Pours dark brown, mocha head. Nose is coffee, molasses, vanilla, plum, raisins. Flavor is more of the same, sweet toffee, lots of raisin and fig, coffee on the finish. Very complex and layered flavor, really delightful. You get a nice transition between the sweetness of the mid palate and the coffee notes on the end. Gorgeous, really really gorgeous. vanvenlo (1861) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2016

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2016 6/8/2016 - draught at Red Hill Brewery - same as comments for bottled version. 11/6/2016 - bottle- Poured an opaque black with a one-finger light tan dense foam head that retained for ages but laced poorly. Carbonation low to moderate. Aroma subtly of chocolate, roasted coffee and syrup/treacle. Taste of sweet brown sugars, roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruits and vanilla with alcohol on the back palate; low bitterness. Medium body but a little thin for the style. Smooth and creamy with a lingering subtly sweet vanilla finish that also has alcohol notes. Nice enough. DougW (1) - - MAY 16, 2016 does not count
Aroma - strong and simple
Taste - 10/10 Full bodied, with slight coffee taste. Beautiful malts. Very creamy (maybe slightly too much) Simple stout flavours, its not trying to be anything else apart from a stout which is refreshing these days. Surprisingly hoppy bitterness to end on.
After taste - Beautiful lingering taste, with that full body malty taste hanging on for a long while.
Sensational with a bit of good quality dark chocolate! kol89 (6) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2016 does not count
Poured into glass. Dark with a thick brown head. Aroma profile is quiet low. Very creamy feel with low carbonation. Well balanced flavours of coffee and chocolate. A very enjoyable Imperial Stout

I’ve never seen a beer so flat, zero head, just pours like a cold black coffee, strong bitter cocoa flavour, very syrupy mouthfeel. Benzai (15486) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle shared by Countbeer @ "Cut weer" tasting. Opaque pitch black color, average sized brown head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, dark malts, light roast, a slight hint of black currant and slightly liquorice. Taste malts, lightly liquorice, a touch of caramel and lightly hops in the background. Average to decent body, average to medium carbonation. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2015

Weer Tasting: Thanks Owen: Chouffe glass:
Black beer with a small brown head.
Aromas of roast, chocolate, some raisin, hint of red fruit and some hints of liquorice.
Flavours of coffee, malt roast, light bay leaf, some dark fruits, bitters, herbal toast.
Aftertaste is fruity, malty, bitter and a light roasty tone.
Low carbo, light watery mouthfeel, medium bodied.
The head is a bit thin but the mouthfeel is soft and creamy. The taste is simple but nice - sweet milk chocolate. Like a milk stout. Very enjoyable if that is what you want from your beer.

Inky black with small tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, dark fruits, oak, roasted meat. The taste has oak, port, dark chocolate, molasses, some alcohol. Too thin in body, however. Not bad but needs more viscosity and more complexity to balance out the dominating sweetness.
