Put a glass of this up to the sun and watch it BLACK IT OUT!!! Straight up motor oil baby and impressive in how deep it takes things. Very subtly nice with the smell that doesn't overpower with any distinct profile. As a typical stout goes, it ranks above average as it really does showcase what I look for in this type of ale. A little dry by some standards, but the main knock across the board is it's advertisement of being a oyster brewed ale and I didn't get a flavor or aroma of such a thing. . . I'm not asking for straight "shuck & suck" juice of the ocean, but a little touch of anything would have been nice. Still, I'm a fan of stouts and this one is fitting the bill regardless of its semi-false advertisement. . .

22 shared tonight with Derick and reinheitsgematt... Pours black with a dark brown head that sticks around for a while...

Aromas show as pretty standard Dry stout... dark malt.. fruity elements are pretty low.

I guess I am getting the "oyster stout" qualities, but don't buy into the "briney" notes... there is just a positive minerally backbone that jives well with the dark malts.

Lower body with a nice drinkability.. Well done for an "Oyster Stout" .

All 3.75's.

Poured into an Elysian snifter. Pours a dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque in the glass, with a half finger light brown head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, Mexican chocolate (chocolate and cinnamon), a hint of brininess. Flavor is toasted malt with light char, biscuit malt, hints of chocolate, mild, barely detectable sea brine. Finish is mellow toasty malt and hop bitterness. Pleasant moderately creamy body with a nice mouth feel. A well made quite toasty stout with a good touch of char and a good balance possibly from the oyster shells acting to reduce acidity. There is a slight sea salt taste, but I probably would not have detected it if I wasn't looking for it. Enjoyable example of an uncommon, but generally fun to drink stout style. Style leans more toward the English or Irish dry stout profile.
