(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, orangey brown with a neat, dense, beige head. Lightly burned malts in the aroma combined with a nutty whiff. Medium-bodied with burned malt accents, a little caramel and a fairly bitter finish. 210208

kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2007
Disappointing beer! Pours a dark ruby brown with an appetising head and that’s about as good as it gets…..unpleasant boiled vegetables on the nose with a sharp metallic twang. Thin palate with a muddied flavour, some hops but non of the malty nuttiness i was hoping for….i tried really hard to like this but it just did nothing for me!

bozoNZ (719) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 19, 2007
Rich brown with ruby red tinges. Disappointing head, just fades & dies. Malty aroma’s but a touch stale perhaps. Biscuits with sweetish malts a bit metallic in the finish and thinnish body. This style isn’t my favourite besides that I don’t find much in this beer to get too excited about.

Stew41 (1728) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2006
Medium rocky head with good thick lacing. Clean dark brown in colour. Faint roasted malts on the nose with a slight metallic note. Note much happening palate wise; tough to pick any primary malt or hop flavours. Quite underwhelming (as it the quality of my notes!)

bluevegie (3051) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2006
Deep ruby red body with a light tan head. Meaty broth aroma. Smooth mouthfeel with some cocoa, a touch of smoke and some light piney hops, light to medium body with touch of yeast as well.

Lunkie (1399) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2006
Grassy hop checmial aroma. Dark brwon red clear colour with good head and lacing. Malt hop chemical flavour. Flat palate.

vanvenlo (1201) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2006
11 Feb 06 - Light sweet roasted malt aroma. Dark brown colour, Ok head and lacing. Smokey malt and nut flavour a bit too simple. A bit thin, with some bitterness and smokey malt finish.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2005
Dark brown with a thick creamy tan head. Malty aroma brown sugar, toffee, nuttiness. Flavour is also well-balanced, chewy biscuit malt, toasted nut, a bit of spiciness and some earthy yeasty flavours. A touch of fruit on the finish.

Dark amber/brown in colour with big creamy head. Roasted biscuit aroma. Weak watery coffe malt flavour. I think too much rain water!!!!
