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.

A pitch black beer with a lot of taste. Lovely dark roasted malts. A lovelly brine taste to finish. Perfect example of a stout.

jercraigs (9835) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
2016-05-31. Black body, modest tan head. 3+ Aroma has light roast and dusty malt, whispers of cocoa and a light (presumably) oyster based twang. Notes of banana that I didnít notice until after Mabel points it out. Flavour is a touch odd. Sort of milk stout like tang, maybe from the oysters? Very light roast. Smooth average to thin bodied palate, soft to low carbonation. The overall impression is thinner than my preference for a stout. Decent enough just not to my own tastes. 6/3-4/6/3/12 On tap at 16 Tuns, Auckland, NZ.

Had this on draught six months ago at Hare & Billett, London, and my missus just bought me four bottles for Xmas because Iím still going on about it. Time often tricks the mind, but I was right - spectacular. Itís complex and sets off all of your mouth at different times - sweet, then salty, then malty. Looks brilliant too. Itís my birthday soon, love.
