3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
murky brownish black color, thin off white head. Mostly a solid collar.
Almond, malt, caramel, chocolate, pear and dark fruits. Nice bold nose for such an ABV that it is.
Taste pretty much the same as the nose.
Thin but coats well and a good long lasting flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 500ml bottle on 8/7/2012. Pours a clear dark red brown with a medium fine head. Has some bready and caramel malt in the aroma, along with some fruit. The flavour is quite intense with dark/stewed fruit, nuts, and a rich maltiness which features caramel, toffee, chocolate, nutty and roasty notes. The body is full and the bitterness firm. This actually comes across bigger than 5.5% and feels like a bit of a winter sipper. Nice stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Deep brown pour with a stable tan head that laces well. Nose of caramel, burnt brown sugar, dried dark fruits and a hint of nuttiness. Lovely smooth malty mouthfeel and taste without being too sweet. Low hop bitterness at the finish. A nice dark ale that knocks spots off Tooheys Old.

Clear reddish dark brown with nice tan head that doesn’t last. Subtle, pleasant malty aroma. Lovely palate, plenty of body, almost oily thick with a nice tingle of carbonation. Taste is rich and complex with malty sweetness and chocolates dark roast malts. Overall a great string dark beer.
