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.

Sampled from a 500mL bottle. Almost black, with a decent tan head. This beer has moderate chocolate and burnt malt aroma. It tastes similar also, with a long finish. The burnt malts slightly dominate the chocolate. Slightly one dimensional for my liking, and perhaps a bit thin for a stout. Typical light stout carbonation. This beer seems to get good reviews, so I might revisit at a later date. But for now, it seemed just average to me.

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

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!

The head is robust, the body black. It smells a bit roasty, stony, malty. The taste is roasty, bit oyster, natural, stoney. The aftertaste is oyster, bitter, roasty. Ok but I expected more.
