750ml bottle, just capped, purchased from Slowbeer in Melbourne.
Pours a very light-bodied dark cola-brown colour, with a fizzling head of mocha foam that settles down to a bubbly ring around the edge of the glass. Some small-bubbled carbonation. Overall, it looks like slightly flat Coke.
Nose is heavy on the coffee, but it's a weak, filtered coffee grounds sort of aroma, and it has minimal sweetness or depth to back it up. There's a hint of something spicy in it as well, like the spike of chilli in some mild chilli chocolate. But really, it's pretty dull, and one-dimensional.
Taste is similar, but perhaps a little better. Here the coffe comes through much as expected with the aroma: a slightly rough overextracted, husky coffee character, but this is backed up with a mild nutty, grainy character, and a wavering sweetness on the back that gives a hint of musk. Body is still extremely thin, however, and leaves little room for the flavours to do very much.
I mean, at 5.7%, it's a pretty low-budget stout anyway, especially when trying to layer it with coffee as well. There are some things to be said for that, but overall, this feels like a half-hearted and pretty insipid effort.
