On tap from Portland Hotel in Melbourne CBD. I didn’t like this one as much as I do not like chocolate. Chocolate in taste and aroma. Carbonation was good.

Bif (1561) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2012
On tap at thePortland Brewhouse. Served a virtual black color with a good head that faded slowly to good lacing. Mild aroma of roasted malt, coffee and bit of dark chocolate in the background. taste of roasted malt, with some coffee and bit of dark chocolate. has a nice mild bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly full body, smooth with a creamy texture. Good drinker, nice way to end the day. Worth a try.

i think if you compare it to other irish stouts it more than stands up. better than any guinness you will get in Australia, and in my opinion has much more flavour than most modern irish stouts. it was thick and creamy but had a great nutty biscuit flavour to it. it probably doesnt have the depth to score high points with beer geeks but for a good session nitro stout it hits the spot.

davidm (1949) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Tap at James Squire, Melbourne CBD. Remarkable beer, but served too cold, so I had to wait for a while to enjoy it. The aroma is not intense (nitrogen effect?), and has liquorice, dark fruit, and coffee. Flavour is predominantly sweet, but there is bitterness at the end. Creamy in the palate, with a medium-full body. Black colour, with a head that is off-white and long-lasting.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 21, 2009
Draught at James Squire Brewhouse, Portland Hotel, Melbourne. Pours very dark brown with a small beige head. Dark roasted malt and hints of chocolate and nuts. Sweet finish with low bitterness. A little thin but it’s passable.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 15, 2009
On tap 01.15.09 at James Squire Brewhouse on King Street Wharf in Sydney. Thanks to kempicus for recommending this place. Black ruby brown, off white head. Aroma is good: roasted nuts, coffee, chocolate, caramel, molasses, smoke. Flavor is the same with a smoky sweetness with a pleasant dry, bitter, finish.

Dark brown/black in colour, Firm toffee coloured head. Sulphuric coffee flavours. Thin watery body, metalic aftertaste, thankfully very short. Tasting Tray King St brewhouse.

Not big on stouts and this one didn’t change my opinion either. Perhaps the Guiness has faulted me. I fond this lacking strength. Soft stout with no body.
