3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle into pint glass. Chocolatey boozy nose. Black beer with no light penetration, tan head. Quite a lot of carbonation. Light bodied, first taste is spritzy and bitter then milk chocolate. Finish is lingering dark chocolate/cocoa. Really nice. Australia has some great stouts but no-one seems to drink them.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer hits and misses in equal measure. It smells and tastes lovely with toffee and dark chocolate being most prominent and a pleasant bitterness with a little coffee flavour at the end. It pours like cola, a lovely near black colour with a dark tan head that fades almost instantly. It had way too much carbonation however and it feels like lager in the mouth.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
This is the first time to try this beer. It has barnyard aroma, black appearance, light bitter taste, and sticky texture. Overall, this beer is not for me.........

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, light brown sugar in the aroma. Flavor is the same with a bit of bourbon. A bit bittersweet. While it wasn’t bad, it wasn’t all that good, either. Simple is it’s best quality.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle. Poured with a thick and creamy thus lacing and lasting dark tan to light brown head atop a deep but clear dark brown, almost black, body. Rich dark chocolate, espresso and roasted malt characters across both aroma and to taste with a slight caramel and milk chocolate sweetness. Some dark, dried fruit notes in the mid-palate. Medium in body with soft to medium carbonation and a lengthy bitter malt finish. A competent, well-brewed and full-flavoured stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice black, typical stout aroma’s of coffee, roasted malts and a roasty nuttiness.
Taste. Mainly espresso coffee, and a slight dark chocolate flavour accompanied with a pleasant bitterness throughout.
Overall. This beer just rates slightly above the crowd and is good for the price.
