COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AKA - the satisfier (in the beer sense!), a character filled American style brown ale. When you indulge in a Growler, you will experience complex buiscuity and malt qualities, with hints of dark fruit aroma. The Growler has a rich brown colour with a medium body - satisfy yourself with one of these.

ALLOVATE (2625) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2015
There is cocoa and carob on the nose at first then it opens up to reveal savoury fruit like raisins, muscatels and caramelised orange peel. Looks pretty damn good; radiant cola brown with ruby highlights. Mountainous, audible off-white foam that leaves a trail of messy lace. The palate is rather dry, dusty and malt driven giving off more a Northern Brown sort of flair. Light butter and cocoa amongst some chocolate and woody notes. Minor astringent and phenolic tail end fades off nicely into more malt in thee finish. Body is on the lean side chilled but more rounded at a higher mercury. Carbonation is its real downfall. Too aggressive making it foam and fizz violently on the tongue. Otherwise this is not too shabby a session ale. Would like to know if the batch is fresh!? Tasty. (33cL, no date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

From a bottle. Very gassy (a little too much), pours like a coke, a little bit of coffee on the back, very nice once it settles down.

Jmar33 (203) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle. This one was sitting around for almost 2 years, so it’s a bit unfair of me to rate it properly. However, it is recommended not to drink a 2 year old bottle of this beer.

Muggus69 (1533) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle, Earl’s Juke Joint, Newtown, Sydney Dark brown body, pours a dense off-white foam. Nice nose of nutty, biscuity malts with notes of chocolate & hop citrus. Medium body, nice chewy malt texture, reasonably lively carbonation. Palate delivers plenty of malt; biscuit, toasted nuts, cocoa with hop citrus and woody spice. Good bitterness on a dry finish. Tasty stuff!

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2014
Pours a murky brown with a tan head. Roasty aroma with some caramel and cocoa. Surprisingly mild flavour, mostly of roasted grains, toffee and chocolate. A decent, but not spectacular brown ale.

motelpogo (7239) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 5, 2014
bottle from nirvana liquors, bondi beach. light brown with a bit of murk and a slim head; plenty of caramel in the aroma with generic citric hops; low carbonation; light bitterness, cookie dough. seems a bit subdued for a beer called growler

Niksko (483) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2014 330ml bottle.

Pours dark brown with a finger of tan head.

Nose is brown sugar, caramel. toffee, raisins.

Flavour is pretty muted. Slight smoke and caramel on the mid palate, and a sweet and slightly watery finish with a bit of toast and a hint of citrus and hoppiness.

Medium bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel.

If this tasted as good as it smells it would be a really excellent beer, but sadly it’s somewhat lacking.

Update: I went to the brewery last week and had this on tap. COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. I’m not sure if it was the freshness or if they’ve changed up the recipe, but there was much more hop character in the flavor, and the balance between sweetness and hops was perfect. I also don’t remember it being watery.
