bottled, one of my first 2 or 3 beers tasted at about age 15 (with sunday roast at the dinner table) and a few times since. the body couldn’t be much blacker nor the head much beiger; salty aroma of vegemite and burnt toast; minimal sweetness, hints of rusty gutters and buttermilk; seems unremarkable these days

375ml bottle. Pours a thick idnight black colour with a coffee coloured creamy head. Looks thick and robust in the glass with roasted malt aromas pouring forth. Burnt malt flavour leaves a dry bitterness on the tongue that is quite pleasant. Well balanced with lots of muscle.

Pretty decent for an every day stout. Flavour is backed by lots of roasted malts. Very simple brew

hawthorne00 (2397) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 375ml bottle. Some roasty aromas, vanilla, coffee and some grass. Taste backs up the aroma. Has some weight. Quite nice and well balanced. Still better than the 250 Anniversary stout I tried the other day. Much better than the nitro stuff. [3.2]

Plain but solid. Very drying finish.

better than draught guinness. Biger and roastier but with a tinner palate. Decent, but I prefer the coopers extra stout for about the same price.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Bottle 375ml. Good and aggressive. Aromas of apple, roasted malt, and coffee. Flavour has long-lasting bitterness, and it’s also a bit sour. Oily palate and medium body. Black colour, with a frothy off-white head that doesn’t last all the way.

Davros (1893) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2010
Pours black with a large, persistent, rocky, light-tan head. Nose shows a fair bit of chocolaty roasted malt along with a load of sweet caramel and some light fruity hops. Flavours are quite potent, with loads of roasted barley becoming almost burnt (too much black patent?). Later on some burnt caramel shows, with a long roasty bitterness finishing it up. Body is too watery for such a powerful brew.

Westmeister (1723) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Draft. Perfect looking brew with a dark black/brown body and a thick milkshake like head. The lacing is more like cake batter than anything. The smell is somewhat sweet roasted malts and a hint of minerals. The taste is very thin, almost lager like with weak roasted malts, but a serious mineral component that adds both bitterness and sweetness. Really not what I am used to having in the States. Still it is hard to find anything dark in Australia, so I was happy to try this.

worldbeertaste (1618) - AUSTRIA - MAY 25, 2012
Dark brown almost black with a frothy lasting thick tan nice lacy head. Nice roasty nut smell of malt with caramel, salt, . Medium frothy smooth body with soft carbonation. Sweet suger caramel start with a bitter dry roast finish. Not too bitter on the finish. Very enjoyable a cracking Stout.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 14, 2010
Bottle. Australian version, 6.0%ABV. Pours dark brown with a lasting brown head. Light roasted malt and brown sugar aroma nut very subtle. The flavour is roasted malt, brown sugar and a hint of smoke. Medium bodied and soft carbonation is present. Low bitterness in the finish. As echoed by many this is a lot better than the regular draught.
