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 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.

Bottled. Big, burnt aroma, a pinch of salt, full but one-dimensional. Nice, rich body. Pretty dry, lightly minerally, pleasant but uncomplex.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Bottle sampled on 12/13/09: Pours a mostly opaque oily black with a spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet doughy dark caramel malts and some light fruity notes and a hint of soy sauce. Starts with decent fullness and some molasses and light fruity complexity before a semi-dry toasty finish.

Tried from a large bottle at Woodshop 5.0. Bland. Black color. Small head. I donít think there is anymore t o say. It is really brewed with oysters? Canít tell, though I think calcium carbonate from the oyster shells would be appropriate to lower the mash pH from dark grains.

WeeHeavySD (3359) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle at Woodshop 5.0. Donít really know how I feel about oyster stout. Porus black. Nose has a lot of oyster in it. Taste really does not appeal to me at all. I wrote down F*ck my mouth,

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2010
750 ml bottle courtesy of TheEpeeist. Pours a thick motor oil pitchblack pour, thick and viscous, with a dark brown head, moderate in size, dies to small, with good lacing. Aromas are cocoa, slightly sweeter edged, coffee, roasted malts, a touch of mineral/earthiness, touch of salt, dark and smoothed out. Initial is lighter bodied than anticipated, cocoa and coffee, more cocoa, with roasted malts, a touch of sweet caramel, moving into the oyster element, salty and earthy, a bit of an oyster feel. The finish is roasty and a touch salty, with decent sweetness, palate coater but not overdone, not up there with the kings of stouts. This really does have a salty oyster element, subtle and not fishy like one might think, tasty but a bit confusing.

750ml bottle. Poured a deep black color with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of chocolate, roast, vanilla, and some coffee. Tastes of chocolate, lighter roast, coffee, and some smokiness. Body a bit on the thinner side.
