BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Flying Fish Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States
flyingfish.com

Style: Foreign / Export Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Exit 1 is beer brewed with oysters. The creamy flavor of English chocolate and roasted malts harmonizes with minerals from oyster shells. Irish ale yeast adds a bit of fruitiness and a dry crispness. The rich stout is perfect for cool weather-and especially delicious when paired with a few Jersey oysters on the half shell.

I tend to like oyster stouts fit the summer. That little hit of sea salt makes for an almost gose lite experience in a stout. Alas, this example from a bottle is lot tamer than many taproom samples of the style, so don't be put off by the oyster. It's the least bit briny or seabrite, but still tasty.

Appears dark brown when the light shines thru. Exemplary long lasting beaver-brown head. Aroma is smooth and sexy...if treacle can be described as sexy. Chocolate, toasted malt and a bright fruit element. Feel might be too slick for its own good. A dash too much diacetyl here. Fought off by good dose of carbonation and slightly acrid finish.
Chocolate, coffee grounds, and a tartness akin to cranberries. Fruitiness almost makes me think this is a blueberry stout, which is a good thing. Nice level of roast to it; mild toffee sweetness.

Overall, the briny goodness I seek in an oyster stout is beyond subtle to point of non-existent. I'm digging the chocolate-blueberry vibe.

Definitely one of my favorites, especially that it always seems available when in season here in NJ. Easy to drink, smells and tastes great, and not what you'd expect if you've never had an oyster stout before.

12 oz bottle (use by 11-3-17) drank on 12/29/16, poured into a tulip.

Solid black in color with no discernable hue other than black. The head is cocoa brown, 1F, and does a fast fade to a film and leaves heavy drape lacing.

Roast chocolate malt, some coffee, salt marsh, sweet and dry like Irish stout or seaweed on a Jersey beach. This beer smells like the Jersey Shore, high praise indeed !!!

Liquid dark chocolate with sea salt, 70% cocoa minimum. Some salt water taffy sweetness.

Silky smooth medium body with a touch of carbonation tingle for the tongue. The 7.5% abv is well disguised and the flavor hangs on like coffee sans the nutty character.

I'm a Jersey boy, born and bred. And I dig a Jersey brew that comes through. Well done, boyz.

12 oz. bottle hard-poured into tulip. Sell by 11-15, so pretty old. Came in a six-pack.

L - Really dark brown, almost black color with milk-brown head. Hard-pouring down the center gave a thick two-finger head. Lacing attaches to the glass but mostly falls back into the beer.

S - dark chocolate malt, roasted malt, brown sugar, "driving into a shore town" smell. Semi-salty air backs up the stout roastiness.

T - milk chocolate, dark chocolate, briney slipperiness, black coffee. Dry stout with a little bit of sea salt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Oysters mellow out the malt and brings more dryness to the beer.

F - Medium body, watery feel. Black coffee lingers on the tongue. Really sticks on the palate. Nice beer with drink and eat with.

O - Do not be discouraged by the "brewed with oysters" tag. They use shells instead of the meat to get the salty-briney flavor of the shells. Try it if you like dry stouts. I have yet to have one with seafood but I could imagine the pairing would be spectacular. Big fan of oyster stouts ever since I had one at Vault Brewing Company. Must-try if you are a real stout fan. Cheers!

Poured into a large ale glass: color is black, solid, head is tan and presents about 1 inch thick then disspates to ring.

Smell is earthy, bitter, slight chocolate note; the scent eludes to an ale that straddles the sweeter stouts and the dryer irish stouts.

Taste is very similar to the aroma: fairly earthy start, somewhat dryer than the aroma hints at then some pleasant roast and chocolate, light note of espresso.

Mouthfeel is very pleasant for stronger/sweeter style stout: perfect carbonation, nice lingering balance of sweetness and earthy bitterness, slight fullness in the tongue.

Overall, a very good stout, great balance and the added unique quality from the oyster, mainly in the mouthfeel and maybe the earthier aroma.
