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 Jersey’s 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 (there’s 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

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.

3.2
BeerandBlues2 (13719) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours opaque black with a medium, fizzy tan head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is roast and chocolate malt, light Oyster notes, prunes and figs with earthy hops. Flavor is dark malt dominant, lightly tart dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with Oyster notes and a dry finish. Medium to full body and medium carbonation.

4/5/14 $3.29 bottle bought at CBO. Drank at home after eating at Isabelbyob. Not a great stout but not bad. Overall, a pretty average beer that could benefit from "something" ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scotchzombie (608) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2014
Pours dark dark brown with a foamy, lumpy mocha head that darker at bottom than top. Aroma is aroma is roasted malt with a touch of chocolate. Taste is sweet chocolate malt, slightly roasted. There is a bitter coffee earthy oysterish flavor on the back end. This beer has a great smooooorh mouthfeel. Not salty; not fishy. Good.

CelticJohnny (73) - New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2014
Poured into snifter. Nice head that disappears quick and khaki-colored. All black. Smells like the typical stout. Chocolate, roast malt, caramel. Tastes basically the same as the smell. Hardly any oyster brininess. The palate is lightly medium and sort of oily on my tongue. Pretty good, wish I had some oysters right now! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was a very good oyster stout. the shellfish didn’t take over the entire beer. A must try of this is your style

3.8
suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Black pour. Big dark tan head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma of malt and chocolate with a bit of licorice. Not much though. Taste is malt, coffee, chocolate and roast. Creamy finish with a slight bitterness.

3.4
Ricoslim (116) - - MAR 14, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Not very thick but very smooth. Aroma is chocolate and malty. The oyster really comes through in the after taste.

3.5
r464 (2362) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Smooth, but not extremely thick or creamy. Deep roasty malt, hints of coffee, and a long finish. Just a little sweetness at first, then a full body that trails off slowly. Probably the best oyster stout I have tried.

3.7
AKORN (220) - Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 Chocolate and charred malt aroma. Black with small tan head. Chocolate, oak barrel, smoke and finishes with a light bitterness. Good beer
