3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coffee/chocolate/roasty flavours abound amongst the bitterness. Interesting beer really... I think it has alot of dry stout characteristics instead of english strong ale ones.

Has a bit of body, but the watery characteristics are there in the finish, a bit of roastiness, but as motelpogo says, not enough. Hints of coffee, caramel, chocolate, but not well noticed.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2007 on tap at the lord nelson. quite a solid strong ale, decent aroma with a touch of stone fruit, light dry chocolate character and some faint grassy bitterness. quite drinkable for an aussie beer of its strength
