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.

DreadedChippy (8) - - MAY 21, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2016 Could be a bit blacker. Appears very dark brown. Nice chocolate hints and roast on the nose although could have a lot more. Could also have more body. A bit too thin. However a well rounded average stout

Poured black with a slight brown tinge in the light. A little thin in the mouthfeel and not enough roast flavours for me but a reasonable stout.

A good stout, a bit on the thin side though. A good session beer on a cool Melbourne winter’s night nonetheless.

Black pour from 12oz can in Hong Kong. White head. Cigarette and cocoa aroma. Taste is smoky and earthy. Not bad

jmgreenuk (7837) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 23, 2015
Can at Taps Beer Bar Changkat, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin tan head and a little broken lace. The aroma is roasty malt, light smoke. The flavour is moderate smoked malt, liqourice with a smooth, slightly watery light chocolate, light dry coffee palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Beertopia 2015. Coffee, bitter roast malt, but on the watery side in body and taste.

Muggus69 (2142) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2015
375mL can from Slowbeer. BB 07/05/16 Spot on stout - jet black, dense head, solid tan head. Plenty of roasty goodness on the nose; toasted nuts, blackened bread, baked cookies, dark choc, touch of coffee. Full bodied, sort of chewy texture. Dark chocolate sweetness upfront - dark toffee, roast nuts, dark toast, mild roast coffee, bit of earthy hop in the mix. Moderately bitter, smooth finish. Class act - lovely & smooth.

TedE (1015) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2015
375ml can into pint glass. Sweet acidic nose. Dark ruby red beer with foamy tan head. Fizzy mouthfeel, medium body. Finish is chocolate and coffee, quite dry. Nice if unexceptional stout.

bgb1991 (131) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2015
Completely against the general consensus, I love this stout. Dark chocolate is big on the nose, roast peanuts, and vanilla as well. Awesome ruby hue black body with a sandy white head. A little thin but so smooth. A very easy going full flavoured stout, great balance.
