COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Out of can. Light head med lacing. Chocolate and briny nose. Cacao and seawater briny taste. Smooth but finish is really dry for me. Interesting for sure

thegreenrooster (4001) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Pour is a black with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt a little black licorice and some sea salt brine. Flavor is a nice roasted malt with chocolate and coffee notes. A nice roast and salinity is left on the tongue. Not a over the top rich and roasted stout but plenty flavorful with some brine fron the oyster shells giving this beer a little something extra.

PorterPounder (7316) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl - Momoís Pizza - Northeast - on tap. Viscous, dark black, motor oil-like pour - light mocha colored head. Olive oil and topsoil in the aroma, but otherwise pretty neutral. Bittersweet chocolate, some topsoil, a touch of pipe tobacco, a slight whisper of licorice. Slick mouthfeel that thickens as it warms. Pretty decent.

Cybercat (5111) - Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Taps coffee sable with a thick tan head. Aroma offers molasses, roasted malt, quality coffee, and semi-sweet chocolate plus a snip of oyster. Flavor nicely echoes the aroma while emphasizing chocolate and oyster. Viscous mouthfeel features good fizz. What better place to get marooned?

gregwilsonstl (2108) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 20, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2016 Can courtesy of joe. Dark black. Thin head. Dark roasted coffee. Slightly salty. Wish they did more stouts. Not really getting the oysters, so it must be working well. Very easy drinking.

Sdaniel90 (915) - Mexico City, MEXICO - AUG 13, 2016
Can, 355ml. Opaque dark brown with a foamy brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, molasses, plums, alcohol. Full bodied, fizzy carbonation. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Deep roasted flavors into a stinging bitter finish. Very pleasant toasted aftertaste. Seems watery but really isnít, its just the oyster stout profile.

bpreo (2529) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2016
Itís safe to say this isnít a Vegan friendly beer. Iím not sure how the oyster shells are used, and I probably donít want to know. Good standard Stout flavor, but am I crazy, or is this beer slightly slimy?

wlajwl (5772) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 20, 2016
Aroma is dark/roasted malts, chocolate and a hint of fruit/citrus. The flavor is fruit, dark/roasted malts, chocolate and big acidity/slight brininess in the finish.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Scipio (830) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2016
Pours a black with smooth, light tan head that lingers for a bit. The aroma has mostly chocolate and coffee, with some lesser degrees of oysters, roasted malts, salt, and hints of vanilla. The taste is salty, with a healthy dose of coffee. I find chocolate, caramel, and still a bit of coffee. Aftertaste is a salty coffee flavor sticks with you for awhile. This one is medium in body, with a creamy texture, and some subtle carbonation. The saltiness makes this different than the usual.

Pumpkin87 (231) - - APR 4, 2016
Pours a handsome opaque cola with fluffy chocolate milk head, a good size and lasts for a bit. Nose is coffee with a bit of burnt toast. Palate reinforces coffee, occasionally in espresso bean bitterness, but cocoa and a hint of dark fruit peek out. A bit of hop bitterness, but fortunately itís in line with the coffee profile, not dominating it. Thereís even an offsetting hint of dark fruit. Where are the oysters? Well, the slick mouthfeel gets balanced by a touch of brine, making for a pleasant experience.
