12oz bottle into EBC becker.

Pours a nearly opaque black/red with a big fluffy tan head. Smells like smoky wet chocolate bread, perhaps a hint of saltiness? Taste has lots of smoky chocolate and a hint of something else that is hard to describe and what I can only assume is a hint of salt from the oysters. Carbonation is pretty chill as espected per style and lets some of the subtle flavors emerge.

Very nice stout with a difficult to place extra through in to distinguish it from the crowd.

Love this beer. Not a style that is very approachable for the casual craft enthusiast. The appearance is a cloudy dark brown with a thick cream head. The smell was a mixture of sweetness from the malt and a little bit of hops. The taste however is very different. Starting out with the caramel and coffee and then at the end it was cut by the salty, fatty flavor of the oysters. I found it incredibly satisfying and refreshing. Not for the faint, but a wonderful find.

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.
