look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Had it on tap at Alewife in Baltimore on 11/15.

A - Dark brown/almost black color with a tan head that fades to a thin layer. Very nice lacing.

S - Smell of roasted malts (coffee perhaps) and a bit of earthiness.

T - One delicious brew. Taste of coffee and other roasted malts with a unique earthy (slightly briny as well) taste that I can only presume came from the oysters. It's a little sweet, but not overly so. Well-balanced in the taste.

M - Medium bodied, very smooth and drinkable. Nice finish and aftertaste. It's not as thick as say a RIS, but the body is more than acceptable.

O - I found the Pearl Necklace to be a great and unique beer. It is well balanced and easily drinkable. The oysters provide some interesting earth and brine notes that accentuate the beer without overwhelming it. Well done, and I only wish that it'll be widely available in the coming months. Great beer for a great charity.
