On tap at The Tipplers Tap. Smells exactly like a flat white, pours and tastes like one too, the name says it all. Donít try it if you donít love your coffee.

On tap at Scratch Bar 190914. Like a cold cup of black coffee only beerier. Bitter finish with strong coffee overtones.

Looks blacks with some gentle foam. Aroma is subtle coffee - nice. Taste is sweet lactose with coffee rising out - not in your face - just a good drinker. Overall, nice small stout.

Davros (2027) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2014
Pours black with a small head. Nose shows heavy coffee with just the faintest hint of roasted malt and milk chocolate. Flavours include dry roast alongside sweet lactose notes followed by overwhelming amounts of coffee. Body could be thicker. Insane amounts of coffee throughout.

Brenhophead (595) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2014
1L Squealer into a duvel glass. Pours pitch black with a think mocha head and a very nice creamy choc/coffee aroma. Very sweet creamy flavour with lots of esspreso coffee but not to much. Silky smooth mouth feel. Very nice beer.

Several pints over the last two weeks and I keep coming back. A small slightly brown head, very dark black body. Amazing coffee aroma, that follows through in the taste and a lingering body. amazing

Full on coffee aroma backed up by full on coffee taste. Surprisingly full bodied for an average strength brew.

Cantabrian (880) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 19, 2014
I was lured to this stout by the suggestion of milk, or for its alledged sweetness. Looks terribly great, black as a new pair of shoes, with a nice film of white head. It has a powerful aroma of a coffee farm, a silo full of fresh coffee berries (not "beans"), ready to be sundried in the courtyard. Although it is creamy on the palate (the "milk" part of it?), it is equally coffee bitter on the flavour, too powerful in my opinion, this herbal note overwhelming any milkiness or even beerness.

It has been my experience that brewers, who are generally obsessed with flavour and love their coffee, sometimes develop the notion that coffee and beer have to go together and usually in a stout or a porter. They do it with the best of intentions, to marry their two favourite drinks together. However, the path toward brewing nirvana is fraught with peril and the usual outcome is a beer that is completely overwhelmed either by strong coffee or ends up tasting like a handful of gravel because of the grinds. With this particular animal the coffee is strong but surprisingly not overwhelming. It balances nicely with the viscosity and sweetness of the lactose in a pint that demanded another to follow. I have enjoyed 8 Wiredís other coffee offering, but this one was inspired. Bravo Soren.
