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.

maekchu (3764) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2013
Can from Village Wine & Spirits in Athens. Chocolate, coconut, and something a bit lactic in the nose. Thick dark brown initial / some phenolic nasal bites and good bitterness in mid / light bittering track stay on the tongue inthe finish. Medium body. Pleasant enough. Smooth on the tongue, but also a bit dirty. Would go well with roast pork.

12 oz. can- Pours almost totally black with red highlights and a nice creamy tan head that reduces to a collar and good lace. Aroma is chocolate malts, salty (is that in my mind knowing there are oysters in here?), oatmeal. Taste is delicious actually, creamy, chocolatey, aftertaste you do get salty, dont know a whole lot about oysters, but I think I taste them, again in the aftertaste, would love to try this with fried clams or some other seafood dinner.

Can. Poured dark brown, two finger head that stayed awhile. Aroma of cocoa, caramel, roasted malt, vanilla. Medium sweetness. Light bitter at end. Medium body. Creamy texture. A typical good stout. Didnt get much of the oyster shell notes, maybe some slight saltiness. Pretty good.
