COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When life gives you oysters, be sure to brew some killer oyster stout. Thats exactly what Nico Freccia and Shaun OSullivan, co-founders of 21st Amendment Brewery did. In a food+beer collaboration with Hog Island Oyster Company co-founders, John Finger and Terry Sawyer, the 21st Amendment Brewery team has created Marooned on Hog Island, the latest beer in their Insurrection Series, a limited edition, once-in-awhile four-pack release of a very special beer that rises up in revolt against common notions of what canned beer can be. Marooned on Hog Island has an ABV of 7.9% and was brewed using Magnum and Willamette hops with an ale yeast, a variety of malts including Pale, Crystal, Chocolate and Carafa, Rolled Oats, White Wheat and the kicker: 450 pounds of Hog Island Sweetwater oyster shells.

Un liquide mis en canette le 19 novembre 2012. Une fois verse, cette bire brune fonce crache des parfums plaisants de malts rtis, de chocolat et de fruits rouges. Dans la deuxime moiti de la dgustation, je sens un lger arme de cendre. Sur les papilles, les malts font pratiquement le mme travail. Il y a une touche surette qui sinstalle mais qui ne drange pas. Je trouve que cette concoction gote lgrement les cerises noires. En bouche, le liquide prsente un corps moyen-faible. Les bulles sont modres. La texture est habilement crmeuse. La finale me semble chocolate et bien amre par le travail des grains malts.

Can from growler and gill. Pours black with half an inch of khaki head. Nice! A bit of oyster and roasted malt on the nose. A bit of roasted malt on the tongue. Mouthfeels a little thin. This one is just not knocking me out.

Nice creamy and smooth somewhat impy stout from 21st. Rich and robust in the chocolate and roast department, but sweetened and creamed by the oyster department. Thick enough to not be super sessionable.

GIJOE (1148) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Poured from a 12 oz. can. Dark brown with a thin pale head. Aroma is a touch of caramel and malt with a hint of metal and oysters. Flavor is on the sweet side, but the hops are distinctly there. Creamy and light. Nice brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A fantastic stout. Pours a thick black with a light tan head. Smells amazing, like cream, and molasses. Taste is similar, very milky and thick, with a slight hoppy finish. Damn good beer. Had at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Most impressive! This is a wonderful little stout from a can. Deep dark cocoa flavors and molasses like sweetness. Slight brine flavor in finish and initial palate bite.

onceblind (9184) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2013
Black with a thin light tan head. Roasty sweet nose with a touch of char, some crystal malts, a bit of chocolate, and just a whiff of caramel. Flavor is really big but not syrupy or wrecking. Huge taste starts off with roasty sweet dark stouty malts, a touch of dry chocolate, an very earthy toffee/caramel undertone. Only a very little touch of brine on the finish that would even let you guess oyster stout...its very hidden. Probably wouldnt have even said so if not for the description/name. Enough bitterness to kick a little bit and balance it all out.
