Very australian smell, Im guessing its the POR. A nice sweet chocolate with a definant roastiness. Picking up a but of molasses aswell. A very unique palate, soft, round and sweet

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light brown color with a small head and lots of bubbles. Malty, kind of a chocolaty aroma with a sharp woody undertone. Heavy body. Sweet chocolate taste, like a stout, but not dry. Fit an finish are a little rough.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear amber with a large creamy off white head that lasts awhile leaving behind decent lacing on the glass. The aroma is a caramel malt with chocolate and nuts. Medium mouthfeel and a bit watery on the palate with a roasted malt taste and caramel and chocolate. Easy to drink, a good specialty grain from AIB.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown/red color, thin tan head that disappars quickly. Commercial descrition fairly true, carmel more evident that chocolate. Warm on the togue at the finish (spice?, alcohol?) I did not know what to expect with this beer, but what ever Wattle seed is, I do not know that I can detect it in this brew. Still, not bad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at woody’s. Pours a clear light brown with amber highlights and fair light tan head. Not so good at first try, but after this aired out a bit, and is actually quite quaffable. Nose is simple caramel malt. Flavors of burnt malt, toffee, mocha. Ever so slightly metallic and a bit ’old’ tasting. Not a bad brew actually, I’d like to try it fresh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Pours dark amber with a small head. A distinct nutty, caramel aroma is evident. The flavour is nuts, caramel and syrup. Sweet mouthfeel and a malty finish. A strangely balanced beer.
