Iíve tried a lot of beers over the years, and this has become one of my favorites, and definately my favorite, most drinkable stout. I like Guiness, but I like this even better. It is very well balanced; I just canít get me enough; hand me another!

Itís been around in Australia forever and thankfuly itís still easily available. It has stood the test of time because itís simply a great stout. Not as sweet at some stouts, itís more molases than coffe or chocolatey.

Love that big bottle but the label imparts damned little information, mostly the usual health warning. It poured a frothy tan head, which produced a small amount of nice short-term lacing. The colour is just bloody dark, impervious to light. Aroma is roasted/toasted/burnt malts, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is all that the aroma promises, and that is simply delicious. Mouthfeel is typically "stouty", with a clean after. Far and away the best Oz beer Iíve ever had.

Bottle 375ml. Very solid stout, a great surprise. Aromas chocolate and caramel. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, with a medium-to-full body. Black, with a thin head.

Iíve had at least one of these a week for the last 20 years - over 1000 total! (Does anyone remember when it was called Tooth Sheaf?) The ONLY beer I carry to the top of mountains when I go hiking. Coffee, chocolate, toast, and just a pinch of salt to set it apart. Like liquid bread, it sticks to your ribs. If you find yourself marooned on a South Pacific island, this is the beer youíll want a case of to wash up on the shore!

Too much coffee in the aroma for me. Other than that, I really enjoyed this. A great opaque color. Thick and quite roasty. A nice graininess in the finish.

This is probably my new go-to stout. It has a non-overwhelming complexity and a remarkable smoothness. The biggest flavor note I got was a deep coffee, like properly extracted espresso. Plus its very affordable, at my store they are cheaper than the Guinness bottles of the same size.

Great cheap stout, coffee colored head, goes away quickly. Very carbonated, molasses and coffee flavors. Black as night.
