#250 Three Boys – Porter

Name: Porter
Brewery: Three Boys (Chch, NZ)
Style: Porter
ABV: 5.2%
Source: Huhu Cafe (Waitomo, NZ)

I’m still very behind on posts and frankly a little drunk so will make this a quick’un…

I went to Waitomo last week, and as most places I go to for work are devoid of craft beer (Kapiti Island for example) I decided this would be the day I finally blogged Waikato Draft.

But lo! It turned out that Waitomo has an excellent restaurant – the Huhu Cafe (no grubs on the menu sadly) whose beer menu included Yeastie Boys, 8 Wired, and 3 Boys.

So while I’m sure everyone would probably have preferred I sucked it up and drank Waikato Draft, I’m sorry. I’ll get to it eventually I promise, but I was in the mood for something I could taste.

This was a pleasant, comforting porter – tasting predominantly of burnt roasty malt, coffee, berries and chocolate. It’s was little on the light side – but this wasn’t a bad thing – and together with the dry finish made it the perfectly counterpart to my slow-cooked duck. (Bit posh for a work trip I know, but I do like to enjoy myself).

Insert your own witty sign-off here. I’m going to bed!

  1. I just made the mistake of buying a six pack of the newly released Boundary Road Chocolate Mousse Porter. I can honestly say it’s one of the worst beers I have every drunk. I’ve got 5 left. Any ideas?? haha

    • Ha ha, I’m not surprised. You could send one to me so that I can review it, and give the rest to your mortal enemies? 😉

      • Sure, I can send you one if you really want. Are you in Auckland somewhere?

      • Just kidding about sending one – it’s not worth the postage!

      • haha. I thought you might be kidding. I’ve got an oil stain on the driveway, which it might be good at removing. Seriously though great work with the blog. Always look forward to seeing your next review. Cheers
