picked this up back in september at the brewpub.

A: no light comes through this one, nice tan head that lasted the whole glass.

S: roasted malt, smells like the sea, a little sweetness but not much.

T: wow this was surprising, thick but very nice, again very malty sweetness and a little bitter but barely any at all.

M: a little watery at first, then thickens up. very nice.

O: if brewed again ill be picking up more than one for sure.

cheers

22oz bomber poured into a 3 Floyds Imperial pint glass.

Appearance: Deep dark chocolate color topped with brown foam that's about 1 finger tall. A nice layer lasts until the finish. A wall of solid lacing is impressive.

Aroma of salty oyster and slightly burnt roasted chocolate malt. Whiff of noble hop.

Taste has a smokey, salty flavor backed by some sweet roasty smooth malts.

Thin mouthfeel but I enjoy this aspect. Smooth with spot on carbonation

Overall a surprisingly tasty creation but only surprising because of the oyster. I am not surprised that my favorite two breweries created a winner.

Got a bottle at the pub awhile back

A: Black beer. Tan head with nice carbonation.

S: Lots of roasted malt. I dont know if its just that its a oyster stout but I feel like I can smell the coast of Maine in this beer. It brought me back to a trip that I took out east, I really like that about this beer

T: A malty sweet stout with lots of sweet malt.

M: as a english stout should feel, lighter body

O: I really like this beer for the fact that it taste great and brought me back to one of my past vacations.

Pours very black with a good two fingers of khaki head. Looks very nice. The aroma has some chocolate and a tinge of shellfish. The taste is dark chocolate and coffee. There is no overwhelming bitterness or sweetness. This beer works perfectly. The flavors are very nicely balanced and I recommend this to any stout lover.

The pour is a nice black color with a good ring of tan head and some lacing.

Smell is nice, cocoa powder stout, some roast, and just a bit of saltiness.

The taste is really nice, and there is definitely a mineral saltiness at the back of the palate that really distinguishes this as an oyster stout. Very rich front palate too, nice roasty malty stout flavors, some coffee and cream flavors too. A really flavorful beer that's salty and a little sweet, very nice. super tasty oyster stout.

The feel is nice, good body and carbonation, nice salty back palate.

A really nice beer, I really expect nothing less from Floyd's.
