500 ml bottle pours dark brown with tan head. Good lacing. Aroma is earthy and slightly smokey and sweet. Full bodied. Taste is smokey and bitter, slightly more acidic than what I like. As it warmed up it kinda tasted like meat funnily enough.

The best of a group of a sample palette at the brewery in New Zealand. A very smooth and ’creamy’ dark style brew. Highly recommended to try if you try any.
