definitely my favorite flying dog brew to date. brewed with Chesapeake bay oysters? who would have thought? velvety looking black color, cocoa powder aromatics oozing out, bubbly and dense tan head, black licorice and tobacco on the nose as well. I don't smell fish at all, and this doesn't taste salty. instead I get bittersweet roasted barley, chocolate malt, and faint espresso notes. the texture is what makes this beer for me, creamy and rich, while retaining its drinkability. nice as an after dinner session beer, or as an interesting conversation piece. im not usually a huge fan of flying dog, but this beer really steps it up in both creativity and execution. worth seeking out. any other good oyster beers out there? how did this start? I want to know more...

Glassware: English Pint Glass

Aroma: Sweet malts, chocolate, a bit of coffee.
