In the light you notice that this stout is deep, dark, dark brown with a thin bubbly head.

The scent is very low key with very hard to find aromas. After some effort I found salty, shellfish tones with a tinge of chocolate malt.

The taste is absent of salty shellfish, oyster or otherwise. What I found was nice malty, chocolatey taste that tended towards molasses. Slightly sweet and a touch dry the taste is easy and enjoyable. The feel is watery and light which does tend to the ease of drink but does not lend to a true craft beer feel.

The Pearl Necklace Oyster stout is a decent light abv stout. The beer poured a opaque black with egg shell white head that is leaving some lace. The scent has nice coffee base with hints of semi sweet chocolate and caramel. The taste start with a subtle push of hops then the coffee flavors kick in which then yields to a sweet caramel finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium body with very smooth carbonation. Overall it is a very good session able stout.
