COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.
