Beer Of The Week: Denver Beer Co Oyster Stout

Finally, a DBC beer with full flavor! This has all the qualities of a normal, robust stout with the addition of Massachusetts oysters (not the Rocky Mountain variety like Wynkoop). The oyster adds something extra – perhaps an umami flavor – to give the beer added depth and a savory flavor. Even on a hot summer day this stout was so compelling that after a few samples I even chose it over the Hefeweizen, which at first seemed the more obvious choice.dbc
