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 Jerseyís 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 (thereís 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

The aroma is full of chocolate and licorice with a slight burnt note. Black color with a tan head with ok head retention. The flavor is a mostly smooth roasted malt complexity with some noticeable fruity esters on the front and middle end of the taste. The end note contains a hop and roasted grain bitterness to balance some of the maltiness. Medium-full body with silky creaminess and a dry endnote. Overall, a great tasting stout. I would buy this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Pitch black body with a tall, dense and persistent brown head on top. Great looking stout!
Aroma: The aroma leans a bit sweet with chocolate and mild roasted malts, thereís a mild dryness contributed, I assume by the Irish yeast. It certainly has the Irish yeast aroma.
Taste: This is a very solid imperial stout with a touch of chocolate sweetness to compliment the shy roasted malts. The chocolate reminds me of syrup a little a semi-dry and quick finish. This is a very nice stout.
Palate: Full-bodied, but not super thick. The carbonation is mild as well.
Overall: This is one of the best oyster stouts that Iíve had. I like the malt profile and the drinkability is high. No brine worth noting, but this is very good beer, well worth trying once.

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, itís earthy and light mineral character adds a bit of a sharp bite and significant tang, and thereís some creaminess too smooth the acidity. If I had my druthers, Iíd like this to be drier, but itís 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.

2009 bottle drank in January 2014. When opening the beer I got a loud pop from the carbonation, but luckily it didnít 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!
