Bottle (750ml). You have to love this stuff at, 7.4%, $4.50 - $5.00 per 750ml and jam packed with stouty flavors, it is the best beer to buy in Australia money for value wise. Poured black with a dark brown, dense frothy head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of roasted malts, dark chocolate, molasses, some dates, coffee and some licorice in the back. Flavor was of roasted malts, licorice, molasses, some coffee and nuts and a smoky, mildly warming finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation, with a syrupy texture, creamy mouthfeel and a long finish.

#16 [Blind tasting session @ Papsoe 30-11-2007] Average creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Good lacework. Dark mahogany color. Dried fruit, toasted malt. Over the palate heavy notes of coffee, bitter chocolate and liquorish. Hint of tar. Medium to full bodied with a light dry texture and a lively carbonation. Moderated mix of bitter and sweet flavor. Dry bitter English liquorish that lingers in the mouth and covers it.

Black color; creamy head. Mild aroma, with some roasted malt and dark chocolate. Milky roasted malt flavor, but the sourness from the roasted malt is disturbing. Wrong.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of highlandlad. Pours a dark brown - almost black - with a vague, reddish hue and a creamy, light brown head. Vinous aroma of sweet, hard roasted malt. Medium body, rather sweet hard roasted malts with accents of dried fruit and a little port. Subdued bitterness with a discreet, ashy edge. Somehow I have a feeling that this is bottom fermented, but I may be wrong. Anyways, it’s an excellent Stout. 301107

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. One of those stouts that starts off with the sort of kick that you could sometimes do without, but once you’re acclimatized, the bottle’s almost done and you’ve been happily inhabiting the land of roasted coffee licorice malted nuttiness.
