Aroma of sweet cherry dragged through molasses. Definitely sweet, but also quite earthy and even minerally. Caramel and bark, loads of bock-y sugars. Great feel in the mouth - veers close to too sticky, but thankfully doesn’t quite get there. Such an interesting beer style...

Bottled. Dark foggy brown served in its correct glass with a large frothy, speckled brown head. Sweet, malty aroma. Flavour was sweet and the palate dense.

A very dark brown coloured beer with a nice white long lasting head. There is little aroma except an underlying musty roastiness. The taste is roasty, toasty and smoky and is enjoyable. Not a patch on Avenitus though.

Pours a very dark red/brown with a tall tan head. Very sweet malty aroma with caramel and toffee. Taste starts very sweet with a nice malty smoothness, lots of caramel taste in the malt with a nice spice near the end. Cheap brew for 7.3 percent.

500 mL bottle: dark plum, alcohol/toffish aroma. Thin palate, but a decent malt bill. I was expecting far more complexity, but the slight roasted flavours and strong alcohol were at least interesting.

A decent, frothy, Mocha colored head forms over this murky brown beer when it is poured. The aroma is malty caramel with some chocolate. Sweet malt flavor with a bit of alcohol. Nice spicy wheat bite in the finish.
