Smells like wet dog(most likely bad glass). Black with off-white head. Taste like a coffee porter watered out with sodawater. Thin.
Poured from 330mL bottle. Brownish black with tan head. Lots of roasted malt, burnt bitter coffee flavour with a bit of ash, some mild chocolate, lighter body though. JuanFernandes88 (55) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2017

Bottle sample at a tasting at Alexey & Raphaela’s place. Thanks Alexey. Dark brown to black. Lots of chocolate, cocoa, some roast, sweetish, sourish hint, bitterish finish, medium-bodied. Decent. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2017

Hobbit Tasting. Black colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is chocolate, some ripe fruits, mild roasted and ashy notes with some slight liquorice too. Flavour is roasted and ashy with some ripe fruits, mild wood as well as some slight toasted notes.
A fine porter being big on the sweet chocolatey roasty malts with hints of dark berries, nuts and coffeebeans. A mild earthy dry hop bitterness at the finish. Lovely smooth flattish palate of light-medium body. Pours opaque dark brown with a dense tan head showing good duration and lace. (330ml bottle).

On the hand pump at the Keg & Brew at Surry Hills. Pours a chocolate brown colour with a light tan-coloured head. The aroma is of chocolate and roasted malt, as is the flavour, with some residual sweetness. Overall, a reasonably good quality beer. Dervock (1342) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2016
Bottle - pours black with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and a flowery sweetness. Taste is sweet up front with a drying lingering finish. KeefOz (1838) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2016
Poured an opaque black with a very slight mahogany edge tint and a one- to two- finger light tan dense foam head that retained very well but laced poorly. Aroma of light coffee, sweetness, vanilla and dark earthy malt. taste initially of strongly roasted coffee that subsides plus caramel sweetness and vanilla with a low bitterness. Medium body, a bit thin for a stout. Smooth but not so creamy (quite a fizzy mouthfeel for a stout) and with sweet vanilla on the finish. Nice. Mjollnir (404) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle. Pours opaque brown-black with a thin tan head. Strong chocolaty aroma with a hint of coffee. Mild bitterness, low sweetness, a little roast and some acidity. Medium body, soft carbonation with a long finish. Kurtos (200) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark black colour
Aroma. smells of roasted malt backed by a nice smokiness and slight syrupy sweetness.
Taste. a nice smokiness is there throughout, and what i can best describe as a roasted cocoa and roasted malts in general.
Overall. nothing too special, but still drinkable.
