3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Drink Monger. Pours a lovely black colour with a ruby tinge. An initially thick, tan head dies away fairly quickly to lacing. Nutri-grain malt aroma with yeast, caramel and chocolate with a feint floral hop character. Definite Vegemite flavour which is interesting with coffee, chocolate and roasted malt characters also. Moderate carbonation and a slick mouth-feel despite a little CO2 prickle. OK.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Black with a small head. Some discrete chocolate flavours but otherwise there wasnít much flavour. A bit, in fact a lot dissapointing. This brewery is capable of better.

Iím just not sure if I like this. There is a full flavour, but itís not a stout flavour I recognise. Itís fruit. Then itís meaty steak. Then there is a metallic edge. Finishes neither sweet nor dry.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml Bottle. Aroma is burnt chocolate and liquoric with a slight hint of ash and fruits. Appearance is black with a light tan head that disappears VERY fast for a stout. Taste is very very watery and that detracts from the dark fruits. This is not one Iíll be having again.
