Flying Dog Brewery -- Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout
It tastes like an average stout. A pinch of chocolate. A lot of burnt malt. A bit of vanilla and cold coffee.
And then the oysters kick in. Yes. You read that right. Oysters. They add a pinch of dry salt to the end and offer a unique spin on an average stout. This would probably taste wondrous on tap, but from the bottle its a tad weak and lacking. The smokiness adds a bit to the oceanic effect, but it just needs more.
But it has oysters.
Buy if: you want something unique.
Overall: it really needs more of everything. More malt, more cocoa, more sea salt and oyster at the finish. Its a bit watery and just needs more power. A unique, memorable experience I would share only with a friend.
3 out of 5.
