It was a good beer but there was some level of flavor noticeably missing.

Attractive near black brew with a surprising off-white foam in the tall Petrus goblet. Aroma is raisins and chocolate.

This makes me think of a Baltic Stout, and with the strong alcohol that's the category I would have put it in. Winey and rich, rather sweet and far from the typical English Stout. Whatever this is, it's a deep and darkly roasted malt extravaganza. Hops are minimal.

A tasty big dark brew, but one to sip. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Barons Marketplace in San Diego for nine bucks.

A really good stout. Silky smooth and chocolaty, a notable spiciness is present as you keep drinking. There is only a faint earthiness present from the oysters, where I had been hoping for more from this ingredient. In comparison, an oyster stout like porterhouse's is much grainier/earthier/saltier and elevated by the addition of the oysters. An enjoyable stout, though, irregardless.
