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.

Really well done brew. Pours black with a fluffy brown head. Aroma is full of malt, roast, and tobacco. Creamy in the mouth, with a bitter finish.

12 oz bottle of the re-release, this one is 7.5% abv. Nose is wonderfully roasty, dark with tar and ash, some tobacco, and the chocolate is kept to a bare, dark minimum. Pours inky brown-black with subtle ruby highlights and a tight, sudsy light brown head. Light body edging toward watery, sweet with the ash/tar/tobacco mentioned before, a really nice roast character not pushed to the side by lactose or other additives. Fruitiness is there but vague, it’s earthy and light mineral character adds a bit of a sharp bite and significant tang, and there’s some creaminess too smooth the acidity. If I had my druthers, I’d like this to be drier, but it’s pretty darn tasty as is.

Draft. Black with a 1 finger tan head. Aroma is roasty and chocolatey. Taste follows suit and adds some really nice briny earthiness. Creamy mouthfeel and sufficient carb. Very tasty.

Mora2000 (6132) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2014
2009 bottle drank in January 2014. When opening the beer I got a loud pop from the carbonation, but luckily it didn’t gush. Dark brown to black pour with a very fine brown head. The aroma has some roasted malt and light dark fruit notes. The flavor is a bit more complex. I get a lot of chocolate and roasted malt as well as some brine from the oysters. Medium mouthfeel and high carbonation.

12oz (2014 release) from Crossroads Spirits. Pours pitch black with a finger of creamy mocha colored head. Aroma is choc-o-lat-ey! Lots and lots of chocolate, some roasted malt, and cream. Taste is rich and smooth. Again lots of chocolate, roasted coffee, mild sweet caramel, and a hint of saltiness. Solid stuff!

I was a bit apprehensive about this but it was a really solid stout. Seemed like a pretty typical good stout but had a saltiness/brine at the end. I was expecting more oyster flavor but was happy it wasn’t there. It was a solid stout.

Awesome stout. Thanks JayBo. Again, this score might have been influenced by watching the Pats beat the Ravens to go to the Super Bowl. Maybe it is wistful thinking, but I pciked up some briny notes to compliment the big bold dark chocolate and heavy roasted malt character. Too bad I only had one bottle

Deep perfectly pitch black coloured body with a thin, oily deep brown head. Aroma of nothing but pungent items: anise, licorice, coffee, alcohol and roasted malt - with a definite brininess from the oysters. Full-bodied; Strong assertive nutty and roasted malt flavour with a lot of alcohol, caramel and coffee flavours and the extra body from the oysters and the almost salty finish. Aftertaste shows a ton of deep flavours again with the sweetness really coming through here and the alcohol. Overall, a very nicely done Oyster with some great characteristics and a very robust complexity. I sampled two of these 75 cL bottles purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey.
