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.

12 oz can. It pours a nice dark orange/brown color with a rather fizzy yet thick tan head. The aroma is mixed. There’s some nice chocolaty notes in there and maybe a hint of mocha but also a slight green apple twang and alcohol. The flavor is decent with more chocolate to go with some sweet brown sugar and a little more of that off note… I’m not really getting the brininess that I was hoping for. It does have a silky, full mouthfeel though. The finish has a little more roast and a bit of cloying brown sugar. Overall, not too bad, but slightly disappointing and not worth the money.

12oz can from Thome50! Thanks!.. this is the last of the beer he sent me, and it took some serious cajones to drink, I don’t like oysters, I don’t like seafood so this is a tough beer to stomach.. Pour is a thinly bodied beer with nose of roast and some slight hop bitterness. taste is dominated by crystal malt and some funky salt water/oxidation taste that is very slight, but noticeable. I’m calling this a gimmick beer and scrolling past.

12oz can poured into a tumbler glass. Opaque super dark brown color with a decent mocha head. Roasty nose, with minerals, dark chocolate and earthy hops. Rich chocolate flavors, with some coffee, roasted malts, medium bitterness and faint mineraly/salty notes. Med-full body, rich and quite complex, satisfying and good.

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - MAY 30, 2013
12oz can. Pours dark deep brown color with an inch of tan head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and some mild mineralness. Taste follows the aroma closely with the oyster aspect of mineral and brine standing out much more. Body is medium, with a moderate amount of carbonation.

kramer (5499) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Can. Pours an almost opaque dark brown body with a small frothy light brown head that fell quickly to a thin film. The nose is roasty and sweet with lots of licorice, some chocolate, a little bit of a briney note, and black strap molasses. The flavor is quite sweet and roasty with a slightly salt laced briney finish. Fairly nice Foreign Stout up front with a nice thick licorice note, the finish is what gives it a little bit of a unique twist. Medium bodied, a slight stickiness, moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice beer, but the saltiness on the finish gets to be a bit tiring.

12 ounce can thanks to the Boise crew. Pours a dark medium brown color with a medium beige head. A interesting nose of ash, cherries and some smoke. The flavor is similar: light dry fruit, ashy and smoky, some light roasted malts. Very grainy. Interesting and good.

Marooned on hog island, easily the strangest beer name in a long time. Rescued from the discount cart at Harris teeter in Charlotte, nc. Dark black brown liquid with disconcerting creamy bits. Nose a dry roasted black coffee with limestone notes. Medium roasty coffee with a touch of cream. Lightly fizzy body. More dark coffee on the finish.

Brown, clear, tan head. Nutty, chocolate, biscuit, an interesting earthy note that I assume is oysters. Interesting beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
