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.

Bottle. Pours black, with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and some rather different. Can’t put my finger on it, so I’ll attribute it to the oysters. Medium body, with a dry finish. Not bad at all.

Bottle Pours black with a decent brown head. The head is creamy and mostly lasting. Laces excellently. Aoma is good with chocolate, milk, and roast. Has a good carbonation. The flavor is good. Nice bitter end. Very robust. Has a thick texture. The body is full. Blended well and hides the alcohol nicely. Has a good finish with a nice aftertaste. Very well done.

Cask @ Hulmeville Inn. Black pour with brown head. Some chocolate, roasted malt, and light coffee. Was served too cold, needs to be a little warmer to open up.

BrockLanders (770) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Bottle from Canals in Egg Harbor. Really liked this one....big roasted malt nose. Dark brown pour..finger thick brown dark tan head. Flavor is delicious....more thick maltiness but an interesting spice is there with the nice bitter hop edge. The mineral-ness (mentioned in the description) is there but not in a gritty sense. Full bodied...the sweetness that is present during the taste falls off in the end giving way to some a very appropriate bitter finish. Good stuff.

kramer (4686) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2009
25 oz bottle, via Stateline Liquors. Pours a pitch black body with a nice creamy one finger brown head that had decent retention. The nose is very roasty with some licorice, and an interesting slightly salty brine note. The flavor is very rich and roasty with a fairly prominant yeast note and that brine water finish. I really like this, the oyster really plays a nice role in this giving the typical Foreign Stout a really unique twist. Full bodied and soft with a nice soft carbonation level. Very nice beer.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2009
750ml bottle. Dark brown pour with a small to medium head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate, fairly creamy/sweet with a good mouthfeel for a lower ABV beer. But I don’t taste any oysters. Maybe just a bit of calcium and salt, but that’s probably just because I was looking. Finishes with lactose-like sweetness.

From a bottle poured black with a small amount of head. Nice toasted malty flavor with a lasting finish.

pineypower (2402) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Pours out black with a slight lacing tan head. Aroma of heavy roast, coffee, chocolate and slight licorice. Taste is complex, nice smooth creamy mouthfeel, nice roasted bordering on burnt malts, some chocolate, coffee and earthy notes lingering here and there. Smooth and rather dangerously drinkable.

dmac (3742) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2009
750 ml bottle. Poured a very nice looking pitch black body with a smaller creamy beige head. Aroma was classic stout with zero trace of oyster, all roastiness, light coffee and chocolate, burnt toast. Very smooth bodied with a creamy full mouthfeel. Flavors are loaded with roasted malts, light coffee and bitter chocolate and cream. Good stuff.

Dark pour with a tan head. Aroma of espresso, roast and metallic hints. Silky mouth-feel. Coffee, roast, chocolate, and cream. Very solid beer. My only issue was how thin the body was, but hey its only a 7% beer
