On tap. Pours a solid black with a foamy brown head and lacing. It has a rich aroma of hoppy pine, coffee, dark malt, and some dark chocolate. The flavor is rich coffee and malt with some hops in the middle and a long, dark chocolate and hop finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brentv (398) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2014
On tap at the Beer Station in Xiamen, China (I must be following GuideDogSaint). Pour is black with a big beige head and lots of thick lacing on the glass. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Taste is coffee and chocolate roasted malts, with a big helping of hoppy bitterness in the taste and finish. Dry. Medium mouthfeel.

jmgreenuk (4961) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2014
Tap at Mikkeller, Bangkok. Poured a dark mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is yeast, creamy spice roasted malt. The flavour is strong bitter with a crisp refreshing roasty grass hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied witn soft carbonation. More like a black IPA than a stout imo.

mkel07 (3669) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2014
On tap at Archive. Rating from 2013. Great stout from across the ditch with everything that a great stout should have, Burnt malt, bitterness and deep black colour.

kiwianer (3385) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 3, 2013
The head is good, the body black. It smells darkmalty, great-hoppy, aromatic. The taste is darkmalty, delicious, aromatic, roasty, balaned, bit hoppy, more bitter. Great. 13/12/13/13/-/13

pmuzz (400) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2013
Probably the most standard and boring of the 8 wired beers I have tried. It neither pushes the boundaries of the style or blows me away. It needed to pack a bit more punch.

Draft. Blackish beer with a cream head. Light malt and light grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and light pine flavor with light coffee. Medium bodied. Grapefruit and light pine linger with light coffee.

Unusually ’usual’ for an 8 Wired brew but a nice drop nonetheless. Makes a nice lead-in to their outstanding imperial version of the style.

Lovely coffee flavour comes though this delicious dark malty stout. A little hoppy, remniscent of the Funk Estate Black IPA or the Garage Project Aro Noir but doesn’t quite go that far hop-wise. A dark beer but not heavy in any way (looking at you, Guinness!), very enjoyable experience from one of my favourite breweries.
