Notes

Add 12 whole oysters to last 20 min of boil. Oysters came from Barnstable, MA town oyster farm day before brewing.

Fantastic stout, there's a hint of wet oyster shell in the aroma but very tough to pick any out in the flavor. Salty oyster brine simply adds some salt to a stout, enhancing the roasted malt flavor. Would definitely do again, maybe next time with a Tbs of sea salt if I didn't have really fresh oysters.
