Pours dark brown, coffee, chocololate, sweetish in aroma. Taste is interesting, feels like a double dry Stout. It has roast, chocolate, liquorice, quite light in body,. Not like an Imperial Stout, feels drier and lighter.

On tap at OGH. Dark and thick with a strong head. Lots of toast and nutty flavours up front with a boozy port finish.

Bottle shared. Big roasty cacao nib nose with coffee and deep prune. Well-balanced on the palate with the alcohol being hidden well. Intensely roasty, not bitter by any means just too much roast that kind of overwhelms everything else. Dark chocolate and roasted malt on the finish.

[8213-20160509] 500mL bottle. Roasted nutty malt grain aroma. Black body has a medium-lasting foamy brown head which frothed up quite big, quickly, and died. Bitter roasted malt and woodsy nut grains flavour has a tangy finish. Full body seems infected. We just bought this from the brewery today so it’s surprising to see it already infected from the source... Too bad. (7/3/6/3-/12) 3.1-
(Labelled ’Nocturne Double Stout’)

2016-05-09. Black body, massive foamy brown head foams out of the glass. 3++ Aroma of dry toasty roast has a tangy undercurrent. Flavour is similar, dry toasty roast with very tangy undertones. Average bodied palate, effervescent carbonation. Okay. The carbonation and the tang suggest an infection unfortunately, despite having bought it at the brewery today. Bottle labelled Nocturne Double Stout from Hallertau Brewbar, Auckland, NZ. 7/3-4/6-7/3/14

This is daily decent, the initial aroma dissipates somewhat and becomes less of a thing, although it was quite nice with a milky chocolate thing. Taste is intriguing, this is rather dry at the finish and there is a lot of sugarness in it. Might just be lightly too bitter to be really enjoyable.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2016 now called Nocturne I believe, from bottle poured solid black with a frothy tan head & a roasty malt aroma the taste is similar as per the label rich roasty coffee toasty light chocolate fruity bitter hides the alcohol well very nice

beer-yum (1364) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 12, 2014
An excellent brew that is both full bodied and well balanced. Compared favorably with many others of the style during a tasting session. One of the better beers from Hallertau in my book.

Bottle from the source. Almost completely black color, brown head, solid lacing. Aroma of fresh pine, cocoa. Taste is rich burnt espresso, dark unsweetened cocoa. Delicious.
