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

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 15, 2010
2010 pre-Brewer’s Jam tasting. Pours black with orange edges, small tan head. Aroma is creamy chocolate, hint of espresso, some vanilla and salt. The flavor is slight roasted coffee, hint of vanilla, little bit of blackberry. there’s a bit of planty bitterness. Don’t really pick up on the oyster element, but still pretty good.

nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2010
Bonus bottle from a generous trader. I’ve been wanting to try this for awhile. Pours a viscous black from the bottle with a trim brown ring of foam. Smells of smoked malt and milk chocolate. Tastes like a nice smoked porter -- very earthy with notes of cream and cocoa. Smooth and enjoyable, but aside from a slight note of shell at the front of the palate, not quite to style based on my limited encounters with Oyster Stouts.

HoppityHop (197) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2010
A nice and creamy stout. Pitch black. Very chocolatey/roasty. Very drinkable and like the description says, you don’t taste anything even remotely fishy. Overall, a good beer, but (like so many others) not worthy of the 750ml bottle price it commands.

750 ml bottle shared with steptin, Michael and Jen (a.k.a. the friendliest beer lovers in the USA, and the proudest fans of their locals). Black. Tan head. Aroma of burnt cocoa and Illy caffè. Taste is smooth and silky, bitter espresso and cocoa. Nice stuff.

Holy (837) - GERMANY - SEP 5, 2010
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.

yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2010
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 (3709) - 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 (10612) - 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.
