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.

Shared with Travlr. 9.4 fl oz bottle. Smells great - typical stout with very high overtones. Taste is dark chocolate with a touch of sourness. Very interesting. Nice high overtones in the aftertaste.

hbmason (1086) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2010
750 ml. poured pitch black, light head. I do get a faint light oyster taste with some roasty stout. Very drinkable and good. Maybe just a touch thin for me.

Dark pour with a small head. Aroma has roasted malts and a touch of dark chocolate. Flavor is sweet, smooth, nice level of roasted malts, not too bitter at all. Slight complexity but doesn’t scream ocean to me. A solid stout overall and very drinkable. Really quite enjoyable and finishes dry and with a slight saline aspect.

TheEpeeist (3604) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2010
25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a tan haze. Nose is chocolate and coffee; some molasses but no apparent saltiness. Medium body but nicely quenching with soft carb. Taste is not too roasty coffee and brown sugar. Smooth with notes of minerals and brine. Chocolate finish that lingers. Solid; easy drinking.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2010
Bottle… Pitch black ale with a small, creamy, beige head. The nose offers chocolate, vanilla and a faint mineral note. Medium-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor is sweet chocolate with a splash of sweetened espresso. Sweet, lightly tangy finish with a rumor of salt.

by way of cbk on 3/21/10. pours a black shade of brown with a spotty off white head. it smells and tastes of roast with some ash, chocolate, toasted nuttiness, caramel and some calcium... it is a touch bitter on the finish and a little bit saline in the finish... well i’ll be... medium bodied with a nice crisp texture to balance out the smoothness. 8/4/8/4/16/4.0

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2010
This one wasn’t really super exciting in terms of aroma and flavor. The aroma was sort of bland and boring while the flavor was flat and didn’t do anything for me. The carbonation was on the light side and the color was dark but not super dark.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle from both CAH and Capone’s. Pours onyx w 1f brown head. Nose is roasty dark malt and chocoff. Tastes of choc malt, dark choc syrup, raisins, hops, and damned if IU didn’t get a mild clam juicey flavor in this, perhapss an homage to Yards Love Stout. Complex palate and a delicious beer.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2010
I love this stout. It has a cherry chocolate edge to it, a fresh chocolate malt aroma with a hoppy edge and the oysters give it a dryness which seem to balance out the other flavors. Perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness IMHO. I’m not a seafood person but could become one fast. The only aspect of this preventing perfection is a bit of a resiny tone in the finish.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle shared by cbkschubert at Hellbilly’s Shootout in Sosco Tasting. Pours a deep dark mahogany with a thin beige head. The nose is dark chocolate, minerals, roasty malt and coffee. The taste is charred caramel malt, ash, baker’s chocolate and some coffee in the finish. Medium bodied. Nice stout – thanks Craig!
