COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When life gives you oysters, be sure to brew some killer oyster stout. That’s exactly what Nico Freccia and Shaun O’Sullivan, 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.

I will start out by saying that I have only had a few different oyster stouts, but out of the several so far, I liked this the least. This was worthwhile to try, but it is a good beer, not a great beer. It pours dark brown almost black and has a nutty/chocolate aroma. It has a chocolate/smoky aftertaste. If you have not tried an oyster stout before, try this one and you won’t be disappointed. Well, maybe you will be but quit being a beer snob and just kick back and relax and enjoy your beer!

Dan's Stag. Hotel room tasting. Can. Almost clear brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, decent fine minerally carbonation. Thin dark malts, little thin dark malt cream. Touch of dry dark chocolate. Little chocolate covered dark fruits. Light dry finish. Mild chocolatey linger. Thin but tasty.

Scopey (17083) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2018
Can at LKS Bristol Sexpad. It pours dark brown - black with a small beige. The aroma is earthy, roasted malt, sticky, juicy dark fruits, fruit pie and compote. The taste is dry, bitter - sweet, toasty, earthy, jammy berry, fruit compote, bit of spice, peppery, Eccles cake, charred wood and roasted malt with a drying finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well rounded and scoopable.

SG111 (2243) - New York, USA - NOV 8, 2017
Canned. Pours deep black, with a pretty tan/beige head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, briney, roasted malt. Nice. Flavor is sweet chocolate, a bit thin, and kinda effervescent but it has that briney "oyster" taste, roasted malt, decent little bit of coffee presence. Quite thin for an almost 8% stout. But I'm a fan of this one. Very pleasant. Worth drinking.

3.9
geolgau (544) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - AUG 30, 2017
Sweet and chocolate-y. Silky roastiness, sweet cocoa, filter coffee, dark malts, alcohol spiciness and a bit of molasses. Slightly bitter and a bit of sea salt in there.

A opaque black color with a short-lived head of light tan foam. The aroma is weakly comprised of chocolate malt. The flavor is a silky but dry roast coffee and cocoa. The oyster shell is more of a gimmick than a contributor to the style.

elihapa (1555) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUL 18, 2017
can, $2.99. Pours medium brown, off white head shows good retention. Smoky, pencil lead, medium dark chocolate and hazelnut on nose. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Flavor lands softly, threading toasted brown malt notes with something darker and more earth driven. Perhaps the salt in the oysters brings richness, though I didn’t detect any distinctive flavor notes. I don’t know if this is worth seeking out for that reason, but the brew remains very satisfying overall

3.9
Voodoo (733) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2017
pours a near black with a creamy tan head which dissipated quickly......aroma of chocolate, mineral, slight coffee ground......taste is very smooth with a full mouthfeel, mild bitterness, appearance of booze, sweet bread, hint of mineral. Quite nice.
