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

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Very well balanced stout that hits many flavor notes- roasted malts, some hop bitterness, moderate coffee and chocolate, bit of sweetness, even some dark fruits. Dark black pour with mocha colored head and lacing. Very well done.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6717) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured black and oily with a medium sized foamy dark brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was bitter and toasty with strong floral hops, smoke and a touch of medicine. The flavor was bitter and toasty with notes of coffee, cocoa, vanilla, floral hops, a bit of dark fruit, but, cola and an earthy note. Nicely complex. Long finish. Moderately full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Interesting.

AWISLguy (2535) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. No bottle date. Pours brownish with a bit of a tan head. Aroma has raisins and light chocolate and molasses and sweet caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, some rum raisin, other fruits, a touch of chocolate and perhaps salty brine. Medium bodied without much alcohol presence. Finishes dark fruity sweet with caramel. Tasty, a bit heavier rum raisin than should be, but also caramelly. 13.8

John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle. Black with a soapy thin head. Aroma is cocoa, black licorice, and roasted malt. The taste is very complex - cocoa that comes in waves, a subtle dry finish from the oysters, some earthy notes, a little dark fruit, and oak wood. Very smooth full body, with average carb. I love this. A+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours pitch black with a one finger khaki head with nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate, bakers coco, burnt wood, and some light mineral notes. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with both milk and dark chocolate notes, light mineral/brine notes, and roasty notes. has a medium body with a very creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty oyster stout that has a nice palate.
