HopRedHead (355) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a short, khaki head with a thick lacing and sticky legs. Aroma contains cocoa, cherries, sweet smokiness (almost a light peatiness) and a light touch of good quality coffee. Taste is where it gets interesting, huge dark cocoa powder flavour, backed by a toasty molasses sweetness and lingering port notes with raisins and cherries. Light bitterness that was unobtrusive and let the malt do the talking. Definitely a different stout to what I’m used to, if you see this buy it.

Medium to big sweet flavor, some burnt cocoa, burnt marshmallows, dark wood, good roast, raisins and other dark fruits, mild burnt earth bitterness. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly warming to finish, lots of rich dark chocolate, some chocolate cake, modest earth, some ash, dark bread, figs and raisins. Really nice. Well balanced, deep, quite drinkable.
