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.

Hog island, philadelphia: at one point the largest shipyard in the world, now home to the most ineffecient and poorly designed hub airport in the world, the bitthplace to the hoagie sandwich. Lots o history here and Yes, lots of people have been marooned here... Espcially with the gracious help of UsAirways F in the A connections. Can pours motor oil black with a thin tan head with no retention. Nose of mild roast, grass. Taste is astringent. Dark caramel, and roastiness on the finish. Kinda of one demential. Body is thin.

Can. Pours deep, dark brown with thick, fizzy tan head; decent retention and lacing. Aroma is roasted and caramel malts, cocoa, chocolate, plums, raisins, floral hops, and light vanilla. Flavor is roast malts forward with supporting dark fruit esters, vanilla, light toffee, and strong earthy hops at the finish; dry, bitter, ashy finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Very dark pour with little to no head. Unique to say the least, but not in a bad way. Malty and thick tasting. A hint of salt is notable in the mix. Hands down one of the best canned beers. No real alcohol taste and no after taste. Very drinkable, and very good!

12 oz can from Giant Eagle on Rte 8 in Pittsburgh. This was good but I noticed a semi-foul odor in the first sniff. The overall saltiness takes a while to get used to but most will enjoy for what it is.

bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2013
This is a very unquie Stout cant say I have ever had one like it. Pour in dark brown in color with a great tan head that is full of very tiny tight bubble head that almost looks like milk shake. Aroma is malty,sweet and has alcohol notes that are like sherry. Full body and bitter but a little to much alcohol on the finsh.

Darwenus (1068) - Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2013
The body is almost flat, with little head, but very dark brown with rust highlights. The aroma is salt, chocolate and coffee. Those flavors dominate the flavor, too, and its just damn good. There is hardly any presence of hops, just a lot of salt, chocolate and coffee. I love this and I hope I can find it again.

Not a bad oyster stout. Nose is sharp and mostly roasted malt with notes of almost sea water. Taste is plenty of roast and some sharp malts. Smooth and drinkable, especially since this isnt really my style.

12oz can. Pours pitch-black in color, with a moderate head of tan foam. Aroma is subtle coffee and chocolate notes. Taste is roasty, chocolatey, with a subtle brininess. Very tasty and well balanced. No evidence of oysters at all!
