3.8/5 rDev +0.5%
Pours black with ruby highlights and a large lasting head.
Nose shows a fair bit of cocoa and plenty of roasted coffee. Pretty hard to find any evidence of the mussels.
Coffee transfers through as a flavour exceptionally well, mixing with some dark chocolate. Once again, it's hard to find what effect the mussels have.
Carbonation is a bit too high in my opinion.

This pours black. Some ruby highlights. Beige head. Retention not great.
Dark chocolate and coffee notes on the nose. Mostly choc.
Similar on the palate. Chocolate up front but some nice coffee bitterness at the back.
It is a bit too thin for my liking.

Bellarine Breweries flagship beer - tasty, well balanced and interesting.
tastes of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate and a touch of citrus that combines well with the salty/savoury flavours of the mussels. An excellent beer and a style you don't see much in Australia (or anywhere - oysters are more commonly used).
Brewed with Australian Blue Mussels caught locally in Port Phillip bay, this is a beer well worth a try.

Sweet malts with chocolate and roast notes are predominant. A hint of coffee.
Very deep brown verging on black colour with a large, foamy tan head. It looks good with decent head retention.
This is a deep, dark, rich stout with lots of roast. Strong bitter coffee and bitter chocolate all play a role. I get a hint of salt which seems to be what the mussels are bringing to the beer. This is good.
Medium body with moderately high carbonation. Not bad.
A tasty beer and pretty bold for an Australian stout. The mussels don't appear to add much but that is probably a good thing.
