imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle, pours opaque deep brown black with big tan head. Aromas of toast, anise, caramel, bread and toasted nutty malts. Medium body, seemingly sour-burnt toasty anise character, balancing sweet caramel and chocolate malts. Finishes lightly sour burnt and sweet balanced. Very interesting.

Roasted nuts and coffee come through on aroma. Also toast, burnt malts come through on initial taste. Smooth in mouthfeel. Pleasant finish. A well put together beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle. Pours a thick black, thin tan head, rich coffee aroma, roasted flavours with dark chocolate bitterness. Very smooth and well worth it.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
Rich choc aroma with sweet fudgey notes. Mostly a porter but not any "steinbier" character. Good porter though,

Keg at the earl of Essex. Opaque black pour with a thin off white head. Flavour is Barry coffee and choc. Some hedgerow berry. Tasty beer.

Pyobon (943) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2013
(Bottle) Very dark brown with no head; looks rather like cola. Faint but pleasant aroma of toffee and hot cross buns. Medium body with soft fine carbonation. Unusual and very pleasant taste. Refreshing start which devils a caramel sweetness, followed by dark toffee and dark roast malt with hints of burnt toast and finishing with a bitterness that is more bitter chocolate or coffee than hops. Very drinkable.

ComradeK (1042) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2012
500ml bottle, 2012 edition. Pours a nearly opaque deep chestnut with a smallish light beige head, which lasts fairly well, leaving good lace. Roasty, grainy malt and some caramel make up the aroma, with some faint leafy hops in there as well. Light leafy and slightly sappy hops notes introduce it, leading into a smooth, malty mid-palate, with roasty and nutty notes predominant. A burnt caramel character develops towards the finish, which is a little spicy and quite dry. A nice easy-drinker, with a little bit of character to keep things interesting.

Gramoit (357) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2012
Pretty disappointing to be honest. Nothing to write home about on the nose. The taste isnít bad but pretty average, some nice malt flavours, however it is dampened by a strange almost metallic taste. Overall an average beer

Niksko (354) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2012
On tap at Beer DeLuxe. Pours a cloudy dark amber with lots of beige head. Nose is pretty artificial, but not necessarily bad. Smells a little like grape and strawberry candy. Taste is pretty similar, with some plum and some strawberry candy notes. Some good bitterness on the finish. Nice, but not fantastic.
