first and for all this beer is called oyster stout because the wort is poured over oyster scales
during the brewing process

A: dark brown colour, off white head

S: burnt malts, hints of sea air

T: rather sweet, , burnt malts are there, not much else

M: medium body, low on carbonation (ok for a stout)

O: not really my cup of tea, not a lot of character, a tad too sweet, but not bad

It's definitely back, as the bottle advertises, and it's not letting any light through. The medium brown head grows large, over two fingers off the top, but it's sparsely-bubbled and looks a little spritzy. Having grown that large, however, when it drops down it's condensed to a heavy thickness and density, sitting right around one finger tall. The lacing is downright thick and heavy as well, and clings stubbornly, leaving little of the glass uncovered as it goes.
There's an earthiness and an interesting intense minerality. I've set it aside and done some other things since pouring, and now I'm reminded that it's an oyster stout. Other than that, barley with a little sweetness to it makes the malt base. It may be a touch heavy on the oyster, the notes of which mute the other qualities found.
What I assume may be Belgian yeast makes for an unusual contrast. Malts bring just a hint of roast with a tinge of sweetness, but the heard brine and minderal aspects of the oyster seem to be a bit too much in this beer. It's not undrinkable, but i have to let it sit for more roast to come out of it. It's not bad overall.
The feel goes a little thin for a stout. It's not quite as robust as the label boasts. It's got a sizeable body for sure, but still sits in the medium range. Alcohol sneaks in somewhere and goes into a finish that draws out some powdery dryness.
