On tap. Pours a very dark brown with light tan head. Aromas of coffee, fruit and malts. Flavors are similar but stronger with define black coffee notes and a slight sour fruitiness. Nice.

Had on draft at the brewery. The aroma is big dark chocolate notes, coffee. The flavor is chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. The coffee in this is very clean and does not have any green pepper notes.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate, cereal, dough, and a light bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the stout, grains, and coffee. Average texture, sort of light for its style. A decent beer but could be way better.

Muggus69 (1132) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2013
650mL bottle Nice looking beer; deep cola-brown body with a creamy tan head hanging around. Subdued aroma. Roasted nuts, cocoa, wholegrain bread crust, treacle, with some coffee bean and earthy spice. Medium body, particularly dry and particularly textural - slick, oily, somewhat tannic. Moderately high carbonation perhaps a bit overdone. More of the same on the body; quite nutty, dry cocoa, earthy coffee bean character, some grainy character but not pronounced. Very dry finish with a lingering bitterness. Think they’ve probably gone a bit overboard with adding coffee on top of a 7 grain stout. Ultimately, I see it as a miss opportunity on 2 fronts - the grain character wasn’t pronounced enough, nor was the coffee, i’m left somewhere in the middle somewhat bamboozled thinking "Well it should have been one, or the other.". Interesting enough beer regardless.

I found this very watery, and thats not what im looking for in a stout. Coffee aroma, slight bitters to taste. Not impressed

Bomber. Pours dark brown with a small off white head. Aroma of roasted malt and of course coffee. Flavour is the same with big coffee taste.
