5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Caramel, almost nutty, rich full flavour, but definitely a session beer. Straight from the tap it is pure heaven in a glass.

Appealing deep malty brown color, light tight head. Light malty aroma followed through in the mouth. Enjoyable malty flavor, somewhat nutty. I’m enjoying it in an Australian summer, would bee equally enjoyable in winter.

Deep amber red with frothy cream coloured head.Hints of whiskey on the nose. Whiskey and burnt caramel on the front of palate creating a pleasantly bitter start leading into stronger malts and well balanced sweetness and long bitter sweet finish. Delicious autumn beer

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Sweet and nice. Aromas of roasted malt, and cola. Flavour is sweet, with light bitterness, and it has good length. Palate is velvety, and medium-bodied. Amber colour, with a frothy long-lasting head.

Have they tweaked this? I tried it a year ago and thought it was pretty dull. Had a bottle the other night though with some indian food and maybe it was the food but man- this beer was alive! really robust, rich and dry.

Full of toasted and roasted malts. Tastes like a home brew shop smells. Mild hoppy bite in the back. Good.

From a bottle. Malty aroma and thick, smooth malt flavours, I liked it way more than I thought I would. Will definitely have this again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a deep reddish brown with a thin glass hugging head and no carbonation. The aroma is rich, fruity and of malt. The flavour is uber malty. It’s not a thick, rich beer, but you really feel as though you could chew the malt. There are some cherry notes on the palate too. This is like no other "red" I’ve ever tasted. It’s packed full of diverse flavours and deserves a better rating IMHO. The malty flavour did disappear fairly soon after it was poured though, so drink it quickly!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a large creamy head which ended up minimal but mostly lasting. Dark red colour sweet malty/toffee aroma. Dark Chocolate flavour with strong copper like aftertaste. Nice beer for a cold night and an open fire.
