Thin head, light body, black roasted barley aroma, coffee and chocolate on the palate. Too much fizz, thin body, low bitterness. Fast drinking stout? An oxymoron really.

Tasted like burnt coffee that sat around for days. Throw in some chalk and alcohol and call it a stout i guess ?

As a stout fan, I have to give this a thumbs-down. Some coffee in the taste, decent looking, but not much else. Pretty inferior. The only good quality came out when 3/4 of the way through the glass (and after 4 other beers) I swallowed wrong and got something of a whiskey taste on my palate. I think it was an accident but it was kind of nice while it was there.

This is a good stout. First had it at Outback in the big 750ml jug. After two of those everything tasted wonderful. I normally drink beer warm, but this certainly tastes better chilled. Otherwise it is quite heavily cabonated. I still enjoy this stout and I do recommend it.

This stout, like a Fosterís, comes in a mega-sized container. Now THATíS Australian! Anyway, the beer itself is less impressive. Bitter, roasty and yes, medicinal! Sort of like a coffee throat lozenge! Anyway, Iíve drunk this beer in Indianapolis after the Indy 500 for 5 years in a row, dammit, at the Outback steakhouse 3 miles up Georgetown Rd. from the track. Somehow, each time, it tastes FANTASTIC, though I know itís an illusion and the beer only tastes good because of my post-Indy 500 feel-good vibe. So, Iím going to be objective and give it the score it truly deserves as a service to others.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2004 750ml bottle: Huge medicine aftertaste that comes right after an otherwise boring stout. Yikes!

A good heavy stout. Lots of roast malt flavor, and a hint of coffee. Kind of wierd to find a stout in a 40 though.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - MAY 5, 2002
a well made basic stout, opaque colour with a beige head. nose has a trace of coffee. strong well roasted malt taste that lacks subtleties. smoothg palae despite being slighlty heavy and viscous.

very subtle aroma, kinda carmel/charcol but very week. the appearance(IMHO) is of a nice stout, however the flavor and palate donít stand out. typical stout assests, but nothing complex or interesting

Ick. Not much of a head. It doesnít really smell like anything. Tastes, well, not very good. Kind of light and itís got a weird aftertaste... almost vinegar like. Really pretty poor. I had to have some water to get rid of the taste in my mouth.
