I saw a local beer section at the Safeway grocery store in Newcastle tonight. I found an Australian stout and figured it was a good night for adventure!
The beer was strong. Much more flavorful than Guinness. I'm not a Stout guy but this beer makes you feel like a Viking!
My wife said it was horrendous, that it tastes like burned wood. One of my boys tasted it and feigned an inability to breathe. The other said it was "really spicy."
They're all right... But I love it. My favorite Stout!
