Louisiana, United States
abita.com

Style: American Stout

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.

A: Smooth dark chocolate-coffee pour from the bottle shows a glisten of burgundy highlights from back lighting. A sandy-khaki colored head has a firm, cream consistency at one half inch and is moderately retaining. Thinly speckled lace dressing emerges.

S: Sweet chocolate/cocoa mixed with a lightly salty caramel flair is first on the nose. Sweet dark fruit, plums, most notably cherries along with a backing of fresh, moist, earthy coffee grounds. Light chocolate roastiness occurs on the finish.

T: The flavor was earthy chocolate, dark and roasted, along with some roasted grains. Small coffee interludes along with a softly bitter roasted grounds. Earthy finish off the tongue with a bit of silty ash and burnt grains. Smoked hops along with a faint saltiness rounds outs.

M: Medium body, small carbonation texture, with a earthy roast feel. Creamy and smooth, smoked malts leave a nice silty feel on the tongue.

O: Overall a good aroma and solid good flavor. Drinkability was very enjoyable, would of like to see a little bit more substance and saltiness, but fairs quite well as a solid pub drink in multiples that will lead to a good time during conversations. Soft campfire ash, novel name.

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!
