Flying Dog Brewery‘s Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout pours midnight black with a inch thick head that quickly dissipates. Big roasted malt notes. A silky smooth mouthfeel; wee bit more carbonated than your average stout. A bitter yet dry, cigar ash-accentuated finish. As for the Rappahannock River oysters? If you are put off by the bivalve you may find little evidence of it in the beer but if you are a shellfish connoisseur you’ll surely detect the delicate smoky, creamy aftertaste of oysters.
