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.

Holmen1 (5245) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2015
Flaske fra Sainsburys, delt med Steven hjemme hos ham: pours like engine oil. Nydelig aroma og smak av kaffe, solbr, sigaraske og mrk kvalitetssjokolade. Supersmooth munnflelse med et hint av salt mot slutten. Eksemplarisk, trr slutt med masser av smak og ettersmak. S godt at jeg nesten glemte nevne utseendet: brunsvart med tett beige skum. Oh, this is the business!

Bottle, Ale House, Chelmsford Deep chocolate colour. Nice lacing. Really classic English notes. I found it a bit too dry and a bit too thin. The oysters and sea water notes combined with the porter well. Good for the style.

Benzai (14680) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2015
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.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołw, POLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle, kindly provided by Cantabrian. Chocolate liqueur, vanilla, pumpernikel bread and a salty note even in the aroma. Top quality dark chocolate flavour, creamy mouthfeel and a finish reminiscent of subtly bitter, light salted coffee. Absolutely delicious!

tombutlin (261) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 30, 2015
Im really going off stout. This one tries too much and ends up like a mardi gras float at the farmers field day. Caramel and chocolate. Confused.

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.
