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.

Can. Pours black with a medium-sized light brown head. Good retention. Aroma is rock solid. Light sweet vanilla and cocoa with a hint of oysters. Medium sweet flavor that quickly turns starboard, then shows pale malt and a light roasty bitter and dry finish. On the nose, the oysters are coming on stronger now. Outside of Hop Crisis, this is the best canned beer Iíve had from 21-A.

Can. Dark pour. Dark malt and light bitter finishing aromas. Nice stout tones, clean finish, not even bad as a tailgate brew.

Delicious aromas of cocoa nibs, but still very clean. Itís as dark brown as it can be without being black, with a light brown head. You can get a briny taste from the oyster shells at the beginning, with a very nice, roasted-chocolatey flavor throughout. Itís not over-sweet the way that many chocolate stouts can be, but it has an unquestionably cocoa flavor. The finish gives you more of that briny, saltwater flavor, but in a subtle, delicious way. This is a tremendous stout thatís got a lot of fun stuff going on! Stout fans, enjoy this one!

Can poured into a glass which poured a black color with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, with some sweetness with coffee and chocolate. Pretty enjoyable brew here.

A great beer! It can in a four pack of cans. It poured with a decent head and the aroma was great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from Marcus. Pours black with a fizzy tan head. Aroma of smooth burnt malt. Very smooth. Med body. Flavor is smooth burnt malt with notes of treacle. Thereís definitely some hop bitter. Smooth and bitter finish. Good!

Pours a solid black with a tan head and some lacing. It has a great aroma of toasted malt along with small amounts of chocolate and coffee. The flavor is toasted malt up front followed by a smoother middle, and a slightly salty finish and smooth mouthfeel. Some of the best artwork I've seen on a package too! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Impressive. Big thick viscous stout with a salty/briny character from the oysters. Has a lot of chocolate, roast, some anise. Sticky, with a dry finish. Very good.

I've never thought that anything canned or screw capped means it's of lesser quality, and this is a testament to that.. While it is by far not the best stout in the world, though it's definitely not the worst. I have to admit, this beer has a pronounced chalky, inky, saline quality that is no doubt attributed to the oyster shells.. Although that chalky, inky, saline quality is dominated by dark fruit, mild rum raisin and mild, sweetened coffee on the palate.. Medium-medium-plus bodied.. Smooth and creamy.. Not bad for a affordable, big production, widely distributed, canned oyster stout... Not bad at all. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...
