Tried from a bottle at Vic on the Park during the Sydney Craft Beer Week opening party.
From the start, this looks the part: deep, black and dark, almost opaque. Solid, slightly frothy head formed of large brown bubbles. There's some decent, but not intense weight behind it. Minimal carbonation, but what forms is fine. Looks good.
Nose is a little milder than it could be, but there's definitely pleasant notes behind it. Toasty vanilla, slight mild roastiness and a hint of coconut. Some chocolate comes through with a cocoa character dominant—it's dark rather than rich and sweet. Pleasant, but a bit milder than it could have been.
Taste is smoother, with the vanilla coming through more strongly, creating a creamy roast character and a hint of fruit. Cherry chocolate comes through on the finish, dark and broad with pip and stem fruit characters on the back, and a slight reminiscence of dried apricot. It's really nice and very interesting and flavoursome.
Feel is smooth and pleasant, which helps integrated the flavours. Lovely.
Yep, this is grand stuff. The fruitiness that comes out above the dark roasted basis is very fine indeed, and creates a lovely strange interest out of the brew. Great beer.

Pours black with a large, lasting dark tan head.
Nose shows cocoa, roasted barley, coffee and some spicy noble hops.
Flavours include cocoa, ash, roasted barley, sweet malt, liquorice. Nice bittersweet finish.
Carbonation could be higher.
Serving type: on-tap
