COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Patersoi (133) - 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 (121) - 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.

Bottle from Plonk. Deep, oily black, brown head, lots of lacing, quite dry, roasty bitterness, espresso coffee, Xmas pudding, full body, heavy texture. Very good.

M_Sack (582) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2013
Deep black with a mocha coloured head that is maintained from pour to finish. Delicious yet subtle aromas of milk chocolate and roasted malt. Flavours of roasted barley, chocolate and coffee. Theres a touch of sweetness in the mid palate which leads to typical foreign stout dryness and a distinct hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is a letdown however with a watery rather than a stouty, stomach filling lusciousness.

Bif (1923) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Pours a dark brown, almost black color with a nice frothy tan head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate dark fruit and bit of nut in the background. Taste continues with roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate with some dark fruit in the background. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly full body, smooth and creamy. Nicely balanced. Very enjoyable stout. Worth checking out.
