Pours black with a large tan head.
Nose shows heavy roasted malt with some cocoa notes amongst lots of spicy hops and some resinous piny notes. Very American-styled.
Pretty similar falvours, big roasted malt notes, quite dry. Lots of pine and grapefruit along with an aggressive bitterness.
Carbonation is too full-on.

The liquid is warm black (100 EBC). The brown head is finger thick. Some lacing occurs.

The smell is loaded with roasted malt. Some sweet flavours and hoppy flavours. Chocolate, chili peppers and a touch of metal.

Sweet-bitter powerful flavours with grand notes of roasted almost burned malts. Dark chocolate and dry cocoa. Full body. Fruits, both fresh and dried, in the aftertaste. Red berries. No notable alcohol.

The carbonation is fresh with long lived bubbles. The liquid is rather light.

A fine export stout, the flavours are straight on with both chocolate and roasted flavours.

Piana beżowa, długo pozostaje w szkle.
Aromat tego trunku to kawa i chmielowe, trochę trawiaste akcenty.
Smak tego piwa nie pozostawił złudzeń, że jest moc i nie chodzi mi o alkohol. Potężna goryczka, która długo pozostaje w ustach,
mimo to nie zabiła pozostałych walorów smakowych. Dalej były czarne owoce, delikatna sucha trawa, nieco czekolady a na finiszu kawa. Mimo ogromnej goryczki piwo bardzo fajnie zbalansowane, alkohol kompletnie niewyczuwalny. Old Ford Export Stout jest gęsty, masywny, jednak nie przytłacza.
Pije się do bardzo łatwo i z przyjemnością.

330ml bottle purchased from Slowbeer in Melbourne.

Smooth deep, relatively clear black-brown, with a very solid and retentive head of pale mocha. Some streaking lace and fine carbonation. Looks pretty solid.

Smell is gorgeous. Rich, gooey chocolate boxed in by beautiful crisp roasted characters, with a brighter note of fresh ground coffee or capsicum. There's a berry or cherry aroma too which works beautifully, giving a different kind of sweetness. As well as this there's a crumble aromatic brown sugar character which just lends it this sense of warmth and connection. Lovely stuff. Really lovely.

Taste is also extremely good. Clean and bright roast provides a basis, while those lingering berry sweet fragrances dance around the outside. More chocolate, almost a touch of smoke, but mostly just so beautifully rounded and integrated. It's really gorgeous.

Feel is mostly rounded and pleasant. It's not a highlight, but it very much supports the other greatnesses in this beer.

Overall, I'm extremely impressed. This is lovely stuff, well melded and well-integrated. Plenty of delicious flavour but brought together with skill. Absolutely cracking brew.

OLD FORD EXPORT STOUT this is the first in a forthcoming series of special edition brews. as such old ford export stout is only available from our online store and from specially selected bar and restaurant outlets.

rich dark and deep black export stout. complex malt base providing burnt chocolate, espresso coffee, molasses and leather aromas. the complexity of the malts is perfectly balanced by the warmth of the alcohol, punchy bitterness and earthy spice provided by the columbus hops.
