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

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 absolutely LOVE this beer! My favorite of all time. Been trying to get a close second and can't seem to find one. Great taste! Wish this was year round. I'd buy it year round with no hesitation!

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.

This was handed to me with a finger of deep-brown head interlaced with black and shifting around like Rorschach's mask. It eventually settled into a slick of brown foam on top of an inky black beer. Its color was midnight black with ZERO light penetration. The nose had notes of coffee, chocolate, mocha, and even a bit of charcoal. Mouthfeel wavered between medium and full with the coffee and charcoal up front followed by a more mellow mocha sweetness and a dark chocolate finish. Owner Gene Muller stated that they had never before made a stout and I hope that they do not stop now, by golly! It was a phenomenal entry in the series, even if I have missed a couple of Exits in my journey.

Absolute black body, topped by a huge fluffy rocky dark tan/brown head. Terrific lacing. Just wish the head would stay longer.

Big rich roast coffee nose. Expected more from the oysters though.

Terrific taste of dark coffee and chocolate. Not getting the oysters, but don't care either.
Earthy hops are just right seasoning on top.

Creamy mouthfeel seems like it has Hershey syrup running through it.

Definitely drinkable, a joy at that.

A gem from Flying Fish.

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.

12oz bottle (Best Before Date: 1-09-15) into a snifter glass...a day shy of 6 months old.

A- Pours pitch black with about 1/2 finger of a soapy, khaki head dissipating rather quickly. (4.0)

S- Aroma is comprised of coffee, milk chocolate and a hint of berry. The oyster mineral/brine component is definitely present and quite dominant, yet melds well with all the others. (4.75)

T- Milk chocolate is perceived first followed by a mild berry-like sweetness. Coffee astringency is soft which quickly succumbs to a briny and dry finish. No alcohol is detected. (4.75)

M- Despite 7.5% ABV, the body is rather thin. Although it poured with a conservative head, a good amount of creamy carbonation was left behind, further accentuating Exit 1's dryness on the palate. (3.75)

O- This is one of the best examples of the style, largely due to the fact that the contribution from the oysters are absolutely present in all aspects of the beer: nose, flavor and mouthfeel. I would, however, enjoy Exit 1 a bit more if it possessed more substantial (i.e. chewy) body...mashing at a higher temperature would achieve this result, but more malt would need to be used to achieve the same ABV. (4.5)

Got a growler from Buy Rite North Plainfield. Poured into a snifter; since I'm oh so classy.
Drank this last night so it's relatively fresh in my head

A: Black with a thin head and some lacing.

S: Deep roasted dark chocolate and coffee

T: Starts out surprisingly crisp with a slight hop bitterness contrasted by chocolate with a touch of sweetness. The taste then turns (And this part I will remember forever) to a charred wood taste - as if burnt pieces of wood from the fireplace were in this beer - and I absolutely love it. Not overpowering or offensive but unmistakeable. One of a kind.

M: Medium bodied with a dry finish.

O: My first Oyster Stout and it was a memorable one. Try this for a fresh take on stouts.

I was a huge fan of FF beers when I could get them easily. Their Farmhouse Ale was the best US produced style of an import I had ever had for years. I find they have slipped a bit over the years so I am excited to try a special beer from them.

Absolutely jet black in color. Nice tight cocoa head that fades way too fast for me. Moderate roasted and cocoa aroma. Big roasted flavor without being too astringent. Deep roasted grain taste here. Dark chocolate and a slight mocha tinge. No sense of oysters or their essence though I could see the connection here. Somewhat briny, if thats not too far a reach. Great body-really a solid mouthfeel. Great drinkability-very well rounded and balanced. Could do this one all night-early and often-just like how I vote!
