UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 I have always had a deep seated suspicion of oysters. Therefore when one of my customers ordered a bottle and offered me a chance to have a sip, I thought I was going to be struck down with some sort of nasty intestinal affliction.
What happened was a lovely briny enveloping stout that charmed its way into my affections. Since tasting I have stocked and recommended to many punters. I am led to believe that there are Oyster Stouts that are fined with oysetr shells, ones that are designed to be consumed with oysters and ones that are brewed with oysetrs in them (like this one). If you are new to the style, and if this is anything to go by, graps it with both hands and indulge.
If seven maids, with seven mops swept for half a year they’d never pass up a chance for another 3 Boy’s Oyster Stout.

Low condition keg served by beer engine through a sparkler at the Malthouse Wgtn.
Aroma features Milk chocolate, and a touch of bitter spicy coffee. On the palate there is more chocolate, a touch of sour milk, and a oily saline character, sweet nutty malt and a hint of frying vegetable oil ends on a mild roast note. Fantastic beer, the serving method suggests how fantastic this would be cask conditioned.

I’ve had this one in New Zealand on my honeymoon.
Nice black stout. Roasted flavor, a bit too sal ammoniac in the taste though. Must be the oysters.

Bottle (courtesy of JT), black with a filmy beige head. Beautiful roasted and bitter malt aroma with just a touch of sweetness. A little syrupy, with very strong roasted malt and smoky flavour. The finish becomes more dry with some astringency. Quite delicious.

Found it to be lightweight. Tasted next to Brew Moon stout, and three Boys was found wanting. Body seems to be missing. Nice packaging though.

Batch 1016 from Halswell New World. Inky black, nice coffee head. Roasty, woody almost palmisan cheese nose. Guess that’s the oysters. Reasonable round mouthfeel if not big on body. Sweetish with a stonefruit, woody finish. Reasonable

Seaweed aroma with chocolate and malt. It had a good thick head but wasn’t too sweet. Not sure about the magical properties of the oysters though.
