Nothing special. I'm new to the style so maybe try again once I get more stouts under my belt.

Steelhead Extra Stout 6.5%
Pouring an inky black with a ruddy tan head in my tumbler that vanished in a blink. The nose is big dark bitter chocolate, berries, savoury umami, roasty & approachable. The flavor is chocolate, cacao, 70% bitter chocolate, berry & roastiness. Nice.

Very good and not so dry. But neither coffee alike nor sweet. It was a fine porter to enjoy there.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
At cellar temperature and into a snifter. Cola brown and deepest ruby in the shallows with a shimmering radiance when held to the lights. Tight, tan fold holds but is short and manages only a thin lace. A lot of Vegemite and Marmite on the nose, very yeasty with a lot of umami playing into character as its enticingly sweet but doused in meaty notes. Light aniseed, but musters well and adds depth. Beautifully rich on the tongue. Well rounded, silky smooth and lengthy. So much chocolate in all its guises. Moderate, bitter sweet chocolate swallow is flawless and tannin free. Creamy, oh so moorish. Earthy, mocha with an ensuing nuttiness. This is just good drinking stout. Loved every sip! (12fl.Oz, no date stamp, Int’l Beer Shop, Leederville)

12 ounce bottle poired into a pint glass. The beer is a dark brown to black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has strong anise character and dark chocolate. Mostly a bitter stout, but there is a subtle sweetness lingering in the background. Medium body and medium carbonation.
