Got a bottle of this without knowing at first what "BB" stood for - thought it was bourbon barrel when I opened it and then was confused by the lack of bourbon smell. Looked it up to learn it's "Bulls Bay".

Pours nearly black with a substantial dark tan head. Smell is roasted malt, coffee, a little chocolate - very solid without any one element overpowering. Taste is similar with a little of the oyster brininess coming through. As the beer warmed it got a little saltier and a little drier, which was a cool twist. I think this is the third oyster stout I've had and I really like the concept and effect.

I'd put this beer just over "medium" in terms of body - a very good structure for all the flavors going on here. Almost no trace of alcohol but tons of flavor, which is always a great combination. Overall a great beer that I will seek out when I return to Charleston.
