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

Dark brown, 1 finger beige head. Chocolate, lots of clean roast, light coffee. Nice combo of flavors, chocolate, coffee, roast, light tartness. Very well attenuated, quite dry for everything going on. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Hides the alcohol quite well. Very easy drink.

Bottle: The aroma consists of dark chocolate, black licorice, vanilla, and light roasted coffee. It pours a dark brown, virtually black, with no transparency and a small tan head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The flavor starts with lots of chocolate. There’s a mild fruitiness in the background. The chocolate turns more towards dark chocolate in the finish along with some black licorice,roasted coffee, and a hint of smoke. Medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and somewhat soft mouthfeel.

Another strong offering from Flying Fish, a brewery that seems to have really hit its stride in the last couple of years. Always well balanced and dependable, the beers have really seemed to come alive recently. This is a fine stout with a great minerality, a slight earthiness, and a strong, but balanced chocolate character.

Black, nice ring of foam. . Smells like coffee, maybe a little red wine. Flavor is coffee, maybe a little salty (?) and dark chocolate and a touch of red wine. Not bad at all. Sampled at 2010 pre-Brewer’s Jam tasting.
