Nice brown head. Smell: lemon peel, coffee beans. Taste: same. Nicely balanced, smooth but kicking. Somewhere between Sierra Nevada Stout and BrewDog Libertine. Would have it again.

Pours black with a small head.
Nose shows chocolate, roasted barley, nutty and toasty malt, oatmeal and a very faint liquorice note. Very nice, very complex.
Equally rich flavours, with more cocoa, burnt toast, roasted barley and soft coffee.
Carbonation seems very low, body feels a little watery.

330ml brown bottle purchased for me by my brother-in-law from Oak Barrel in Sydney.

Pours a murky brown-black, certainly not opaque, and certainly not black. Head forms a fairly solid and fine-bubbled crest of beige, but settles out to a fine ring with some pancake bubbling across the top. Body looks a bit thin. Overall though, it looks fairly decent.

Nose is pleasant. Chocolate sweetness caresses a mild roast note with lingering overtones of berries and something a little floral. It's quite fragrant, but with depth and with a sweetness and roast to drag it back firmly into stout territory. It's very nice indeed.

Taste is back into more familiar territory, but still with plenty of pleasant things to drive it. Solid mid-level malts give chocolate and sweetness, while the body remains pleasantly dry, leaving the roast to come out more fully in the finish. The chocolate character stays around until the end, leaving the aftertaste smoother than it could have otherwise been. Feel is, as I said, rather light in the body, but it has a pleasant slickness to it, especially on the back.

Overall, I like it a fair bit. There's a little complexity lacking in the palate, but it's still extremely solid, and with good structure. The aroma is really wonderful. It's certainly something I'd drink again.

330ml bottle: best before Jan 2013, poured into a Gordon 'Finest Gold' thistle shaped glass on 10 Oct 2012 @ home.

Lovely dark looking brew: hints of ruby red tints when held up to a strong light souce. The head was a deep, rich tan coloured affair which stayed and produced some heavy lacing.

Chocolate malts fill the nose, nicely roasted but not burnt: coffee esters reach out as the beer warms in its new surroundings of my thistle glass.

The taste mirrors the aromas: dark chocolate first and foremost with coffee arriving later: there is also a semi-bitter hop undertone within the flavours, this takes away the smoothness and richness I anticipated would be in the mouthfeel.

Dry finish to every sip and although not unpleasant it took some of my pleasure overall.
