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 Jersey’s 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 (there’s 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.

Malts: Malto Franco-Belge Pils Malt, Weyerman Acidulated, White Wheat, Demerara Sugar
Hops: Horizon, Centennial, Ahtanum, East Kent Golding
Yeast: Irish Ale
Original Gravity: 17.6P

Bottle. Pour oily black with large spongy tan head, faint mocha aroma, high carbonation, lightly bitter mocha taste with alcohol undertones, faint mineral flavor, thick body, long mocha finish. The occasionally felt mineral taste reminded me of my childhood vitamin drops.

Aroma - roast and coffee. There is just a hint of alcohol. Appearance - body is black, the head is beige and rises 2" with an aggressive pour, then holds very tight settling at a 1/2" slice. Slight legs. Taste - rich roast and premium coffee. Palate - full body, thick feel, average carbonation, dry and roasted astringency finish.

12 oz bottle thanks to Willrunforbeer on this share! Almost a pitch black color with brown highlights around the edges. Aroma is dry roast, light brine, and bakers chocolate.

Body is almost full and in line with the gravity. Texture and mouthfeel is pretty much creamy and smooth. Flavor is old coffee beans, bakers chocolate and light dry roast. Enjoyable!

Lots of roast and chocolate on the nose with an earthy note as well (probably from the oyster shells). Creamy chocolate taste with roasted malt, dark coffee, and that earthy bit again. Really good oyster stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerathon (1679) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Very well balanced stout that hits many flavor notes- roasted malts, some hop bitterness, moderate coffee and chocolate, bit of sweetness, even some dark fruits. Dark black pour with mocha colored head and lacing. Very well done.
