[500ml bottle, courtesy of Sevare] Black as the proverbial. Beige lacing. Soft chocolate roast on the nose, yet on the flavour, some coffee appears alongside. Still heavy choc on the finish. Alcohol takes a back seat. Nice stuff

Bottle from Dan Murphys. Deep brown, almost-black, low carbonation, thin head, smells and tastes better than I was expecting, pleasantly surprised. Nice roasty malt and coffee characters, quite well balanced, if a bit lacking in body, sweetish but dry finish. Not a bad effort really.

Pours nice into the glass with the misconception it is full bodied. Head retention is limited being a stout. Aroma is caramel, chocolate but very weak. Really wanted alot more aroma. Beer in the glass seems abit thin without a hoppy oil film I was expecting. Head retention drop off after a few mouthful’s. Carbonation is excellent! Perfect!. Taste is caramel with coffee and chocolate abit sweet being 60 IBU’s I was expecting a bitter element to cut through the sweetness. Mouth feel seems abit thin as I said before needs more body and oily residue in glass.after a few minutes of taking a taste the bitterness seems to try and cut through the malt. All around a average imperial stout but will be happy to buy again. For me it needed to be abit more heavy in the mouth with abit more bitterness to cut through the sweetness

Bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Very tasty. Aromas of coffee, vanilla. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length. Syrupy, and full bodied. Black, with disappearing head.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2013 Strong coffee taste, a bit bitter. I drank it over a lamb roast and it was great. A strong beer

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown with a light tan head that fades to a coat quite soon but laces OK. Aroma of mocha, molasses, vanilla, pepper, some floral and orange notes. Silky, low carbonation. Some overt alcohol in the mouth, but no real heat. Pretty sweet. Mocha, dark sugars, very modest roasted flavours. Bitterness lurks: at first just stopping the sweetness from getting out of hand, then creeps up a bit. Leans a bit much towards the sweet side of things for me given that there isn’t a real rumbling bottom end, but pretty good. This is a Good Sign.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black body with short head. Chocolate, coffee, smoke and meaty on the aroma with a fairly smooth palate, drinkable though not too impressive for me.
