Bottle was purchased at The Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, VA
Poured and sampled from a DFH Signature Glass
A - Beer pours a dark brown, almost black color. Totally opaque. A half-finger, tan colored head that faded within a minute to a wisp on top of the beer. Little to no lacing left on the glass.
S - A roasted malt aroma. Nothing that says "wow".
T - I wasn't sure what to expect since this was brewed with oysters. The initial taste is of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and a slight metallic/tangy aftertaste with a tad of bitterness. A slight saltiness that is probably from the brine of the oysters. Honestly, if you didn't know it was brewed with oysters, you'd probably wouldn't guess this was different from a normal stout. The alcohol is not noticeable.
M - A thin to medium consistency. Lots of tangy carbonation.
O - Well, this was a first for me. Oysters and beer? Now that is a combination that most people would turn their nose up to. But this is a decent stout that really doesn't exhibit any off tastes from the addition of the oysters. It's an easy drinking, good tasting stout. Not the best stout I've ever had but I do have bragging rights saying I drank a beer made with a shellfish!

Love this beer. Not a style that is very approachable for the casual craft enthusiast. The appearance is a cloudy dark brown with a thick cream head. The smell was a mixture of sweetness from the malt and a little bit of hops. The taste however is very different. Starting out with the caramel and coffee and then at the end it was cut by the salty, fatty flavor of the oysters. I found it incredibly satisfying and refreshing. Not for the faint, but a wonderful find.
