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

Brown pour with tan head and lace. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Chocolate and toasted malt flavor. Silky body and smooth. Very nice.

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.

Pours black with a mocha head. Nose is roasted malts and coffee beans. Taste is smooth chocolate and roasted malts and barley. Good stout, but missing something to make it great.

bottle pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is light brine and brown sugar. Flavor is toasted malts with lots of nutty and burnt character. Ends with a light brine and soft floral notes that seem odd, but work.

The volumes of foam this beer produced in the glass had me thinking I cellared the bottle too long. The four finger head dissipated to reveal a black stout. Flavors of chocolate malt, dried fruit, low bitterness and a dash of salt. Shared with friends on a warm Spring evening. Exit 1 was good, full bodied stout. My palate thought it lacked the flavor to make it an excellent one.

Bottle courtesy of dmac. Thanks Dave. Shared this with the east county crew by design. I had a feeling this one would be interesting and fun for everyone to try. I was pleasantly surprised immedietly by the dark liquid that flowed into our glass. Very thick, dark, oily small tan head. Aroma was malty, fruit, coffee, chocolate, raisin. Taste was outstanding. Well balanced. Little burn, very tasty. Almost no oyster flavor detected by me, but a few others said they could detect some. Overall really good and I am glad I got to try this.

Thanks to Lt. Dan for sharing at Dark Lord. Dark black pour with a tan head. Aroma was rich chocolate malt, roasted malt, and toasted malt. Taste was the same as the aroma, only better. Rich, oily chewy stout that coated your mouth with taste. I could taste a little burnt malt at the end.

750 courtesy of billab914. Pours dark brown with a thin ring of bubbles. Smells of cherries, roasted malt, spicy, earthy. Tastes roasty with some cherry notes dominating. Enjoyable.

750mL bottle. Poured rather highly-viscous dark brown with a mega-deep brown head.. wouldve been a "5" if the head stuck around a little longer. The aroma picked up burnt molasses and black patent maltage upfront, with milk chocolate and light mineral notes accenting (although I probably wouldnt have noticed the minerals in a blind tasting).. warm and chocolatey on the back.. I really dug the nose here. The flavor found black patent and sweeter, milky chocolates all the way through.. vanilla sweetness and a touch of coffee bitterness around.. slightly sour roasty coffee and milk chocolate on the finish. Medium-plus bodied with a nice, heavier feel on the palate.. dry-roasted with a great flow to it.. balance was right on. This was an excellent brew!
