3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Visual: "Winner of the Australian International Beer Award 2011 Champion Stout". Pours super dark brown with barely any head, very thin ringed retention, some activity on the surface.
Nose: Very deep roasted coffee and liquid chocolate. (10)-aromatic strength.
Attack: deep richness, syrupy mouthfeel
Mid-palate: (6)-sweetness, (MAIN) mocha, vanilla, roasted coffee, malts, cola
Finish: light alcohol, malty-roasted bitter finish.
Summary: A very nice balance of bittersweet flavours. Decent body but more creaminess and a bit thicker mouthfeel would’ve made this super awesome. (Note: numbers above are on a 10-point weak-strong scale)

500ml brown bottle. Black pour, low sitting creamy tan head. Nose has rich cocoa/chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Taste has vanilla, coffee grounds, chocolate. Finish has roast, and lots of lingering cocoa and bitter coffee. Body is light and carbonation mild. Overall, a good beer, but would have liked a bit more mouthfeel. Coffee and cocoa notes were nice though.
