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.

brokensail (15593) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 14, 2016
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.

Tmoney99 (13242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Can from Little Ms. Money. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average to large frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt and smoke aroma. Medium to heavy dark chocolate sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a very good beer that exceeded my expectations.

BeerandBlues2 (11971) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Can. Pours clear black with dark brown highlights with a small, tiny bubbled fizzy light tan head, short retention with the head dissipating to the glasses edge, and a light, spotty lacing. Aroma is roast and coffee malt, raisins, prunes, and dates with faint oyster notes and earthy, woodsy hops mixed around the dark dried fruity esters. Flavor is bitter dark malt, lightly sour dark fruity esters, medium hops and bitterness, balanced toward hops, with a dry finish. Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, light alcohol warmth, creamy texture, and lightly astringent from the roast malt.

Drake (11499) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2012
12 ounce can from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear dark brown color with a large foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of intense chocolate ice cream, a mild bit of roast followed by a moderately briny finish. The taste is chocolate, roasted malts. a mild salty note and a hoppy finish. Not bad, but I think that the oysters meld better with a dry stout, and I find this one too sweet, and I’m kinda disappointed they aren’t whole oysters. Decent beer.
