161116. The first thing that you notice when you pour this beer into a glass is the deep black colour and the thick wavy cap of tan foam that is made up of thousands of tiny little bubbles. Pikes Oakbank Beer is not reknowned for putting out too many different beers so the beers that they do brew are usually very good, as is this one. Burnt malty aroma with some bitter almost sour aromas as well. In the mouth the beer is initially thin however it builds to reveal wonderful dark chocolate flavours with a burnt bitter finish that leaves a slight coating on the tongue. The beer is quite lively and would pair well with a bowl of peanut brittle ice cream. This beer was purchased from A Point of Difference Liquor and at 5.2% ABV it is an easy drinking stout.

jasecam (2) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2016 does not count
Nice dark appearance oozing chocolate and, surprisingly, olive aromas. Olive flavour continues early in mouth before being overtaken by the chocolate. Nice balance, not too heavy. Could drink these all night, summer or winter.

A lighter style stout, dark brown in colour. A little thin on the palate, but clean. Not a lot of roast character, quite restrained.

floydian1 (1448) - FNQ, Australia, - MAY 9, 2014
From a 330ml bottle. Black pour with healthy off white head that lingers and provides a soapy lace. Dark chocolate dominates the nose with notes of roasted malts and coffee beans. Palate is light and thin for a stout with abrupt sweet roasted malt flavours and low bitterness. Nothing stands out really. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Unm4rk3d (86) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle from Melbourne Street Fine Wine Cellars. Whilst having one of the better aromas from a stout, it does not really bolster a genuine stout feel. A very watery thin stout.

rangamike (28) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2014
From bottle. Over carbonated and a bit watery. Bitterness and roasted flavour is ok, but much better stout examples available from this region. See Clare Valley King Kong Stout.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2013
Light sweeter drinking stout, bit hoppier than usual. Tasted out of the bottle, could not comment on appearance.

Cantabrian (1110) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 21, 2013
Ruby black with a nice creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, charred, burnt, but still quite pleasant. Same on flavour, with the addition of chocolate milk, a touch of sourness, wood, oak, perhaps. Rather thin on the palate, this is an easy beer to drink, goindg down well. The overall experience is superior to the sum of individual characteristics. Only a negative note on the unnecessary use of the word "philosophy" by the manufacturers on the product description above.

Bottle from Plonk. Darkest brown with quickly diminishing fine head, aroma of chocolate milk, cigarette ash, roasted grain, flavours of bitter/burnt coffee, dark chocolate, roasted grain, quite light/thin in the mouth, almost watery, soft carbonation.
