Nice stout with coffee & tart. Not the expected chocolate kick however. Fruity esters came in later. Good Skarecrow (1052) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 21, 2017
Black pour with tan head.
Toasted malt with vanilla note.
Mild bitterness. Roasted malt, wee bit peaty. Smooth finish.
Not bad. Samtzu (629) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 9, 2017
Tap pour. Pours a deep black with slight view head. Slightly rich chocolate nose with malts. Medium body with sweet milk notes and a sugary malt backbone. explosivedog (1832) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 8, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2017 On handpull at Vultures Lane. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and some milkiness. Flavour is milk. Just milk. Maybe a little water. Really quite unpleasant. Hoponmate (309) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 8, 2016
Smells great looks great in the glass. Just a watery syrupy mess of nothing. Tons of milk no taste no finish.

[8303-20160520] Cask. Roasted oil paint and burnt grains aroma. Black body with a very quick foamy off-white head. Rough roasted burnt grains flavour has a lactic tangy almost boozy barrel wood note. Full body. Not really a fan. (5/2/5/3/11) 2.6

2016-05-20. Black body with a small tan head that fades. Aroma is oddly alcoholic and herbal, which carries over into the flavour. Oddly bitter and very lightly tangy. Smooth average bodied palate, low carbonation. 5/3/5/3/10 On cask at The Brewery, Christchurch, NZ. Luvystypotables (2099) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2016
A subdued aroma of bitter chocolate, with notes of malt and coffee. Pours a dark brown color with a last foamy tan head. Amazing taste of malted milk, chocolate and coffee with a creamy feel and a coffee finish. mtangel (10) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 16, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2015 Black appearance with good tan head. Rich malty and coffee aroma. The flavor is very creamy and immensely drinkable bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2014
Tried off the handpump at the source. Presented well, black body short tan head, choc notes and some coffee on the aroma, smooth taste with good body coffee and choc coming through again.
