COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Surefoot Stout is back for 2010 and is a robust, malt-driven ale combining four Australian and imported malts plus flaked barley for a rich mouthfeel. This is a sweet stout, not the traditional dry, Irish stout we all know. We use English East Kent Goldings hops to balance the burnt roasty malt characters. Overall, it’s chocolately, espresso – but rich and full, 5% alc/vol. If you’re lucky, you may even catch Stout in Randy with coffee beans – beer and coffee – what’s not to love?

Very Sheafish. Quite malty but, despite what others have said below, with burnt rather than chocolate/coffee/vegemite flavours -- which I prefer in stouts... A little soft on ABV as well.

Should no longer be surprised by beer in can. Great aroma. Burnt coffee. Bit of smoke in taste before coffee and chocolate kicks in. This isn't an in your face stout. For the middle of the road travellers. 5.0%. 385ml. 1.5std drks ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jado (649) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2015
From 330 ml can. Pours a fairly solid black with some reddish highlights and a small cream coloured head. Aromas of chocolate, raisins, plums and a little coffee. Taste starts off with some dark fruit before a roasted coffee bitterness in the mid-palate overlaid by a fresh liquorice note. Smooth chocolate and more liquorice at the end. Fairly light bodied for the style but very easy drinking.

swannycellars (41) - Swanbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2015
New cans. A little coffee and chocolate but way too thin and watery with no length. A little disappointed in this but maybe we don’t understand it’s role. Good choice for entry level stout. Perhaps produced for more of a session beer.

Slaxo (4) - - JUN 2, 2015 does not count
Can. Clear dark red. Light caramel coffee aroma, thin, dry but slightly sweet butter finish. Overall like a stout cut with soda water, never again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from Mane Liquor. Not much to say about this besides the fact it is a damn solid stout which comes in a can! Canned stout, yes please

Dervock (590) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2015
Can - pour deep dark red with a short lived tan head. Roast malt, some chocolate. Slightly sweet upfront with a roast malt dry finish. Palate is on the thin side.

StevieT (960) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2015
From a can. Big roasted aroma and lingering bitterness like a good stout should, great stuff.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2014
Pours black with a pale tan head. Roasty aromas with some caramel sweetness and a little dark fruit. Light bodied for a stout and a slightly oily texture. Smooth and creamy but not much in the way of malt complexity. Better than many and I would gladly buy again.when I see it

A good creamy stout. I’d be happy to get it again and moat likely will. Mountain Goat have done a great job.
