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.

12oz can poured into GLBC snifter. Delicious brew. Nice dark appearance, toasty brine smelling on the nose, rich mouthfeel with a hint of salt, finishing dry. Taste is salty roasted earthy floral minerally deliciousness. Would drink again and again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

can. near black with a large, whipped, stable, tan head. typical roasted notes with a salty vodka-like bite i assume is from the oyster shells. taste, again, has a light bite to it with a milk chocolate roasted character. creamy smooth palate. pretty nice job, sometimes these beers come out weird but this one is very drinkable.

Can. Pours black with tan head. Nose and taste of brine, roasted chocolate malt, flaked oats and dry coffee. Taste is very dry from the oysters. Finishes dry roast and brine. Lighter bodied for the ABV.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Can from Scott on Xmas day. Aroma is weaker stout, but flavor is a shock of good, bitter oyster stout. Great carb on the palate and combination of flavors and carb make this beer very satisfying. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Imaena (1858) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Can. This is a rich and smooth stout with lots of roast and hop bitterness. I looks great in a class with a nice head and deep black color. The issue here is taste. The oyster element - a faint brinyness only comes in the nose for me and the finish is slightly tinny. Would be a 4+ if they sort that issue out.

Pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Smells of chocolate, caramel, dark toast, sweet breads. Taste is bitter and sweet, moderate hops, chocolate, hint of coffee.

reggiedunlop (3121) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Pours black with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma has nice bold roastiness and subtle bitter dark chocolate. Flavor follows suit and adds a hint of smoke that works nicely. Mouthfeel is medium/full and creamy with a roasty/bitter dry finish.

gpekar (467) - Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Poured an opaque oily black with a decent foamy dark tan head that was creamy on the top. The head left nice thick lacing as it slowly reduced. The aroma was very mild with a briny chocolate scent. The beer had a good thicker body and a mild dark chocolate flavor. There was a slightly dry taste and some nice dark chocolate bitterness in the middle. The finish became slightly metallic and on the dry side with a bit of a salty brininess. Wish they would have brewed it with the oysters as well as the shells.
