a bit of a mass produced stout, being from the carlton folks and all, but I quite like it. its got all the dark aromatics and flavors of roasted barley, cocoa, and spent coffee grounds, but packages neatly in a dryer, thinner bodied version than many. it makes for good warm weather drinking down under, but also makes for plenty of quantity consumption, being as light as it is. not sure why its categorized as a sweet stout here, I don't get any of the lactose sugars or other nonfermentables that make that style what it is. this is pretty straightforward to me, with a great roasty toasty profile throughout and good carbonation too. its bitter in the finish, and the big bottles are not too much due to its unique drinkability. when I lived in Australia, I liked this out of a frozen mug. my affinity for frozen glassware has dwindled since then, but this beer is still fantastic in that format. nothing out of the ordinary here, but a serviceable dark beer in a market that was hurting for that until recently.

Sheaf Stout pours a black color with a very small head. There is a sweet lactose infused aroma with nice mellow roasted notes. The taste has a roasted malty backbone with a nice creamy lactose kick. A little bit light in the flavor, but still very drinkable. Overall a nice and solid stout.
