Poured from 12oz can into nonic pint glass.

Appearance: Opaque black- no light coming through when held up to light. Large browned head has a lot of staying power and leaves behind a thick ring of lace when it does dissipate.

Smell: Roasted chocolate and dark fruit aromas backed up by just a touch of herbal hop aromas.

Taste: Begins with a light grassy touch, rounding out to chocolatey and burnt malt flavors. Finish has a bit more herbalness and is even more chocolatey. There is a slight metallic flavor toward the end which dtracts, but luckily is very fleeting.

Mouthfeel: Thicker body with just enough carbonation. Finish is thick and a bit oily.

Overall: This is a very good stout, but it's missing something to make it outstanding. Worth a try, and worth drinking again, but nothing to go out to find.

A: Thick black with a beautiful thin tan head.

S: Malt. Lots of Malt.

T: Chocolatey, and super malty. Sort of tastes salty/earthy but it's hard to explain without having an oyster stout. As far as the style goes this stuff is top notch.

M: Thick and delicious.

O: A great oyster stout. If you haven't had this style yet, seek one out; quite unique and delicious.

Poured can into snifter, nice looking , no notes so I could be skimming on this.
Smell was fantastic- dark fruits , briny tang, caramel malts
Taste is fantastic- don't know if this is best oyster stout tried but it's one of the tastiest stouts definitely has malt upfront raisins- chocolate with a nice tang from the oysters.
Mouthfeel seems spot on - medium bodied. Nice finish with carbonation right.
Heartily recommend
