...bottle. I was surprised with this beer. Nice tan head, with lacing that lasts. Hard roasted malt notes, low bitterness, and a dry dark fruit\coffee finish. I just picked this up to try a new brew, and it was worth it. True to the style, not too heavy, and masks the alcohol well. Decent stout.

Bottle in Adelaide. Very coffee forward stout with a fair bit of a metallic note. Ok quaffed and fairly similar to coopers stout. Ok ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black color; creamy head. Mild aroma, with some roasted malt and dark chocolate. Milky roasted malt flavor, but the sourness from the roasted malt is disturbing. Wrong.

An otherwise good stout spoiled by an overwhelming foul chemical taste, possibly preservative. Will try another to see if I had a bad batch.

vanvenlo (1842) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2007
23 May 2006 - Light roasted malt aroma. Black colour, OK head and good lacing. Light simple malt flavour. Bitter roasted malt finish and awful stark medicinal aftertaste.

Oakes (16938) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2003
Dark brown with a rocky head. Roasty, toasty. Thin, with a touch of dryness. Makes promises it can't keep.
