fletchfighters (1136) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2012
A-- Poured more dark brown than black. Settled Black but very opaque. Lots of reddish brown tints to this. Brown sugar colored head, settled at one finger, good head retention and no visible carbonation once all settled down. Pour showed medium carbonation. S-- Sweet chocolate, anise, and a boozy nose. Coffee is very faint and overpowered by the anise smell. Very anise and alcohol forward. T-- Very sweet and alcohol forward taste. Sweet chocolate, anise (lots of it) and a lot of booze. Just a faint bit of coffee in this. M-- Malts decide to show up in the mouth, as well as the coffee. Just a bit of a bitter coffee taste. Really thin for the smell. Very aggressive front (chocolate, booze, and anise) but weak back (coffee and roasted malt). Medium carbonation but needs a bit less. D-- Sipper. Big time sipper.

jonnyguns (1076) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours a pitch black with tanned head. Aromas of roasted chocolate, malts and molasses. Taste is heavy on the chewy maltiness and caramel with some chocolate. Really chewy! Better than I expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a medium-sized beige head, which fades rapidly and leaves no lacing. The aroma has some dark chocolate, but also cold coffee grounds and a slightly musty smell; on the whole it is not great. A flash of bitter cocoa up front is soon overcome, weirdly, by banana. This is followed by cold coffee in the mid-palate leading into a very overtly alcoholic finish. This is not a great beer. Both the aroma and flavour have some unpleasant and jarring notes, and it tastes every bit of 8% ABV, so it feels both unbalanced and unsubtle.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours black with nice tan head. Super sweet aromas of caramel & toffee. Also a little alcohol. Flavours are very sweet once again with heaps of caramel, toffee and treacle. Some alcohol to the finish. Mouthfeel is very syrupy,

Salmoniform (1005) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Poured from bottle to glass. Jet black with an off-white head that dissipated quickly to a thin ring arond the glass. Aroma is huge malts, roasty, sweet, nutty, bready, stone fruits, raisins, cola, yeast esthers. Full body and light carbonation provides for a great mouthfeel. Very sweet with a faint CO2 sharpness and an esthery finish with faint hop elements and slight ethanol. Overall, this is a really good super malt-forward imperial porter but almost bordering cloyingly sweet.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2010
Bottle. Very dark ruby pour, almost black, with a fluffy tan head that lasts a little while. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of milk chocolate, toffee, molasses, dark fruit, and vanilla. Flavour is very similar to aroma with additional notes of honey, coffee and some noticeable alcohol. Mouthfeel is light for the style, almost watery, with moderate carbonation and a lingering roasty, sweet finish with very little bitterness. Quite a good porter if a little two-dimensional, easy to drink but a little too sweet to be sessionable.

DWFIG; (Drunk with friend in Gdansk) Pours dark brown with a small fading, tan head. Nose is dried fruity, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Taste is heavy sweet and medium roasted, moderate lasting. Body is full, texture is creamy, carbonation is flat to soft. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrBeerFanatic (888) - Friona, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Pours a dark black with a creamy frothy head. Aromas of big toffee, caramel, roasted malt, and biscuit. Flavors of toffee, caramel, bread, slight nuttiness, and light biscuit. Medium sweet. No alcohol noticed. Light bitterness. Light roasted malt/toffee finish. Rated while watching the X-files. Mostly a dominant erosion of toffee maltyness which reminds mush of a bock.
