Tommygface (3) - Brunswick East, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2012 does not count
A-Black as charcoal. Firm chocolate head that will never leave. N-Aniseed, chocolate and espresso. Licorice is a big player here. T-Bang on like vegemite toast. Oatmeal and burnt treacle. Slight peat (smokey). Lighter body that doesn’t overpower flavour. Simple presence with complex characters. This beer pours so black you cannot see through it, its smells encapsulate you, and it tastes like a potion made by willy wonka himself. The unmistakeable taste of vegemite on well cooked bread makes you do a double take. It puts you into a trance and instead of putting the glass back on the table, you take another sip discovering more characters. I want a bigger body, but I fear if this were so I would not be as intrigued as I currently am.

KeefOz (1892) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2012
Poured an opaque blacvk colour with a moderately thick beige coloured foamy head. Aroma was sweet and with subtle roasted malts. Initail taste of roasted grains but finished up having a very slight smoky flavour. Medium body. Smooth on palate. Long malty finish that develops a smoky/peaty taste. Best left to warm up a bit before drinking. Very good!

ALLOVATE (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2012
Cap popped off like a Champagne cork with the beer in hot pursuit. Another gusher; I filled two snifters with foam and it was still spewing out the neck of the bottle. Once settled, the glass a mess of tannish foam, an opaque midnight brown is the beer with a little mahogany showing in the shallows. There is a hint of rich molasses and Vegemite on the nose over heavily peaty and smoky, burnt grains, dark chocolate and a very strange waft of Stilton cheese. Quite sweet and buttery to start on the palate but this is shrowded by a bold, bitter and rough, all encompassing smokiness with licks of tobacco, ash, peat, smoked meats and lots of chocolate malt. Very long, sweet malty thick finish with lingering tarrish molasses and ash, and again a hint of musky, blue vein cheese. Meaty and firm with light carbonation and a smooth-come-oily backend. Punches a little above its weight. A delicious stout. Very drinkable. (33cL, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

On tap at Taps Beer Bar, KL. Pours quite dark, almost black with a light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt and caramel with coffee and dark chocolate. Sweet with some bitterness, well balanced. Finishes slightly bitter with hits of hops. Nice aftertaste. Very enjoyable stout! (2012-05-04)
