From my notes of the Pemaquid Oyster festival at the brewery from last year.

Pours a pitch black color, touch of head.

Nose is darker malts, light roast and coffee, caramel and toffee, hint of chocolate, fluffy dark malts and a hint of a briny salty earthy touch.

Taste has some more dark malts, little roast and coffee, chocolate, caramel, toffee, oats, etc... then an interesting briny taste, salty and very earthy almost mushroomy, as well as a bit of earthy hops. Finish continues a bit of the briny slight sea like taste, and some of the lingering roast chocolate and coffee.

Mouth is med to fuller bodied, semi rich and creamy, decent carb.

Overall OK, nice malts but briny flavors are strange and don't meld well with the nice malts.

Purchased fresh on 11/25/11

Purchased @ Marshall Wharf brewery, Belfast ME

This one pours a deep shade of brown bordering black with a faint ruby edge when held up to the light. A nice two fingered creamy lite tan head climbs to the rim and hangs on with a fair amount of retention. A curtain of lacing mixed with polka dots stick to the walls of the glass which compliments the appearance.

The aroma is soft and sweet with chocolate, molasses, coffee and a noticeable roastiness.

Flavor begins bitter sweet with chocolate followed by a lingering taste of coffee, roasted malt and earthy hops. I can detect a faint sandy/mineral aftertaste which must be related to the 10 live oysters this beer was brewed with.

The mouthfeel starts out clean and smooth over a medium body. Carbonation along with bitterness are both faint, however a definite dryness is noticeable after several glasses.

Overall an interesting example and quite enjoyable. Never in my wildest imagination would I ever have thought of beers brewed with oysters. Never the less, a real easy drinking sessionable stout.

Poured on nitro-tap at Three Tides, and served in a pint glass. The beer pours jet black, with a thin, milk chocolate colored, filmy head. Aromas of bittersweet chocolate, salt-water, and seafood. Flavors are initially heavy, dark roasted coffee, with a smooth chocolate undertone, and flavors end with briney and salt-water oyster flavors. Not overpowering, but unmistakably oyster, so if you aren't a fan, consider yourself forewarned. The aftertaste is roasted and smokey, again with seafood characteristics at the end. The brew is creamy and smooth, and very tasty overall. I am a big fan of this beer.
