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.

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.

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.

On tap, this dark stout is very appealing; a nice head and warm, malty flavors. Fortunately doesn't hit you in the head w/ high alcohol content.
