Oakes (15294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2016
Dark brown. Not much head. Oily, slightly burnt, a touch of alcohol. Rich, burnt sugars, touch of torched fruit. Kind of a simple character, but fairly intense.

Dredd (787) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2016
Nice, but pushing the limit of being boozy. Cocoa aroma, boozy stewed prune flavor with dry cocoa finish. Aftertaste is boozy

Ferris (12143) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle - Dark roasty cocoa. Deep dark brown with a small light brown head. Dirty cocoa notes, overcarbed and a long light bitter finish. Not great.

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2016
Tasting at Matt’s
Black color, beige head. Dark brown color, near black, with beige frothy head. Aroma of cheap chocolate and tobacco. Roasted malts flavor, a bit sour, coffee, heavily roasted nuts.
Weird.

beerplace (605) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2016
500ml bottle at Matt’s. Aroma is saddle, leather, roasted seeds. Taste is hoppy bitterness, burnt malt. Burnt malt, hoppy bitternesa aftertaste. Strange one :-)

mcberko (13492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
500mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma smells a bit off, with a slight sour note, and roasted malt. Flavour is heavy on the roasted malt, with some bitter dry cocoa, and an off-putting bitter astringency. Mind-boggling how this has such a high rating. Messy, incoherent and potentially infected. Not impressive.

wrlangin (133) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2016
330 ml bottle from Grand Central Cellars in Brisbane. Pours pitch black with medium tan head. Very mild aroma of chocolate. Taste is strong, almost burnt roasted malt. Fairly bitter aftertaste. Ok, but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Patersoi (152) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2016
Coffee aromas and front palate. Chocolate and hints of hazelnut as well. Lovely soft mouth feel but the alcohol interferes with this and comes to the fore on the finish.

jonno (2448) - JAPAN - DEC 29, 2015
Listed as 8% on my bottle. Fairly straight forward but well made big Stout. A little tame, but flavours well folded together and some interesting depth, though never really straying out of safer waters.

Muggus69 (2020) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2015
330mL bottle from Slowbeer 2015 vintage Pitch black, thick looking, pours a big brown head, persists as a dense creamy collar. Aroma quite rich - burnt nutty malts, dark sugars/molasses, dark roast coffee, cocoa, hints of vinous/dried fruits in the mix. Full bodied, rich without being cloying or too thick, creamy carbonation, good length, Plenty of chocolate pudding, rich caramels, espresso, bitter chocolate, raisins, touch of earthy woodiness. Long dry finish, big bitterness. Rather tasty stuff, not as big as expected for a 10%er
