A dry Irish style stout, presenting almost black, bearing a generous tan head. The aroma profile is of coffee, chocolate and caramel malts. These are matched on the pallet with a full bodied, smooth finish and a balancing bitterness. Currently being tested to become the first certified ‘space beer’ in the world!

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2013
Chocolate and light hops for the aroma, heavy dark brown appearance with a mild creamy head. Tastes of hops upfront, but dark burnt malt on the end with a bit of chocolate and a nice dry finish. Overall a very nice drinking dry stout, nothing amazing but still great.

I tried this over a year ago, but never rated. I remember little, except that it was o ne of "the good ones", with plenty of chocolate and a dry finish...Obviously must re-rate it one day, but not this time.

Pretty average beer, lacks any serious flavour, Not bad but plenty of better stouts out there!

Jado (748) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with some red highlights at the edges. Thinning tan head with moderate carbonation. Aromas of coffee, aniseed and dark chocolate come through. The taste is rather lighter than the nose suggests. It shows some dark fruits at the front end before a black coffee bitterness comes through in the mid-palate. Quite light-bodied with a lingering dark chocolate aftertaste. Good.

WilleLW (236) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2013
Black colour with a crispy, dark head. Strong aroma of roasted malt and coffee with a note of hops and pine. Taste of roasted malt, dark chocolate and with a nice coffee bitterness that stays around in the aftertaste. Also a slight dry taste with hops.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with no head and thin lacing. Fairly light nose, dark malt with a touch of leather and soy. Taste is fairly light too, roasty cocoa and caramel. Body is a touch watery for a stout. Still a solid effort from another Australian brewery.

Tap at the sail. Jet black pour. Roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is much the same. Space beer apparently. Eh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Probably the best beer from 4 pines. A solid and quaffable dry stout, nothing in it to blow you away though.
