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

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased today from Perfect Pour. Use by: 01-09-15. Black color. Thin ring of khaki head. Dots and bits of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. A bit thin for a 7.5% stout. Nice light chewiness to it, though. Some dark chocolate, roast, light coffee aroma. Dont get much of the oyster. Maybe a hint of brine? Not much though, relative to other oyster stouts Ive tried. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Decent oyster stout. While a bit thin, its pretty easy drinking. Very nice to enjoy with a seafood dinner. Good bit of chewiness after awhile, after it warms up. Nice.

Ibrew2or3 (8557) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a nice dark body thats nearly black and supporting a mocha colored head. The aroma offers up chocolate, mineral water, spicy hops, earthy chocolate and then a light mix of molasses and dark roasted malts. The taste begins with an influx of chocolaty goodness as well as slivers of molasses and dark roasted malts. It gets a bit earthy and spicy hops to midway and then a mild sense of spicy black licorice amid the chocolate and dark roastiness is noticed. Very nice easy going stout.

Bottle from Frederick wine house. Pours black with a thin khaki head which doesnt leave a lot of lacing. Has some solid cocoa notes on the nose. Fairly dry on the tongue with some solid roasted flavor. Finishes clean. Not bad.

hfmejias (1282) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured black with about a finger and a half of creamy light brown head. Roasted malts are predominant on the nose, some chocolate and some coffee in there too. Taste is of roasted malts, caramel some saltiness that I would assume is from the oysters; sticky dry finish. Overall a very nice beer, quite enjoyable.

Voodoo (647) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Pours a near opaque inky brown with a quickly disappearing light brown head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate. Taste is coffee, sweetness and bitter, touch of booze at the end. A fair mouthfeel fitting well into the style. Nicely done.

zizzybalubba (1850) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Very dark brown, nearly black, pour with a short khaki head. Rich aroma of smoky malts and milk chocolate. The taste is of bitter cacao and espresso beans with very faint floral hops. The finish offers some lingering smokiness but nothing too overwhelming. A great stout.

60minuteman (1648) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2014
Pitch black and vanishing tan legs on the glass. The smell is of dark cacao, tree bark and roasted malts. Thin body and lasting palate. Slightly chewy texture. The main component is dark chocolate bar but it is balanced nicely by the roast.
