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.

by way of cbk on 3/21/10. pours a black shade of brown with a spotty off white head. it smells and tastes of roast with some ash, chocolate, toasted nuttiness, caramel and some calcium... it is a touch bitter on the finish and a little bit saline in the finish... well i’ll be... medium bodied with a nice crisp texture to balance out the smoothness. 8/4/8/4/16/4.0

This one wasn’t really super exciting in terms of aroma and flavor. The aroma was sort of bland and boring while the flavor was flat and didn’t do anything for me. The carbonation was on the light side and the color was dark but not super dark.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle from both CAH and Capone’s. Pours onyx w 1f brown head. Nose is roasty dark malt and chocoff. Tastes of choc malt, dark choc syrup, raisins, hops, and damned if IU didn’t get a mild clam juicey flavor in this, perhapss an homage to Yards Love Stout. Complex palate and a delicious beer.

I love this stout. It has a cherry chocolate edge to it, a fresh chocolate malt aroma with a hoppy edge and the oysters give it a dryness which seem to balance out the other flavors. Perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness IMHO. I’m not a seafood person but could become one fast. The only aspect of this preventing perfection is a bit of a resiny tone in the finish.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle shared by cbkschubert at Hellbilly’s Shootout in Sosco Tasting. Pours a deep dark mahogany with a thin beige head. The nose is dark chocolate, minerals, roasty malt and coffee. The taste is charred caramel malt, ash, baker’s chocolate and some coffee in the finish. Medium bodied. Nice stout – thanks Craig!

Brown pour with tan head and lace. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Chocolate and toasted malt flavor. Silky body and smooth. Very nice.

Bottle. pours a dark brown but wet looking liquid with wet, bubbly brown suds atop. Nose is vibrant, sweet, chocolaty, but also a little salty (oyster?), toffee-like, nutty..in fact, for semi-low gravity stout (compared to what i usually like), it smells quite nice. Smooth, nutty & chocolate flavors and I wouldn’t notice it if I didn’t know and could probably just be making stuff up, but I notice a briny character from the oysters which does seem to compliment the other characteristics nicely. I’ve always enjoyed a drier-like stout with oysters, and though I don’t have any oysters on me right now, I think this beer would be a good match. Body is a little lacking I guess, but not really for the style nor for pairing with oysters, so I guess that’s my fault for drinking too many imperial stouts and not many lower abv ones. Certainly a flaw free dryer stout with brinish/mineralic tendencies..not bad.

Pours black with a mocha head. Nose is roasted malts and coffee beans. Taste is smooth chocolate and roasted malts and barley. Good stout, but missing something to make it great.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2010
bottle pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is light brine and brown sugar. Flavor is toasted malts with lots of nutty and burnt character. Ends with a light brine and soft floral notes that seem odd, but work.
