Schooner on tap at Australian hotel. Little discernible nose. Murky red/brown beer with minimal film of cream head. Full-bodied and slightly spritzy. Finish is tangy sweetness with a suggestion of chocolate & coffee. Has a tiny hint of tinny/vegetal hops right at the end. Not great but not bad.

Tap at the Australian Hotel. Unassuming at first, but some nice caramel malts appear in the background, and provide some nice dry bitterness throughout.

Had on tap at the Australian apparently in a íschoonerí it looked good in the glass, lovely dark ruby colour with a slight yeastyness on the nose. The alcohol was quite well hidden by the heavy fruity palate, reminded me of dark raisins, had a slight breadyness to it.
