I got this one in the Flying Dog variety pack.
Served in a FFF shaped glass.
A: Poured a burnt sienna brown, with a nice 1.5 finger peppery, mocha head that stuck around throughout the session.
S: Smelled so roasty that if I were to sniff this without knowing the style beforehand, I would have tagged this as a porter. A tinge of sweet, sourdough mixed in there as well.
T: More coffee-like than chocolate due to the particular brand of bitterness. It had a nice flavor that was not watered down in any way. As a matter of fact, I was pretty amazed at how full the flavor was.
M: Grainy and bitter, which affects its drinkability to my mind slightly and I noticed it was starting to wear on me about 6oz. in. However, I guess this is more of a savory type of brew, so that goes with the territory, I guess.
O: I've always consider Flying Dog to be one of those "neither totally pleasing nor offending" breweries that surprises the hell out of me at times. I'd consider this one a pleasant surprise.

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.
