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.

A- dark black with a roasted toffee like head. one finger max and runs away quickly but the lacing is pretty decent. Straight line around the pint. opaque as well.
S- dark chocolate and roasted toffee malts with hints of wood smoke of oak maybe.
F- I don't detect the strong oyster flavor that some are saying but I do get a briny ocean taste. The roasted toffee malts are more pronounced and the dark chocolate comes to the front as well.
M- a heavy stout indeed and it has some viscosity to it. The flavors linger in the mouth and the follow down the throat. pretty decent. in a stout.
O- an above average stout and I was hesitant at first because of the 'oyster' in the name but it is really tasty.
