3.49/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Deep brown with a faint ring of head around the edge - surprised how little there is here. Pretty unassuming.

Malty, roasty, with just a hint of salty brine.

Like you'd expect from a relatively stout, but with the added interest of the oysters - they add a salty brininess that can likely only come from an oyster stout. It's a unique addition, one that might be better suited when paired with a bowl of oyster stew than a cold November night.

Very little carbonation jumped out at me early on - just enough to spark the tongue and leave it to soak in the saltiness.

Take it or leave it. Having never had an oyster stout in the past, I can't tell whether I just don't like the style or this particular beer. Either way, I can do better.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed this bottle out of a standard pint glass.

A: Pours a dark black hue with a very thin brown ½-finger head that quickly dissipates and leaves no lace or trail.

S: Not a huge nose here – toasted malts and chocolate aroma.

T: Smooth mild roasted malts and background tastes of coffee, caramel, and chocolate.

M: Very smooth, medium body and minimal carbonation.

O: Decent stout. No one flavor or aroma stands out and takes control of this brew.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

22 oz bottle, bottling date of "Oct '12" listed on the label.

pours opaque black in color, just a little off-white head. a few ruby highlights. Pretty mild aroma, a little coffee-like smell.

taste has a bit of cola flavor, caramel. slightly sweet, just slightly roasty. lingering aftertaste. thin to medium body, lower carbonation. Could definitely be a bit thicker to improve the mouthfeel.

overall - not bad, but I like my stouts to have a bit more aggressive roasty flavors.
