Pours a dark colour with a tan head. Smell of roasted malt and a nice coffee taste.

Bottle. Black with an average sized dark brown head. Aroma-taste: roasted grain, chocolate, coffee with a bitter roast finish. Light to medium bodied and modest carbonation. A reasonable example of the style.

ComradeK (922) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2011
330ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a thick tan head, which lasts reasonably well, but does not leave much lacing. The nose is surprisingly fruity for a stout, with a similar range of berry notes to their Red Ale. This blueberry and blackberry mix is supported by a touch of dark, roasty malt. An almost Belgian fruitiness starts it off, before mild peppery hops come into the mix. A slightly too-light body has abundant blueberry notes, which lead into a satisfying finish of mild coffee and roasty malt. This is a decent enough stout, although the berry notes do sit at odds with the style, and it could do with a bit more body.

GT2 (7884) - Carlsbad, California, USA - NOV 17, 2010
330mL. Terrible artwork. Looks like non-beer. Pour is clear, deep ruby looking faux black in the glass. Medium to thin, fizzy, grayish tan head. Okay retention and lace. Aroma is smokey, black oilve tapenade, slight roasted malt, buttery mocha. Taste is suddy, bland, slight coffee, watery, metallic, soapy dish water.

Stouts can be quite generic and this is one of those. Nothing wrong but nothing special either.

RyansRatings (43) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2010
Pours black with thin tan foam, that doesn’t hang around too long. It’s soft, supple and very sweet. Not my kind of thing. At all.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2010
Pours black with a small lasting head. Nose shows lots of chocolate, quite creamy. Pretty nice! Fair bit of roasted malt too. Some story with the flavours but more centred towards the roasted malt. Too much carbonation. Pretty simple but still enjoyable.
