From bottle -- Deep, dark black colour with small tan head with not much retention. I had a great time drinking 6 bottles of these. They all went down smooth, each one smoother than the last.
From a bottle. A classic example of the style, roasty and smooth, I’d almost forgotten just good it is. KeefOz (1838) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2017
Tasted as Export Stout, Hobart. Poured an opague jet black with no edge tint and. a 5mm light tan foamy head that diminished quickly. Carbonation very low, slow and fine. Amroma of roasted grain and sweet dark chocolate. Taste was of moderatley strong roasted grain followed by coffee bitterness, dark chocolate sweetness and hints of dark fruits. Medium body with a thin mouthfeel. Smooth with a moderatley strong coffee bitterness and lingering finish. Westkyoto77 (635) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 28, 2016
On tap at Cascade. Poured a jet black with a thin, short-lived tan head. Tasted very bitter after a sweet cider. But was moreish, with interesting flavours of chocolate and dark fruit. Thin. Nice flavours, though; would have again. whoisghost (193) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2016
Cola coloured with a medium tan head. Cocoa and coffee aromas, a little bit of leather. Dark chocolate, coffee and molasses flavours - better than I expected to be honest. Medium to thick body, creamy mouthfeel. Not bad. cadilhac (41) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2016
A little thin, but a solid stout, very chocolaty. An example of the style, with no fuss.

330ml bottle into a washington glass. Full-bodied, strong roasted character, with a pleasantly bitter aftertaste. Dark with medium head. mrjez (621) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 15, 2015
Very mild for a foreign stout. Flavours of roasted malt, nutty, a little chocolate sweetness, but all quite thin and fleeting. Nothing dominates the palate and the aroma is quite subdued. Wim (3980) - Weelde, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2015
