3.43/5 rDev -0.3%
This poured out as a solid looking black color with a decent looking brown head on top. The head is foamy looking with a decent retention and lacing. The smell of the beer is earthy and lightly roasted. The taste of the beer is earthy, roasted and has a subtle tanginess to it. The mouthfeel of the beer pretty smooth, the carbonation is minimal but still strong enough to keep the beer interesting. It's not overly thick or heavy, it's actually quite drinkable. Overall this beer is good. Worth checking out in my opinion.

Thanks to Aaron for sharing.
The beer is cola brown with a beige head of broken bubbles. The aroma is of roast, brown bread, sea salt? Oyster character comes through fairly well. The feel is a bit thin and weak. Flavor is mediocre. Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

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.
