Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass at Horsefeathers in Tarrytown, NY.
A: Pours an nearly black color with mahogany highlights on transillumination. Minimal tan head resolving rapidly to a rim, but decent rings of lacing.
S: Aromas of sea salt, cocoa, and molasses.
T: Palate follows the nose, although with more of an earthy, woody flavor.
M: Medium bodied with low effervescence evident. A bit thinner in the mouth than I would have expected.
O: A solidly constructed English (oyster) stout. Saltiness a tad overdone and a bit watery. Enjoyable enough.

"Enjoy by 10/18/18"; drank 9/13/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dark brown appearance.

A violent pour yielded a nice tan head; nice lace.

Fresh earth, sea salt & mild chocolate notes in the nose.

Medium creamy mouthfeel.

Fresh earth, cream & mild milk chocolate flavors up front; dry sea salt notes on the finish.

Interesting & drinkable, but a bit too heavy on the saltiness...which may have been the point.

appearance: pitch black with an inch high bubbly tan head. the head dissipates fairly slowly into a nice cap. good lacing.

smell: dark chocolate. briney and a little smokey. a bit meaty.

taste: yeasty, salty. tastes like a classic stout, very roasty, but has a flavor of briney-ness from the oyster. bitter.

feel: thick, moderately carbonated. on the drier side.

overall: a decent stout but it isn't quite sweet enough for me. it's pretty unique because it's brewed with oyster but the oyster adds a briney taste, although it isn't unenjoyable. i wouldn't go out of my way to get this.
