M_Sack (773) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2014
UPDATED: APR 23, 2016 Bottle. Deep black with a thin cream head and heavy lacing. Strong aromas of coffee, chocolate and milk followed by just a hint of lemon blossom hops. Heavy coffee flavour with a lick of milk chocolate. Luscious, strong mouthfeel at the front of the palate followed by an immaculately integrated dry, bitter finish. Quality stuff.

Lunkie (1963) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2014
Herbal spice bitter coffee aroma. Dark brown colour poor head and lacing . Malt stale coffee bitter flavour. Flat palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Effervescent and dull black body. Tan head which dissipates leaving a healthy amount of lacing. The lager yeast leaves space for the bitter coffee to shine, which is phenomenal. Big roasted bill and a hint of dark choclate. Pretty thin malt character and a watered down finish. All in all a smooth, medium bodied black lager.

StevieT (2039) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2014 I love it, I like my beers like I like my coffee; black and strong and this fits the bill. Pours thick and black with a tan head, very smooth with rich coffee and chocolate flavours.

Niksko (627) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2013
650ml bottle.
Pours black with a finger of tan, large bubbled head.
Nose is really lovely, roasted coffee, and not much else. Maybe a hint of sweet malt.
Flavour is very coffee forward. Coffee throughout the palate, but a little bit of floral hops in the mid palate. Finish is slightly sweet with a great combination of fruity hop bitterness and coffee bitterness.
Medium bodied, with a sort of dry, tannic mouthfeel from the coffee. It also left some really zany lacing in my glass, sort of cloudy and murky with little spots of head.
Pretty enjoyable. The actual beer flavour is very clean, and it lets the coffee shine through. However I can’t help but wonder whether this would have been better with a slightly more complex base beer.

mattyhennessy (377) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2013
Coffee-black pour with a yellow-white head. Moderate carbonation. Very strong coffee flavours as expected, however there is no overpowering bitterness that is usually associated with beers that have added coffee. Very light bodied, as it uses lager yeast that makes this beer perfect for the months between summer and winter, as it has qualities suitable for both .

gnoff (10985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2013
Draught as part of a tasting paddle at Archive Beer Boutique and Bistro, Brisbane, on July 19, 2013.
Black color with red hues, brown head. Roasted, coffee, dry taste. Coffee, dry, roasted aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high dry griany bitterness. Malty, grainy, coffee, roasted scent.
