In this blog, we are going to get into another brew from 21st Amendment Brewery. It is their Marooned On Hog Island Stout. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this west coast craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know 21st Amendment Brewery. Let us get into this special stout.
It has a jet black color without a head but the head that was there is a tan color. The aroma has a chocolate to coffee notes. The taste has a slime chocolate with a burned malt to coffee notes for the aftertaste. It is a nice sipping beer.
Here is a description from the beer can:
Exhausted by the tedious work and rancid beer, deck swabs O’Sulivan and Freccia abandoned Sir Francis Drake’s Galleon. Days later, they washed up on a tiny island in Tomales Bay, where they encountered local oyster Farmers John and Terry. Soon, these beer mutineers and oyster mercenaries were feasting on roast pig, fresh oysters and goblets of the Captain’s finest ale. They could think of worse fates than being…
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, I have always love stouts. I am pretty much in love with stouts made with oysters. My first ever stout with oysters was from Flying Dog. These stouts are really unique and it takes stout and oyster fans to love this unique beer style. The oysters make this stout a little slime like notes with some nice chocolate to coffee notes. I love it. There is a nice balance in this brew. I cannot wait to see this brew next season or everyday. There is no information on their website. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
