COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full of rich complex malt flavours. Using a broad mix of chocolate and crystal malts, the Cavalier Brown delivers an initial burst of caramel sweetness, followed by a dry, crisp roasted note. The perfect mix of chocolate and toasty caramel flavours. With added complexity aromas from classic American hops add subtle citrus notes that will reveal something new in every sip.

mkel07 (3680) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2012
330ml bottle. Very highly carbonated as there is a big whoosh when you pop the cap and the glass fills with heaps of loosely condensed brown foam that takes a while to a settle. The beer itself is a dark brown colour and looks solid. Aromas of coffee beans and chocolate. Lively in the mouth with lots of chocolate in the flavour, very tasty.

maneliquor (3263) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours chestnut brown with a small, firm off white head. Nose is loaded with chocolate malts and light nutty under tones. Slightly sweet and biscuity in the taste but the chocolate shines in this. Slightly ashy on the finish. Seems to be half way between a brown and a porter. Nice beer

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2014
On tap at Harts Pub, muddy dark brown looking body, touch of coffee on the nose then some vanilla, choc notes in the taste with roasted bitterness, smooth and easy drinking just probably let warm up a tad but didn’t have a chance.

hawthorne00 (2544) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2011
Bottle, 9C. Lovely clear mahogany with a light beige head that laces well. Aroma of toffee, nuts, raisins, a little chocolate, grass. Velvety mouthfeel. Taste is rich and sweet at first with toffee and butterscotch, raisins, dates. Bitterness creeps up and balances nicely - some roasted, some pine and grass. The somewhat buttery English style malts married with American hops might bother some, but worked fine for me. Pine really creeps up at the end. Tasty.

Davros (2027) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2011
Pours black with ruby highlights and a large, lasting head. Nose shows chocolate, roasted malt, nutty notes and, later on, some coffee. Pretty decent. Similar flavours really; cocoa, coffee, roasted malt. Could use more sweetness/less roasty coffee. Carbonation is pretty much spot-on, however it could use a lighter body.

davidm (1943) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 16, 2011
On tap at Atticus Finch. Nice malt-driven beer. Aromas of caramel, liquorice, and cola. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, a hint of sourness, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.

Jimthechap (1788) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 2, 2012
Colour is ruby-brown and clear with a good latte coloured head. Aromas are forthcoming and are of freshly ground coffee, cocoa and chocolate. It is cool in the mouth and has an earthy cocoa and carob flavour (and I have to say, I hate carob, but will not allow this to colour my judgment). It is strongly flavoured and definitely not your traditional brown ale. It hasn’t got the soft, unctuous nuttiness of a traditional dog. The finish is of enduring fizzy mouthfeel and that same chocolate and carob. Bugger.
