21st Amendment Marooned on Hog Island
From 21st Amendment – When life gives you oysters, be sure to brew some killer oyster stout. That’s exactly what Nico Freccia and Shaun O’Sullivan, co-founders of 21st Amendment Brewery did. In a food+beer collaboration with Hog Island Oyster Company co-founders, John Finger and Terry Sawyer, the 21st Amendment Brewery team has created Marooned on Hog Island, the latest beer in their Insurrection Series, a limited edition, once-in-awhile four-pack release of a very special beer that rises up in revolt against common notions of what canned beer can be. Marooned on Hog Island has an ABV of 7.9% and was brewed using Magnum and Willamette hops with an ale yeast, a variety of malts including Pale, Crystal, Chocolate and Carafa, Rolled Oats, White Wheat and the kicker: 450 pounds of Hog Island Sweetwater oyster shells.
21st Amendment – 21st Amendment Marooned on Hog Island – 12 oz. can poured into a goblet. 7.9% abv.
Appearance: Pours a solid dark brown, letting no light through at all. Atop sits a sparse layer of micro film and a tan ring around the edges.
Aroma: Roasty dark malt, dark chocolate and a little bit of wine.
Taste: Medium coffee roast, black pepper, burnt toast, dark chocolate. A little bit of a twang in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Active spicy carbonation. Full bodied.
Overall: Very simple, and pretty well executed. I usually get a spicy throat coating from oyster stouts, but not this time.
