Bottle from Parkhill cellars. Exceptional stout, well balanced flavours. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, and liquorice. Taste is sweet and lightly bitter, with very long length. Palate is velvety, with a medium-to-full body. Black, with an off-white head. mkel07 (6145) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2015

On tap at Archive. Poured black as midnight with a good tan head. Great aromas of burnt toffee and roasted malt with some smoke coming in late. Good solid body with a flavour to match and it carried the 7.4% ABV well. Another winner from Little Creatures.
Perhaps the best of the Little Creatures limited releases in the past couple years. An outstanding stout that is very drinkable. Even better as it warms in a big brandy glass. StevieT (2015) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2015
From a bottle. Pours thick and dark with a tan head, tastes like liquid dark chocolate, amazing. Love it Hop_Hedonist (607) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2015
Tap - Solid effort - plenty of earthy hops - full bodied roast malt with the aforementioned vanilla and licorice notes but no chocolate - seems in the flavour mould of Guiness but stratospherically better - would have liked a head on it, more choc malt and a tiny touch more carbonation but still much enjoyed.

A beautiful beer that entices with it’s tan, lacey head before spilling around the mouth with coffee and smokey tastes. Not too much CO2 to detract from the oily smoothness. Goes superbly with mature cheddar. RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 4, 2015
On tap at transit bar, Canberra. Rich pitch black with brown head. Rich chocolate character is most prominent to me, subtle roastiness, medium body, subtle sweetness well balanced by moderate bitterness. terrific Aussie foreign export stout. bmeup (679) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2015
From Tugun Cellars. Very dark and falling head to thin layer. Roasted malt, rich chocolate, spice and no coffee for me. The fuggles are a perfect match for this most enjoyable Stout, smooth yet has a great bitterness that irons out and covers a decent ABV, nice. Dervock (1379) - 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. Pyobon (1418) - 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%
