ALLOVATE (3075) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2016
At just on cool and into a snifter. Cola brown bordering black in body with a short, dense tannish head. Aroma of roasted cacao beans, bitter cocoa nibs, dusty dark earth, roasted coffee and molasses. Smooth, dry and pasty in back. Good mouthfeel, well rounded with a lightly sweet, but mostly savoury and umami front. Bitter cocoa and cacao, scorched wood and earth. Residually dusty and earthy. Not huge in body but soft in carbonation and yielding enough oomph to lift it. A lovely stout, well melded and sessionable!

It’s syrupy black with a dark tan head, it is exactly as the label suggest, a chocolate oatmeal sweet stout, usually chocolate stouts come out really bitter but this is well balanced. ngunity (179) - - JUL 18, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2015 Opaque with a bit of gas this poured with healthy head from a bottle and drank quite well with nice balance. Be glad to have another Patersoi (180) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2015
Pours dark brown with a quickly dissipating tan head. Nice soft mouth feel and a malty sweetness that is quickly followed by a loong lingering charcoal flavour.

From a bottle. Roasted flavours are balanced with the chocolate, smooth and thick, good stuff.

Perfectly ok, just not a stand-out. You’d expect a bit more flavour given the alcohol content. Coopers stout could compete with it. On tap at the Wheaty. mattyhennessy (377) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2014
Tap. Pours dark brown with a reddish tinge and a tan head. Aromas of oats, coffee and chocolate with some sweet caramel and liquorice. Taste highlights the chocolate and data and is finished with some liquorice and molasses. Not exceptional, but very delicious on a cold day
