3.45/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Clear dark and nearly black colored ale with a thin brown colored head.

Smell is strong patent malt and smoke with a whiff of ocean to it. Chocolate and coffee a little molasses that represents all the malt I can smell.

Starts out dry and slightly metallic and salty in the mouth. Taste a little sweeter than it smells. Coffee and slight chocolate.

Mouthfeel is fairly thin for the style.

Overall it is OK, but I won't be buying this again.

P- wegmans in Mechanicsburg

A- dark black with a roasted toffee like head. one finger max and runs away quickly but the lacing is pretty decent. Straight line around the pint. opaque as well.

S- dark chocolate and roasted toffee malts with hints of wood smoke of oak maybe.

F- I don't detect the strong oyster flavor that some are saying but I do get a briny ocean taste. The roasted toffee malts are more pronounced and the dark chocolate comes to the front as well.

M- a heavy stout indeed and it has some viscosity to it. The flavors linger in the mouth and the follow down the throat. pretty decent. in a stout.

O- an above average stout and I was hesitant at first because of the 'oyster' in the name but it is really tasty.
