Clear dark brown to black beer, creamy irregular beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: mocha, coffee, grains, roasted malts, little fruity. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: dark chocolate, some caramel, bit sweet, mocha, bit of coffee, little sour, liquorice, red berries. Aftertaste: soft bitterness, coffee, dark chocolate, subtle sweetness, bitter hops, some blueberries, cocoa powder. Man, this is an amazing beer! Way too expensive, I’ll give you that, but a very nice beer!
Bottled, thanks baggio! Black, dark brown head. Rich aroma of coffee, pear and tar. Mid sweet with full body and rounded mouthfeel. Intensely flavourful with dark chocolate, tar and coffee. Warming finish. nice imperial stout with a full array of flavours without getting oversized. Oakes (18828) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
Dark brown, has a fudgey version of an impy nose - like a suped up version of reg stout. Fudgey, a little rich malt sting, a mellow impy. Hirsty (26) - Perth, SCOTLAND - OCT 20, 2013
Aroma - roasty, coffee, chocolate, bread, earthy, leather, alcohol, butterscotch, licorice, raisin, vanilla, woody
Appearance - black, slightest redness at the edges, brown foam, head doesn’t last
Taste - heavy cloying sweetness, very bitter, umami
Palate - full body, oily feel, average carbonation, abrupt/sharp finish
Overall - Not a bad Imperial Stout but this was brewed earlier this year and is still rather sharp. It could have done with a few more months in the bottle. Ryanmalkmus (37) - Fitzroy, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2013
This may have been the best beer I ever did taste... Need to take notes at the time of drinking

Tap at The Local Taphouse Sydney - Thoroughly impressed - not at all heavy but not thin - kinda toned down Rogue Double Choc Stout (which ain’t no bad thing) - alcohol invisible - bit of mocha - if this beer was a girl, she’d be a beautiful shy Goth girl. eczematic (1326) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2013
a magnificent imperial stout in every way, from luscious thick body to creamy dark brown head, deep burnt bitterness and a very classy marsala-tiramisu sort of liqueuryness in aroma and finish. my only caveat is the contribution of the wild yeast - i was hoping for more complex esters and some sourness too but got mainly a faint vegetably note (the way some lambics do) ok perhaps some cherry. gnoff (10985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle 330 ml at Pumphouse, Sydney, on July 11, 2013.BB 21.06.14.StevieT (2039) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2013
Large hiss when opened, builds up a huge head. The excessive head build up gets boring fast. Initially at least seems to have a very high co2 level. Black color, brown head after it settles to a nice creamy top with loads of lacing. Sweet, hoppy, some wet tobacco scent. Sweet, bitter, dry cocoa taste. Some alcohol aftertaste, also bitter chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Not much aroma but a strong coffee/mocha taste. Pours jet black with a thin tan head. I could drink quite a lot of these. Dredd (972) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2013
Wow, what a beer. Black as the ace of spades with a rich brown head like boiling toffee. Aroma is a mix of chocolate and plum pudding. Flavour is more of the same, mouthfeel is a slightly oily feel with a mesh of dark chocolate, coffee hints of vegemite and a long bitter finish with some vegetable flavours right at the end. Very little hint of the 10% abv.
