Hammerton Brewery Pentonville Oyster Stout (5.3%)

Pentonville Oyster StoutPentonville Oyster Stout, brewed with “Real Oysters” – as opposed to fake oysters? – is a rather good little bottle of beer.
The aroma is chocolate and honey, and maybe psychosomatically, the sea side.
The malting is full of biscuits and toffee, prunes, chocolate and coffee, and there are some green herbal hedgerow hops too.
And in the finish there’s a creamy, slightly oily sea salt crunchy bitter dryness.
Did I say rather good?
Pentonville is very good indeed.
