Packaged on 8/11/2016; poured from a 12oz can into a small nonic.

Clear seal brown body with sinopia highlights and a smattering of active camel foam up top. Light surface slick and a lasting collar remain. Fine lacing, and below-average retention - surprising given the white wheat malt!

Mellow roast malt aromatics with hints of chocolate and golden syrup in the nose. Faint sea-grass aroma at times, just at the edge of perception, probably coming from a combination of the briny oyster shells and the earthy Willamette hops.

The malt bill delivers a complex flavor profile - tastes sprinting across the palate, running from caramel to unsweetened cocoa powder, with a hint of smoke (probably from the oyster shells rather than the Carafa malt) deep in the finish, rounded out by a final grainy sweetness from the oats. Medium-dry, though the alcohol is forward. Moderate bitterness, though the hop flavors are hard to parse beneath the wave of roast malt. Flavor seem to meld and improve a bit as the beer warms - the salt becomes more apparent as you reach the bottom of the glass as well.

Silky yet medium-light bodied, with rapidly dissipating carbonation - alcohol heats you up more than I would like for the style.

I enjoyed this more than my rating might indicate, though I find it lacking compared to the best oyster stouts I've sampled, which are generally dryer, less alcoholic, and more mineral-laden.

Beautiful dark brown with auburn highlights, nice sweet chocolate and roasted malt nose, semi sweet roasted and bitter chocolate flavor, finishes more bitter and a little metallic than expected. Was hoping for some salinity due to its nature, but still a pretty good stout. Cheers!

A decent stout with a touch of oyster mineral taste. Not great, not bad.
