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.

750 mL bottle from Ye Olde Spirit Shoppe in Frederick, MD. Pours a pitch black color with a medium creamy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, a light brininess and some nutty notes. The taste is chocolate, roasted malts, nutty notes, citrus hops and a moderate briny note. Medium bodied.

Another strong offering from Flying Fish, a brewery that seems to have really hit its stride in the last couple of years. Always well balanced and dependable, the beers have really seemed to come alive recently. This is a fine stout with a great minerality, a slight earthiness, and a strong, but balanced chocolate character.

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Black, nice ring of foam. . Smells like coffee, maybe a little red wine. Flavor is coffee, maybe a little salty (?) and dark chocolate and a touch of red wine. Not bad at all. Sampled at 2010 pre-Brewer’s Jam tasting.

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) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - 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 (170) - 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.
