Sampling a cellar temp 12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.
The beer pours a rich dark chocolate color with creamy tan head of 1 cm foaming up even with a gentle pour. Some sticky tightly packed lattice on the glass. The head fades to a thin partial surface layer.
Aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate notes and some dry coffee notes. No hints of booze or hops that I can really pick up on this brew.
First sip reveals a smooth textured beer with average to slightly thicker body.
Very fine tingly carbonation rolls across my palate on each sip.
Flavor is roasted malt and dark chocolate. I think it is a little dry on the finish but no real hints of booze. Im not sure if the dryness is imparted by the oysters or if they do something else that I am missing. A nice solid drinkable stout with a fairly high ABV at 7.5%. I would buy this again even though im not sure what the oysters add to the beer.

12oz bottle, drink by 1/8/2015. Poured into a snifter glass 10/28/2014.

A- Dark black, oily and thick body with a one finger mocha head, long retention time. Nice moderate film left over after some time. Splotches of lacing. Looks quite dark and thick. [4]

S- Lots of roast malt, dark chocolate, baker's cocoa. Very roasty, not all that complex, but intensely roasty and chocolate-forward nose with some umami soy-like scents. [3.75]

F- Roast, dark chocolate, a hint of dark fruit, cocoa, a bit of umami and bitter earthiness on the finish. Nice complexity to this stout. As in the nose, very roasty and moderately sweet with an appropriate earthy bitterness on the finish. [4]

M- Medium bodied, just the right amount of carbonation. A bit silky and resinous; coats the palate with an earthy bitterness. Could be the oysters, who knows? But it's certainly earthy and mild-moderately bitter. Very nice drinker. [4]

O- I was surprised by how rich and flavourful this beer is. The finish is a bit too earthy and bitter but this is a very nice drinking oyster stout. Not sure where the oysters come into play, but my guess is that it's adding to the finish more than anything else. The malts have a great presence without being too cloyingly sweet. [4]

Final score: 3.95
