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.

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 (8177) - 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.

burg326 (5402) - Florida, USA - APR 22, 2013
12 ounce can poured dark brown with aromas of roast, chocolate, light salt amd some earthiness. Flavors follow suit with a decent amount of roast, chocolate, and earth, a light brineness in the aftertaste, but a solid stout overall.

BillKismet (3919) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2015 Dark chocolate body, with ring of sea foam. Wonder sea-air nose, of brine and salt. Fairly full-bodied with a wonderful debittered, dark malt lattice overlayed with briny shell essence. Hints of smoke mingle with dark roast and salt, contributing a lovely complexity. Well done! Re-rated: 12/2/15:Poofy chocolate head, and a bit more black patent and thinner body than I recall, but otherwise, not bad.

Can from trade with DrSilverworm. Aroma smells sweet theres a good mix of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste moderately sweet and touch of bitterness. Roast, coffee, chocolate. Finish tastes a bit metallic to me, I think that the oysters. I tasted that on the last oyster stout I had. Overall, not bad. I never seem to like the finish on oyster stouts.

lukemundy (33) - California, USA - APR 15, 2013
12 oz. can from Whole Foods in Fresno, CA. Poured into a tulip. Pours a dark, espresso brown with a thick, dirty head that lasts. Smell is roasted coffee, grains, and a little bit of smoke. Taste is more of the coffee with some sweet malts and a briney finish. I haven't had any other oyster stouts, but if this is representative of the style then in a huge fan!

JDBaker11058 (2005) - Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2013
Appearance: typical stout pour, with half a finger of dark tan head. Aroma: roasty malts, with chocolate, coffee, and a hint of licorice. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with the addition of a bit of brine. Finish: bitter dark roasty character lingers, with a hint of astringency and some soy sauce and salt. Notes: An interesting beer. The base stout was plenty good, and the oyster shells added a hint of saltwater. All in all, Im glad I tried it, but probably wont have it again. Frankly, as much as I despise bivalves of all types, it was a miracle this entered my gullet in the first place.
