Thanks to Phil at Perennial for sharing at his brewery.

A - Pours black, off-white/tan head, thin collar.

S - Roasty, sweet malts, chocolate, hops, light smoke. I don't get any of the oysters, but still a solid nose, nonetheless. Maybe the smoke is the oysters mixed with the base beer? Dunno.

T - Similar to the nose with a bit more chocolate and less smoke. The hops are toned down as well, which I like. Good roast and malty notes. Finish is chocolate and malts.

M - Medium body, good carbonation, creamy finish.

O - A nice stout, but I wish there was more oyster notes, as I'm a huge fan and I think it would work well with this beer. Not something I'd go after again, but still decent and glad I was able to try it.

Pours dark black with deep mocha head, pretty sticky. A bit of coffee and chocolate in the nose and some black licorice as well.

Taste is a bit sweet and the usual notes you get in a stout with a hint of salted caramels and certainly a bit briny in the finish, smoky too. Creamy taste with a slight hot aftertaste.

Nice stout, glad I tried it..

22oz bottle opened on 5.29.12.

A - Pours a very dark brown with a very small dark tan head that quickly moves to the edges.

S - Hard to pick-up much. Some chocolate and coffee finally come out.

T - Salty chocolate and some subtle coffee.

D - Lower carbonation and medium-heavy body.

O - Saltier and milder than expected. Pretty lackluster.

Bottle courtesy of Treebs opened on 5/23/12.

Appearance: Black with almost a finger of tan foam and some lace that lingers.

Smell: Fairly muted aroma. Getting some dark roasted malts and a little bit of chocolate.

Taste: Rich dark malts pair with a light chocolate notes and some smokiness. Not able to pinpoint the added dimension that oysters provide.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied that finished dry. Very easy drinking.

Overall: Expected something crazy based on the oysters, but still got the chance to try a solid stout. Not quite on the level of most things with the 3F name on it. Still above average.

First off, this beer has incredible artwork. It's very old timesy.

Tis collaborative stout pours a medium bodied dark chocolate brown in color with a one finger, creamy, one finger beige head. The nose is dry, very toasty, and has an odd earthiness. You can definitely tell that it's English in style. The flavors are very dry and toasty as well. There is bitter chocolate, Unsweetened baking chocolate, coffee roast, moderate bitterness, and a leafy, mossy earthy aspect. It kind of reminds me of Pretty Things Babayaga. There is a little more milk chocolate as it warms but make no mistake, this is a very, very dry stout. I mean my mouth is one dry between sips. It drinks medium in body with a bitter, toasty after taste. If I had to compare this to anything, it's like a mix of Belhaven Scottish Stout and Pretty Things Babayaga. It's nice for the style, just incredibly dry.

I enjoyed this beer on tap at Three Floyds on 5/14/12. This beer was served in a half pint glass.
A: Dark black with a 1 finger head of light caramel brown head leaving a fine trace of Bavarian lace.
S: Dark roasted grain and malt.
T: tang and effervescent. Not what you would expect from a stout. Lots of dark roasted grain.
M: Medium body with a good amount of carbonation.
O: A good stout, livelier than most.

Review from written notes.

Pours into a mini tulip glass with an ample head of tan foam, black body, with a lasting skim and sticky halo of lace that remains in the glass.

Roasty nose, dry bakers chocolate, a light underlying sweetness.

Unsweetened bittersweet chocolate chips, dry aftertaste with a long finish of dry roast and light hop bitterness. Medium to light bodied, clean and creamy feel. Very easy drinking, a wholesome porterish stout that incidentally contains oysters in the brewing process, not reflected in the final product. I love oysters, but there's no oyster flavor in here, let's not pretend.

Thanks to Lee for this one!

22 oz bottle, no bottled on date, poured into a snifter.

A- Pours nearly black, topped with a couple fingers of tan head, decent retention, leaves spotty lacing.

S- Big roasted aroma, I'm getting roasted grains, smoke, some coffee and chocolate.

T- Similar to the nose, big on the roasted grain, light coffee and chocolate flavors, lots of roasted and smoky flavors, has a mild salty brine flavor that comes out as the beer warms.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel, slightly dry finish.

O- A really nice beer, I'm a big fan of heavily roasted stouts so this was right up my alley, the oyster flavor works well but I would have liked it to be more powerful.

Poured from bomber into dimple glass mug. Pours dark brown with a nice one-finger tan head. Aromas of sweet stout, oat, light oyster sauce, and roasted malts. Flavors of roasted and sweet malt, wood, and brown sugar. Somewhat of a slight bitter taste in the back finish. Medium-thick mouthfeel with nice carbonation. Overall, an interesting stout but not one that blew the other two out of the water.

A- Pours a dark inky black liquid with a thin and creamy light brown head. Pretty nice looking.

S- Cocoa and a bit smoky. A bit one dimensional and simple.

T- Cocoa, smoke, coffee, with just a bit of saltiness on the finish. A simple stout. The saltiness becomes more apparent as it warms.

M- The carbonation is smooth and the roasty aspect definitely lingers. The saltiness is definitely interesting.

O- A well made stout but not all that interesting. That being said, it is definitely worth a purchase for the label artwork alone.
