On nitro tap as "Mother Shucker" at NoDa Brewing.
“Robust, full-bodied stout with a coastal twist: fresh Stump Sound oysters. Shells added in the mash provide calcium and minerals that enhance mouthfeel, and oyster meat added to the boil contribute a subtle savory and briny character. A NoDa Brewing Co. collaboration with FSB for NC Beer month. 6.6%” (FSB)

Pour is nearly all head that soon enough transforms into a large creamy tan head over a near black body. Deep, dark mahogany highlights at the edge reveal a clear beer. The sides of the glass are thoroughly coated with a thin layer of sticky tan foam.

Aroma: excellent; a model for the style. Loads of dark and chocolate roasted malts with a light oyster aspect.

T: Loads of dark and very dark roasted malts with a trace of smoke. Hints of dark chocolate and briny oysters. Marred by on overly bitter aftertaste.

M: medium-light body with very soft nitro carbonation.

O: Flawed aftertaste in this otherwise excellent example of the style. Still worth seeking out.

Serving type: nitro-tap
