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

Poured black with a small brown head. Aroma is very chocolatey with some fruit and coffee. Taste is smooth and rich. A bit dry with lots of roasted malts. Finish is burnt with more coffee and chocolate. Taste is pretty one-dimensional, but the texture is pretty interesting. Aftertaste has some slightly fruity notes. Overall pretty good.

Aroma of chocolate, roast pretzel, and coffee. Pours black and thick. Tastes of coffee, chocolate and a bite.of thick Amish pretzels. Starts black and ends salty sweet. Great stout.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 30, 2011
750ml bottle. Rating #109. Very dense black pour with a little brown along the top edge and a dissipating medium brown head that left some spotty lacing. Very rich aroma, almost imperial stoutish. I’m getting a lot of dark fruits, a little sweet, toffeeish and a hint of soy sauce, really nice. Flavor is a little roast and even a hint of a smoky ashiness that is very pleasing. (1695)

BillWyce (1104) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Poured inky black with a cocoa-colored dark tan head. Aroma was mostly of chocolate with some grain mixed in. Deep palate with a slight thickness to it. Mild chocolatey taste that takes on a bit of coffee in the finish. A grainy note becomes more evident as it warms a little. Worth finding while it’s still available, as I haven’t heard of plans to make this an ongoing release as Flying Fish did with Exit 4.

(Sample Date: 3/12/2011 Source:BrewEngineer) Salty roasty notes in the aroma with lots of chocolate. Black with small tan head. Roasty chocolate with a bit of astringency. Dry and moderately bitter. Medium body with lightly salty slick mouth feel. Tasty

Chocolate coffee aroma on this black pour with a chocolate head. Iced coffee flavor with subtle sweetness. Smooth finish.

Styles (2016) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Dark brown, 1 finger beige head. Chocolate, lots of clean roast, light coffee. Nice combo of flavors, chocolate, coffee, roast, light tartness. Very well attenuated, quite dry for everything going on. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Hides the alcohol quite well. Very easy drink.

Bottle: The aroma consists of dark chocolate, black licorice, vanilla, and light roasted coffee. It pours a dark brown, virtually black, with no transparency and a small tan head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The flavor starts with lots of chocolate. There’s a mild fruitiness in the background. The chocolate turns more towards dark chocolate in the finish along with some black licorice,roasted coffee, and a hint of smoke. Medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and somewhat soft mouthfeel.
