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.

Pour is a dark purple with red and brown accents to it. Very low carbonation, no head or anything. Looks like an oil slick. Smell is sweet ocean air, cut grass, vanilla, very sweet. Taste is similar: a light and balanced sweetness with roast and malt in the background.

On tap @ 21A San Leandro. Cola colored beer with a khaki head. Huge roasted malt and cocoa powder nose. There’s some nice fruity qualities to it as well. Sweeter than expected with flavors of fudge and hazelnut, but some nice enough bitterness on the back end. Hints of coffee, subtle brine and mineral notes, and some burnt toast. One of the better 21A beers I’ve had in awhile.

Shared can with a Christmas movie. Delicious. One of the best oyster stout I’ve ever tasted. Just the right amount of roasty notes. Really smooth, medium mouthfeel. Hops add bitterness but don’t overpower with citrus/floral/pine. The oyster shells make it- super briny. Tastes like my hair after surfing. Delicious.

Aluminum can from Sprout’s: Poured an opaque dark brown liquid that created a monstrous sizing of foam. Aroma is mild with hints of roasted malts, sugary marshmallow, and cocoa powder. The drink is mostly bitter with influences of chocolate and cocoa nib while the palate is smooth and oily. Very dry residue left behind in the finish. For sure taste like an oyster stout and was extremely well balanced body.

Can to snifter. Pours dark black, small head, off white. Aroma is malt, salt, seaweed. Taste is very minerally, touch of caramel like sweetness at the end, but mostly bitter and dry. Feel is light and thin. Good carbonation for a stout. Not great overall, but enjoyable enough. Can’t see myself buying this again.

Can from Beer and Wine. Dark brown body with huge, tan head. Nose is sweet, caramel, chocolate. Taste also caramel, malts, chocolate and definitely oyster tastes in there as well. Just really good stuff. Slivery, oily texture in the finish.

furthur (879) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Can, black beer, almond colored head, good lace. Aroma is roasted malt, wet dog, and smoke. Taste is toasted barley, hint of vanilla, coffee. Palate is medium heavy, smooth and rich, carbonation almost nitro like. Finish is dry and roasty.

Pours a deep brownish black from the can with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of sweet and roasty malts with a hint of earth. Taste follows, nice stout, no real brine to me.

Old rating. Pretty brown color. The taste is a creamy mix. Some dark malts, chocolate, sea salt, slightly briny (could be in my head) and decent dose of dry, bitter hops. Interesting, but I hoped for something a little bigger in my first oyster stout.

"Looking forward to this. Ended up ok but not what I’d hoped. The saltiness is there but really not the cool brine and chocolate roast combo I expect from a good oyster stout. Pretty big foreign type stout, big roasted malts and malted chocolate, decent bitterness. Not bad but likely a one timer."
