I couldn't ask for much more from an oyster stoudt. Great look. You can really taste the flavors. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I am.

Bottle poured into a nonic pint glass

A: Pours deep brown with a frothy khaki head that settles and laces lightly.

S: Roasted malt, dark fruit, and a little smoke.

T: Dark roasty malt, a little coffee, dark fruit, a touch of smoke, and some mineral-y twang.

M: Fairly light body, low to medium carbonation, but smooth.

O: This one isn't what I was hoping for to say the least. The body is a bit too thin to showcase what the oyster shell adds to it.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Poured dark black, opaque, with a half inch bubbly head, decent retention and lacing.
Smell: Chocolate, sweet roasty malts, and a slight hint of coffee.
Taste: Lots of dark roasted malt flavors, slight chocolate, a little smoky flavor and some light salty notes
Mouthfeel: Pretty thin and lightly carbonated.
Overall: didn't really get any of the oyster flavor I was expecting, just a slight briny saltiness. Still a decent stout though.

Opaque motor oil color. Roasty and caramelized malt aroma and flavor with a hint of brineyness.
