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.

Capa (2861) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Dark with a tan head. Aroma is roasted, sweet, chocolate. Medium, smooth body with a finish of light tingly carbonation. Flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, a bit of burnt sugars, light coffee. Finish is lightly bitter from the roasted malts. Solid stout, but less oyster than most oyster stouts Ive had.

BroSpud (2105) - , Massachusetts, USA - NOV 14, 2016
12oz can. Pours dark mahogony with a head that doesnt stick around too long. Still trying to figure out this whole oyster stout thing. Im not a huge fan of oysters in general but this stout is delicious. Is it the oysters? Probably not. Lots of other flavors in there like molasses and chocolate. Oysters not so much. But this is good.

ordybill (1447) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ. can into a point glass at the Taco Mac in Atlanta, GA. The appearance is pitch black with a tan head. The aroma is full of malt and chocolate. The taste follows the nose.

Can poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, cocoa and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, light roastiness and light coffee with a smooth lingering cocoa finish.

geologyguy (1380) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Smell is great roasted sweet malt...taste is the same...smooth with good sweetness and less bitterness..high flavor and very nice black/dark red appearance...medium complexity...could drink a couple in a row...but def a heavier beer without watery finish

Bebum (806) - USA - SEP 30, 2016
Opaque brown. Full body, flavorful, smooth texture, long taste. Bitter moderately, dryish, crisp. Roasty flavors, coffee, dark chocolate. Well rounded, enjoyable, not exceptional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thegreenrooster (4096) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Pour is a black with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt a little black licorice and some sea salt brine. Flavor is a nice roasted malt with chocolate and coffee notes. A nice roast and salinity is left on the tongue. Not a over the top rich and roasted stout but plenty flavorful with some brine fron the oyster shells giving this beer a little something extra.

PorterPounder (7542) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl - Momos Pizza - Northeast - on tap. Viscous, dark black, motor oil-like pour - light mocha colored head. Olive oil and topsoil in the aroma, but otherwise pretty neutral. Bittersweet chocolate, some topsoil, a touch of pipe tobacco, a slight whisper of licorice. Slick mouthfeel that thickens as it warms. Pretty decent.

Cybercat (5241) - Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Taps coffee sable with a thick tan head. Aroma offers molasses, roasted malt, quality coffee, and semi-sweet chocolate plus a snip of oyster. Flavor nicely echoes the aroma while emphasizing chocolate and oyster. Viscous mouthfeel features good fizz. What better place to get marooned?

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2016 Can courtesy of joe. Dark black. Thin head. Dark roasted coffee. Slightly salty. Wish they did more stouts. Not really getting the oysters, so it must be working well. Very easy drinking.
