This pours a very dark brown/black color with a slight off-white head. The aroma is slightly malty and robust. The taste is light and roust with a fairly thin texture. Overall this is a pretty light in taste and texture stout that drinks very easily.

Poured a blackish body with minimal tan head that dies slow with minor lace. I get a little sweetness in the aroma but even that is more bitter chocolate than anything. Some large chunks of roasted malt and a splash of coffee also hit me in the nose. The beer is medium to heavy bodied, slightly chewey. enjoyable sipper but a mostly dry stout with roasted malts ( and again I get this coffee thing) dominating and just minor bitter chocolate notes mixed in. The finish seems a little grainy so I suppose this is where the oyster kick is which isn't bad as it isn't burdensome and lends itself to the beer. Also seems to have a touch of wood since it goes down smooth. Not a bad stout at all but one that is a little simple for my liking.

A - Dark brown bordering on black with a small brown head. Good lace.

S - Roasty. Dark chocolate and espresso. There are no fishy oyster aromas like I expected.

T - All bitter chocolate up front with espresso and oysters at the super-dry finish. More oyster flavors build in the aftertaste.

M - Medium bodied, malty, and super dry at the finish.

O - Not as odd as I thought. This is my first oyster stout and I like it. Extremely dry at the finish aster a good progression of flavors.
