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

Bottle. Moderate toasted, dark chocolate and mild coffee aromas for the malt, light herbs and earth fro the hops and yeast, with soy sauce and a hint of sea shore in the background. Head small, creamy, brown with some slippery lacing and good legs and is fully diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then the long finish is lightly to moderately acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, watery with a lively carbonation, and a finish that’s a little sticky. A Foreign Stout deep and rich in aroma and bold in flavor.

Bottle - Pours dark brown with creamy, small, but lasting head. Toasted malts with earthy notes. Some off flavors in this one, not for me.

"A nice rendition of an oyster stout, done export style. Fairly rich and robust with lots of dry roasted grains and some chocolate coming through. Just a hint of brine in this enjoyable brew. Really dig the style."

HonusWagner (2127) - Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Great example of the style, with a nice roasty character and a touch of briny or mineral note. I think this really captures the Export/Foreign stout style nicely, deviating from more typical stouts just slightly enough that a blind drinker could tell something was up.

Westchesterco (1831) - mclean, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Poured from a bottle shared with my ratebeer husband it is a dark brown color with no head. The aroma is like a fudge store and the taste is strong coffee flavor that changes into a coffee and black licorice aftertaste. Where are the oysters?

Prufrockstar (1995) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle, thanks to jtclockwork. Dark pour with brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, spice, mineral, salt. Tastes moderately sweet; there’s a flavor there that’s hard to pin down, so I’m going to call it "oyster?" Lightly bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Goes down surprisingly quick and easy.

bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours with a tan partially lasting head. Aroma is malty sweet, light roast, moderate minerality. Flavor is more mineral through the middle where fruity malty sweetness come briefly before the roast takes over to ride out eventually playing out with more of the oyster shell again. Feel is moderately lively and then dominated by roast and minerals. Definitely and enjoyable and classic arc in this one.
