BB 20/08/15. Poured an opaque black colour with a big two-finger light tan quite dense foamy head that retained extremely well and laced OK. Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste initially shows a bit of sweetness and this followed by roasted and burnt flavours finishing with a moderate bitterness. Medium body, a bit thinner than I like in a stout. A bit dry but easy to drink with a low bitterness.

A bit like a fast ball delivery, this. The front and middle are gone in a silky flash and *bang!* the finish crashes in with roasted and burnt bitterness, chalky coffee, vanilla, creamy oats and a very slight sour green fruit. The video referee is called in allowing you to reconstruct the front and middle in slo-mo. Very quaffable. Good level of bitterness. Quite boring at first, but quite endearing after the first 1/3 of a pint.

Pours near black with a fluffy tan head. Mollassas and coffee aromas. Chocolate roast and fruity yeast flavour, with a creamy finish. Pretty ordinary stout.

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours darn brown with a creamy head that slowly disappears. Body is moderate and oily with low carbonation. Aroma is fairly mild and taste is coffee, molasses and a bit of tobacco smoke. Easy drinking but nothing exceptional

Davros (2448) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2014
Pours black with a light tan head. Nose shows dry roasted malt, cocoa and oatmeal. Very roasty flavours, quite dry. More oatmeal but no really coffee or chocolate, just dry roast. Turns out quite moreish though. Lovely creamy carbonation and body.
