A CAN into a regular kitchen glass. Picked this one up as a single off the shelf. Canned on 11/19/2012. An Oyster Stout brewed with Hog Island Sweetwater Oyster Shells. 7.9%. FRESH!

Marooned pours out dark, it globs out the CAN and looks a black shade in the glass. Up towards the close light a very faint speckle of light can creep through. A nice looking body with a inch of firm foamy tan skim that lasts. No lacing to speak of which is odd, thought id see some. Marooned has a magnificent nose. In this fresh CAN I get the sea, i get the stout, i get the roast. Oyster stout indeed. Also hinting towards some milk, cocco, espresso beans and vanilla bean. The taste is quite nice per the style. Reminds me of a sweeter Dry Irish Stout with more flavor and body and alcohol. The oyster plays apart in straying this stout from the ever growing group of other stouts out there. Taste include pretty much everything stated above in the smell section. The sweetness is there but not overbearing. A great mix. I pick up 21st Amendment products because they are not afraid to go there.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with light to moderate amounts of soft and fine visible carbonation and some dark amber highlights at the edges of the glass when held up to the light. The beer has a two finger tall light tan head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a small slightly thicker patch of medium sized bubbles and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of dark roasted malts and light ocean brininess.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate amounts of dark roasted malts with just a subtle hint of chocolate. The finish of this beer is lightly briny and offers some light to moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Just shy of full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Robust and chewy with light to moderate amounts of alcohol heat in the finish.

O: This is an enjoyable oyster stout that is more rich, complex, and chewy unlike some of the others that are usually more of a dry stout style. I wish the alcohol was a little more well hidden in the mouthfeel like it is for the smell and taste. Fairly easy to drink and one I will be happy to enjoy the remainder of the 4 pack.
