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.

Draft at fork and Brewer. Almost black, tan head. Aroma of earthy coffee grounds. Taste is earthy cocoa and burnt espresso. Nice.

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.

Pours dark black with a thick coffee head. Nose is malty chocolate coffee. Taste is earthy, slightly bitter, plenty of coffee chocolate, some crustaceans and oyster.

Very smooth, sweet, burnt, roasted, warm finish. Too polite to be outstanding.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2016 Malty chocolate aroma in a jet black pour. A rich/full bodied beer that covers all the bases well. Probably even better than my rating would indicate...

roasted coffee beans, malt and bitter cocoa, with perhaps a little saltiness (or is the name just putting things in my mind?) finishes with a lasting charred bitterness, and while there’s a little sweet chocolate as it warms up it’s very background stuff. quite delicious really.

Bottle at Edesia, Christchurch 11/1/13
Dark ruby brown with cola, sweet berry and cocoa on the nose. Thick bod, rich and smooth with roast coffee, dark chocolate and slight barley in the long finish.

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.

Honestly I feel bereft of an experience. Buy this, please, but not because you’re edgy or cutting edge, but you’re either a total fanboy or lacking in adventure. Its really isn’t bad, I might have my expectation set high, but on my own scale of things this didn’t get to that bar.
