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.

My first Oyster stout! As a stout, it's very apropos -- roasted malt flavor with some hoppiness, smooth, semi-thick texture, and midnight black in color with a white-ish, short-lived froth. The oysters do indeed coming through, adding an unusual taste to the flavor and which along with the roastiness perseveres. Recommended, though wouldn't mind it being a bit thicker and at a higher ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance: Pours a solid dark brown, letting no light through at all. Atop sits a sparse layer of micro film and a tan ring around the edges.

Aroma: Roasty dark malt, dark chocolate and a little bit of wine.

Taste: Medium coffee roast, black pepper, burnt toast, dark chocolate. A little bit of a twang in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Active spicy carbonation. Full bodied.

Overall: Very simple, and pretty well executed. I usually get a spicy throat coating from oyster stouts, but not this time.

This stout has a color that’s dark brown and a dense, light brown head. It looks very nice. Wow… what’s it in that smell? Oysters!!! The oysters really come through in this beer… it even tastes a little like oyster crackers. That oyster thing totally controls the aroma, and in the mouth it’s more of exactly the same, with an almost alcohol-like sticky sweetness left behind on the lips – but with a very odd metallic sweetness in the finish. Weird, but good!

Interesting. A little too big and rich for my taste, and there’s something a bit off to me, but solid.

Draft at Big Bear. Dark maroon color, tiny edge head. Aroma of smoky, peppery chocolate. Taste is burnt cocoa and coffee. Nice body.

Saw Andy’s rating while drinking this and realized I haven’t rated it yet. Pours dark brown with a light tan head. Thin but consistent. Nose is bright and nutty, richly so. Earthy fruit notes and some roasty chocolate. Taste adds some bitter and briny elements and a dry palate. I guess I gave two of these to friends, so this is only my second one. Last one didn’t get me excited, but this one is tasting great. Unique, for sure.

2nd Oyster stout rate in 2 days.... u jokin’?

Pours a very dark brown, almost black... with the ruby hues. The head is very small but well retained.

The aroma is so fantastically rich and inviting. Highly roasty, very chocolaty, with nice nutty and currant undertones. Not unlike a mocha, but different... probably because it’s beer.

The flavor is strongly roasty, almost rudely so... but it’s nice too. The fruit notes are bright and sometimes weird, certainly some currant in there. The beer is plenty bitter and a touch boozy. It pretty much nails the "weird but intriguing, and somehow delicious even though it "shouldn’t be" foreign stout thing... so my hats off to them for that.

Dark pour with a slightly tan head. Great lace with a very light aroma of roast. Mouth is very creamy. Taste is slightly roasty with hints of brine. Really drinkable.

12oz canned November 19, 2012. Served at around 50F.

Pours black with a two finger light brown/beige head that recedes to a wispy cap but leaves nice sheets of lacing behind.

Aroma is roasted malts, strong black coffee, nice briny mineral-type notes, earthy, some chocolate. Very good strength.

Flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, quite a bit of the oyster’s briny/mineral influence in the flavor. Really nice base stout. Moderate sweetness, mild bitterness, mild to moderate alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, creamy, smooth, moderate to good carbonation.

Realllly nice oyster stout. Perfectly balanced. Excellent base beer, oysters don’t overpower nor are they too mild. Really good.

Out of can. Light head med lacing. Chocolate and briny nose. Cacao and seawater briny taste. Smooth but finish is really dry for me. Interesting for sure
