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.

Can from trade with DrSilverworm. Aroma smells sweet there’s a good mix of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste moderately sweet and touch of bitterness. Roast, coffee, chocolate. Finish tastes a bit metallic to me, I think that the oysters. I tasted that on the last oyster stout I had. Overall, not bad. I never seem to like the finish on oyster stouts.

12 oz. can from Whole Foods in Fresno, CA. Poured into a tulip. Pours a dark, espresso brown with a thick, dirty head that lasts. Smell is roasted coffee, grains, and a little bit of smoke. Taste is more of the coffee with some sweet malts and a briney finish. I haven't had any other oyster stouts, but if this is representative of the style then in a huge fan!

JDBaker11058 (1935) - Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2013
Appearance: typical stout pour, with half a finger of dark tan head. Aroma: roasty malts, with chocolate, coffee, and a hint of licorice. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with the addition of a bit of brine. Finish: bitter dark roasty character lingers, with a hint of astringency and some soy sauce and salt. Notes: An interesting beer. The base stout was plenty good, and the oyster shells added a hint of saltwater. All in all, I’m glad I tried it, but probably won’t have it again. Frankly, as much as I despise bivalves of all types, it was a miracle this entered my gullet in the first place.

nealblind (1679) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 11, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2013 Tan lingering head. ample lacing. Aroma of roast cereals and alcohol. Tastes like a somewhat watery bitter sweet slightly salty stout. Very dry body with a sweet finish as your tongue pulls back off the roof of your mouth. Quaffable in large doses.

Black pour with a nice frothy dark head. Aroma was vanilla, cocoa and roasted malt. Slight earthiness. Flavors were chocolatey with bits of roasted malt. Super dry and slightly salty finish with average carbonation. Velvety mouthfeel with some interesting things going on. Nicely done.

Can at GE. Pours black with brown, foamy head, good lacing. Muted nose, chocolate and roast, licorice and cherry. Lots of roast and astringency as it warms, some chocolate, bitter and salt. Rather smooth and tasty. Yum.

UDBeernut (2638) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Hog island, philadelphia: at one point the largest shipyard in the world, now home to the most ineffecient and poorly designed hub airport in the world, the bitthplace to the hoagie sandwich. Lots o’ history here and Yes, lots of people have been marooned here... Espcially with the gracious help of UsAirways F in the A connections. Can pours motor oil black with a thin tan head with no retention. Nose of mild roast, grass. Taste is astringent. Dark caramel, and roastiness on the finish. Kinda of one demential. Body is thin.
