look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Deep chocolate brown not wanting to let any light through. Decent head dissipating quickly, leaving nice light tan lacing. Light malty nose with hints of sugared coffee. Taste, to me, has a hint of licorice up front, followed by some bitter malt and roasted(almost burnt) coffee. Not bad, a little unbalanced, but overall, ok !

4.16/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Format: a traditional Coopers brown 375mL bottle. A standard macro lager label.

Appearance: looks exactly as a stout should: a non-transluscent jet black body, with a dark tan head that drops from one finger to a creamy half. Good lacing too.

Aroma: a stronger aroma than the majority of stouts. Plenty of heavy chocolate and roast coffee. Some smoke also.

Taste: very strong roast malts and cocoa, with the smoke and some bitterness.

Aftertaste: the finish is quite chocolatey, with some bitterness from the roasted malts. Lingers for quite a time.

Mouth feel: medium in body with an almost lager-like carbonation, which makes it a refreshing and easy to drink stout.

Overall: one of my favourite stouts. Well put together, very traditional style with a big, punchy flavour. Add to that a price of AU$58 a case of 24 x 375mL, and this is also one of the best value stouts around, along with CUB's Sheaf Stout.
