perhaps one of the stranger beers ive ever seen or tasted, a stout type brewed with cocoa and actual maine lobsters. i can imagine sam here dropping live lobsters into the kettle, oyster stout style, and its both haunting and hilarious in different ways. the resulting beer is an interesting product, dark and bitter from all the grain, heavy and slick in the feel from the protein of the fish, and honestly fishy and briny in the end, but never gross like a can of sardines. its more of a mellow fishiness, like actual lobster meat, sweet and buttery even without the drawn butter. the stout though is really bitter, so there is a contrast there, and all the body without much carbonation makes it a little tough to get through even a short pour. still, while i dont really want to drink this beer, i have to respect it for what it is. i know there are some who are down on the dogfishs and the mikkellers of the world for unbridled experimentation, often to the point of absurdity, but not me. you never know until you know, and now we know...
