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.

Dark pour with a slightly tan head. Great lace with a very light aroma of roast. Mouth is very creamy. Taste is slightly roasty with hints of brine. Really drinkable.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - JAN 23, 2013
12oz canned November 19, 2012. Served at around 50F.

Pours black with a two finger light brown/beige head that recedes to a wispy cap but leaves nice sheets of lacing behind.

Aroma is roasted malts, strong black coffee, nice briny mineral-type notes, earthy, some chocolate. Very good strength.

Flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, quite a bit of the oysters briny/mineral influence in the flavor. Really nice base stout. Moderate sweetness, mild bitterness, mild to moderate alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, creamy, smooth, moderate to good carbonation.

Realllly nice oyster stout. Perfectly balanced. Excellent base beer, oysters dont overpower nor are they too mild. Really good.

Out of can. Light head med lacing. Chocolate and briny nose. Cacao and seawater briny taste. Smooth but finish is really dry for me. Interesting for sure

mansquito (5956) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Whole Foods, Bowery can ($3): Pours a blackish color with a quickly descending head that leaves lacing. Aroma is chcolate, coffee, and roasted malt, but nothing is really in that strong force. Taste is slightly bitter roasted malts. Somewhat mineral-like taste. Alcohol is well-covered. This doesnt taste like an 8% alcohol stout. Nice subtle sugar notes. Pretty nice and smooth.

jcos (1850) - Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Location/Date:Can on January 20th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours black with light white head.
Aroma: Aroma of roast, some sweetness, salt.
Taste: Similar to the nose, light roast, faint bitter, saltiness.
Palate:Light body, quick finish.

Summary: I dont know when a stout becomes an imperial stout but 7.9% is damn close. This "foreign stout" was real tasty, with a hint of salt in the taste.

obguthr (6096) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Charred oak nose. Murky dark brown, thin tan head. Fig flavor dry, almost briney, but they may be mere suggestion. Solid, but nothing I would seek out.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Can. Pours black with a medium-sized light brown head. Good retention. Aroma is rock solid. Light sweet vanilla and cocoa with a hint of oysters. Medium sweet flavor that quickly turns starboard, then shows pale malt and a light roasty bitter and dry finish. On the nose, the oysters are coming on stronger now. Outside of Hop Crisis, this is the best canned beer Ive had from 21-A.

vtafro (7257) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Can. Dark pour. Dark malt and light bitter finishing aromas. Nice stout tones, clean finish, not even bad as a tailgate brew.

cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Delicious aromas of cocoa nibs, but still very clean. Its as dark brown as it can be without being black, with a light brown head. You can get a briny taste from the oyster shells at the beginning, with a very nice, roasted-chocolatey flavor throughout. Its not over-sweet the way that many chocolate stouts can be, but it has an unquestionably cocoa flavor. The finish gives you more of that briny, saltwater flavor, but in a subtle, delicious way. This is a tremendous stout thats got a lot of fun stuff going on! Stout fans, enjoy this one!

Can poured into a glass which poured a black color with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, with some sweetness with coffee and chocolate. Pretty enjoyable brew here.
