3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle - pours brown, gushing with a head that is inches thick and stays on for a long time. Had to wait until it was warmed up to room tempretature to smell something and for the head to disappear. After that, the aroma is very elegant: leather, honey, eoasted malt, caramel. Light body with overwhelming carbonation, taste of salted caramel, plums, raisins.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a nice deep brown with a reddish tinge near the side of the glass. Smallish tan coloured head that hangs around till the end. Good lacing. Good looking beer. Aromas are quite sweet with plenty of toffee and dark caramel. A little roasted malt and a huge floral hit from the hops. Really nice aromas. Flavours are equally as good with heaps of toffee up front with some bitterness at the finish thanks to the hops and the toasted malt. Just a touch of sourness balances the whole thing out. Mouthfeel is just a little thin but still a bloody great beer all the same, Really enjoyed this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque deep chestnut, with a large off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Dark chocolate, brown bread and very light hops make up the aroma. Floral and spice hops up front lead into a blend of milk chocolate and latte. Bitter roasted malt comes in at the finish. This is a reasonable, if not wondrous brown ale. I’m not sure my bottle was all that fresh, but nevertheless it was not all that impressive.

This one taste quite similar to a stout. It has a dark pour with a large head. The aroma and the flavor are both dominated by a roasted coffee smell and taste. A slight sweetness also present.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 Slight gusher of bottle and I think this wasn’t as good as it usually is?? Slight aroma of malt and caramel nice dark brown pour with huge head. Fan of the taste (cabonation was off) malty sweet balanced with caramel that is at end and slight hops in middle. Interesting brew
