12 oz.

Pours jet black with a half inch light tan head which dissipates to a lacing.

Smells mildly briny and of chocolate and buttered bread malts.

Tastes of oats, mild cocoa, light non-acidic coffee and some caramel. Also, salty.

Medium to light but viscous body with light tingles of carbonation over in the tongue and in the back of the throat.

Not bad. My second oyster stout and I'm starting to respect the style. Wish it had a little more body, but given the strength it's not unexpected. Overall, good balance and enjoyable finish. Might have this again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - black, opaque, barely a head, no lacing

S - smokey, roasted, salty, charcoal

T - smokey charcoal, salty, roasted finish, dark chocolate, maybe a hint of oysters

M - smooth and rather medium bodied for a stout

O - this is a fine stout, very mild bodied and smooth for a stout, drinkable, nice smokey and salt characters both for smell and taste. The hint of oysters is ever so subtle but extremely nice to pair with the smokey and salt flavors.

First beer I bought in Maryland from my relocation from Oregon. Was interested in trying something new the the "Oyster" aspect triggered my interest. I brought it home and when I pored it it was had a nice off white head. Smelled like a typical stout, but had a light roasted malt smell that I am used to. The oysters are pretty noticeable and the beer had a slimy finish... I was pretty dissatisfied in the overall quality of the beer... with the sliminess and the lack of a backbone, I would not buy it again.

BBD 226/14. Pours used motor oil black with a nice head. Outstanding lacing and average retention. Nice nose of chocolate, anise and roast over a slight salty sea note. Light medium bodied with a smooth texture that approaches slick. Below average carbonation with almost no effervescence on the finish. Extremely well balanced flavor profile that has some complexity, but is not as intense as Bell's Kalamazoo or FBS. It begins with a chocolate note that flows into a slight roast bitterness. Underneath is a very subtle saltiness. The finish is smooth and the finish leaves you with a lingering chocolate bitterness and a touch of salt.
