Inspired by the original oyster stouts of the 19th century, Whalesbone Oyster Stout is clarified with oyster shells, and is described as follows:
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. Our Oyster Stout stays true to the tradition of the stout, while remaining extremely drinkable and not too filling.
Whalesbone Oyster Stout is on tap now at all four Clocktower locations in Ottawa.
