Curios looking can staring at me from the shelf at Lucia's Bodega. You had me at DC Brau, and it wasn't until I got home that I saw the brewed with oysters on the side. Somewhat hazy dark brow with faint ruby at the edges and a huge fluffy frothy tan head that slowly recedes leaving a sticky mess on the sides of my glass. Earthy pine with hints of coffee, caramel and chocolate, with a hint of salty brine. The flavor is rich and malty with big caramel and chocolate notes offset slightly with an earthy pine that is not big enough to cut through the malt. Lingering hop bitterness in the finish is at times a little harsh. Gritty ashy texture in the mouthfeel makes me feel like I've inhaled some dust and drank some water to wash it away. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation. No easily identifiable date markings on the can so I can't tell if this is an older sample or this is supposed to be a malty black ipa. I could drink this, but I would call it a hoppy porter and ignore the grit.

From the 16 oz can. Sampled on November 2, 2014.

Before I get into the beer I should comment on the graphics and label. Love it! Great artwork. A lovely piece of work.

The pour is very dark brown to just about black with a long lasting tan head. Attractive to look at.

The aroma has a good toasted malt character but there is evidence of black licorice in the mix. Clean hop note. Inviting.,

Medium to full body.

Like the aroma the taste brings out a dark malt and licorice quality. But there is a decent earthy hop bitterness that brings everything into the fold at the end.

This beer--a collaboration between Baxter and DC Brau--pours a deep black color with a brown foamy/wispy head, sort of like cola. The nose has notes of floral, citrus, and toasted broad. The mouthfeel is smooth throughout the middle with a dry/bitter finish. The taste hits with a roasty hoppiness upfront and then fades into notes of dark chocolate, pine, coffee.

Overall, a solid beer. Unfortunately, I did not pick up on any oyster notes.

Sort of a black-brown-dark gray in color. Forms a moderate sized tan colored head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing. Aroma is roasty-toasty malts along with some nondescript hops and a slight metallic tang. Taste is sort of skunked out. Mostly its darker malts, but the malts are strong. Then there is a mix of pine and citrus hops, but, its not as if this is hoppy beer, either. A bit of that metallic taste on the back end. On the lighter side of medium in body. Mild to moderate bitterness. An okay brew. Not sure what the oysters add to this other than a gimmick factor.

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.
