3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2013 Black, good beige head. Very little aroma - maybe some malt and alcohol. Slightly syrupy. Deep roasted malts and port sweetness. Finishes with coffee bitterness. Complex dried fruit and cocoa tastes emerge as it warms to room temperature in the glass. Good, but really lacking in aroma. [3.5] 15C. I did wonder whether that one was past its best. It seems it was only further past its best than the others Iíve tried: this is bb 10/10 and quite different. This has port and lemon, some gentle roast malt and licorice. [3.9]
Havenít seen this in Melbourne for some time, so thanks to the bloke walking out of the Prahran Danís with the couple of slabs they get in for him specially for signalling availability. Very smooth well-integrated flavours - firm roast, coffee, molasses, raisins, port. Dries out at the the finish. Welcome reminder that the macro brewers can do very solid stuff if they care to.

A very good stout. Lacking a tiny bit in the nose, this is a big heady malty choco and coffee stout with a bitter finish. Picked up a 6 pack for about 19 dollars so extra points for value. Very nice

Dutch Ratebeer meeting. Damnit, i was laughing at caesar because he forgot to write down comments for a beer, but now i see i forgot to write down a rating myself! So this oneís from memory (not my strongest point). Opaque, lasting brown head. Roasted malts, coffee and quite some sweetness. Thick mouthfeel, but not overly complex.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap. Exceptional. Aromas of apple, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, caramel, and spices. Taste has a sweet start, with long lasting bitterness. Palate is velvety, with a medium-to-full body. Black, with a frothy off-white head.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown, almost black. Looks serious. Attractive creamy coffee coloured head. Soft nose, sweet notes on the nose with a savoury edge. Long palate length that shows quite impressive complexity for an Oz macro. Starts out a fraction lean but develops nice chocolate notes with a clearly defined sliver of tangy oatmeal. Finishes strongly and just a smidgen hard. As per comments below this is a strong contender for Australiaís best macro.

Bottle - many thanks to mullet for bringing this over to Europe
Black bodied. Light brown head, which diminsihes totally. Nose of spices and malts (tofee, coffee). Moderately bitter, moderately sweet initial flavour. Lightly bitter finish. Very nice stout. I really enjoyed this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep brown with lingering beige head. Roasted malts and coffee dominate with a slight nose of chocolate and licorice also coming through. Light roasted flavour of malts and chocolate with a roasted bitter finish. A fine stout.
