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.

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...

Dark black , no head, medium body, creaminess, chocolate, salt, light oyster brine. The chocolate and malt sweet blends well with the oyster salty brine. Nothing is overpowering. OK was pleasantly surprised.

mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2013
pours black with a thin off white head that turns into nothing more than a collar. Aroma is pretty standard stout, faint bakers chocolate, pretty tame aroma. Taste is a bit more complex with a sweet salty balance, pretty roasty, hints of bakers chocolate and a nice brine tang to it, some earthy finishing hops. palate is kind of creamy, way better than what i expected.

RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Can pours a dark cola, small tan head, and minimal lacing. Aroma includes hints of bakers chocolate, roasted malt, and espresso bitterness, but all are quite tame. Taste begins with big malty flavor followed by bakers chocolate and enjoyable slight oyster creaminess. Would have enjoyed a thicker mouthfeel, but very drinkable with unique flavors.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; cola with thin off-white lacing. Smells solid too; malty. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Decent.

12 oz can from a box of four. First off, bonus points for the artwork and backstory on the box and cans. No one else is in 21stís league right now in terms of creativity like this. Pours medium brownish black with thin head. Aroma is dark chocolate, charred malts. Taste is similar, with a subtle but noticeable salty flavor of the sea. Iíll admit this is an acquired taste, but it tastes way better than it sounds and is really quite good. This is a nice intro to the oyster stout style as it is a bit milder than others that use actual oysters in the brew.

Emeister84 (2029) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Milk chocolate and nutty aromas, with some scents of oysters/sea water. Appearance is brown-black with tan head that fades quickly. Tastes slightly sweet with balancing roasty bitterness. The palate is full-bodied, almost creamy, with average carbonation, some brine-like bitterness, and a moderately long finish with chocolatey and roasted espresso-like flavors.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2013 ~Roasty bready aroma with salty mineral seaweed. ~Pours a light black color with reddish tints with small quickly disappearing head. ~Malty roasty flavor with some strange funkiness that is hard to subscribe. ~not a fan of this style of stout. The aroma is quite gross. The flavor is decent but has some strangeness to it. I couldnít finish the 1 oz can and poured most of it down the drain.
