Blue Point BA Oyster Stout

What the brewers say

“Rum-barrel aged oyster stout brewed with oyster shells, lime, and coconut.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Big lime notes dominate with a touch of burnt sugar from the rum peeking through. Sweet chocolate and molasses notes, roasted bitterness, and an earthy brine aroma.”

Flavor: “The stout and coconut character are present, but definitely play second fiddle to the lime and rum. The level of chocolate and roast are confusing given the mouthfeel and appearance of the beer. As it warms up, the richness of the base beer shines through to provide some support to the brightness from the lime and rum.”

Overall: “A deliciously complex beer that hints at one thing in the aroma but delivers something entirely different in the flavor. We were surprised that all of these seemingly disparate components work so well together and if one element were to be removed the overall beer would suffer. Well crafted!”
