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.

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 isnít 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!

Can from a quad purchased at Aficionadoís. 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 doesnít 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 Iím 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. Thereís 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. Itís ok, but not my cup of stout. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy as well. I see what they were trying for, but I just donít really like a beer that is so syrupy. Then again, I donít like cough syrup either.

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.
