3.6/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance - Pours black with dark ruby highlights where light can penetrate. The head is off-white, about a finger thick with sub-par retention.
Smell - Roasted malts in the form of a mocha aroma. Oyster comes through with a subtle, underlying quality.
Taste - Roasted coffee and dark chocolate dominate the flavor. A bit of smokiness comes through on the back end. The oyster comes though, very lightly, in the aftertaste. Not much variance from start to finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Smooth. Somewhat creamy. Very drinkable.
Overall - A pretty typical stout. I can't believe I'm writing this, but where's the oyster? Ahh, there it is, very subtle at the end, after the beer warms. This is my first stout brewed with oyster, so I wasn't sure what to expect coming in. Outside the aroma, it's nearly non-existent. Is this a good thing? Guess I'll have to give other oyster stouts a go to find out.
