Westkyoto77 (561) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 19, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2015 Bottle. Fizzed up a bit on opening, but gave up beautiful creamy toffee aromas, lots of caramel and a hint of spice. Didn’t turn out as sweet as I’d feared, and fairly well balanced.

ANZUShophunter (60) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2015
From bottle, pours dark amber with little head (perhaps a bit past its prime). Enjoyable rich malts: mollases and a bit of spice. Worth another visit.

LesArgen (258) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2015
The aromas of chocolate and caramel is pleasant, but on tasting this beer is thin and uninteresting when tasted. Disappointing.

Sissio (868) - Orsenigo, ITALY - DEC 24, 2014
Clear dark brown with red highlights, minimal cream head Caramel, toffee, a hint of chocolate and hops bitter metallic ending, watery, some astringency

redknob (36) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2014
Pleasant looking, no real aroma. Sweet at first but thin and doesn’t really do much of note until the peppery, metallic aftertaste.

RafeAU (368) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2014
Shared bottle at plonk. This is a malt driven amber ale with little hop aroma or flavour. Some toast and toffee pleasant malt flavours. Not bad.

Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2014
Toffee malt aroma. Beautiful ruby amber colour with excellent head. Delicious caramel and toffee malts up front lightly hopped with a smooth finish. Medium body and carbonation.

floydian1 (1156) - FNQ, Australia, - JUN 17, 2014
330ml brown bottle. An amber-brown beer with a large foamy tan head. Nose is dominated by the roasty caramel malts with nutty notes and subtle floral hops. Taste is sweet and malty with a medium bitter hop finish. Palate is refined and sessionable with a medium body and light carbonation. Well balanced.

2.1
   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 8/20
mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2014
Pours a brown amber with a clear body. Off white head that slightly laces. Little aroma, some stonefruit sweetness. Roasted malt dominates the palate providing sweetness, but lacking any hop hit. Body is very thin and tastes quite watery and metallic. High level of carbonation, almost like it had been watered down with soda water.

StevieT (962) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2014
Dark amber, almost brown in colour, small white head, earthy malty aroma, well carbonated with mild hops flavours thrown in. Not too bad.
