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.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2015 The bottle describes it as "the perfect mix of chocolate and toasty caramel flavours" which is dead on. It pours very dark with an immaculate head, creamy, not too sweet, bitter finish. Re-rating, really strong roast aroma and flavour, one of the best heads I’ve seen.

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.

This beer spreads out over my tongue like a big malted chocolate pillow, with loads of nutty goodness and a slightly metallic finish. The head is gorgeous, the length good and it smells good too.

Looks a picture when poured on tap at beer de luxe. Lovely body supported soft roast and delicious chocolate. Warming in the glass as it is now, the malt takes on greater complexity. A nicely wrought beer and great to see brown ales making a come back.

A slight bitter taste, pretty easy going for a brown. Quite tasty.

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.

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.

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.
