On tap at Capital Golf Club. First I had ever heard of it. Tasted like a poor imitation of dark ale. Tooheys Old is 10 times better than this stuff.

A poor version of old, leave a bitter taste in your throat like they have tried to burn the something sweet but have pushed it to far.

Mild burnt caramel aroma and coffee flavours. Not much body but pretty smooth, should be stronger. An OK attempt.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Among the worst "stouts" ever. Watery brown appearance, with the smell (not "aroma") of a glass of milk with Nesquick left over in the fridge for a few days already. Water, nuts and mud. Totally forgetable. Many adjectives suitable, but not "stout".

Overly foamy when poured, however minimal head retention. Strong coffee tastes, like a stout although it was listed as a dark ale. Very light bodied however. Surprisingly refreshing taste, especially when compared to a regular Carlton Draught. Definitely a step in the right direction for this brewery

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured black with a coppery red tint. Virtually no head, only a few white bubbles. Spotty lace. Moderate carbonation. Aroma-less. Tasted bland. Medium to light body with a watery mouthfeel. Easy to drink but not flavoursome - more like a dark lager than an ale - and it is certainly not a stout or porter! Disappointing as was expecting more from an ale.

375ml bottle. Pours dark mahongany. Light carbonation with very quickly dissipating head. Fair aroma, toasty, toffee. Sweet burnt caramel but the flavor fades quickly and ends up watery.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Where is the body? Smell and look are reasonablly in line with a porter, dark roasted malts and such. The taste is even not bad with caramel and dark roasted malts, but it holds up for about .5 seconds. Super watery texture that fades quickly. Only dark beer that I could find while in Australia and I will not be going back to this one.
