Not a bad stout, rather quaffable. However, is just a little too thin and lacks punch. Much prefer the bigger brother of this.

KeefOz (1151) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2013
Poured an opaque black with a light tan bubble rim for a head. Poor lacing. Looks good. Aroma faintly of sweet malt plus very faint roasted characters. Taste very subtle – sweet roasted malt fading to nothing. Light body (bordering on watery).

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle pours opaque engine oil deep black with tan head.. Diminishing. Perhaps glassware... Aromas of sweet chocolate toasted and fruity malt character. Med full body, complex malt, sickly sweet almost, creamy oats mouthfeel, mocha, chocolate, cocoa, bitter coffee bean finishing up creamy but dry, lingering roasted malts.

On tap at Harts Pub. Not much on the nose. Flavour mostly consisted of chocolate and coffee. An ok stout, however lacks a punch. Many better stouts out there.

best part of this beer was the appearance. didn’t smell like much at all just kinda roasty and the flavours were just savoury and dry, touch of smoke.. expected more.

Jado (673) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2013
Pours a solid black with a sudsy brown head. Scents of chocolate and some fruit on the subdued nose. Taste shows dark roast malt, coffee, some dark fruit, cinnamon and a little smoke. Slight mineral note at the end - which is kind of appropriate if you think about it. A decent Aussie stout.

mkel07 (4343) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2013
330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Perfect beer for this wet and rainy Friday afternoon. Pours midnight black, thick like oil. Deep crackling brown crest of foam. Aromas of bitter chocolate and roasted malt. Smooth and very drinkable with a long finish. Very good beer.

People... no oats used in manufacture, read the label. Now the review: Poured deep black with thick rich brown head lasted well. Low aroma of sweet malt and light coffee. Initial taste is sweet malt followed by unami which quickly vanishes into straight black coffee. Great strong and long coffee finish. Moderate-full body, thick mouthfeel with soft yet dense carbonation. Very enjoyable.
