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.

Pours a handsome opaque cola with fluffy chocolate milk head, a good size and lasts for a bit. Nose is coffee with a bit of burnt toast. Palate reinforces coffee, occasionally in espresso bean bitterness, but cocoa and a hint of dark fruit peek out. A bit of hop bitterness, but fortunately its in line with the coffee profile, not dominating it. Theres even an offsetting hint of dark fruit. Where are the oysters? Well, the slick mouthfeel gets balanced by a touch of brine, making for a pleasant experience.

Smooth chocolate aroma thats not overwhelming. Black bodied with finger thick tan head. Mellow chocolate roasted malt taste. Has a slick feel to its full body. Smooth to the finish.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a relatively nice late March Tuesday night listening to records. Appearance is pitch black, moderate tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of chocolate and oysters, also a bit of espresso, smells nice. Taste equally nice, good chocolate profile, bit of nuts, definite oysters which is unique. Im liking this one.

Can at Hog Island with BBQ Oysters. Creamy nose, lots of umami, light oyster, cocoa, some coffee. Nice body. Hides the alcohol well.

Pour is a dark purple with red and brown accents to it. Very low carbonation, no head or anything. Looks like an oil slick. Smell is sweet ocean air, cut grass, vanilla, very sweet. Taste is similar: a light and balanced sweetness with roast and malt in the background.

On tap @ 21A San Leandro. Cola colored beer with a khaki head. Huge roasted malt and cocoa powder nose. Theres some nice fruity qualities to it as well. Sweeter than expected with flavors of fudge and hazelnut, but some nice enough bitterness on the back end. Hints of coffee, subtle brine and mineral notes, and some burnt toast. One of the better 21A beers Ive had in awhile.

Shared can with a Christmas movie. Delicious. One of the best oyster stout Ive ever tasted. Just the right amount of roasty notes. Really smooth, medium mouthfeel. Hops add bitterness but dont overpower with citrus/floral/pine. The oyster shells make it- super briny. Tastes like my hair after surfing. Delicious.

Aluminum can from Sprouts: Poured an opaque dark brown liquid that created a monstrous sizing of foam. Aroma is mild with hints of roasted malts, sugary marshmallow, and cocoa powder. The drink is mostly bitter with influences of chocolate and cocoa nib while the palate is smooth and oily. Very dry residue left behind in the finish. For sure taste like an oyster stout and was extremely well balanced body.

Can to snifter. Pours dark black, small head, off white. Aroma is malt, salt, seaweed. Taste is very minerally, touch of caramel like sweetness at the end, but mostly bitter and dry. Feel is light and thin. Good carbonation for a stout. Not great overall, but enjoyable enough. Cant see myself buying this again.
