2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
An otherwise good stout spoiled by an overwhelming foul chemical taste, possibly preservative. Will try another to see if I had a bad batch.

Being from england i was astounded to find a stout like this so far from the mother country. without a shade of doubt the best stout in Australia.

Bottle. Sweet malty aroma. Very dark with thick light tan head. Pleaseing and not overpowering malty flavour that is slightly roasty. Subtle fruity notes.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black stout, tan head with great lacing. Coffee aroma with a hint of dark rum.Thick substantial body, with mild astringency and a pleasingly dry palate. Dark and roasted malt flavours, with notes of coffee, dried fruit, licorice and whiskey. Sweetness not overpowering, and helps hide the alcohol content.

Pours a very dark black with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma was a rich a strong, creamy molasses. Flavour was malt heavy with a smoky aftertaste. Really enjoyed this beer.
