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 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!

Pours a solid finger plus head of a quite dark brown color, even surface, retention is not that great though and the lacing, while broad, tends more to slide down than stick. The liquid is a fully opaque brownish black, suggests clarity rather than sediment, just about impossible to gauge the visible carbonation level. The nose is sweet, delivering chocolate, licorice, milk and hard butterscotch candy notes, nutty and not overly toasted, doused campfire smoke, nothing acrid or burnt about it, satisfying if simple. Full-bodied, lacks carbonation which gives it a sort of sluggishness yet there’s no denying the sheer depth of flavor. Loaded with chocolate, caramel, heavy cream and licorice, here you get some cherry to blackberry styled fruit as well. That seashore brine quality is not overpowering and more or less stands in for a hops based spine. In spite of the sweetness of the flavors the texture is dry, particularly the finish, which in turn teases out coffee grind nuances. Overall it has deceptive breadth and you find a lot of easy comfort in the flavors, high level of drinkability.

Bottle dated "use by 11-06-15" into pint glass. Engine-oil black with a persistent hocolate-colored head. Fairly chewy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Dark chocolate and malt; bitter finish but not overpowering. Alcohol is well hidden. Another great offering from FF!

Pours a black color with a tan head, the ring like lace is sticky and retains well. There is sweetness in the nose; chocolate, nutty and cake like. Roasted malts and coffee in the taste. Also, nutty. Dry finish, with a lingering bitter hop, woody and burnt mal aftertaste. Overall, I enjoyed.

Another solid selection from Flying Fish. I wasn't sure how much I was going to enjoy this one, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's a crime that these beers tend to sit and sit and sit on the shelves.

Black, tan head
Smell of burnt chocolate. Coffee. Salt.
Brine comes through, chocolate. Coffee
Feel is heavy. Lowish carbonation. I would buy this again.
