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.

Smells of rich chocolate mousse or pot de creme with a hint of booze that opens up into a raisiny port-like impression as it warms. The flavor doesn’t veer far from the aroma as it begins with the same rich chocolatey quality. It starts sweet, but the mid-palate is smooth and creamy with a drying and very slightly roasted finish. Delicious and dangerously drinkable for its weighty 7.9% ABV. Might be my favorite oyster stout.

Pours black with a tan head. Nice malty almost smoky aroma. Great chocolately malt taste that fills your mouth. Great finish! This is a super stout!

Very dark pour with little to no head. Unique to say the least, but not in a bad way. Malty and thick tasting. A hint of salt is notable in the mix. Hands down one of the best canned beers. No real alcohol taste and no after taste. Very drinkable, and very good!

12 oz. can from Whole Foods in Fresno, CA. Poured into a tulip. Pours a dark, espresso brown with a thick, dirty head that lasts. Smell is roasted coffee, grains, and a little bit of smoke. Taste is more of the coffee with some sweet malts and a briney finish. I haven't had any other oyster stouts, but if this is representative of the style then in a huge fan!

This is an amazing stout. The taste is sweet and the feel is smooth. Pours dark with little lacing. Great tasting brew.

A great beer! It can in a four pack of cans. It poured with a decent head and the aroma was great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma de malte e cacau bastante equilibrados. Boa formação de creme em cascata. Creme acastanhando como deve ser! Marrom escuro e opaco o líquido. Ótima torrefação. Chocolate bem pronunciado. Quase chega a ser doce.

Can was 13 months old. Very malt forward and sweet. I may be crazy but I get a slight butteriness in the aroma. Overall I like it though. Happy I bought the 4-pack.

Delicious aromas of cocoa nibs, but still very clean. It’s as dark brown as it can be without being black, with a light brown head. You can get a briny taste from the oyster shells at the beginning, with a very nice, roasted-chocolatey flavor throughout. It’s not over-sweet the way that many chocolate stouts can be, but it has an unquestionably cocoa flavor. The finish gives you more of that briny, saltwater flavor, but in a subtle, delicious way. This is a tremendous stout that’s got a lot of fun stuff going on! Stout fans, enjoy this one!
