Transfer from BA review on 7-16-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a hearty deep brown color with a huge tan head. When held up to the light a reddish hue comes through the glass. The head fades slowly to give a medium level of lacing. Smell – The smell is of chocolate, roasted coffee and some caramel. Mixed with this is a light spicy hop aroma with a somewhat peppery spice. Taste – A semi-sweet milk chocolate flavor meet the tongue. Hints of caramel and some lighter coffee flavors are mix nicely with the chocolate malt flavor. As the taste advances the caramel fades with some very light hoppy flavors that come in. Overall it leaves a lightly spiced chocolate flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The carbonation level is on the lower side with the body slightly above normal. Both suit the chocolate and roast flavors nicely, really allowing them to soak into the tongue. Overall- A rather tasty and enjoyable brown ale. It has a nice slightly sweeter flavor and a good mouthfeel.

Looks identical to a glass of coke. A typical watery and boring brown ale. Darker than most but this doesnt add to its complexity or flavour.

The aroma nutty and chocolatey. He taste isn’t as good as the aroma, it tastes like it’s missing something. Pretty good brown.

Draft. Dark brown. Very light chocolate on the aroma and taste with sweet toffee notes and some bread crust. Sweet rich finish. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from a sampler pack. Pours a dark brown with thin spotty tan head. Aroma of chocolate and caramel. Taste is the same with weird carbonation.

TourDeBeer (116) - your mummas pants, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2014
Caramel and slight chocolate aromas, no big hitters. Small off white head, lasting. Smooth mouth feel, low carbonation. Low sweetness, low bitters at end of taste range. Leaving the mouth at the beginning stages of a dry. I imagine the palate profile will get better with warmth. But I'm ending the review. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

I preface this with the fact that I am not a beer snob, nor will I turn down free beer... normally. However, this beer was just... terrible. The chocolate-toffee taste it claims is laughable. It literally tastes like somebody stirred a tablespoon of brown sugar in a budweiser and rebottled it. A subpar peer compared to other 8 dollar six packs. Won’t drink this ever again, even if it’s free.
