A- caramel, coffee, pours into a glass smoothly with a mild head, lighter color at the bottom but that could be the glass (this is my first beer review).
S- Caramel for sure. The sea salt aroma blowing in the wind on the rocks on the ocean shore on Hog Island, and some vegetal notes as well. Another reviewer said he's 'straining to get a good sense of the aroma'
T- Coffee, toffee, cayenne, oyster shell fruit jelly.
M- Smooth with a gentle fuzz that burps up later. Could use a little more body.
Happy I was able to try this beer and I certainly recommend it. The alcohol from this one is creeping up on me. I'm just starting to get 'into beer'. Thanks for reading!

Poured from a 12 oz can into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Smells of coffee and slight chocolate. Tastes of chocolate with a chocolately aftertaste. Beer goes down smooth full body real creamy. Overall, a very good beer.

Straight from the can. Turns the rim of the can nice and dark. Strong coffee/chocolate flavor that melts into lighter roasted notes that finishes between a perfect blend of sweet and bitter. Oyster flavor is not apparent, or either contributes in a manner I am unable to pick up in. Overall impression is this is a very tasty easy drinking stout that helps me melt into the couch on a nice brisk fall evening, don't really care if I can't taste oysters because it taste so damn good without any sliminess.

sampling a cellar temp can poured into a snifter.
The beer pours a rich chocolate brown color with creamy tan head foaming up about 2 cm even with a gentle pour.
Aroma is dry cocoa and some light toffee mixed with just a hint of earthy hops. A little bit of plum or prune notes too. Mostly dry baker's chocolate though, no salty brine or anything like that from oyster shells.
First sip reveals a nice smooth texture with gentle rolling carbonation. Easy drinking beer.
Flavor is similar to nose advertisements with cocoa powder and roast malt and a little sweet toffee. Finish is slightly bitter but more coffee ground than hops, although again there are some earthy hops that come through after each swallow.
Well made easy to drink beer with no hints of the 7.9% ABV listed on the can.

Not sure why, but I wasn't really expecting that much from this beer. As it turned out, it was a nice surprise. Fair amount of bitterness, just the right amount of dryness, some bitter chocolate tastes, and more complexity than you'd think. It looks great in the glass, and it drinks so easily. Yes, it gets a little more substantial as it warms, and from what I remember quite a bit so, but it still is a nicely balanced beer. Nice surprise.
