Taste like a liquid ashtray or cigarette butt. Not my thing! I prefer Exit 1 for an oyster stout.

Pours dark brown, almost black with a red tint when held in the light. Head is fine and fizzy, and dissipates entirely as you pour the beer. No lacing.

Smells weakly of coffee with not much else. Maybe a bit of dark fruit? Overall quite weak.

Taste is bitter, smoky, and a bit gritty. Easy, balanced flavor with the smokiness hitting the back of the throat. Aftertaste is pleasant balance of dry and sticky, if that makes any sense.

Mouthfeel is light and thin, but well bodied for an english stout I guess. I'm still looking for a real oyster taste, and other than the slight gritty, rock taste midway through, there isn't much. Fizzes a bit when swished, but more foamy than harsh. Drinkability is good balance of flavor and thin body, so it's a winner there at least. Overall a disappointment.

First beer I bought in Maryland from my relocation from Oregon. Was interested in trying something new the the "Oyster" aspect triggered my interest. I brought it home and when I pored it it was had a nice off white head. Smelled like a typical stout, but had a light roasted malt smell that I am used to. The oysters are pretty noticeable and the beer had a slimy finish... I was pretty dissatisfied in the overall quality of the beer... with the sliminess and the lack of a backbone, I would not buy it again.
