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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: 1/3 inch head, black in color, low carbonation, opaque

Smell: earth, pine and citrus fruits

Taste: earth, pine, dark chocolate, and citrus fruits

Mouthfeel:sweet start with roasty bitter middle and finish, medium bodied with medium carbonation

Overall: An ok to slightly above average black IPA. I did not get much of the brininess that I was expecting from the oysters. I could have this again or just as well pass.

A Black IPA brewed with Oysters? Different, so yeah I'll try.

A: Deep brown, nearly black, with a two finger creamy khaki head that fades to a solid chunky lace.

S: Coffee and roast, a touch of chocolate, and a tad of earthiness. Doesn't scream hops to me, more a porter on the nose than IPA, but that is ok.

T: A lot going on, with some chocolate and roast, a bit of pine, and citrus hop character I didn't pick up on the nose. Perhaps a touch of saltiness from the oysters, but that might just be in my head...

M: Medium bodied and smooth with a creamy carbonation and mild bitterness. Easy drinking at 8% with no alcohol burn.

O: The oysters made me buy it and I"m not really sure they add much to the beer. However, it is a decent black IPA and worth a go.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A - Brown-black some highlights at the edges. Small slightly off-white head. Left tons of lacing.

S - Not much there, some roasty notes. No real detectable hops. Maybe some earthy hops, but this could've just been a mild.

T - Ah there's the hops I was looking for. Roasty notes quickly balanced by earthy, herbal hops, then the coffee, dark malts re-establish their presence. Nice back and forth.

M - Medium to thick body, low carbonation. Coats the palate and lingers. Nothing crisp about this brew. Admittedly, I am not experienced with the oyster brews. I imagine this might be the desired quality?

O - A fine brew. Nice to see a collaboration between DC Brau and Baxter. Probably wouldn't seek out again, but happy to have enjoyed.
