I'm down, you unadventurous pansies. I'll have to see if I can find it next week while I am in Denver.

Good. Like I said in my earlier thread, we need feedback from GABF attendees. If it's well received, maybe the BPB race can begin.

I'll see if I can get my dad and brother to try it, too. My brother *might* be on board, but I wouldn't hold my breath for my dad. Maybe I'll have to get him try it involuntarily. *evil grin*

Involuntarily is probably for the best. He'll forgive you eventually

My point exactly...I'd try it... I think it's more of a mental thing...I actually had a (regular) oyster stout (Flying Dog's Pearl Necklace) for the first time recently, and if I hadn't known it was an oyster stout, I probably wouldn't have know it was anything other than a somewhat rich, full bodied American stout.

I tried a few sips of the Voodoo Doughnut the other night at the homebrew meeting.. Nasty as heck of course from their house smoked hickory malt but besides that there really wasn't any "meat" character. I don't think a few nuts would do any better.

An oyster stout called pearle neckless. The pearle neckless I was thinkin of doesn't come from oysters in the strict sense. More of a ZZTop thang...

I'd try it, it's not like they're raw.

I tried it at the GABF last week. It tasted like a pretty standard American stout. Maybe it was just my mind playing tricks on me, but it did seem to have a certain "meatiness" to it...
