As you make your way over the Delaware River into the Garden State, you will approach the first exit on Interstate 295. Flying Fish has been brewing beer and spreading the love of New Jersey culture for years. Heck, even the interchange itself is on the label of this beer. Exit 1 is brewed with oysters, a not-so odd ingredient traditional in many UK export stouts. Here, the oysters lend a hint of minerality to the beer. It pours a dark and opaque black with a frothy tan head. Aromas of roasted grain, coffee beans, and dark bitter chocolate come forth. Cocoa, earthiness, and roasted bitterness come forward on the palate. It's dry, like an Irish stout, but with that uneasy twinge of salinity. Maybe it's the idea that oysters were in this beer, but I do feel the presence of the sea in every sip. This is a solid oyster stout indeed.
Beer Description from Brewery
xit 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
