mattyhennessy (311) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2014
Pours a black-almost brown with a tan head. Aromas of sweet yet dark roasted malt and chocolate. Taste gives dark cocoa bitterness and coffee bitterness. A little smoke. High level of carbonation is a little distracting.

Not great. Thin mouth feel, not very chocolatey, over carbonated, drinks like a porter.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2011
An ok beer but to my tastes playing well above its station at the current mean score fo 3.50+. Looks great; dark chocolate brown and a thin orange head. Chocolate shines through well in the palate although the weight of the flavours really does thin out in the back palate. As good as any choc stout in Australia and not compelling.
