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.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 Poured from can dark brown with large tan head. Chocolate, roasted malt aroma. Very nice roasted malt flavor, chocolate flavors and caramel and brown sugar. Hop finish. Good stout but Not as much brine flavor as I have had in other oyster stouts. Creamy feel in mouth.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Cans from Caponeís and Blue Dog. Pours fairly thick dark brownish black with minimal khaki head. Nose is roasty nutty cacaoey dark chocolatey malt, backup hops, blackberry. This one has a nice depth of aroma. Tastes rich, complex, with flavors of pumpernickly malt, cacao, hops, walnut, blackberry, and some black patent malt in there as well as some mineral flavors. This one is very good, and very unique, and yet another great canned beer.

Capa (2727) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Dark with a tan head. Aroma is roasted, sweet, chocolate. Medium, smooth body with a finish of light tingly carbonation. Flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, a bit of burnt sugars, light coffee. Finish is lightly bitter from the roasted malts. Solid stout, but less oyster than most oyster stouts Iíve had.

Pours a very dark brown and has a light brown head. Rich and spicy, with some malt and bread notes. Interesting (but not bad) aroma. Tastes very good.

Pours black with a tan head. Nice malty almost smoky aroma. Great chocolately malt taste that fills your mouth. Great finish! This is a super stout!

emacgee (4611) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Pours a nice rich opaque black with one finger of tan head. Noticeable viscosity to the pour. Nose shows fruit skins and a lightly smoky quality with some coffee roast and a touch of salinity. A touch of sweetness to the flavor pairs well with the dry finish. Nice roast in the flavor as well with some fruity notes on the finish.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Can. Pours a clear dark brown with an amber hue on the edges and a brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of very dry grains, roasted malt and a touch of oyster. Flavor starts with light roasted malts and dark grain with the oyster underlying and a dry finish.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1008) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Dark-chocolate brown, thin film of warm tan head. Aroma is moderately sweet, light roast and soy sauce. Bits of chocolate. Body is silky, moderate-to-thick, with fine carbonation gradually turning prickly. Flavor is brown sugar and chocolate up front, followed by hints of soy/bbq sauce with a restrained roastiness, and moving into a mild citra-earthy hop presence/bitterness. Overall, very good, balanced, complex. Although, I am irked by the fact that the oysters do not contribute substantially to the flavor profile. Itís more marketing than science/art, and craft brewing is the domain of the latter.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2013
2/4/13. 12oz can from Warehouse in Valdosta, GA. Deep brown pour with a nice khaki/tan head that is somewhat loose and soapy. The head fades to a thick ring and laces decently. Caramel, chocolate, ash, a hint of sourness, and a touch of a mineral aspect all in the aroma. The flavor is much the same, plenty of caramel and chocolate, with a subtle dose of sour, ash, and minerals. Tasty enough!

zizzybalubba (1795) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 4, 2013
12 oz. can from SoHo Organic Market in Elizabeth City, NC. Cola-like dark brown pour with a frothy khaki head. Rich aroma of roasted coffee and sweet malts. Solid flavor of roasted malts, dark chocolate, black coffee, and light smoke. Finishes bitter but not overpowering. The chocolate and coffee flavors are more present in this beer than many oyster stouts I have tried previously. Very nicely done.
