pours an inky black goodness in to glass with an amazing tan head that fades slowly leaving sheets of lace down glass.
All that one loves of a stout, big roast smooth chocolate and an even bitterness that has a wonderful briney mineral complexity. AWESOME!!!
Roasty briney goodness with a firm chocolate and hop bitterness and a long smooth mineral finish. OUTSTANDING!!!
The mouth on this is super smooth and creamy that begs for more pints!
I love this brew!

A: Had this one on-tap, poured into a pint glass at Gene's Haufbrau. Had a black color and a thick impenetrable consistency. There was a half inch of fairly long-lasting, foamy, tan-colored head. Good lacing.
S: A very malty aroma, with some traces of coffee as well.
T: Tasted of coffee, light hops, and a moderate amount of malt. The advertised oyster component is there, but like with most oyster stouts, it comes off as a briny quality. Still, a pretty good flavor.
M: A good amount of carbonation with a dry, smooth finish. Medium-bodied.
O: This is a solid, easy to drink beer. Not mind-blowing, but pretty good.

My first offering from Holy City, had it on tap at the Mellow Mushroom in West Ashley. It was a black color with a tan head, nothing out of the ordinary for the style. The taste was more like a regular stout, couldn't really detect much of e saltiness that's associated with oyster stouts, ie COAST's offering. It did have a nice chocolatey undertone, to accentuate the slight hopiness. Definitely a good beer for the cold winter months.
