On tap at Biero. Full marks, I absolutely love the slightly salty taste. Aromas of coffe, butter, chocolate, mussels, with hints of alcohol. Taste has a sweet start, with salty notes, and bitterness taking over for a very long finish. Palate is velvety, and full bodied. Black, with a frothy off-white head. stdc (1) - - MAY 4, 2015 does not count
Complex beer whilst being balanced. Hides the alcohol content well. Matches well with bbq red or smoked meats or chocolate

The tasting notes are spot on. Aromas of strong dark chocolate, a little fruitiness from the hops and yeast and some rumminess from the alcohol. The flavour is an intense hit of mocha – bitter dark chocolate bordering on coffee. Some malt sweetness but an aggressive hop bitterness and roast grain bite to balance. And then there’s the mouthfeel Hop_Hedonist (598) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2013
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.

This may have been the best beer I ever did taste... Need to take notes at the time of drinking

It’s Black. It has rich dark chocolate and coffee roasted malt, some sweetness and dry grain thats matched perfectly by the hop bitterness, some alcohol presence from the 10% stated on the somewhat ordinary label. Dont need a flash label as this beer does its own talking. Purchased a case 14.10.10 and most will go to cellar for a year or so [maybe]. Sensational RIS get some. mkel07 (5978) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours as black as coal and just as thick. Great dense coffee coloured head and big rich chocolate aroma with vanilla and aniseed. Thick in the mouth and oh so good. This is all beer and more. Scotchy (32) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2016
This beer has everything, nice head, thick malty mouthfeel, and a subtle hop balance. Rich and creamy. Truly outstanding. BrewBandit56 (17) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2012
330ml bottle. Mane liquor. Everything that I would ever want in an imperial stout! Nothing I write is going to do it justice, if ur a self confessed beer geek give it a run and you won’t be disappointed!! kraddel (8130) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2012
