DuffMan (9610) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 25, 2009
Hand-pulled from the cask at Albar in Dunedin. The bar was dim, and this appeared pitch black with a low, thick, brown head. Very roasty aroma, slightly vegetal. Rich, creamy, full-bodied roast flavour, coffee, vegemite, and bitter chocolate. After the palate adjusts to the assault of flavour and richness, a subtle sweetness becomes evident (maple, vanilla) as does a slightly tangy brine in the bitter finish. They received this in cask just yesterday, and the freshness and smoothness add to an already very impressive brew. Outstanding!

hawthorne00 (3541) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2012
Bottle, 8C. Black with a light tan head that hangs around. Gentle aroma is roasty with barley and coffee, shellfish are there put not dominant - more like drinking a stout at the beach in winter than anything else. Medium bodied, silky texture. Not very sweet with coffee and chocolate. Vanilla, soft licorice. Slightly astringent, only a little briny. Firm bitterness at the end thatís a little woody as well as salty.

maneliquor (3484) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours very dark brown with a small tan head which quickly disappears. Some light spotty lacing. Nose shows heavy powdery cocoa and sea salt. Quite roasty. Straight forward stuff but very appealing either way. Taste shows heavy roast, milk chocolate, salt, almost briney. A real powdery and creamy mouth feel to it. Damn well made
