More often than not, most high alcoholic beers possess astringent spirity flavours, detracting from the other aspects of the beer. The reverse is true for the Raging Bull. At 7.1% alc./vol., the Bull begins with the intense malty flavours ranging from the crystal flavour and all its diversity to the coffee flavours of the roasted barley. A slight bitterness is apparent from the Pride of Ringwood hops but the main essence remains with the intense warming body structure. The Bull finishes with a resounding sweetness which, like chocolate, begs for another mouthful.

Looks like a coke without the bubbles in the glass. Very much coffee on the nose. Taste of caramel, toffee. Even a touch of blueberry. Hops come through the longer the ale out of the bottle. Clean finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

When poured, the Bootleg - Raging Bull immediately announces its intent. A rich loamy head accompanies a dark nectar of a beer, with an immediate scent of coffee and fruits assaulting the senses. On first taste, the rich coffee is apparent, but surprisingly the 7.1% isn't. The lingering sweetness of the underlying dark fruits tempts the palate for just another sip. Definitely work a taste.

Bottle @ home. Pours a deep reddish brown / black appearance with a dark brown head. Some burnt sugar, dark grapes, plums, dark chocolate, and light coffee in the nose. A bit on the sweet side. Kind of gooey mouth feel. A touch medicinal. Thick brown sugar. Too sweet and the booze is a little high.

330mL bottle. Pours deep dark marhogarny with a lasting mocha head. Big burnt molasses aroma with a slight spicy hint. Light on the bitterness, bold sweet toffee/dark chocolate flavour with ashy notes.

Bottle from mane liquor. Deep copper pour with a tanned head. Nose is smells quite sweet lots of toffee, caramel, malts and hops. Taste has a lot more sweetness about it. Lots of toffee and caramel malts. Sharp bitterness. Sweetness hides the booze. Not amazing but pretty decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had on tap at the brewery. A very nice dark beer. Lovely malt aromas and flavours with a slight hit of alcohol.
