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

NikkTwist (3100) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Draft at Khyber Pass. Opaque black pour with a large frothy beige head. Dark caramel meets heavy milk chocolate cocoa. Body is thick but the palate is thin. Reminiscent of an Oyster Stout but missing the saltiness (and the oysters.) Bit disappointed. Good but not extraordinary.

Dark beer with a short lived brown head. Nice roasty malt nose. Sweet stout with some roasted grain, toast, milk chocolate and some lactose. Ive never really got what oysters add to beer, but this is a tasty stout.

Underdogs88 (325) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 14, 2014
The aroma is full of chocolate and licorice with a slight burnt note. Black color with a tan head with ok head retention. The flavor is a mostly smooth roasted malt complexity with some noticeable fruity esters on the front and middle end of the taste. The end note contains a hop and roasted grain bitterness to balance some of the maltiness. Medium-full body with silky creaminess and a dry endnote. Overall, a great tasting stout. I would buy this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to Nathan. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is strong. roast and salt. Medium mouthfeel with strong roast and salt with nice dry finish. Good.

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Pitch black body with a tall, dense and persistent brown head on top. Great looking stout!
Aroma: The aroma leans a bit sweet with chocolate and mild roasted malts, theres a mild dryness contributed, I assume by the Irish yeast. It certainly has the Irish yeast aroma.
Taste: This is a very solid imperial stout with a touch of chocolate sweetness to compliment the shy roasted malts. The chocolate reminds me of syrup a little a semi-dry and quick finish. This is a very nice stout.
Palate: Full-bodied, but not super thick. The carbonation is mild as well.
Overall: This is one of the best oyster stouts that Ive had. I like the malt profile and the drinkability is high. No brine worth noting, but this is very good beer, well worth trying once.

Really well done brew. Pours black with a fluffy brown head. Aroma is full of malt, roast, and tobacco. Creamy in the mouth, with a bitter finish.

ganache (5773) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2014
12 oz bottle of the re-release, this one is 7.5% abv. Nose is wonderfully roasty, dark with tar and ash, some tobacco, and the chocolate is kept to a bare, dark minimum. Pours inky brown-black with subtle ruby highlights and a tight, sudsy light brown head. Light body edging toward watery, sweet with the ash/tar/tobacco mentioned before, a really nice roast character not pushed to the side by lactose or other additives. Fruitiness is there but vague, its earthy and light mineral character adds a bit of a sharp bite and significant tang, and theres some creaminess too smooth the acidity. If I had my druthers, Id like this to be drier, but its pretty darn tasty as is.
