Bottle from mane liquor. Pours pitch black with ridiculously dark tan, firm head. Nose is full of dark chocolate, bitter coffee, liquorice and light milk chocolate sweetness. Taste is really roasty. Bitter chocolate, liquorice, rich caramel and some coffee. Lovely bitterness to finish. Really good stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pure deep black oily poor with nice tan head. Big beer. Great smoothness up front like a chocolate beer milk shake some bitter sharp after taste on the back palate from the alcohol but not unpleasant. Flavour dominated by roasted molasses and chocolate. Very good!

Överlägset bästa IS jag smakat. Rostad härlighet, fyllig som få. Tjock som motorolja med en härlig eftersmak av malt, malt och lite mer malt. En liten hint av bitterhet för att hindra malten att ta över. Underbar.

A perfect companion for Melbourne winter. Jet black with a tan head. Fruity and oily with plum, espresso, cocoa and some vanilla aroma and flavour. If imperial stouts had a standard to beat, this would be it

355mL bottle BB 24/12/14 Sinisterly black oily looking liquid. Dark tan foam holds a small dense head. Legs form on the glass (!) Rich aroma, plenty on offer; lots of dark chocolate, espresso aplenty, black roast huskiness, burnt toast, with a good deal of woody spice and hint of American hop citrus. Smooth, silky on the palate, lingers long, low carbonation, deceptive! Decadent body; cocoa, coffee bean, burnt toffee, roasted nuts, toast & vanilla, dried leafy spice and citrus. Flavour very well integrated; there question really is; where are the 90IBUs & 10.5% alcohol!? Great balance indeed! Excellent beer, tremendously well put together and tasty.

Bottle. Black with a dark brown head. Loads of roasted malt and liquorice in aroma. Taste is heavily roasted with cocoa powder, vinous notes, cigar, liquorice, prominent hop bite and slight alcohol heat. Full bodied, medium carbionation, thick. Dry bitter and peppery after taste.
