Exit 1

Cracked this one at The Brick Store on a Friday lunchtime.
Simple pour with standard black body and nice, mocha head.
A very light drinking stout. Influence from the oysters? Maybe, but if there is an character at all it manifest in the light nature of the beer.
Mouthfeel is approaching thin, but it doesn’t seem to detract from the experience at all. Perhaps a mild salty, brine element amongst the water, but to be honest this may be just a function of the mind playing tricks on the palate knowing that the oysters are in there. A very light touch on the roasted malts and the hop character is extremely reserved.
Reminded me a LOT of a typical, low ABV English Stout in the way that it drank.
As a result of the light touch, and the absence of any alcohol presence, this one was very refreshing for a stout, and also had excellent drinkability. tasty beer ad one that was extremely light on its feet. Nice.
