2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Burleigh Brewing, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out bitter English hops upfront, with a thin biscuity malt backbone. Flavour is dry, with astringent English hops and metallic notes. Not very pleasant nor easy drinking.

Bottle 0,33l. Pours clear amber colour with a sparse and short-lived head. Toasty and malty aroma, a little grass and wood, and a hint of metal. Same for taste with hints of chocolate and malts. Mild sweetness, low bitterness. Light-Medium body, soft carbonation, fairly short finish.

330ml bottle. Good beer. Mild bitterness giving a crispness to the finish. Happy to take to a BBQ. Clever name too (apparently it is his Wife’s bitter recipe and she named it).

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2015 Curious aroma and taste that started out as musty and grew to a stale smoke. Matched well with the toasted grain. Some dried fruit taste present, but overwhelmed by the toffee and toast. Oddly easy to drink for its harsher flavours.

Pours a clear reddish brown copper with little to no head. Aroma is very much malt with trace hints of dark stone fruits, a little bread. Flavour is up front malt with subtle hints of raisins. A dry finish with hint of coffee bitterness.

330ml into pint glass. Malty liquorice chocolate nose. Deep amber with creamy white head. Quite fizzy for a bitter. Beautiful unusual hop character, creamy, bitter, liquorice again. Really nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to glass at Jak and Hill, Brisbane. Dark copper brown, tiny head. Smells of malt, brown bread and boot polish. Medium body, sedate carbonation. Had a kind of astringent hop finish, which I rather liked once I got used to. Not hugely bitter, but a nice version of one.

Poured from Stubby... Ar: caramel & chocolate dominate with roasty notes not much in the way of hops / Ap: Deep copper and pretty clear, minimal off white head / T: Quite malty sweet with lingering bitter finish / P: Softly carbonated, light body, bitter finish / O: Interesting beer, terrific name encouraged the purchase (clever marketing right?), but overall a tad disappointing, not the worst by any means but wouldnt be rushing to get more
