330ml can into tulip. As ’Chocolate Coffee Stout’ 7%. At room temperature. Totally opaque blackness with a frothy tan-coloured head. Aroma of chocolate coffee creams, very sweet. Flat smooth mouthfeel, taste is bitter dark chocolate which carries over into the finish before a final touch of berries and coffee finishes it all off. Nice and understated. Alcohol not noticeable.

Maris (1587) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2017
From a 330ml can, labeled ’Chocolate and Coffee Stout’, ABV 7%. Pours a deep brown with a medium head. The aroma features lots of chocolate and some coffee, as one might expect given the name. Flavour wise, there’s pronounced coffee and chocolate (both sweet milk and bitter dark), with a fairly assertive roasty bitterness at the back. The palate is slightly creamy and the carbonation moderate. This comes together really well, with a lovely sweet bitter balance, and real length and intensity. Top stuff.

spotswood (2) - Soldiers point, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2017 does not count
Head looks too thin not creamy. The head is nice chocolaty brown colour but head disappears very quickly Can taste chocolate and roasted barley first sip. Roasted barley a bit unpleasant. Not well balanced. Too much residual sweetness. Little to no lacing. Carbonation too high. Its not viscous but quite thin. Dissapointing, this is a very average stout. Because of the high carbonation it has a bit of a soft drink character.

Dervock (1445) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2017
Can - 7% version. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is just like a cadburys roses coffee chocolate, rich and sweet. Taste is dry coffee roast malt up front with a bitter dry coffee finish. Bit thinner than expected

5.8% ABV version tasted on tap at the brewery today, as well as the 7% canned version (BB 31 Jan 18). Both versions display a nice deep dark brown, with a longer lasting head on the draught version. Both have a huge delicious mocha aroma, really can’t wait to sample what it promises. The taste is equally as impressive - big milk chocolate and lovely super smooth roasty coffee, firm bitterness that doesn’t impose on the choc/coffee main event. Rich, medium bodied in the draught version, full bodied in the can, really creamy texture. Probably the best coffee beer I’ve ever had and incredibly impressive that there is no loss of flavour between the draught and canned versions tasted. Magnificent.

170317. I had a can of this beer at Wandering Cooks while I was waiting for an afternoon thunderstorm to pass. Everything about this beer is great - from the deep black colour to the smooth silky texture in the mouth and everything in between. Loaded with coffee and chocolate aromas and there is that bitter dark chocolate hit in the finish. A beer that ticks all of the boxes.

3.4
Davros (3290) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2016
Pours black with a large head. Nose shows coffee, some soft dark chocolate and roasted malt. Flavours include bitter/dry roast, some chocolate and subtle coffee with an assertive roasty bitterness.

hawthorne00 (4115) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2015
Black with a light tan head that gradually settles to 1/2 an inch and then sticks around. Aroma of fine dark chocolate and medium roasted coffee. 7+ Silky texture, lowish carbonation. Intense chocolate, but not very sweet at all. There are "high" coffee flavours and boysenberries too. A little pepper and grass at the end and the coffee comes to the fore. Bitterness creeps up there quite a bit too. The chocolate (particularly) and coffee are very fine but maybe are too much of the show. Classy drop.
