From a Can

Just having a meal at the house with Jack recently and I decided to open one of the beers trying to hide in the back of the fridge. I must admit, at first I overlooked this beer because it was in a can. How thoughtless of me! Good things can come from a can too!

I had Marooned on Hog Island by 21st Amendment Brewery of San Francisco, CA at 7.9% abv.

This beer is an oyster stout! The second one of its kind that I’ve gotten to try. I have to say, the beer is pretty well done!

Lots of chocolate and malts to compliment the very light tangy brine flavor, almost like smoked seafood. Combined with the roasted malts it gives is a tasty earthiness. Also, light coffee and caramel, creamy. Not bad, and at 7.9% its got a bit more kick than the other oyster stout I’ve tried.
