Can't taste oyster at all, tastes just like any other stout, which is not a style I'm into.

It looks to be pitch black with a 1 finger head of tan foam. Look at that lacing!

The smell is of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and some kind of fruity? I guess I will find out aboot that when I taste it.

No sign of any fruit in the taste. Roasted malt, hint of coffee, dark chocolate, semi sweet chocolate. Sounds nice, eh?, but, I don't know, the flavours come through as if they were muted or filtered. Maybe, in this case, a bit more alcohol may have helped?

Medium, close to full bodied, rather light carbonation.

Tried on handpump at Bir & Fud in Rome. This is an oyster stout, hence the "pearls" reference in the name.

Pours a solid, oily black colour, opaque with haze. Carbonation forms in a cloudy crest forming up to a frothy, persistent, pale-brown head. Lacing forms in patches and specks. Body is solid. Looks really good.

Toasty, nutty malt on the nose, but a little subdued. Some slight savoury characters come through with a little BBQ and saltiness. Some tannin comes through as well with a sharp wine sediment character. Overall, it's fairly light, but purposeful.

Light and frothy on the palate, some characters like milky coffee. Slight caramel tones come through, but not the true sweetness. The roast builds towards the mid and back, along with a red apple skin note. Finish is slightly medicinal or mineral like flint. Coffee lingers in the aftertaste.

Feel is smooth, frothy and light. Very nice.

Overall, this is a really solid, very easy-to-drink stout. The handpump really brought it out in its best light I think. It's a really cracking brew.
