Another brew that survived my wreck! Served from bottle into New Belgium globe. Poured dark reddish brown with a one finger light tan head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark fruit, dark chocolate, and subtle brine. The flavor was of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, earth, and very subtle brine. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. If you handed this to me blind I doubt I would have been able to tell you it was an oyster stout if I'm honest. The brine is there in a way, but it is so subtle it is almost non-existent. The other aspects going on here were not too bad however. Definitely easy to drink and decently enjoyable.
