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.

BrewDad (4909) - Olympia, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Dark black in color, think head. Great Dark malt and chocolate aroma. Loved the flavor and the finish. Slight slickness from the shells other than that it is a stout with a gimmick and tasty.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 25, 2013
12oz can. Clear dark reddish brown with a small thick light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, brine and coffee. Flavor is rich chocolate malt, burnt sugar, coffee and light salty brine. Medium body with average carbonation. This is a solid stout, the oysters are subtle which is probably a good thing.

maekchu (2076) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2013
Can from Village Wine & Spirits in Athens. Chocolate, coconut, and something a bit lactic in the nose. Thick dark brown initial / some phenolic nasal bites and good bitterness in mid / light bittering track stay on the tongue inthe finish. Medium body. Pleasant enough. Smooth on the tongue, but also a bit dirty. Would go well with roast pork.

Was expecting a nice clean fresh mild stout, what I got was brother of impy stout. Is 8% fer sure. I’ve tasted foreign stouts that were mild but this is pretty strong, wew.

brenn79 (1504) - Idaho, USA - FEB 22, 2013
12 oz. can- Pours almost totally black with red highlights and a nice creamy tan head that reduces to a collar and good lace. Aroma is chocolate malts, salty (is that in my mind knowing there are oysters in here?), oatmeal. Taste is delicious actually, creamy, chocolatey, aftertaste you do get salty, don’t know a whole lot about oysters, but I think I taste them, again in the aftertaste, would love to try this with fried clams or some other seafood dinner.

Tap. Pours deep brown black with a medium brown creamy head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, light bitter. Creamy full bodied mouthfeel. I very much enjoyed this beer.
