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.

Deep brown/black pour and a maroon hue, khaki head and light sticky lacing ... aroma of roasted malts, light chocolate malts and light licorice.... taste of cocoa/bitter dark chocolate, lightly roasted malts with a bitter hop bite, light oyster and light licorice. .... Mouthfeel is thin ... Very drinkable and the abv is hidden well.

GIJOE (1082) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Poured from a 12 oz. can. Dark brown with a thin pale head. Aroma is a touch of caramel and malt with a hint of metal and oysters. Flavor is on the sweet side, but the hops are distinctly there. Creamy and light. Nice brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A fantastic stout. Pours a thick black with a light tan head. Smells amazing, like cream, and molasses. Taste is similar, very milky and thick, with a slight hoppy finish. Damn good beer. Had at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Most impressive! This is a wonderful little stout from a can. Deep dark cocoa flavors and molasses like sweetness. Slight brine flavor in finish and initial palate bite.

onceblind (7322) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2013
Black with a thin light tan head. Roasty sweet nose with a touch of char, some crystal malts, a bit of chocolate, and just a whiff of caramel. Flavor is really big but not syrupy or wrecking. Huge taste starts off with roasty sweet dark stouty malts, a touch of dry chocolate, an very earthy toffee/caramel undertone. Only a very little touch of brine on the finish that would even let you guess oyster stout...it’s very hidden. Probably wouldn’t have even said so if not for the description/name. Enough bitterness to kick a little bit and balance it all out.

Can sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks zvikar. Dark brown to black with a bubbly beige head. Sweet roasty aroma with a bit of chocolate, slightly chalky, licorice and a bit of dark fruits. Roasty flavor with chocolate, bittersweet. Medium-bodied.

burg326 (5370) - Florida, USA - APR 22, 2013
12 ounce can poured dark brown with aromas of roast, chocolate, light salt amd some earthiness. Flavors follow suit with a decent amount of roast, chocolate, and earth, a light brineness in the aftertaste, but a solid stout overall.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2015 Dark chocolate body, with ring of sea foam. Wonder sea-air nose, of brine and salt. Fairly full-bodied with a wonderful debittered, dark malt lattice overlayed with briny shell essence. Hints of smoke mingle with dark roast and salt, contributing a lovely complexity. Well done! Re-rated: 12/2/15:Poofy chocolate head, and a bit more black patent and thinner body than I recall, but otherwise, not bad.
