Happy Oyster Stout

American Stout with fresh oysters added (hot side)

American stout with fresh oysters from our friends at Sapidus Farms (northern neck of VA) added. Oysters were added hot side, meaning they cook and shells dissolve slightly, increasing the hardness of the water (CaCO3). This brings out and accentuates the chocolate and roast flavors from the dark malts.
