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

Very malty aroma. Jet black colour with excellent head. Nice toffee malt flavour with smooth coffee finish. Heavy body with medium carbonation.

Fantastic dark beer. The coffee aftertaste can get a bit much after five of them. Id still go out of my way to get one though.

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!

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
