Very bitter and hoppy stout. Reasonably rich for a non imperial. Coffee, malt and lingering bitterness craftyrocker (74) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2017 330mL bottle from Boozebud, $5.50, BB 6/Mar/18.
Appearance: Black body. Thick beige head which maintained a full cap till the end. Thick lacing. 5
Aroma: Leather, tobacco, dark malt. Strange, subdued unpleasant. 4
Taste: Tobacco. Not particularly sweet or malty, it is just strangely hollow. High bitterness, unbalanced. Awful. 3
Palate: Moderate carbonation, creamy texture. 4
Overall: Great appearance (visually one of the best beers) and mouthfeel but it tastes and smells awful. Maybe this bottle was off? 5 jmgreenuk (9864) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 6, 2017
Tap at the Napier Hotel, Melbourne. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin off white head and some clingy lace. The aroma is roasty smoky malt. The flavour is liqourice bitter with a dry roasty, liqourice, light dry coffee, light grassy hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. bitterlady (74) - - JUN 6, 2017
On tap at St John Craft Beer in Launceston. I tend towards dark brews in winter and so this was an easy choice. Subtle nose, a little chocolate and leather. Very light on flavour for a Stout, bitter and zingy, a little licorice with a good buzz factor. CurlyJoe (305) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2017
Sweet chocolate malt aroma. Dark black with fizzy , medium off white head. Bitter taste, but still driven by chocolate malt. Hops definitely represented though. Quite a thin texture for a bit taste.

Pours black with minimal head. Aroma of rich chocolate, tobacco, coffee and blackberry. Flavour is robust but mouthfeel is a tad thin. Still a great American stout

Pours black and cream but relatively thin. Coffee and chocolate in the bouquet. Confronying bitterness up front, thin on palate. Not fully redeemed by sweet malty chocolate finish. Dervock (1416) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2016
