Got a few bubbles but I think that works to advantage. Mocha flavour on the smell. Almost licorice on foundation but the hops comes through later. Lovely malt. Coffee finish. Pleasantly light on taste of alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cam_Dynamite (86) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2015
Pours dark with a pretty stingy white head. Aroma is a nice mix of malts, chocolate and a slight pine note. Taste is very much chocolate malts finish is slightly bitter but a bit weak and watery. Solid but nothing special.

stevoj (2744) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 8, 2015
Small, but dense beige head on the pour. Subdued aroma leads into mild sweet stout territory, very creamy, more milk chocolate than dark. Very gentle dark roast grains here, nothing biting or lingering.

Bootlegger007 (92) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2015
Light floral aroma, pours black with a light brown head, good balance with a mix of coffee and chocolate with a lasting bitter aftertaste, warming, sticky medium bodied stout.

Bottle as a gift from Bram, many thanks! Dark brown, beige foam. Light sweet aroma with notes of roasted malts and porridge. Bitter finish. Light hoppy. Ok beer.

RafeAU (332) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours black, tiny head fades fast. Coffee and roasty aroma. Not sweet, not too bitter. Appropriately soft carbonation. somewhat light bodied. This is a nice standard stout. But I would always pay the extra $1 to get their superb imperial porter instead.

Black with a nice, thick beige head. Aroma chocolate, oatmeal and leather. The malts are dominated by the bitter finish in this - there’s dark chocolate and some slight coffee.flavours throughout but the strong bitter finish leaves this stout a little unbalanced. It’s a little too watery for my liking but it coats the mouth well and leaves a smooth finish.

Tap @ The Royal Albert. Deep black with cream coloured thin head. Chocolate, coffee and nut aromas. Similar flavours through the front palate but dominated by very bitter hops.
