look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.

Serving type: can

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

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Canned on 11/19/12.

Appearance: Very dark brown, basically black, body with a silky two finger tan head.

Aroma: Generic stout dark malt. Not much there but pretty typical for the style if memory serves.

Taste: Very classic english stout flavor. Lots of semi-bitter dark malt giving some cocoa and coffee bean flavor. Mixes well with a light grassy/earthy hop character that doesn't extend much bitterness. Some metallic off flavor in there but possibly to be expected given the year its spent in a can. Not really getting anything from the oyster shells but I wasn't expecting much. Finish is lively with a good hop kick and the aftertaste is very dry with dark malt flavor. Not super robust for 7.9% ABV but not mild either.

Mouthfeel: A medium consistency with good carbonation and easy drinkability. Smooth body and feel.

Final Thoughts: As far as oyster/english stouts go, this one was pretty much right on the mark but not all the interesting. Would I drink it again? Maybe.

Serving type: can
