2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cL bottle. Now brewed by Barons Brewing. Something of a roasted caramel aroma. Dark amber color with a disappearing white head. Medium bodied. Lightly carbonated. Definitely caramel, if not dark malty, sweet. Some very different herb/veg flavor, followed by a slight chocolate burst. After that it is a relatively dry finish that has light veg and light hop. There is a spice in the mouth as well. You don’t find this every day. Sort of a nice way to end the evening.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Mostly clear, orange ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Decent retention. Light molasses, dates, big-time figs and other dark, menacing things in the nose. The flavor is of dark fruits and light sorghum molasses with an unidentified spice (probably wattle seed). Sweet and chewy with moderate acidity and mild bitterness. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Tangy, dark fruit, abrasive finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at HDG. Brown coloured beer with a sweet malty aroma. Light caramelly backing notes. Toasted malt, brown sugar and a touch of maple sweetness. Nice caramelly maltiness. Fairly sweet with a bit of herbal bitterness. Malts seem decocted and have a vaguely dunkel-ish quality to them that is tough to describe. Nutty finish. Decent brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fizzy, off-white head with a clear amber colored body. Aromas of sweet malts and some soy sauce. Taste of sweet barely that is easy to sip. A bit biscuity. I don’t know what a wattle seed is or tastes like, but this beer reminds me of Fat Tire. Fizzy mouth with the viscosity of water.
