Bottle shared by alexsdad06.
Poured clear dark brown color with medium brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy roasted chocolate malt, woody and tobacco aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration to long duration.
My expectations where met with a very good stout.

Black with a disappearing off-white head. Weak aroma of malt, chocolate and licorice. Sweet malty flavour with chocolate and a roasted note. Somewhat disappointing considering the strength and the brewery.

Bottle @ OzíníNZ tasting 2011.
Completely black with a small, creamy, beige head. Aroma has light milk, chocolate, a bit of liqourice, mild cold coffee. Lowish carbonation, soft and velvety creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet (indeed very sweet), roasted malts, milky chocolate. Light dry. Very lovely, but sure could use some bitterness to balance the sweetness.

Bomber from thetomG. Thanks! Pours pitch black with a fizzy medium sized brown head. Poor head retention and OK lacing. Aroma of chocolate, toffee, lightly roasted malts and a sweet note. The taste is roasted malts, a lactic note, some caramel and some toastiness. Almost a coconut-like note. Medium bodied. Nicely done. Good beer.
