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.

12 oz can into a snifter... black with a small fleeting coarse fizzy, light tan head. Aroma is light roast, and a little licorice and chocolate. Flavor is similar but more of a straight forward roasted stout. Bitter enough I think to move it out of the "foreign" and into main stream stout. fairly well attenuated and ballanced bitterness. Again, drier than most foreigns and if that flavor is oyster shells..not sure if it works for me.

Light roastiness up front. Toffee and milk chocolate mid-palate with hints of salt and sea breeze. Light roasted malt throughout. Moderate dark chocolate bitterness. Lingering chocolate sweetness and hints of brine. Medium-full body with a mostly creamy feel. Not bad.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 Poured from 12 oz. can. Opaque, black-brown with a large, billowy khaki head and stunning lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, fudge, roasted malt, oyster shells and sweet caramel. Taste of sweet roasted malt, caramel, sweet fudge, sea shells, peat and molasses. Light/medium body and low/medium carbonization with a light mouthfeel that seems too thin for such a full flavor red stout. The flavor of this beer improved dramatically once the beer warmed up a bit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Interesting beer. Black pour, fizzy tan head. Aroma is malty, a bit of burnt toast. Flavor also has a bit of burnt toast to it with a saltiness. Is it from oyster shells or is it the power of suggestion? Not really sure, but it makes for an interesting flavor.

jgb9348 (5920) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Deep dark brown coloured body with a tint of a ruby glow at the bottom and a nice, thick four centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of cherries, milk, roasted malt, caramel, vanilla and quite a bit of chocolate notes. Full-bodied; Dense chocolate and roasted malt flavours with a lot of toffee and earthy notes and a good subtle complexity of a little brine from oysters. Aftertaste shows a great balance of roasted malt and some sweet flavours with a subtle salty flavour and a good complexity to finish off. Overall, a very nice beer with a great mouthful and a very nice complexity throughout - definitely worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 04-January-2013 for US$2.99 sampled at home in Washington on 06-July-2013 in remembrance of the poor folks who died or were injured in Asiana flight 214 from Seoul to San Francisco.

12 oz can. It pours a nice dark orange/brown color with a rather fizzy yet thick tan head. The aroma is mixed. Theres some nice chocolaty notes in there and maybe a hint of mocha but also a slight green apple twang and alcohol. The flavor is decent with more chocolate to go with some sweet brown sugar and a little more of that off note Im not really getting the brininess that I was hoping for. It does have a silky, full mouthfeel though. The finish has a little more roast and a bit of cloying brown sugar. Overall, not too bad, but slightly disappointing and not worth the money.
