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.

750 courtesy of billab914. Pours dark brown with a thin ring of bubbles. Smells of cherries, roasted malt, spicy, earthy. Tastes roasty with some cherry notes dominating. Enjoyable.

Ughsmash (7137) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2010
750mL bottle. Poured rather highly-viscous dark brown with a mega-deep brown head.. would’ve been a "5" if the head stuck around a little longer. The aroma picked up burnt molasses and black patent maltage upfront, with milk chocolate and light mineral notes accenting (although I probably wouldn’t have noticed the minerals in a blind tasting).. warm and chocolatey on the back.. I really dug the nose here. The flavor found black patent and sweeter, milky chocolates all the way through.. vanilla sweetness and a touch of coffee bitterness around.. slightly sour roasty coffee and milk chocolate on the finish. Medium-plus bodied with a nice, heavier feel on the palate.. dry-roasted with a great flow to it.. balance was right on. This was an excellent brew!

Not sure who brought this one to the Hellbilly’s...think it might have been SuperDave. Dark mahogany pour with a roasted coffee and cocoa laden aroma. Flavor is toasted malt, chocolate, coffee bean, and a hint of fruitiness. Solid and I’m glad I had a chance to try.

HighlanderOne (1009) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Poured from big bottle. Very faint aroma of malt, smoke and booze. Stout black, purple-ish brown head that fizzes away fast like soda. Has a very dry, somewhat bitter cocoa flavor, with cream and a bit of dried fruit. Slightly salty in the back, which surprisingly is a plus. Buttery feel. Nicely drinkable

750 ml bottle via trade with boamr - Pours a dark brown color with a small light tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and earthy. Flavor is roasted malt, esters, and light chocolate. Nothing out of the ordinary in this one. Medium body. A good beer. Thanks Ryan.

Pours a deep dark brown, almost black, with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee. Taste is bitter. Has the roasted coffee, malt flavor as most stouts. A little watery.

craftycarl21 (2227) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Black pour with a billowing brown head. Aroma holds chocolate, roasted malt, salt, and a touch of dark fruit. Flavor is quite fruity, almost like a Belgian style stout, with lots of chocolate, roast, and saltiness. Palate is quite dry, with well balanced carbonation and a medium body; glides across the tongue quite nicely. Unique, and a tasty stout overall.
