3.9/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served on-tap in a Shaker pint at Mellow Mushroom (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Black hue with short cap of beige, frothy head that holds well and leaves some lace scraps at the top of the glass.

S: Good dose of dark malt roastiness with some fig and raisin dark fruit aromas

T: The dark fruitiness works well with the oyster bite to create a very heavy flavor that lays over the palate for a long time. The roast component is not overwhelming but complements the fig and raisin fruitiness and the slightly salty nature of this brew.

M: Good thick mouthfeel with medium body and low carbonation to enhance the thick favored sensation.

O: A nice oyster stout with the salty, soft but heavy flavor of the style.

Serving type: on-tap

First had: on tap at the brewery

Black pour, with a small tan head; some dots of lacing on the glass. Aroma was pretty muted, roasty dark malts, toasted oats, mineral. Basic stout taste, dark malts, light coffee notes, a touch of earth and mineral, but otherwise nothing that really shouted "oyster stout." If it wasn't listed as an oyster stout, I probably wouldn't have guessed it was one. Body was medium, somewhat thin in the mouthfeel. Not great, but still decent and drinkable.

3.81/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured a blackish body with one finger khaki head and some lace. The base of the aroma is strong malts, pick up some roasted malts, little bit of woodiness and sweetness and not much hops. More porter than stout in terms of how "heavy" the beer is, it goes down smooth, creamy, light. Moderate sweetness like caramel and possible chocolate mixes with some roasted, coffee notes for balance and a dry finish. Not a standout beer but a pretty good one to try.

A- no light gets through this black beer. A thin khaki colored head has slight retention

S- roast malt and a slight hint of alcohol

T- big roast malt flavor. I don't detect any brine imparted by the shells but I get the impression their presence dial back the robust roast notes to make this an easy to drink beer

M- the oyster shells provide a nice mouthfeel with this stout being extraordinarily smooth.

O- a tasty full flavor stout that doesn't blow out the taste buds

Serving type: growler

draft at the brewpub

The beer pours a black color with a dense coating of beige head, retaining nicely. Very nice set here - a backbone of dry, smooth roasted malts bring flavors of charcoal and dark barley with very little sweetness...setting a clean stage for the introduction of a mild sea-brine finish. Touches of dark fruit skins. Smooth in body with a lighter carbonation. Very nice.

On tap at Port City. Served in a taster glass. Probably the best oyster stout I’ve had. Dry and toasty with a mild "sea" character. Touch of milk chocolate.
