A: The beer is nearly jet black in color—traces of amber are visible near the bottom of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a finger high beige head that gradually died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacy rings down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of chocolate malts are present in the nose, which also has some hints of roasted malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but has stronger flavors of chocolate malts with hints of coffee beans and roasted malts and finally some brine in the aftertaste. Neither sweetness nor bitterness is detectable.
M: It feels light-bodied and airy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer a lot less briney flavors compared to other oyster stouts but is a nice stout in itself, especially if you are looking for something light and has lots of flavors of chocolate malts.

ST: 12oz can poured into a pint glass.

A: Dark, near black with a red tints and a half-a-fingernail slightly brown head.

S: Cream, mineral, smoke, burnt malt, creamy coffee.

T: Starts with sweet chocolate nibs, then dark bitter chocolate with a hint of smoke and coffee, followed by sweet grilled oyster, and it finishes with a slight bitterness and the taste of gritty oyster shell.

M: Medium, smooth, creamy, dry on the finish.

O: A very tasty beer with a slight hard edge of mineral bordering on metal. Balanced well, the sweetness does not overtake the beer. This is a great stout.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark brown/black, tan head, nice thick lacing

S: Chocolaty, otherwise not a lot else jumping out.

T: Chocolate, dry, coffee, malty.

M: lively carbonation, creamy but thin. Nice full feel. But does not linger like some stouts.

O: Nice with a meal, but not as strong a stand alone beer as some of the other stouts this season. Glad I tried it, but not going to be a staple.

Can into Snifter
Pours a white head, very dark body. Chocolate dominates the nose. The mouthfeel is very thin, drinks more like a low 5% rather than a stout just shy of 8%. I can't detect the oyster, but a bitter chocolate taste is definitely there. Very drinkable, especially considering the alc/vol. 21st Ammendment is a solid brewery and this reinforces my belief.

12 oz can.

Pours jet black, brownish tint around the very edge of the glass where light barely penetrates. Light tan head is fine and dissipate slowly from about an eighth of an inch.

Smells of light roasted coffee malts and pickled olives.

Tastes of caramel and roasted malts, oak wood notes, and mild brine saltiness.

Medium to full body with a light effervescence.

A solid oyster stout, good flavor balance, not too rich. If you don't like oyster stouts, you won't like this, but if you do, this is one of the better ones out there that is readily available in the US.
