Dark brown - nearly black - with a thin khaki head which quickly drops to a film. No lace.

Scent is mildly briney with charred breadcrusts and a hint of chocolate. Molasses?

Taste is similar. There is a subtle mineral flavor and a little brine from the oysters. Charred breadcrust, roasty chocolate malt. Seems like there is just a touch of molasses in there but i'm not sure; not so much a sweetness but a flavor.

Not a bad stout.

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.25 A: Dark brown color. Two fingers of foamy tan head. Retention is about average and not really any lacing is left.

3.75 S: Moderate roastiness. Brine from the oysters. Some caramel sweetness, but dry overall. Mineral and graininess. Fairly simple, but quite pleasant.

3.5 T: Tastes like the nose. Moderate roastiness with just a touch of ash. Dry, but with notes of caramel and chocolate. Mineral, grain, brine.

3.25 M: Lighter medium body. A bit more carbonation than I'd like, but good enough. Lacking creaminess, but otherwise okay.

3.5 D: I'm not sure if I've ever had a stellar oyster stout, but they always seem to be pretty good. They intrigue me.
