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

The volumes of foam this beer produced in the glass had me thinking I cellared the bottle too long. The four finger head dissipated to reveal a black stout. Flavors of chocolate malt, dried fruit, low bitterness and a dash of salt. Shared with friends on a warm Spring evening. Exit 1 was good, full bodied stout. My palate thought it lacked the flavor to make it an excellent one.

Bottle courtesy of dmac. Thanks Dave. Shared this with the east county crew by design. I had a feeling this one would be interesting and fun for everyone to try. I was pleasantly surprised immedietly by the dark liquid that flowed into our glass. Very thick, dark, oily small tan head. Aroma was malty, fruit, coffee, chocolate, raisin. Taste was outstanding. Well balanced. Little burn, very tasty. Almost no oyster flavor detected by me, but a few others said they could detect some. Overall really good and I am glad I got to try this.

Thanks to Lt. Dan for sharing at Dark Lord. Dark black pour with a tan head. Aroma was rich chocolate malt, roasted malt, and toasted malt. Taste was the same as the aroma, only better. Rich, oily chewy stout that coated your mouth with taste. I could taste a little burnt malt at the end.

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 (7508) - 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 (1237) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - MAR 27, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2015 Poured from bottle. Aroma of malt, smoke and booze. Stout black, Tan head. 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. Has improved in the last few years.

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.
