douglas88 (6021) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a pure black color with a tan head. A big nose: fruity, nutty and huge coffee. The flavor is mostly toasted malt and big sweet coffee, light milk, some hazelnut. Good brew. Surprised it is so low in alcohol.

ALLOVATE (2411) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2013
At cellar temperature and into a shallow chalice. Black as midnight and opaque with not too much going on. Head survives a good sixty seconds before fading off to legs and little else. Rich, dense and complex nose that showcases the extreme grain-bill. Spicy and raw with inklings of roasted carob and cocoa, timber shavings and OXO cubes, fresh strapped leather and lightly roasted coffee beans, top-soil and bitter, damp herbs. Like something suffering a bad case of bi-polar it is unusually mellow and soft in the mouth. Sooty, ashen and smoky making for a very dry stout. Body is medium-light and foamy with moderate carbonation up-front and a smooth tail end. Long length that hints at charred coffee beans and bitter weeds. The palate well spiced, grainy and malty but much leaner than anticipated for flavour. Ash really dominates. I must say I quite like it as it does drink really well, but is overall a little undemanding. (1 pint, 6 fl.Oz, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

WheatKing (1296) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours dark brown with slight tan head. Aroma of a lot of roast, some robust coffee, dark chocolate. Flavour is fairly sweet, simple coffee, nice oaty viscosity. Couldn’t really pick out any of the other grains.
