Some chocolate charcoal and deep dark bitter pine hop goodness. Pretty thick and plenty tasty.

A - Pours a near black with a nice dense finger of light toffee colored head, solid retention, awesome lacing.

S - Nice chocolate minerally nose, light coffee and caramel notes. A wee bit yeasty

T - Chocolate malt, slightly bitter, lots of minerally flavors. Piney bitterness lingers a bit, minimally yeasty at the finish. Aftertaste is a wee bit roasty/bitter

M - Medium bodied+, decent carbonation, super smooth

Beaut of a can. Cola colored liquid with a thick tan head. Bright citrus aroma jumps out of the can with an odd seaweed/tidepool in back. Hops simmer down a bit once the beer is in my glass.

Smooth mouth fell up front then dry, roast smoke then a briny finish. Citrus hops are there but they meld subtly with the roast malt. With some much going on (hops vs. roast malt vs. brine) I thought this would be a mess but it has a definite, well executed direction.

16oz can poured into an Idle Hands tulip.

A - Pours a near black color with a thick finger of frothy mocha head that slowly fades away leaving behind some soapy lacing on the glass.

S - Roasted malt up front, more like a brown ale at the base. Grassy and citrusy hops kick in next mixed with a mildly boozy aspect, rather earthy and dirty, slightly metallic. Oysters...not so much.

T - Roasty and super earthy/dirt-like at the base...almost like sliding into 2nd base head first and coming up with a mouthful of infield dirt. Mild bitterness, roasty with a bit of charcoal and hints of coffee. Metallic and grassy hop bitterness. Perhaps a bit salty which could be attributed to the oysters, but only very loosely noticeable.

M - Medium to full bodied, creamy and a bit foamy carbonation that stays lower than mid level but still manages to tingle the tongue a bit too. Very roasty with mild hop character overall.

O - Artwork on the can in enticing...not a favorite style of beer to begin with, but I was intrigued enough seeing it on the shelf to give it a try. Pretty much hangs in there with most other black IPA's...not offensive but not something I would run to either. Might not finish the glass...save room for something else. If you like black IPA's - have at it, otherwise nothing special to go out of your way for.

16 oz can was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A two finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a small layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything.

Smell: Smoke, roasted coffee, earthy, chocolate, and citrus hops.

Taste: Picking up some resiny pine with add llama the other aromas and a some pale malt sweetness too.

Mouthfeel: Creamy smooth, full bodied, low to medium carbonation, and ashy bitterness.

Overall: Even though local Maine oysters were used that I couldn't taste, this beer was pretty stellar.

16oz can. Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Careful pour yields a huge offwhite head with almost eternal retention. Pours a dark brown and leaves lots of lacing.

Smell: Citrusy hops and some cocoa-like dark malt. Pretty good.

Taste: Roasted malt and somewhat earthy, citrusy hops up front. Some cookie flavors evoked by the creamy mouthfeel and dark malts. Dry, salty finish (placebo? ...no, it's pretty salty).

The malt flavor has a real burst aspect to it (hoppy and husky up front then a *surge* of sweeter, more characterful malt flavor) that's giving me good sense memories of great stouts past. Really like how the super creamy feel + sweetish malts play off the dryness and saltiness at the end. 8% ABV is completely hidden.

Mouthfeel: Stunning mouthfeel for a black IPA. Starts with some juicy/watery hop earthiness but then smooths wayyyy out to coffee milkshake creaminess (creamier than good nitro stouts), then dries up and leaves a salty aftertaste. Medium bodied. Low to moderate carbonation. Wow factor, as they say.

Overall: Unique, well crafted beer. Not entirely sure what the oysters did, but I suspect they helped. I already was a believer in DC Brau. This beer raises Baxter's profile for me a bit as well.
