BB 26 DEC 15. Poured an opaque black colour with a tan/dark brown foamy head that retained OK and laced OK. Aroma with low to moderate roasted grains, subtly of malt, a hint of vanilla and a hint of dark chocolate. Taste sweet with the roasted grain giving a slight nice bitterness; alcohol well hidden. Medium body. Very smooth with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a very subtle bitterness on the finish. Nice. Dazz3 (1798) - Hallsberg, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2011
Sampled at omhpers tasting. Pours black with no real head. Smells smoky and malty. Tastes malty, a little smoky but dies out fast.

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. fletchfighters (1546) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2012
A-- Poured a dark ruby cola color and settled black. No light penetrating this. half finger of dark mocha colored head that went from film to a few brown gurgles in less than a minute. Much better staying power on swirling as got a finger of head but still died quickly. Spotty lacing left while drinking and a slight bit of oily residue.
S-- Sweet dairy milk Carmel chocolate with coffee to back it up. Lots of malt sweetness to this but the smell is quite soft and have to really swirl the glass to bring it out.
T-- Bitter, dark and rich baking chocolate mixed with a bit of Belgian sweet chocolate. Good contrast to the nose and much more pronounced.
M-- At times oily, sweet, and sticky. Big gap in the middle of the palate leaves a big whole but rounded out with sweet chocolate coffee acidity to finish. Medium body and lower medium carbonation.
O-- I think everybody will say this is the best single batch beer by LC to date. Yea, pretty much is. Not bad at all. floydian1 (1477) - FNQ, Australia, - SEP 7, 2011
Bottle. An almost jet black body with a decent beige head of good duration and lacing. All the classic aromas of a good stout are there (roasted dark malts, coffee, dark chocolate, a hint of liquorice). Taste is mildly sweet with an outstanding hop bitterness to the finish. Palate is smooth and medium bodied with a lowish carbonation. The ABV is well hidden. A fine effort. Pyobon (1448) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2015
(Bottle) Very dark with small tan head. Nice aroma - coffee and chocolate with liquorice and spice hints. Fantastic palate - full bodied, but not sticky, with smooth and bright carbonation. Great taste - rich and smooth, dark malts but little sweetness, nice hop bitterness for balance, some toasty notes. Excellent beer - too hard to put down, which could be dangerous for 7.4% Dervock (1404) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2015
Bottle- pours black with a rocky mocha head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and burnt sugar. Taste is coffe and chocolate up from, then a dry bitter lingering finish. Creamy palate with a nice mouthfeel.
