Awesome bouquet. Pours black with nice tan head. A touch thin though. Good flavour balance with a sweet hint up front quickly pulled back into line by the burnt charcoal bitter finish. Long chocolate and coffee finsh and more bouquet. Nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is not pretending to be anything. It’s just a really good drinking stout at what I believe is a great price. I’m sitting in a pub having dinner and it’s the cheapest beer on the list.....and that list include some tasteless concoctions from the same producer. We’ll done

Mild fruity aroma. Pours a lovely near black colour with a tan head that fades. Thinner on the palette than some stouts but pleasant none the less. Flavour is roasted malt, fruits and spices. Not my favourite stout but still a pleasure to drink.

Muggus69 (1685) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2013
375mL bottle. Reduced to Clear at local Woolworths Liquor Deep near-black body, thin film of tan foam sticks around. Moderate intensity aroma; cocoa, molasses, some woody hop and bready yeast. High carbonation, bit thin and watery for strength and style, dries out quite quickly. More cocoa on the body, bit of liquorice, flavour drops away to reveal a bit of yeasty "CUB" twang that lingers with a moderate bitterness. Disappointing; certainly not on par with other macrobrewed Aussie stouts.

bit thin but for under $4 it’s good! molasses, mocha, with good texture and weight.

That’s a classic, taken in Melbourne. Dark cola colour, with a thin tan head, it has little aroma to be noticed, but a lovely flavour of chocolates, prunes and coffee. I’d be happier with less coffee. A bit woody, it’s as good as a Coopers, although more fruity. Medium bodied and with little bitterness, this stout has an almost creamy texture that could put it in the sweet stout category. Although produced by Carlton, this is a nice gem of the South.
