3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Freshly poured, the aroma is strong and full of chocolate and coffee. Unfortunately, with the tight head and flat body that comes from using a sparkler, the aromas are soon lost. Serving at subzero temps doesn’t help with the flavour release either.
First few sips are really pleasant giving a great first impression but my palate soon got used to the full malt character and started to concentrate on the underlying diacetyl character. Rancid butter really isn’t that appealing to me so it really slowed progress towards the end of the pint. I really liked this one at the start but it got less and less impressive the more I drank.
On tap at The Lord Nelson Brewery. Fantastic, rich roasted flavours, delicious stuff. jonas (7573) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2015

Black coloured beer with a off-white head. Aroma of malts, some coffee and hints of chocolate. Taste of coffee-bitterness, weak hints of chocolate and some roasted malts. Unfortunately with a somewhat watery body, otherwise it is pretty good. Not too interesting. jdpeebs (686) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2012
Had on tap at the brewery. Rich creamy with a smooth roasted finish. A good porter.
