Mjollnir (415) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2015
330mL bottle. Pours opaque brown/black with a thin persistent tan head which leaves a little lacing. Strong roasted aroma of coffee sweetened with molasses, some chocolate and wood. Mild bitterness, more coffee, chocolate, roast. Full body, bordering on syrupy, fairly soft carbonation, although it does have some bite. A lingering finish of bitter roasted coffee. Did I mention the roast? StevieT (2039) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2015

4pack from dan murphys holland park, pours a lovely black colour, with a thin film of head that goes all the way to the last drop, in my opinion a lovely stout Kurtos (222) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle. pours a solid black.
Aroma. Mocha + Dark chocolate aroma.
Taste.a very slight milky flavour on entry, but mainly dominated by strong espresso flavours with a medium complimenting bitterness.
Overall. quite a good, but i would of liked more flavours then just coffee.

From a 330ml bottle on 19/7/2015. Pours a very dark brown with a small head. Has a modest malty aroma featuring a bit of dark chocolate. Flavour wise, there’s more dark chocolate, with hints of roasted malt, vanilla and a fair dash of soy. Quite full bodied, slightly creamy, with soft carbonation and a moderate bitterness.This is a decent stout, but I’m surprised at the love it’s receiving on here so far, as it seems a bit uninspired. A long way from a 90s beer for mine. Jado (805) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2015
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a solid black with a sloppy brown head. Aromas of raisins, chocolate and burnt caramel. Taste begins with dark fruit flavours before a big roasted coffee and smoke bitterness waltzes in. Chocolate, cherry and more smoky roast at the end. Lingering finish with a lightly bitter dark chocolate aftertaste. A big beer and a good one. Westkyoto77 (640) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 3, 2015
On tap at Creatures Brunswick st. Dark as night with dirty brown head. Lovely nose of dark toffee, cocoa, and coffee. Beautifully rich and balanced. Not super bitter, but not overly sweet either. An absolute winner. Malrider69 (173) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2015
Pours a black colour with a thin tan head. The aroma is of roasted malt, coffee and slightly of hops. The flavour is of coffee with a moderate bitterness that sits nicely on the palate. Return of the Dread is an excellent stout (one of the best to recently be produced in Australia) with complex flavours and well worth purchasing. gam (4078) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2015
