3.42/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Sampled on tap at the Dux Christchurch in December 07 in pint glass.

Appearance - Deep charcoal black, nice tan, creamy (nitro) head with good retention..

Smell - Difficult to ascertain smell, but hints of mint, licorice, heavy chocolate and coffee. Touch of oats in the mash? Slightly too bitter for me, but appropriate for a dry stout. Somewhat boring, especially as you progress.

Mouthfeel - Smooth, velvety with great level of carbonation for the style (i.e. not much)

Drinkability - Overall, not bad but rather forgettable as stouts go. Nothing too creative in this one, but nothing offensive at all either. Still the best brewpub stout I've had in Oceania...
