3.76/5 rDev +1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
LOOK: Dark brown, off white head with lots of very tiny bubbles.
SMELL: Roasted malt and some smoke, very smokey and almost meaty. Cream, and it could be psychological but I detect a whiff of salt water.
TASTE: Malty, with lots of roast and coffee flavor. Not much to indicate the oyster shells used in brewing besides a savory note. This is much like a standard Irish dry stout. As it warms nothing really changes all that much.
FEEL: Medium to full bodied, smooth from the nitro addition.
OVERALL: A good little stout here. Lends itself well to be a nitro beer. A fine craft offering without a doubt. Older style done well by the mega craft brewery. There is a place in the world for a beer like this, it's called your local bar.
Serving type: nitro-tap

3.56/5 rDev -3.5%

A: Pours a deep mahogany with subtle garnet hues and a thin, quickly receding khaki mousse.
S: Aromas of caramel, molasses, roasted grain, dark chocolate, coffee, and vanilla bean are underscored by a faint brininess on the nose.
T: Briny oyster notes are pronounced on the entry, but are soon layered among notes of roasted grain, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, toffee, caramel, and vanilla bean. A combination of oyster, caramel, chocolate, and coffee carry over into the finish with a quick kiss of earthy, herbal hops just before the fade.
M: Medium in body and dry with crisp, pronounced carbonation. In many respects, this is more like a porter than a stout. It is easy to drink though. I could see this pairing well with oysters.
O: This is not a bad little stout. Oyster stouts generally don't do it for me, but this one really isn't bad. As a matter of fact, it's nice to see such an obscure style get some love from an American brewery.

I had low expectations for this one, so I was pretty surprised with it.
Appearance: FDB always has really cool bottles. The color of the beer itself is a very brown/blood red color. Sorta like Jagermeister.
Smell: not a bad smell. Don't think this is weird, but I kinda think it smells sorta like grilled meats.
Taste: a very surprising taste. Kinda spicy, kinda heavy, sorta syrupy. Not the best. Not the worst.
Mouthfeel: a little syrupy and heavy but still goes down pretty smooth
Overall: a decent beer. Way better than I thought it was gonna be. Worth a try.
