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

Bottle. Pours with a tan partially lasting head. Aroma is malty sweet, light roast, moderate minerality. Flavor is more mineral through the middle where fruity malty sweetness come briefly before the roast takes over to ride out eventually playing out with more of the oyster shell again. Feel is moderately lively and then dominated by roast and minerals. Definitely and enjoyable and classic arc in this one.

Bottle from James, thanks! Thick dark black pour with nice chocolate mocha head. Aroma is dark coffee roast, mild hop presence, and molasses. Taste is mild bitter roast up front, medium mouthfeel, a touch of dark fruit sweetness with a bitter roast aftertaste. Nice stout, extremely quaffable for a dark beer.

Pours a dark black with mocha colored head. Chocolate, molasses on the nose. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, bitter roasted malts, hints of vanilla and licorice, sour malty taste at the back of the tongue, somewhat sticky. It?s a decent oyster stout; nothing too interesting.
