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.

12 oz. can. Pours a nearly opaque midnight brown, faint amber on the edges, with two fingers of rocky, frothy khaki head that laces the glass in big ribbons. Aroma of dark chocolate, sea water, dark fruits (berries mostly), toasted oats, and earth. Flavor of bitter dark chocolate, earth, roast, leaves, and burnt toast. Light-medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth, rich, roasty mouthfeel. Barely any saltiness or brine in the flavor. Interesting beer.

355mL can thanks to my little sister. Clear cola maroon pour. Medium tan head. Spotty to Sheety lacing. Nose is dark cherry, licorice, big brown sugar, some funky seafood, sweet brownie. Taste is denser vanilla, mild tangy lemon, bitter cocoa powder, long dark chocolate finish. Quite enjoyable. No saltiness and no oyster as usual.

Can sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks zvikar. Purple black with tan head, concentrated grape juice and camomile aroma, also sweet like dried fig. A little old bitterness and then sweet taste. Full body, no carbonation, smooth texture.

Un liquide mis en canette le 19 novembre 2012. Une fois versée, cette bière brune foncée crache des parfums plaisants de malts rôtis, de chocolat et de fruits rouges. Dans la deuxième moitié de la dégustation, je sens un léger arôme de cendre. Sur les papilles, les malts font pratiquement le même travail. Il y a une touche surette qui s’installe mais qui ne dérange pas. Je trouve que cette concoction goûte légèrement les cerises noires. En bouche, le liquide présente un corps moyen-faible. Les bulles sont modérées. La texture est habilement crémeuse. La finale me semble chocolatée et bien amère par le travail des grains maltés.

Can from growler and gill. Pours black with half an inch of khaki head. Nice! A bit of oyster and roasted malt on the nose. A bit of roasted malt on the tongue. Mouthfeel’s a little thin. This one is just not knocking me out.

skoisirius (1716) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Nice creamy and smooth somewhat impy stout from 21st. Rich and robust in the chocolate and roast department, but sweetened and creamed by the oyster department. Thick enough to not be super sessionable.

Mouthfeel is thin ... Very drinkable and the abv is hidden well.

GIJOE (635) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Poured from a 12 oz. can. Dark brown with a thin pale head. Aroma is a touch of caramel and malt with a hint of metal and oysters. Flavor is on the sweet side, but the hops are distinctly there. Creamy and light. Nice brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A fantastic stout. Pours a thick black with a light tan head. Smells amazing, like cream, and molasses. Taste is similar, very milky and thick, with a slight hoppy finish. Damn good beer. Had at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
