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 Jerseys 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 (theres 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

Dark pour with a small head. Aroma has roasted malts and a touch of dark chocolate. Flavor is sweet, smooth, nice level of roasted malts, not too bitter at all. Slight complexity but doesnt scream ocean to me. A solid stout overall and very drinkable. Really quite enjoyable and finishes dry and with a slight saline aspect.

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a tan haze. Nose is chocolate and coffee; some molasses but no apparent saltiness. Medium body but nicely quenching with soft carb. Taste is not too roasty coffee and brown sugar. Smooth with notes of minerals and brine. Chocolate finish that lingers. Solid; easy drinking.

Bottle Pitch black ale with a small, creamy, beige head. The nose offers chocolate, vanilla and a faint mineral note. Medium-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor is sweet chocolate with a splash of sweetened espresso. Sweet, lightly tangy finish with a rumor of salt.

by way of cbk on 3/21/10. pours a black shade of brown with a spotty off white head. it smells and tastes of roast with some ash, chocolate, toasted nuttiness, caramel and some calcium... it is a touch bitter on the finish and a little bit saline in the finish... well ill be... medium bodied with a nice crisp texture to balance out the smoothness. 8/4/8/4/16/4.0

This one wasnt really super exciting in terms of aroma and flavor. The aroma was sort of bland and boring while the flavor was flat and didnt do anything for me. The carbonation was on the light side and the color was dark but not super dark.

DocLock (10215) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle from both CAH and Capones. Pours onyx w 1f brown head. Nose is roasty dark malt and chocoff. Tastes of choc malt, dark choc syrup, raisins, hops, and damned if IU didnt get a mild clam juicey flavor in this, perhapss an homage to Yards Love Stout. Complex palate and a delicious beer.

I love this stout. It has a cherry chocolate edge to it, a fresh chocolate malt aroma with a hoppy edge and the oysters give it a dryness which seem to balance out the other flavors. Perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness IMHO. Im not a seafood person but could become one fast. The only aspect of this preventing perfection is a bit of a resiny tone in the finish.

Bottle shared by cbkschubert at Hellbillys Shootout in Sosco Tasting. Pours a deep dark mahogany with a thin beige head. The nose is dark chocolate, minerals, roasty malt and coffee. The taste is charred caramel malt, ash, bakers chocolate and some coffee in the finish. Medium bodied. Nice stout thanks Craig!

Bottle. pours a dark brown but wet looking liquid with wet, bubbly brown suds atop. Nose is vibrant, sweet, chocolaty, but also a little salty (oyster?), toffee-like, nutty..in fact, for semi-low gravity stout (compared to what i usually like), it smells quite nice. Smooth, nutty & chocolate flavors and I wouldnt notice it if I didnt know and could probably just be making stuff up, but I notice a briny character from the oysters which does seem to compliment the other characteristics nicely. Ive always enjoyed a drier-like stout with oysters, and though I dont have any oysters on me right now, I think this beer would be a good match. Body is a little lacking I guess, but not really for the style nor for pairing with oysters, so I guess thats my fault for drinking too many imperial stouts and not many lower abv ones. Certainly a flaw free dryer stout with brinish/mineralic tendencies..not bad.
