Traditionally in London at about the time of Dickens, Stout and Oysters were the poor man's meal, taken as good hearty tasty food.

There are no Oysters in Oyster Stout, but the association is well established and you can now enjoy this great tasting traditional English Stout.

The unique character of Oyster Stout is brought about by fermentation with the Marston's strain of yeast. Taken from the Burton Unions, this yeast is very active and gives full attenuation of beer giving a dry clean after-palate.

English Aroma Hops, Fuggles and Goldings are added for their fruity, floral and spicy contribution to the taste with the majority of the bitterness coming from the roasted malts. The final result is a rich, dark and extremely creamy smooth stout with good character and strength.

A Stout from Marston's which I bought in a mixed 4 pack. One of the better Stouts I've had, lots of flavour including heavy chocolate but to me a first hit of tropical fruit bizzarely. Finishes with a slight pleasant bitterness. Nice and complex!

So good in fact that we have replaced Guinness with Oyster Stout. Some trepidation from Guinness drinkers to start with but we sell more stout than we ever did Guinness
