Poured can into snifter, nice looking , no notes so I could be skimming on this.
Smell was fantastic- dark fruits , briny tang, caramel malts
Taste is fantastic- don't know if this is best oyster stout tried but it's one of the tastiest stouts definitely has malt upfront raisins- chocolate with a nice tang from the oysters.
Mouthfeel seems spot on - medium bodied. Nice finish with carbonation right.
Heartily recommend

Pours a rich coffee black and reveals a dark amber at the edges when held to the light. Not much head retention or lacing.

Smells of dark dried fruits with some cocoa and a touch of roasted caramel sweetness.

Taste is fantastic and smooth. burnt and roasty rye notes with a touch of hop bitterness. Overall very smooth and balanced with some milk chocolate notes covering it's abv.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Not overly viscus though.

Overall a fantastic example of an oyster stout. Dry yet creamy, roasted yet sweet. Well balanced with the exception it could look still stand to look as delicious as it is.

A: Very close to black with a moderate sized light brown fine textured head. Lace is spotty and on the move.

S: Sweet, clean, caramel, cocoa, and yes, oceany. Not sure what I would call it if I didn't know about the oysters. Very refreshing aroma for a stout. Soft around the edges... Milk-like.

T: Taste has a nice pile of creamy caramel, lactose sweetness, and light bitterness. Caramel, cocoa, some coffee, toffee, pine. Doesn't taste salty but there something extra going on that works rather well with this beer....perhaps the oysters again. Milk stout meets salt water toffee.

M: Velvety smooth, soft, nice very fine carbonation levels, and well coating. Leaves a tingly bitterness behind combined possibly with alcohol warming.

O: This is a pretty great stout. I like what they have going on in this.

Very dark with a brown head. The beer offers no aromas of oysters or the sea but does give off a great roasty malt and chocolate scent. The taste is really nice. It is mainly coffee and chocolate. There is a slightly bitter finish. This is a really nice stout but I didn't get anything that reminded me of oysters or salt.
