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

A: Pours a deep mahogany with subtle garnet hues and a thin, quickly receding khaki mousse.

S: Aromas of caramel, molasses, roasted grain, dark chocolate, coffee, and vanilla bean are underscored by a faint brininess on the nose.

T: Briny oyster notes are pronounced on the entry, but are soon layered among notes of roasted grain, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, toffee, caramel, and vanilla bean. A combination of oyster, caramel, chocolate, and coffee carry over into the finish with a quick kiss of earthy, herbal hops just before the fade.

M: Medium in body and dry with crisp, pronounced carbonation. In many respects, this is more like a porter than a stout. It is easy to drink though. I could see this pairing well with oysters.

O: This is not a bad little stout. Oyster stouts generally don't do it for me, but this one really isn't bad. As a matter of fact, it's nice to see such an obscure style get some love from an American brewery.

I had low expectations for this one, so I was pretty surprised with it.

Appearance: FDB always has really cool bottles. The color of the beer itself is a very brown/blood red color. Sorta like Jagermeister.

Smell: not a bad smell. Don't think this is weird, but I kinda think it smells sorta like grilled meats.

Taste: a very surprising taste. Kinda spicy, kinda heavy, sorta syrupy. Not the best. Not the worst.

Mouthfeel: a little syrupy and heavy but still goes down pretty smooth

Overall: a decent beer. Way better than I thought it was gonna be. Worth a try.
