Oyster Stout

Ontario, Canada
55% ABV • IBU 27

The Clocktower Oyster Stout is an homage to the original beers clarified with these oyster shells. It is a dark brown, almost black beer in colour with a creamy tan head. The aroma is that of roast coffee, chocolate and just a hint of salt. The nitrogen added; rather than carbon dioxide, gives the stout a smooth creamy body, making it very easy to drink. The end flavour is slightly salty with a hint of roast. Once the beer warms up a slight caramel sweetness becomes noticeable. This Oyster Stout stays true to the tradition of the stout, while remaining extremely drinkable and not too filling.
