On tap at 4 Pines Brew Pub, Manly on 12th September 2015. Sepia brown with thick yellowy-white foam. Sweet roast malt aroma. Roasty malts in-mouth with Christmas pudding and hints of cherry. A lactic touch. Creamy maltiness dominates a rather sweet finish. Full bodied with an engaging texture.

Nice looking beer, lacing completely covers the glass. All else is very subdued, light. If you want a big, meaty stout, go elsewhere.

I’m not a big stout connaisseur, but I really enjoyed this one. Nice roasty, caramely, oaky aroma with a rather sweet taste of choclate and a slight coffee aroma and a decent hoppy finish. Smooth texture and a good carbonation.

Reasonably strong pleasant aroma of caramel. Pours near black with a tan head that sadly dissipates. Smooth mouthfeel with more carbonation than I’d expected from the brewers info. Very lively flavour of roasted malts, caramel and fruits. Slightly bitter at the end. A great drop and likely to become one of my favourites.

orange_3084 (127) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2014
Deep reddish brown with good clarity if you hold it up to the light. Medium tan head with good lacing. Nice cocoa aroma with mild coffee notes. Taste is pleasantly bitter, with some pleasantly mild roasty flavour. There’s a touch of toffee sweetness, but it takes second fiddle. Finish is a bit short.
