COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When life gives you oysters, be sure to brew some killer oyster stout. That’s exactly what Nico Freccia and Shaun O’Sullivan, co-founders of 21st Amendment Brewery did. In a food+beer collaboration with Hog Island Oyster Company co-founders, John Finger and Terry Sawyer, the 21st Amendment Brewery team has created Marooned on Hog Island, the latest beer in their Insurrection Series, a limited edition, once-in-awhile four-pack release of a very special beer that rises up in revolt against common notions of what canned beer can be. Marooned on Hog Island has an ABV of 7.9% and was brewed using Magnum and Willamette hops with an ale yeast, a variety of malts including Pale, Crystal, Chocolate and Carafa, Rolled Oats, White Wheat and the kicker: 450 pounds of Hog Island Sweetwater oyster shells.

This is a very unquie Stout can’t say I have ever had one like it. Pour in dark brown in color with a great tan head that is full of very tiny tight bubble head that almost looks like milk shake. Aroma is malty,sweet and has alcohol notes that are like sherry. Full body and bitter but a little to much alcohol on the finsh.

Le nez est rôti, torréfié et légèrement fûmé, une touche de lait de coco se fait sentir aussi. En bouche c’est riche avec un bon côté salin, délicieux.

The body is almost flat, with little head, but very dark brown with rust highlights. The aroma is salt, chocolate and coffee. Those flavors dominate the flavor, too, and it’s just damn good. There is hardly any presence of hops, just a lot of salt, chocolate and coffee. I love this and I hope I can find it again.

Not a bad oyster stout. Nose is sharp and mostly roasted malt with notes of almost sea water. Taste is plenty of roast and some sharp malts. Smooth and drinkable, especially since this isn’t really my style.

12oz can. Pours pitch-black in color, with a moderate head of tan foam. Aroma is subtle coffee and chocolate notes. Taste is roasty, chocolatey, with a subtle brininess. Very tasty and well balanced. No evidence of oysters at all!

JaBier (4887) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Can from a quad purchased at Aficionado’s. Dark brown in color with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roast and saltwater. Malty and chocolatey flavor with some coffee character and salt before a roasty finish.

Smells of rich chocolate mousse or pot de creme with a hint of booze that opens up into a raisiny port-like impression as it warms. The flavor doesn’t veer far from the aroma as it begins with the same rich chocolatey quality. It starts sweet, but the mid-palate is smooth and creamy with a drying and very slightly roasted finish. Delicious and dangerously drinkable for its weighty 7.9% ABV. Might be my favorite oyster stout.

Location: 12 oz can from jcos, 3/15/13

Aroma: The nose is a pretty nice mix of the roasted malts and the brine/salt water
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small head that leaves some spotty lace
Flavor: The flavor has lots of roasted malts, a light-mid sweetness, mild bitterness, and a salty finish
Palate: It is medium bodied, feels smooth and a touch ashy, soft carbonation, and a dry, briny finish
Overall Impression: I just noticed as I’m rating this that I have moved into the Top 300 raters on the site. Anyway, thanks Kramer! This is some really good stuff. I thought it was pretty easy to drink and I really enjoyed how the oyster shells worked in the one. There’s just the right amount of brine to add depth to a roasted malt fronted beer. Nicely done!

Can. This beer has a deep brown body (kinda syrupy looking on the pour) and a thin tan head. Aromas are a kind of syrupy mix (sensing a theme theme yet?) of wood, chocolate and prunes. The dark fruit has me a little concerned before I take the first sip because it seems a little over the top. First sip confirms it... This is a very syrupy and fruity stout. It’s ok, but not my cup of stout. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy as well. I see what they were trying for, but I just don’t really like a beer that is so syrupy. Then again, I don’t like cough syrup either.
