Black & tan -spot on
Dark chocolate, charry toasty malts, licorice on the nose.
Very full for its strength, creamy body.
Solid palate - stacks of roasty nutty malts, touch of citrusy hop character there too. Really good! Oakes (19426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2016
Draught at the brewery. Medium brown. A touch thin, but it’s toasty and has an accent of chocolate. Straightforward stout, but fairly light. Davros (3338) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2015
Pours black with a quickly fading head.
Nos shows coffee, bready malt, toast, nutty notes and a soft burnt character.
Flavours include more coffee, balanced roast and lightly burnt toast.
Body feels a little watery.
Very easy-drinking, more of a porter/brown ale. crozdog (19) - Ascot Vale, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2014
The head did not last long. That’s probably the only fault I could find with this stout. Lots of oatmeal coming through. Very enjoyable. Would happily drink again.

Draught at Forrest Brewing Company, Forrest, on August 2, 2013.hawthorne00 (4196) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2012
Clear dark brown to black color, light brown head. Malty, light acidic taste. Roasted aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Sweet, acidic scent.
Bottle. Dark brown with a fluffy beige head. Aroma of plums, licorice and coffee. Lightish bodied, rather fizzy. Taste is sweet and fruity with some mocha and a drying finish. OK, but not really my sort of thing. KeefOz (1952) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2012
On tap at microbrewery. Poured a dark colour. Lacked the mouthfeel of a stout (it was light bodied) but a beer to try as an alternative. Stew41 (2118) - Phuket, THAILAND - FEB 23, 2012
Light, uneventful, a modest beer. Soft chocolate and even softer roast define the flavours but there’s not much to grab me. Some grainy fruits late.
