330mL bottle from Bucket Boys, Sydney. 2016 vintage bottle #6821
Not the darkest of stouts - more a deep brown body, ruby edges, holds a small beige head.
Aroma of moderate intensity - roast nuts, vinous black & red fruits, wood & raisins, touch of black coffee & bitter chocolate.
Thick rich syrupy body, plenty of weight & lets you know whose boss from the get go, low carbonation.
Packs more flavour than the aroma suggests - rich chocolate cake, sweetened espresso, molasses, raisins, with an underpinning vinous/red wine plummy, blackberry/currant woody sort of note. Bitterness builds on finish, as does warmth.
Looked a bit pale, but plenty of character here!

Bottle (2015 vintage).
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown to black.
Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, unsweetened chocolate), with notes of sherry, nut shells, cardboard, vanilla, alcohol.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, papery.
Full body, oily/velvety/syrupy texture, soft/lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic.
The aroma is rather simple and a bit too oxidized for my tastes. There’s a sour twang in the mouth I’m not fond of either, and the aftertaste shows the oxidation too. Pretty dull/average all around. wlajwl (7065) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 18, 2017
Aroma is dark malts, dark fruit/raisins and a hint of perfumed sweetness. The flavor is dark fruit, dry dark malts, chocolate/dark chocolate and a mix of acidity, mild sweetness and increasingly warming/alcohol in the finish. DavidWoodruff (631) - Windsor, California, USA - MAR 24, 2017
Black with thin tan head. Aroma of dark dried fruit and tar. Fruity with burnt sugar and tar flavors. Nice viscous body with a long burnt malt finish.
