COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When life gives you oysters, be sure to brew some killer oyster stout. Thatís exactly what Nico Freccia and Shaun OíSullivan, 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.

12 oz can, thanks Brenn79. Pours black but shows red highlights when held up to the light; has a medium beige head with great retention. Aroma is doughy, caramelly, coffee, chocolate milk, toasted marshmallows. Taste starts out lightly sweet but turns bitter mid-swallow; finishes with a lingering bittersweetness. Iím not getting the oysters in either aroma or taste. Mouthfeel is creamy, carbonation fairly high. Nice beer, but I wish I could taste those oysters.

12oz can into a snifter. Pours nearly pich black with a one finger dark tan head that is really too quick to fade. Barely a few streams of lacing and no cap at all left on top of the beer. Aroma of sweet cocoa, coffee, and dark roasted malt. A little bit of briny-ness is present too but it is very faint. Rich coffee and cocoa on the tasted along with heavily roasted malt. Alcohol is pretty up front as well but it is not offensive. Dark fruit comes in midway along with a little brine but you really have to dig for it. Vanilla comes in towards the finish along with a quite high slightly biting bitterness. The finish is fairly sticky with a breath of alcohol. Overall, a nice oyster stout that is stronger than some of the others I have had. The oyster shells lend a bit of a unique character and a extra element to a really good stout.

Pours a jet black color with a medium tan head that leaves pretty good lacing. Smells of oysters, salt, chocolate, and roasted malt. Tastes of all the same things mentioned in the smell but also a little smoked flavor too. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation. It was cool to finally try an oyster stout. It is very unique and full of flavor. I was a little sceptical at first but oysters used in stouts are really good.

Great tasting stout definitely lighter on the palette than I expected. Has a very mineral smell to it. Pairs great with a meal but not so much by itself. Over all great beer.

Can from my man JIm, thanks. Pours black with deep roasted malt aroma. The taste is roast but smoothed well by the Oyster shells (not oysters). Very nice.

12 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured black with a beautiful large tan head, some lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, smokey and chocolaty. Flavor is quite interesting, rich and nice, chocolate, malts and a bit of saltiness. Overall this is an awesome stout with a little kick too; worth repeating.

This was a super interesting beer. Smells like a normal stout but on the taste you actually get some of the saltyness of the oysterís.

While it sounded interesting it had a funky taste to it. Not a deal breaker, in fact it was more stout than anything else but nothing worth trying again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a black color with a large creamy dark tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was semi sweet, toasty, smoky and roasty with touches of vanilla, coffee and apple. The flavor was dryish , malty, toasty and roasty with light coffee, wood and cocoa. Medium length dryish finish of wood, roast and coffee. Moderately full bodied and smooth feel. Pretty good for what it is.
