Doctors once prescribed stout as a revitalising tonic, while brewers enhanced their potency with additional ingredients, like oysters, which had desirable properties of their own. The Three Boys Oyster Stout contains select malt and hops to produce a beer that is rich and complex. And, who knows, our addition of genuine Bluff oysters to this very special brew might be just what the doctor ordered.

Leighton’s flat clearance. Thanks to unclean Daniel. Opaque dark brown beer, tidy tan head. Palate is airy and semi dry, modest fine carbonation. Smooth malts with developing coffee bitterness. Tangy dark fruits. Bitter coffee start to dominate. Dry finish. Fine.

500 ml bottle at Toscana in Te Anau. Very good stout with balance between toasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Addition of oysters adds an extra flavour dimension. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle on yet another trip to Christchurch, the fourth in the past few months. I actually think I’m the town crazy drunk at this point. Hanging by myself, getting poop-faced in various establishments, while my baby daughter sits neglected half the world away. Such is life for a ticker/med device guy, shoving things in urethras by day, crushing Kiwi brews by night, creeping people out no doubt. Had this beer at C1, which was pretty dead on a Monday night. Pomeroys was closed our obv would be there. Black in color with a large, lasting tan head. The aroma is roasty, briny, with espresso. Flavor is dry and a tad salty, very roasty, charcoal, bitter coffee. Medium full body, some prickly carbonation. Very good.

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle thanks to Dirty D. It pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The aroma is sweet, sticky, cocoa, plain chocolate, earthy, liquorice, umami, plum, date and prune. The taste is bitter - sweet, sticky, prune, date, plum, fig, jammy, earthy roast, light spice and salted liquorice with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent enough stout, but no game - changer.
