3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
As black as the ace of spades, with a creamy tan head. Strong burnt aroma, lots of coffee and dark chocolate, a bit of roasted nuts and vegemite. Nice full body, quite balanced but perhaps a little on the roasty side. Flavours of coffee and burnt toast, long burnt finish. Maybe they should have eased off on the roast malt, but at least it’s interesting. Good stuff

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, overactive head. Light fudgey chocolate with some coffee accents lending roast. Straightforward roast and light chocolate, with some softer notes that aren’t quite vanilla. Ok stout, a bit too yeasty/active and the effect on the body isn’t positive.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the trustee. Jet black oily pour with little to no head. Nice lacing. Burnt malts and molasses dominate the aromas. Some bitter dark chocolate and roasted malts combine nicely in the taste. Hint of sweetness in there as well. Smooth on the palate. Very easy drinking stout. Good stuff

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A-- Poured dark, near black cola color and settled black. No light penetrating this at all. Short lived dark leather color head. Quickly dies off and leaves no lacing at all. Same when swirled. Best height on head is one and half fingers.
S-- Coffee, chocolate and and earthy pungent smell that has a bit of fresh cut grass in this. Some stewed strawberries or possibly rhubarb with the smell.
T-- Coffee acidity sourness and chocolate, bakers chocolate that is. Big bite of the coffee acidity to start with this. Also quite earthy in the taste.
M-- Acidity slows down in the mouth and smooths out to just coffee and chocolate. Very smooth and finishes with a good amount of sweet coffee acidity to finish. Medium body and higher medium feel.
O-- True to style and does quite well at it. Feels a lot bigger than the ABV leads on. Quality beer that for the ABV will age well and get more complex with age. On par with some of the better Foreign Exports that are out there. One of the better beers made in Australia that flys under the radar.

Bottle thanks to Maneliquor. Pours jet black with a dense dark tan coloured head. Hangs around for a while before slowly falling away to nothing. Good aromas of milk chocolate and expresso coffeee. Really nice nose. Flavours show heaps of roasted grain bitterness and espresso coffee. Fullish mouthfeel
