500ml bottle. An opaque black-centred beer with dark brown edging and a one-finger, somewhat lasting creamy tan head. Liquorice, coffee, roasted malts, walnut and a touch of dried fruits. Light to medium body, quite firm but I would’ve preferred a degree of softness and plumpness in the mid-palate to round off the bitterness. Medium carbonation, medium intensity ashy, roasty finish with fair length.

coffee and nuts dominate the flavour here, but it finishes rather watery. very thin overall for a stout...close to a schwarzbier. okay.

A beautifully balanced stout with malt & dark truffle tones. There is a full flavour & light finish that makes this easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cantabrian (762) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 22, 2012
This is a reasonably good stout. Pours brown, just dark brown and not black, but rather formidable, with a thin light cream-coloured head. The first whiff is a lovely chocolate with raspberry liqueur, just as it breaks under our bite. The nose gets more ordinary as it warms, heading towards the plain roasted crust and esters, which are rather unconcealed throughout the whole ride. Roasted malt taste, with a bit of chocolate and a feeble bitterness, both overwhelmed by the alcohol. It is a thin stout and the alcohol is on your palate. Not much of a discernible finish. No matter how much criticiseable, I’d take that cart with the Clydesdales over any ordinary lager.

Draft. A dark brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has strong notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt, leading to a dry and bitter finish.

floydian1 (825) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 26, 2010
330ml bottle. Deep brown body with a medium tan head. Coffee and dark chocolate on the nose. Taste is bittersweet with coffee flavours dominating. Medium-light bodied for the style with a slick mouthfeel. Pleasant bitter finish.

Black with a tannish head, creamy. Aroma of coffee and roasted elements. Taste exactly the same. A little lighter then most. Quite nice though.

hawthorne00 (2252) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2010
Bottle. Black with a light tan head that’s big in a pint glass then fades but never disappears. Aroma has nuts, chocolate, grass and a little smoke. Taste has discreet roasted barley, chocolate. Slight coffee astringency. Balanced and mouthfilling. Dry roasted finish is rather short. Not a special beer, but another NZ beer that does everyday really well.
