Bottle thanks to Aaron! Pours deep black, small tan head, decent lacing. Aroma is dry and roasty, hints of lactose, anise and cocoa. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter, quite roasty but not acidic. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Quite tasty.

A conservative stout in its balance of flavours and all of them are good. Smooth, soft and satisfying in flavour and feel, easy to drink.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 330ml bottle into shaker. Milk chocolate aroma.This beer is totally opaque, no light can escape. Good solid tan head. Full bodied, flat mouthfeel. Liquorice is instantly noticeable then a long long finish of dark chocolate, cocoa and a touch of fruity hoppy bitterness. Just a hint of warming alcohol is present. Great beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A beautiful beer that entices with it’s tan, lacey head before spilling around the mouth with coffee and smokey tastes. Not too much CO2 to detract from the oily smoothness. Goes superbly with mature cheddar.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle) Very dark with small tan head. Nice aroma - coffee and chocolate with liquorice and spice hints. Fantastic palate - full bodied, but not sticky, with smooth and bright carbonation. Great taste - rich and smooth, dark malts but little sweetness, nice hop bitterness for balance, some toasty notes. Excellent beer - too hard to put down, which could be dangerous for 7.4%

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap - Solid effort - plenty of earthy hops - full bodied roast malt with the aforementioned vanilla and licorice notes but no chocolate - seems in the flavour mould of Guiness but stratospherically better - would have liked a head on it, more choc malt and a tiny touch more carbonation but still much enjoyed.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL bottle. Pours opaque brown/black with a thin persistent tan head which leaves a little lacing. Strong roasted aroma of coffee sweetened with molasses, some chocolate and wood. Mild bitterness, more coffee, chocolate, roast. Full body, bordering on syrupy, fairly soft carbonation, although it does have some bite. A lingering finish of bitter roasted coffee. Did I mention the roast?
