Chocolate Stout for Easter, suggestions from Down Under

Slow Beer's suggestion for Easter... I agree! Who needs peeps or a hollow milk chocolate bunny?

Pours dark dark brown with substanital dark tan coloured head. Aromas of dry coco and vanilla dominate. Palate is rich and viscous with hazelnut, chocolate and some dry coffee roast. Caramel/honeycombe malt supports well to make way for a roasty, bitter finish.
