Rosslew (194) - - MAR 22, 2014
From the Lord Nelson taps. Pours black. Great aroma of coffee, burnt toast. Bit of dried fruit. Wonderful on palate. Sense of rum on the tongue. Pleasant finish without bitterness. Not quite a stout but quality beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

M_Sack (365) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2014
Bottle. Clear copper/brown. Frothy light brown head that sticks attractively to the glass. Quite complex aromas as the beer progresses through various temperatures of toasty caramel, cola, chocolate, rum and grandmas fruitcake. Cola and rum flavours at the front of the palate lead into chocolate and coffee, with a long, bitter, toasted finish. The whole beer is let down by over carbonation.

Amber, slightly hazy and the aroma is a bit caramelly with a hint if bubblegum. Med caramel, sweet, with a little bit of earthiness.
