3.55/5 rDev -3.8%
Dark brown - nearly black - with a thin khaki head which quickly drops to a film. No lace.
Scent is mildly briney with charred breadcrusts and a hint of chocolate. Molasses?
Taste is similar. There is a subtle mineral flavor and a little brine from the oysters. Charred breadcrust, roasty chocolate malt. Seems like there is just a touch of molasses in there but i'm not sure; not so much a sweetness but a flavor.
Not a bad stout.

Poured into a perfect pint.
3.25 A: Dark brown color. Two fingers of foamy tan head. Retention is about average and not really any lacing is left.
3.75 S: Moderate roastiness. Brine from the oysters. Some caramel sweetness, but dry overall. Mineral and graininess. Fairly simple, but quite pleasant.
3.5 T: Tastes like the nose. Moderate roastiness with just a touch of ash. Dry, but with notes of caramel and chocolate. Mineral, grain, brine.
3.25 M: Lighter medium body. A bit more carbonation than I'd like, but good enough. Lacking creaminess, but otherwise okay.
3.5 D: I'm not sure if I've ever had a stellar oyster stout, but they always seem to be pretty good. They intrigue me.

355ml bottle from Brewdog.com (£3.49):
Black with amedium brown head that halves in size and stays as a thin, very slightly patchy one.
Light, sweet chocolate and some roasted malts with a hint of coffee. I could detect some cocoa and a definite hint of smoke.
Sweet malts and a lot of chocolate with a hint of coffee again. The taste is pretty basic with some sugar and a few earthy notes.
Light medium and smooth with a slightly creamy feel. There is a definite dry texture to the beer and some sweetness as well.
Pretty disappointing to be honest and not a beer I would recommend, not because it was a bad stout but because it was so basic throughout. Whilst drinkable this one was just a little too bland to really enjoy.

A: Pours black with a finger of light khaki head that fades into a thin ring with little lacing.
S: Roasted malts with semi-sweet chocolate and creamy coffee aromas dominate. There are some sweeter, floral notes underneath.
T: Roasted malts here as with with more bitter chocolate flavors. There are notes of char, brine, and a hint of smoke. The finish is clean and lightly bitter.
M: Body is on the heavier side of moderate with medium carbonation, this beer has just enough carbonation to avoid being watery.
O: a solid beer, overall. Not terribly complex, but enjoyable and drinkable.
