A stout, as black as the ace of spades. Brewboys has crafted a fine stout with rich, complex, dark roasted character. With abounding coffee-like aroma, and strong cocoa bean bouquet, the aromatics are as striking as the appearance. You can’t get any blacker. Roasted malted wheat, Choc chit malt, and black malt are all called upon to intensify the blackest beer we could possibly make. Recognised as champion stout brewers, both Stephen and Simon revelled in the challenge of outdoing their own efforts at perfecting the balance of roastedness, mouthfeel, aftertaste and alcohol, in this inimitable drop. Volatiles, including vanilla bean and herbaceous fermentative profile dissipate over the glassful, leaving the drinker with an earthy back palate. This stout is best described as an extra stout, not dry or sweet. It has a hefty mouth feel, well balanced with a moderate alcohol and bitterness leaving you wanting more. Aromas and flavours re more abundant when served at warmer temperatures. In the cold of winter, drink it straight from the cupboard or cellar temperature, but if you must chill it, no lower than 10°C. Cheers.

Ungstrup (34690) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2011
Bottled. A black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of sweet and roasted malt as well as alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt and alcohol, as well as lighter notes of vegetables, leading to a dry roasted finish.

maneliquor (3484) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2012 Wasn’t expecting much at all but very happy with this brew, especially after their charger lager. Pours a thick, oily looking black with a big tan head. Burnt wood are a ncie change in the aroma with the additions of mocha and molasses. Heavy roasted malts with some bitter chocolate and roasted coffee to finish. Long lasting. Very pleasant stout indeed

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of bluebetty. Pours a very dark brown - close to black - with a warm tint of red and a creamy light brown head. The nose is roasty with a smoaky whiff. Medium body, sweet roast and licorice with a touch of tar and smoke. Ends with hardly any bitterness. Pleasant. 150311

Bottle @ Oz’n’NZ tasting 2011. [thanks bluebetty]
Light hazy chestnut black with a medium, creamy, beige head. Aroma has dark chocolate, light astringency, some coffee. Medium carbonation, good dry mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, coffee, fairly astringent, some watery notes, light smoky and roasted. Okay, but not fantastic.

ALLOVATE (2912) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2010
Tasting from Feb’ 2010.
High expectations given the hefty price tag on these brewers beers, wasn’t disappointed by this one. From the bottle into a pint, the beer cool not cold. Pours viscous, oily looking and black as night. Manages a soppy pad of tan which settles a quarter inch thick, holds and leaves a thin lace. Aroma of rich molasses, mocha latte, bovril and vegemite, some hints of cola and burnt wood in there too. Dry on the palate after a brief sweet touch of cola and vanilla upfront. Bitter chocolate and husky, heavily roasted coffee beans mid-palate and late along with cocoa butter. A little drawn out tannins make the swallow slightly astringent while smoke and ash fill the gaps. Mineral-like chalkiness resides on the tongue yet it feels oily, hard to explain that one. Good malt depth, very long lingering aftertaste. Soft in the mouth, quite full in body and smoothly frothy, foamy in carbonation. I reckon this could do with being amped up a notch as it seems worthy of Imperial Stout fame. By itself though it is a nice drop. Very slow drinking, but very enjoyable! (63cL, no date stamp, purchased August 2008, The Beer Store Morley)
