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.

Pitch black poor. Roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Flavour is much the same just a slight burntness. Nice bitterness to this stout. No oyster or weirded and wonderful flavours. Little disappointed by that but the stout was pretty nice regardless.

Black pour with slight head. This stout has a bitter, crisp flavor with hints of biscuit. All right, but not my go to NZ stout.

k0mpsa (1583) - Järvenpää, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from ballantynes, christchurch. Black color, on of the biggest brown heads ever seen. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, licorice. High co2, roasty, coffee, balanced. Nice stout, but the head is getting over the glass when poured.

jc1762 (151) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 19, 2015
Tap at Craft Beer Rising (London, 19 February 2015) Black with thin coffee brown rims and a head of coffee brown foam. The nose shows a briny oyster background with notes of dark chocolate and latte. The palate shows a slight tartness. Medium bodied & carbonation. Very smooth with flavors of dark chocolate and espresso and once again, the briny oyster constantly in the background. These flavors blend together harmoniously. Very clean espresso finish. All flavors are balanced, clean, and clear.

Chocolate, toast and a pleasant sweetness at the back end. Couldn’t pick up briny-ness but enjoyable drop anyway

jinroh (652) - ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2014
Pours dark brown with massive beige head. Head reduces fast but some foam still remains. Taste has some velvety fruitiness, coffee, bit oily texture. Strong coffee malts, bitter chocolate. Nice balance with salty sea characteristics, bit sour feel in the aftertaste. Nice sturdy stout.

Pitch black in the glass, with head retained well, (caramel colour). Chocolate and bread, with a roasted coffee nose. Light and smooth, almost nutty, flavour comes out now. Long Finish. Delightful, 500ml bottle.

bottle, bar in queenstown NZ. Tried this over the weekend and really surprised me as I ordered an IPA but got served this by mistake! Nose and appearance pretty standard stout, rich full. taste and palate were excellent the beer got better the more I drank it, it was really well balanced but whilst being a strong stout with a lot of roasted coffee and chocolate notes with a touch of brinyness!
