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.

I will start out by saying that I have only had a few different oyster stouts, but out of the several so far, I liked this the least. This was worthwhile to try, but it is a good beer, not a great beer. It pours dark brown almost black and has a nutty/chocolate aroma. It has a chocolate/smoky aftertaste. If you have not tried an oyster stout before, try this one and you wonít be disappointed. Well, maybe you will be but quit being a beer snob and just kick back and relax and enjoy your beer!

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?

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.

Scipio (813) - 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.

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.

Smooth chocolate aroma thatís not overwhelming. Black bodied with finger thick tan head. Mellow chocolate roasted malt taste. Has a slick feel to itís full body. Smooth to the finish.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a relatively nice late March Tuesday night listening to records. Appearance is pitch black, moderate tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of chocolate and oysters, also a bit of espresso, smells nice. Taste equally nice, good chocolate profile, bit of nuts, definite oysters which is unique. Iím liking this one.

Can at Hog Island with BBQ Oysters. Creamy nose, lots of umami, light oyster, cocoa, some coffee. Nice body. Hides the alcohol well.

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. Thereís 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 Iíve had in awhile.
