21st Amendment's Oyster Stout, called Marooned On Hog Island, is the second Oyster Stout I've tried. I did not enjoy the other brand's Oyster Stout when I had it several months ago, but this one is delicious. The body is almost flat, with little head, but very dark brown with rust highlights. The aroma is salt, chocolate and coffee. Those flavors dominate the flavor, too, and it’s just damn good. There is hardly any presence of hops, just a lot of salt, chocolate and coffee. The salt gives it a really unique quality; kinda like a Starbucks salted latte or a chocolate covered pretzel. I love this and I hope I can find it again.
