Hatlifter Stout by Grand Ridge Brewery (AUS)

My first stout of the year and this one is a beauty. According to one online encyclopaedia written and edited by its own users, “Stout is a dark beer made using roasted malt or roasted barley, hops, water and yeast.”

The Grand Ridge Brewery is situated in Victoria’s Gippsland and uses pure mountain water for its beers. Their Hatlifter Stout is a deep, dark mahogany in colour when held up to the light and you can smell the roasted grains upon pouring. The flavour is smooth with rich toasted coffee beans and cocoa with a nice bitter chocolate finish. I only wish I’d bought more. Best drunk with slabs of rare, red meat.
