Pours a reddish brown colour, slightly lighter than I'd expect from a stout. Tan head, large bubbles, retains OK. Not bad.

A little bit sweet on the nose, but plenty of roasty spice as well. Coffee comes through quite strongly. Not bad again.

More coffee on the palate, but tastes a little watered-down. Slight roast but lacks the robustness of a really decent espresso. Slight spice, but not a lot. A little bit bland, sadly, but drinkable enough.

A bit thin on the body, but works fairly nicely with the flavours.

I'm not generally a big fan of coffee stouts, and this is no real exception. Lacks the complexities that can make the difference between a beer with coffee in it and something that really accentuates both coffee and stout notes to become greater than the sum of its parts.

Had on-tap at the GABS festival in Melbourne.

Pours a brownish black hue with a very thin, light body and no depth or haze to it. Head? No head. None at all, not even a slight bubbling at the edges. Looks very insipid.

Weirdly dull aroma as well. Some unpleasant woody PoR characters and a hint of something plasticky. There's noticeable roast, but there's almost nothing to it underneath. Very weak.

Very empty entry on the palate which continues with a weak, slightly watery mid-palate. The only real character comes at the end, with some coffee coming up to give a slight roasted finish. Feel is extremely light.

It's clean enough, and probably drinkable. But I'd probably get so bored drinking it that I'd fall asleep at the bar, fall off my stool and smash my head on the ground. Do you really want that on your conscience, Mash?

First of all this is how they spell it i have not made a mistake and pours a dark kola beer hue which leaves a two finger creamy head and sporadic lacing,the smell is strong dark coffee,vanilla and a touch of dark fruit but the coffee definately is dominant,the mouthfeel is just under medium bodied and comes across more as a porter and has tastes of cappicino,fresh coffee beans,vanilla,mocha,dark fruit,and finished with a hit of cinamon mixed with herbal hops to keep it real and counteract the sweetness nicely and overall its alright and above average but could not see it winning too many awards this week at our beer awards cheers.

Had this on tap at Mash Brewery and bar in Bunbury, Western Australia.
The appearance was good, a very dark, brown-black with a full dark brown head.

Smells good, not much hops, coffee definitely there in the smell, as is some chocolate and spice.
The taste didn't quite live up to the wondrous smell and look, yet still smooth on the tongue, with some coffee, but not the strong taste as in the smell, a little chocolate, and a sweetness on the tip of the tongue. Went down easily with only a touch of bitter after taste. Felt like I expect a stout to feel, thick and rich, luscious in the mouth.

I am a fan of stouts and dark beers in general. This was a solid 4 on my scale.
