Enjoyed a few bombers of this collabo between the Floyds and HA.

Poured into an oversized snifter.

Black in color with a thin ring of light tan head that sits patiently. There is some spotty lacing that clings.

The nose has a lot of roasted malts working and there is a small amount of a brine aroma that is the only resemblance of an oyster or anything seafood for that matter.

The taste is basically a roast bomb. Toasted malts, bitter chocolate, and some espresso make up the enjoyable flavors of this one. If the term "oyster stout" makes you question the integrity of this beer, it is unnecessary. There aren't any oyster shells floating in here either so its good in my book.

The mouthfeel is a bit on the lighter side but is still in the medium range. The carbonation is ample and suits the style fine.

Overall, this was a pretty tasty and drinkable stout from the MidWest Monsters, 3 Floyds and Half Acre. Drinkable and interestingly tasty for sure. If you are in the Munster area, stop by for a pint or a bomber. (1,028 characters)

Poured from a 22oz bomber into two pint glasses. Thanks to pops for the assist. Extra special thanks to the crew at HA for the hook up!

A: Pours jet black with a thinnish yet creamy layer of light khaki colored foam. Retention was decent with some specks of lace left behind for good measure.

S: Roasty malt. Vague dark chocolate/cocoa aromas but roastiness is the name of the game here.

T: See above with some light mineral/metallic tones.

M: Pretty dry and a little ashy. Nice toastiness leads into a finish that sports a slight tang when it warms.

O: Interesting experiment with the bivalves. Glad we were able to try it. (630 characters)

Very dark, basically black. Nice tan head with retention. Some lacing. Looks like a proper stout.

Not much on the aroma. Some roasted malts.

Taste is light roasted malt with a slight sweetness.  Kinda falls flat on flavor. It's not that it tastes bad it's just pretty bland. Firm hop bitterness. Slight tang to it as it warms. 

Thick mouthfeel, full bodied. 

Okay beer overall. Nothing special. Didn't really get anything related to the oyster used in the brew. (470 characters)
