Oyster Point Oyster Stout

Oyster Point Oyster Stout Wine Details

Description: Deep black color. Chocolate milk color head, providing an array of Belgian lace. Toffee and light roasty aromas and flavors. A malty sweet taste is evident but, this rich oatmeal based stout finishes dry. Made with 20 lbs. of oysters, in the boil, from our good friends at Hog Island Oyster Company.

Varietal Definition
Stouts are very dark, almost black beers, and feature a heavily roasted flavor profile. This is achieved by brewing with malt that has been kilned until it resembles burnt toast. Although not always considered ales by consumers, these beers use top fermenting yeasts and as such are members of the ale family.
