Bottle dated 03-02-17 into pint glass. Pours a very dark brown with only the slightest light penetration around the margins. Nice tan head. Initial impression is pretty much your standard stout (chocolate, coffee) but with perhaps a hint of saline fishiness. Or maybe that's just wishful thinking. I love oysters and for the life of me I can't say that that is a prevalent or even detectable component of the taste spectrum. Mouthfeel is a little light for a stout; carbonation is a little heavy for a stout. Neither steps outside the bounds of acceptability, though. Finish is sweet but not cloying. All in all, a good but not unusually good stout, and not an oyster-y stout either.
