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.

bhensonb (13520) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 5, 2010
750 from Wine Specialist. Pours black with a three+ finger dark tan head - very creamy. Primarily dark roasted/burnt malt for aroma, but there is something unusual. Full bodied with sharp, foamy carbonation. Flavor is the malt bitter, with a touch of coffee, and something sweet that goes in and out. Very nice. Gets more coffee with time. No detectable Ostreidae bits, but there’s something more than usually smooth about this very good stout.
