Patersoi (152) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2016
Feral head overflowed glass badly. Subtle chocolate and vanilla aroma. Subtle coffee, chocolate and vanilla flavours and s touch of charcoal on the finish. Some sweet malt to end it all.

nickd717 (4165) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Cask pours dark brown with a shockingly large tan head. Light roast anise aroma. Flavor has roast, slight sour malt, not much for hops. Smooth on the mouthfeel, medium body. Decent.

Mr_Pink_152 (3739) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Part of my 2013 backlog, and brought back from oz by family. Colour is black with a small head. Aroma has chocolate, fruit, and deep caramel. The taste has these too with roasted malt.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2013
Pours dark and opaque with a light tan head that dissipates quickly. Strong coffee aroma. Strong roasted malt flavour, but not much else. Lacks in flavour for a porter, with only slight hints of chocolate and caramel. The base for a delicious beer is there, but it falls just short of the mark

StevieT (1601) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2013
Great rich smooth malty flavours with a sweet aftertaste. Could drink a lot of these on a cold night

KeefOz (1533) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2012
Poured a dark brown to black colour with a thin light brown head that diminished quickly leaving little lace. Moderate carbonation. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste smooth and of roasted grain followed by some sweetness. Medium body.
