Love this beer. Not a style that is very approachable for the casual craft enthusiast. The appearance is a cloudy dark brown with a thick cream head. The smell was a mixture of sweetness from the malt and a little bit of hops. The taste however is very different. Starting out with the caramel and coffee and then at the end it was cut by the salty, fatty flavor of the oysters. I found it incredibly satisfying and refreshing. Not for the faint, but a wonderful find.

3.68/5  rDev -0.3%

A - black, opaque, barely a head, no lacing

S - smokey, roasted, salty, charcoal

T - smokey charcoal, salty, roasted finish, dark chocolate, maybe a hint of oysters

M - smooth and rather medium bodied for a stout

O - this is a fine stout, very mild bodied and smooth for a stout, drinkable, nice smokey and salt characters both for smell and taste. The hint of oysters is ever so subtle but extremely nice to pair with the smokey and salt flavors.

First beer I bought in Maryland from my relocation from Oregon. Was interested in trying something new the the "Oyster" aspect triggered my interest. I brought it home and when I pored it it was had a nice off white head. Smelled like a typical stout, but had a light roasted malt smell that I am used to. The oysters are pretty noticeable and the beer had a slimy finish... I was pretty dissatisfied in the overall quality of the beer... with the sliminess and the lack of a backbone, I would not buy it again.
