Scheldebrouwerij Oesterstout

Oesterstout is a 8.5% ABV Oesterstoutdark stout from Scheldebrouwerij of Meer, Belgium.  The wort from this fully malted ale is filtered over oyster shells from the Dutch Zeeland province.

It pours black-brown, with 1/2 finger of fine, light brown head with some lacing.  The aroma is of warm bread crust, warming alcohol, and a hint of fresh sea spray.

The rich taste is mostly toasted malt, with a hint of coffee and bitter cocoa.  The body is full and creamy, with moderate carbonation and a dry finish.

I enjoyed this beer a lot — next time, I’ll have to try some with fresh oysters.
