This had a black body and it poured with a massive, super sticky, khaki colored head.

Massive roast on the nose, deep, dark, and charred. Maybe a little brine and sulfur. Taste is more of the same. Huge roasty malts that leave a lingering ashy chocolate note in their wake. Just a trace of sulfur and brine is found at the finish. The abundant roastiness makes this more American than English to me, but that doesn't really matter. This is damn good beer, that's what matters. Proceeds from the sale of this beer help seed the Chesapeake Bay. Kudos to Flying Dog.

Here's a go at my first oyster stout. Nice dark body. Thick tan foam. So far good. Very chocolaty smell. Some smoked aromas. Glad it doesn't smell like the sea. Wow, what a bitter taste. Dark chocolate flavors, coffee, toffee. Little mineral flavor. Again, glad it doesn't have a fishy taste. Its a little too bitter for my stout liking, but much better than I thought it would be. ADDITIONAL INFO: Well, by the end of the glass, it got kind of oystery. A little to powerful for me. I enjoyed the first half, not the second.
