Just in time for winter, we have brewed a stout in the “Foreign Stout” style. With a pronounced roast barley character, this dark ale features generous palate weight and considerable length.

Pyobon (1314) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2016
(Bottle) Pours black with small short-lived beige head. Aroma is dark roast malt, notes of coffee and toast. Medium body with nice smooth fine carbonation. Full flavoured with dark roast, burnt toffee notes to the fore. There’s some sweet creamy notes up front, which steadily give way to some strong bitter notes combining hoppy bitterness and dark chocolate and coffee bitterness. Great stout.

DeliriumT (500) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2016
Pours black with no head. Aroma is quite sweet with hints of toast, biscuit and dark chocolate. Flavour is a nice mix of the aromas but is a little thin. This is not necessarily a bad thing because it makes a great quaffing stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LesArgen (317) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2016
A perfectly balanced aroma of chocolate, honey, nougat, roasted malt and coffee with a little plum thrown in for good measure. The balance slips slightly towards the sweet on tasting, but there’s a really nice aftertaste of malted milk, bitter chocolate flakes and coffee. A winner.

Jado (778) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2016
330 ml bottle. Saturated black topped off by a creamy tan head. Aromas of plum, cherry, raisin, coffee and cocoa. More fruit in the mouth before a firm black coffee bitterness. Bit of a cherry tang rounded out by some dark chocolate notes. Good stuff.

Dervock (1004) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle - pours black with a tan head. Aroma is sugary sweet chocolate and coffee. Taste is light roast with a bitter sweet choc finish. Palate is rich and smooth.

Patersoi (152) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2015
Pours black with light tan head that could be eaten with a spoon. Nive soft mouthfeel. Strong smokey charcoal flavour bring enough bitterness to keep the malt in the background. Long mocha finish that satusfies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Malrider69 (141) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2015
Pours with a thin tan head and a thick, black body. There is a pleasant, sweet aroma and the taste is complex with a mild burnt flavour that sits nicely on the palate. A pleasant stout, but it probably needs a bit more roasted malt/coffee.
