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

Black pour. Big dark tan head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma of malt and chocolate with a bit of licorice. Not much though. Taste is malt, coffee, chocolate and roast. Creamy finish with a slight bitterness.

Ricoslim (116) - - MAR 14, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Not very thick but very smooth. Aroma is chocolate and malty. The oyster really comes through in the after taste.

r464 (2257) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Smooth, but not extremely thick or creamy. Deep roasty malt, hints of coffee, and a long finish. Just a little sweetness at first, then a full body that trails off slowly. Probably the best oyster stout I have tried.

NikkTwist (2659) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Draft at Khyber Pass. Opaque black pour with a large frothy beige head. Dark caramel meets heavy milk chocolate cocoa. Body is thick but the palate is thin. Reminiscent of an Oyster Stout but missing the saltiness (and the oysters.) Bit disappointed. Good but not extraordinary.

jsquire (4115) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Dark beer with a short lived brown head. Nice roasty malt nose. Sweet stout with some roasted grain, toast, milk chocolate and some lactose. I’ve never really got what oysters add to beer, but this is a tasty stout.
