300 ml bottle
Appearance: Transparent reddish dark brown. Off white head, large and fine froth with thick swiss cheese lacing;
Aroma: alcohol and yeast, a smidgen of chocolate and a sour citrus;
Taste: mildly yeast and sour and bitter.
Palate: Light bodied, effervescent, thin texture;
Overall: I would think it should be marketed as a lite brown ale. There is nothing stout about this stout. It is palatable but not a repeater. gam (3930) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2010

Brownish, with pale-to-light brown head. Dry roasty aroma. Flavour has pleanty of roastyness, a little smoke and a hint of coffee. Pleanty of body for a schwarz. It’s all right. mickmac (486) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours with an average sized brown head over a dark ruby body. Soy sauce-like aroma. Quite subdued flavours of soy sause-molasses notes, finishing with a hint of sweetness. m2swim (15) - Idaho, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Bottle purchased from the brewery. Pours a deep reddish color with a nice, long lasting head. Initial aroma hints of coffee, chocolate and caramel. Nice mouth feel - slightly chewy. Above average finish.

Aromas of dark chocolate, a touch of orange peel. Enticing. Fruity esters. Deep brown, ruby colour.
Dark chocolate flavour with a touch of tangerine at the finish. A very pleasant drop and one worth going back for.
