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.

(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a dark brown – almost opaque – with a tint of red and a dense, light brown head. Distinct burned malt aroma with a whiff of port. Medium body with solid burned malt accents, a little vanilla and perhaps a wee saline touch. Dry malt bitter finish. Excellent. 130608

Bottle shared by Casper @ De Bierbrigadier Eindhoven. Thanks for sharing Casper! Opaque very dark brown to black color, medium to full sized beige head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, some roast, lightly earthy, liquorice. Taste malts, dark malts, earthy, liquorice again and a slight touch of hops. Decent body, a bit fizzy carbonation.

jercraigs (9722) - 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 didn’t 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.

DuffMan (9499) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 3, 2009
Bottle. An impressive pour: oily and very dark, with a dense brown head. Incredibly roasty aroma, chocolate, beef broth, something vaguely fruity, and a hint of earthy/leafiness that was a bit hash-like. Heavy dense mouthfeel. Loads of flavour (they didn’t scrimp on the malts here!), burnt malts, figgy fruit, marmite, with a briny bitter end. Absolutely excellent.
