Poured a translucent dark beer with a coppery red tinge with a one- to two-finger light tan foamy head that diminished moderately quickly. Laced OK. Low carbonation. Aroma of sweet molasses (brown sugar), malt and roasted grain. Taste of sweet malt and brown sugar followed by a moderate hops bitterness. Light body (a bit thinner that I was expecting). Long smooth sweet finish. Quite nice.

Served in a snifter. Pours very dark ruby-copper with a thick head, leaving a nice amount of lacing in the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, some spice, caramel, toffee and some nutty notes. Taste is similar to the nose, rich with roasted malts, toffee, caramel and spice. Very balanced with full body. Gorgeous!

Very dark, red tinted with off white head that coats the glass. Earthy nutty aroma. Good carbonation. Very easy drinking well balanced earthy malty flavour with herbal hop bitterness to finish.

FishersFirst (1) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2015 does not count
Light malt sweetness, burned toffee and dark fruits on the nose. Low earthy, herbal hop. Biscuit, burned toffee light choc and mild roast on the palate. Firm bitterness lingers. Medium to full body. Perhaps a bit harshly bitter in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
