft carbonation. O: Tasty as always. Not nearly as weird as it sounds - the oystering really complements this one.

nealblind (2051) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 3, 2016
Red brown some tan head. Aroma hickory, sweet wood chesnuts. Tastes smokey, sweet mesquite.

BuckeyeBoy (9325) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 23, 2015
750ml bottle pours out a dark brown almost black topped with a tan head. nose is cocoa roast malts some light brine notes. Taste is more of the roast malts some sweetness and the nice brine mineral touch from the oysters.

gnoff (11277) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2015
On June 19, 2015. At The Alibi Room, in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Black color, brown head. Malty, sweet, some cocoa taste. Roasted aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Sweet, roasted scent.

fiulijn (21558) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2015
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Black color, brownish contact head. Roasted malt aroma. The mouthfeelin is rather dry but also very smooth; the roasted malt flavor is nice and not ashy, it comes with some sourness from the malts, no evident iodine or salt or fishy, luckily. Clean. Balanced.
Excellent Stout.
