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.

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.

Great example of the style, with a nice roasty character and a touch of briny or mineral note. I think this really captures the Export/Foreign stout style nicely, deviating from more typical stouts just slightly enough that a blind drinker could tell something was up.

Poured from a bottle shared with my ratebeer husband it is a dark brown color with no head. The aroma is like a fudge store and the taste is strong coffee flavor that changes into a coffee and black licorice aftertaste. Where are the oysters?

Prufrockstar (957) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle, thanks to jtclockwork. Dark pour with brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, spice, mineral, salt. Tastes moderately sweet; there’s a flavor there that’s hard to pin down, so I’m going to call it "oyster?" Lightly bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Goes down surprisingly quick and easy.

Bottle. Pours with a tan partially lasting head. Aroma is malty sweet, light roast, moderate minerality. Flavor is more mineral through the middle where fruity malty sweetness come briefly before the roast takes over to ride out eventually playing out with more of the oyster shell again. Feel is moderately lively and then dominated by roast and minerals. Definitely and enjoyable and classic arc in this one.

Bottle from James, thanks! Thick dark black pour with nice chocolate mocha head. Aroma is dark coffee roast, mild hop presence, and molasses. Taste is mild bitter roast up front, medium mouthfeel, a touch of dark fruit sweetness with a bitter roast aftertaste. Nice stout, extremely quaffable for a dark beer.
