COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For its third stop on our multi-year trip to explore the state of New Jersey through its beer and culture, Flying Fish journeys to Exit 1 for Bayshore Oyster Stout.

Oysters have had a long association with stout in the United Kingdom. This tradition was gradually lost to the rise of pale ales and overharvesting of the oysters. Exit 1 celebrates this tasty combination and New Jersey’s history as one-time oyster supplier to the nation. Our version is an "export style" stout brewed with oysters. The creamy chocolate flavor harmonizes with the minerals from the oyster shells (there’s no actual "oyster" taste). An Irish ale yeast contributes a bit of fruitiness and a dry crispness. This richer, fuller stout is perfect for cold weather and to share with friends over great food. Not to mention with a few oysters on the half shell.

Malts: Malto Franco-Belge Pils Malt, Weyerman Acidulated, White Wheat, Demerara Sugar
Hops: Horizon, Centennial, Ahtanum, East Kent Golding
Yeast: Irish Ale
Original Gravity: 17.6P

Draft pour, jet black with a nice slim tan head, nose is roasted malts, bit of vanilla, not getting much of that oyster addition till later on, overall the mouthfeel is smooth, yet robust, leaves a lingering bitterness, not bad, happy to have a go on draft

12 ounce bottle. Opaque black color topped by a small bubbly tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and charcoal. Flavor is smooth and creamy with roasted malt, chocolate, brine and seaweed. Rich and flavorful with an ashey, fruity dark malt character. Quite good.

Hey, Casey and Drew! What a creation (and BTW, it was great working with you during the summer seasons). The nose is roasty coffee; poured into a Guinness pint glass - traditional black hue with a diminished head). The masterpiece is in its mouthfeel; it’s creamy, weighty, and smooth...almost like a chocolate and coffee milkshake. Solid stout, and it’s from New Jersey. Got a problem with that? Cheers!

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2017 I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours black with a tan head and lacing. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, and earthiness. The taste is chocolate, coffee, smoke, and a subtle, salty earthiness. It?s a nice balance of bitterness and sweetness. This is good.

Bottle. Pour oily black with large spongy tan head, faint mocha aroma, high carbonation, lightly bitter mocha taste with alcohol undertones, faint mineral flavor, thick body, long mocha finish. The occasionally felt mineral taste reminded me of my childhood vitamin drops.

DandyWolfFloyd (1212) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2016
Aroma - roast and coffee. There is just a hint of alcohol. Appearance - body is black, the head is beige and rises 2" with an aggressive pour, then holds very tight settling at a 1/2" slice. Slight legs. Taste - rich roast and premium coffee. Palate - full body, thick feel, average carbonation, dry and roasted astringency finish.
