COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For its third stop on our multi-year trip to explore the state of New Jersey through its beer and culture, Flying Fish journeys to Exit 1 for Bayshore Oyster Stout. Oysters have had a long association with stout in the United Kingdom. This tradition was gradually lost to the rise of pale ales and overharvesting of the oysters. Exit 1 celebrates this tasty combination and New Jerseyís history as one-time oyster supplier to the nation. Our version is an "export style" stout brewed with oysters. The creamy chocolate flavor harmonizes with the minerals from the oyster shells (thereís no actual "oyster" taste). An Irish ale yeast contributes a bit of fruitiness and a dry crispness. This richer, fuller stout is perfect for cold weather and to share with friends over great food. Not to mention with a few oysters on the half shell.

Bottle from James, thanks! Thick dark black pour with nice chocolate mocha head. Aroma is dark coffee roast, mild hop presence, and molasses. Taste is mild bitter roast up front, medium mouthfeel, a touch of dark fruit sweetness with a bitter roast aftertaste. Nice stout, extremely quaffable for a dark beer.

Pours a dark black with mocha colored head. Chocolate, molasses on the nose. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, bitter roasted malts, hints of vanilla and licorice, sour malty taste at the back of the tongue, somewhat sticky. It?s a decent oyster stout; nothing too interesting.

Solid stout chocolate notes nice body deep blackness. A bit bitter but more hop bitter than malts. Not sure why itís an oyster stout

12oz bottle, purchased today from Perfect Pour. Use by: 01-09-15. Black color. Thin ring of khaki head. Dots and bits of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. A bit thin for a 7.5% stout. Nice light chewiness to it, though. Some dark chocolate, roast, light coffee aroma. Donít get much of the oyster. Maybe a hint of brine? Not much though, relative to other oyster stouts Iíve tried. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Decent oyster stout. While a bit thin, itís pretty easy drinking. Very nice to enjoy with a seafood dinner. Good bit of chewiness after awhile, after it warms up. Nice.
