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

12 oz bottle thanks to Willrunforbeer on this share! Almost a pitch black color with brown highlights around the edges. Aroma is dry roast, light brine, and bakers chocolate.

Body is almost full and in line with the gravity. Texture and mouthfeel is pretty much creamy and smooth. Flavor is old coffee beans, bakers chocolate and light dry roast. Enjoyable!

Lots of roast and chocolate on the nose with an earthy note as well (probably from the oyster shells). Creamy chocolate taste with roasted malt, dark coffee, and that earthy bit again. Really good oyster stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Very well balanced stout that hits many flavor notes- roasted malts, some hop bitterness, moderate coffee and chocolate, bit of sweetness, even some dark fruits. Dark black pour with mocha colored head and lacing. Very well done.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7619) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured black and oily with a medium sized foamy dark brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was bitter and toasty with strong floral hops, smoke and a touch of medicine. The flavor was bitter and toasty with notes of coffee, cocoa, vanilla, floral hops, a bit of dark fruit, but, cola and an earthy note. Nicely complex. Long finish. Moderately full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Interesting.
