March 19th, 2015 - The Oyster Stout has a wonderful place in beer history and trivia, but the historical legacy has been lost to a kind of tokenism about strange and curious beer flavors. Still, someone in the know can find the value in resurrecting a style that was an important link in the beer family tree. This collaboration has a curiously spicy aroma, with a soapiness and black licorice. It's odd, but good, too. The flavor is even better, like a malty, light porter, with a roughness in hops and a slight brininess.

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.
