look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-nice deep black with a nice white/tan head
S-great deep coffee roasted malt, chocolate, mild vanilla. Didn't smell anything associated with oyster
T- rich toasted malt up front, dry coca, light vanilla finish that fades quickly to a dry almost iron like finish

M-strong flavors And carbonation on the front of the tounge, body fades fast halfway across and almost nothing on the end.

O-was a bit nervous at first to try out a oyster stout, not being sure what was In store for me. I found it to be easily Approachable and tasted more like a stout than anything. I think the oysters play more so into the finish than anything and just add a bit of iron/saltiness.

Overall good beer in my eyes

On tap at Old Town in Greensboro yesterday.Poured a deep color with some deep ruby hue to it,a thinner khaki colored head atop.Chocolate malts and dark roast in the nse mainly,I didn't get much briney flavors compared to many of the style wich didn't bother me much.Chocolate flavors with a little saline flavor to go along with hefty roast.Lighter but pretty creamy in the feel,probably something that would go well thru the nitro tap.Not bad it isn't over the top in it's oyster/brine flavors.

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

LOOK: Black, opaque, tiny bubbled tan head

SMELL: Dark caramel, faint ocean, mineral, dark chocolate, soft charcoal, sweet

TASTE: Very smooth, medium bodied, burnt sugar, soft charcoal, mild salt, creamy, cocoa powder, restrained hopping, earthy, chicory, semi-sweet roasty finish

Great balance from start to finish, very subtle oyster shell flavor which works quite well. This beer lingers on the palate, wish I had a dozen Island Creek oysters right now ... on its own still a lot of fun.

12 ounce bottle, without any freshness/bottling date/consume before- type of information.

The pour appears to be pretty close to black, under a dark tan head. Head goes to the expected film, collar, some slippery low sheeting and just a few bits of lacing sticking around.

Prominent roasty nose, with some chocolate and a earthyness/mustyness.

Velvety smooth and pleasing in the mouth. Flavorfully flowing over the taste receptors. More roasted malts with a slight sensation of the briny depths. Lite chocolate comes through again. Tasty stout with a slight edge on complexity compared to the run of the mill stout. Well worth a try.
