Double Shuck

ABV:

Hops:
Waimea
Taste:
Silky smooth, Balanced roast, Hint of Salt

The new batch of Double Shuck is here!


Oysters and stout are a classic pairing, it was at one time considered a poor man's meal and has since became something truly special. The salty, briny taste of the oysters paired unusually well with a thick, creamy, roasty porter or stout (and they still do!). So we decided to pay homage to this traditional pairing, by brewing an imperial stout with freshly shucked Lindisfarne oysters - 200 to be exact - and smoked paprika.


An often shocked question we've had about Double Shuck is "Does it taste like fish?" and the answer is, not at all. The oysters give a good minerality to the beer, adding a unique depth achieved only by their being added to the brew, as well as a bit of brine saltiness in the finish of the beer. The beer as a whole is smooth and rich, with deep roast and burnt chocolate flavour, only enhanced by that slight salty note in the finish.


A unique, and delectable brew, the new batch of Double Shuck is truly something special. Enjoy with fresh oysters or seafood for the ultimate pairing.

Reviews

for the kiwis; think three boys oyster stout with a damn good kickReview by kiwi logan
since moving to Scotland a few years ago I've been hankering for a decent oyster stout,
and don't get me wrong the Scots do, in my opinion the best stouts in the world.
but this double shuck is on another level,
first sip is the alcohol smack in the face. (a bit like a shot of whisky popped into your stout when you weren't expecting it)
second sip.. its mellowing down and the saltiness is coming through
third sip you're used to it and a pepper flavour is poking its head out . (if this was a nz beer i'd say mountain horopito (pepper tree) leaves had been added at the dry hop stage.
forth sip... what, where am i?? :D



as far as im concerned, a near perfect beer.
full of flavour, a whole full bodied mouth feel, lightly carbonated.

a little more of the smokey malts would have done it for me.
but a solid 9 to 9.5 out of 10
