Smells of rich chocolate mousse or pot de creme with a hint of booze that opens up into a raisiny port-like impression as it warms. The flavor doesn't veer far from the aroma as it begins with the same rich chocolatey quality. It starts sweet, but the mid-palate is smooth and creamy with a drying and very slightly roasted finish. Delicious and dangerously drinkable for its weighty 7.9% ABV. Might be my favorite oyster stout.

A: Thick black with a beautiful thin tan head.

S: Malt. Lots of Malt.

T: Chocolatey, and super malty. Sort of tastes salty/earthy but it's hard to explain without having an oyster stout. As far as the style goes this stuff is top notch.

M: Thick and delicious.

O: A great oyster stout. If you haven't had this style yet, seek one out; quite unique and delicious.

This is the stout for those who don't like stouts. A malty and complex taste that surprisingly ends clean. Bought this tasty treat at Hog Island Oyster Company for a whopping $35 for 8 beers, but wasn't disappointed. My girl and I enjoyed a bag of 50 sweet waters with this beer and it surprisingly paired well. I was told this was a limited run, I hope this beer continues on though. I have to say that this is possibly my favorite stout out there. If you have a chance to try this beer, I strongly suggest it. If you can get your hands on some Hog Island oysters, even better.

Poured from a 12 OZ. can into a point glass at the Taco Mac in Atlanta, GA. The appearance is pitch black with a tan head. The aroma is full of malt and chocolate. The taste follows the nose.
