Is the only beer for me-no hangover-not too thick and prefer it as tap beer. Visited the brewery on the West Coast, bloody marvellous ! Cant remember leaving though Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2014
Very malty aroma. Jet black colour with excellent head. Nice toffee malt flavour with smooth coffee finish. Heavy body with medium carbonation. beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 17, 2001

Fantastic dark beer. The coffee aftertaste can get a bit much after five of them. I'd still go out of my way to get one though. SilkTork (5804) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2003
Bottled. Nice beer. Very drinkable - it slips down smooth and easy with bags of roasty toasty chocolate and coffee flavours, a delicate sweetness, an endearing oiliness and a lip smacking finish that it's all gone before you have time to take notes. I'll get this one again! MorganDavis (17) - Ballarat, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2005
I found this marked down by 8 dollars to AU$5.50, so I thought I might as well give it a shot. I need more. Lots more. How come no one has ever told me about this one? The most standout characteristic is the roasty-chocolatey aroma and flavour. JuanFernandes88 (70) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2017
Nice drinkable black beer. Good dose of chocolate, coffee, caramel and biscuit. A lighter dark beer, less creamy and more carbonation. Almost like a session dark beer.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2003 This is good shit. Despite the rant on the label about the complexity yielded from the use of 5 different malts, all I got was a really burnt chocolate taste which is fuckin fine by me. For all those Aussies tryin to decide on a new sixy from the Marly bottle-o --- its like Tooheys old taken to its logical conclusion (i.e. actually using dark malts for flavour) mixed with whatever motor oil CUB add to Sheaf Stout: wicked!!! It went down well nice after toking on a mad spliff too.
