Notes / Commercial Description:
Deep in the oyster beds of Louisiana surfaces one Bad Mother Shucker - Abita's oyster stout. Brewed with pale, Carmel, roasted, and chocolate malts, this Mother Shucker is hopped up with Willamette hops and balanced out with the sweet and full flavor of oats. Fresh Louisiana oysters are added to the brew in the final stages, infusing a slight taste of sea salt that offsets the sharpness of the stout.

Smells dark but not roasty, tastes even funkier than expected, more funk than a Prince solo, including a deep sweetness from the bass line,because you know he wrote and, probably, somehow played both all the time, even live. Foam sounds fast, nimble and crisp, tap dancing into an ear that wishes it had tastebuds. Willamette (same as Fat Tire) and nice addition of oats keep it spicy and smooth, despite a fresh shucking of oysters at some point. I bet those, if not eaten by yeast, woulda tasted like something rarely experienced, either raw, grilled, steamed, fried, ceviched or anything else. Not sure how dark it looks because i close my eyes, afraid to see what might be floating in this delivery from the swamp. Just kidding, I’d love to find a chunk of oyster as much as i would a tiny pearl in the bottom of the bottle. I suppose the 8% helps ensure sanitization, it’s clean like a car that just got a $35 wash.

Yummy beer. Would buy that one again. Wishin I was at Pappadeauxs and had a dozen on the half-shell in front of me! I found this Abita in Oklahoma on one of my recent college baseball trips to see the TCU Horned Frogs in Stillwater. Cheers y'all!
