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.

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.
