Nice pitch black color. Dark brown edges. Nice light brown lace.
Salty, briny aroma with a nice roast and chocolate.
Chocolate, roasted malts and a salty finish.
Not sure what they mean by imperial, but I don't think it's an imperial stout. It's medium at best, but nice and creamy.
This is a great oyster stout... Andygator is bottled due to the Abita homebrew contest... so this homebrew contest winning brew, being miles better than the gator, deserves it's spot as a big bottled Abita brew.
Come on Abita!!!

A: The beer is near black in color but has traces of dark amber when it is held up to the light. It poured with a thin off white layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are aromas of oysters in the nose along with notes of roasted malts.
T: The taste has flavors of roasted malts and toffee along with hints of sweetness and chocolate. There is a bit more maltiness compared to other oyster stouts.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a bit of dryness in the finish.
O: The beer is relatively easy to drink and goes down smoothly.

Poured into a pint glass pitch black, with a creamy off-white head.
Smells of sweet toasty malts, and dark caramel.
The taste is of burnt and roasted barley with a peppery bite of carbonic acid. The backbone of this brew is a sweet an syrupy flavor with similar caramel notes to the aroma. Medium-thick body with a viscous and silky mouthfel.
Good, but lacks depth.

Abita Oyster Stout
A Black in color, tan head, good lacing
S Faint chickory coffee
T Pretty good chocolate milky malty goodness.
M Creamy mouthfeel, nice chickory aftertaste.
O Very pleased, creamy and delicious but not overbearingly heavy, which would be good if one wasn't into the heavies. Had on tap at Frillys in Denton.
