Dark malts provide a coffee chocolate sweetness on the front of the palate which is balanced with Goldings hop bitterness on the back. Rolled oats provide a smooth medium body. The Flavour changes down the glass. Is top fermented and bottled conditioned (yeast sediment). 2008 Gold Medal winner, best stout packaged and draught and BEST WA BEER at 2008 Perth Royal Beer Show (PRBS). Also Gold Medal and best stout at 2008 Sydney Royal Beer Competition (SRBC), and 2009 International Beer Challenge gold medal winner.

Ah the fabled nail stout. Tastes a lot more like a robust porter - lots of chocolate malt and crystal malt flavour, as well as a tarry sam smith taddy porter sort of flavour - which is good. nice licorice/spicy bitter finish, with plenty of body. overall impression is quite sweet and thick in the mouth, a chewy beer. not a bad beer at all, almost lives up to the hype!

I like stouts and Nail Stout is a top drop. Cant get it in many places though. Has a coffee chocolate taste.

Deep Black Colouring with small tan head. Chocolate Cookie Aroma with a Moca(? - Chocolate & Coffee), roasty and bitter taste. A stout well worth the drink.

Very fresh dark malts dominate a fairly standard Aussie stout. Tastes like my fits homebrewed stout where I put in heaps of chocolate malt because I could. Not bad.

Black in colour with a light brown small but lasting head. Good mix of chocolate milky coffee and some roasted flavours. Smooth chalky texture make this a good WA made stout.

i have to agree score-wise with my afghani co-rater. pretty black, light lagery texture, chocolate cake dough aroma. some rum'n'raisin flavour in there, the dark malts are quite subdued. a shame it has lost its briefly-held status as the world's best stout

Rate this stout as high as the craic back home. Appearance and aromas lacked but made up for it with rich variety of Coffee, chocoalte, caramel, and very slight burnt flavour.

Not bad. Bit sweet though. Sweet mollasses and chocolate at the start, finish is roasty and bitter, but still sweet. Some tarryness in their aswell. Not too bad. Was hoping that it would score higher given the hype ;)
