Nice pour and a good head. Smell reminds me of a Berliner Weiss beer. The sourness carried onto the taste which seemed unusual. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Beer Cartel. Dark brown-black, creamy tan head, sweet and roasty aromas, chocolate, ash/smoke, floral/fruity hops, long dry bitterness, medium body, really good.

Bottled 50 cl at Slowbeer, Melbourne. On July 29, 2013.
BB 10/11/13.
Saw the name and the label, decided I HAD to try it, nothing more than to buy and drink, that’s it.
Dark reddish brown to black color, tan head. Malty, sweet, roasted taste. Roasted aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, a bit fizzy, medium high bitterness. Sweet, malty, roasted scent.
Happy I got this one, very nice!

A new world kind of a porter- lots of aromatic hops gives it a fruit/roasted malt flavour. kind of confused but pretty delicious darker session beer

Not much aroma, slightly roasty and malty, but rather non-descript otherwise. Appearance is deep brown with tan head. Taste is nice chocolate, coffee and malty. Palate is kindly bitter and roasty. Pretty nice porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle. Deep dark black colour te the inside of a dungeon. Smallish head with some bitter dark chocolate aromas. Nice smooth flavour with a creamy rich mouthfeel.

Davros (3282) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2012
Pours black with a small head. Nose shows restrained roasted malt along with a faint floral and sweet pear note. Similar flavours; plain roasted malt, floral perfume-like notes followed by a mild bitterness. Needs more roast and less of the floral character. Could use more carbonation.

Bottle, 12C. Very dark brown with a modest tan head that retreats to the rim and disappears after a while. Aroma of treacle, chocolate, pears. Medium bodied, feels progressively heavier as you go. A bit overcarbonated for me. Slightly sweet with some dark sugars as well as roasted flavours, mocha, pears. Dry, slightly astringent finish. Bitterness gradually creeps up along with some peppery spices. Slightly let down by the mouthfeel, but there’s heaps going on with the malt flavours and the balance is good.

davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 21, 2012
On tap at Dejavu. Nice malt-driven beer. Aromas of caramel and milk chocolate, with a hint of coffee. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.
