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.

LOOK: Dark brown, off white head with lots of very tiny bubbles.

SMELL: Roasted malt and some smoke, very smokey and almost meaty. Cream, and it could be psychological but I detect a whiff of salt water.

TASTE: Malty, with lots of roast and coffee flavor. Not much to indicate the oyster shells used in brewing besides a savory note. This is much like a standard Irish dry stout. As it warms nothing really changes all that much.

FEEL: Medium to full bodied, smooth from the nitro addition.

OVERALL: A good little stout here. Lends itself well to be a nitro beer. A fine craft offering without a doubt. Older style done well by the mega craft brewery. There is a place in the world for a beer like this, it's called your local bar.
