Appearance - Inky black half a finger of brown foam that goes away instantly no retention. No Lacing.

aroma- roasted briny-ness- like nori seaweed paper a little bit like buttered bread

Taste- Roasty and smokey and just a touch of briney-ness in the finish the hops get a bit lost in this but I like it. Its not sweet as a result of a lack of hops. In fact as it warms the hops become a bit more pronounced. This Oyster Stout is one of the first I have ever had and I really like it. The buttered bread (like squaw dark bread) comes out towards the end along with the hops. They are a bit piney. Noble?!

Mouthfeel- medium to full bodied, a bit high on the carbonation but i think as it mellows it is quite tasty. not too much alcohol that it wouldn't compliment a plat of oysters

Overall- yes- two of my favorites, dark beer , and oysters very tasty. Obviously it would compliment seafood and I think any dish where lemon was a feature ( oddly enough). Not having much to compare it to in the oyster stout category I would say that this is a winner!

Pours pitch black with a thick head that lasts awhile before becoming a thin lasting cover. Spider-web lacing sticks.

The smell reminds me of the Atlantic Ocean (which I live near). The smell is wanting me to get to an oyster bar... salty...with a roasted chocolate undertone. Coffee comes through.

The taste is salty with roasted notes. Chocolate with a hint of licorice. The taste is on the mild side - if it were more robust I would appreciate it even more. Still, it is delicious.

It has mild carbonation, is on the full-side of the spectrum, and is very smooth.

This is a nice oyster stout. English in character, with American "craft" touch. It would go well with oysters. Well-made!

My bottle says 4.7 abv.

A: Pours a black cola color with a nice tan cap of 3/4 inch.

S: Aromas are of malts rich and dark roasty with a bit of piney hop note tucked it there.

T: Taste is of much the same. Rich dark maalts roasty goodness and a touch of briney brakishness from the oysters perhaps.

M: Mouthfeel is of medium body with a light carbonation level which gives it a silky feel.

O: Overall a nice beer to have with some fish and fries went nicely.
