omhper (19967) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy chestnut brown. Roasty malt aroma. A dryish beer dominated by roasty malt, creates strong coffeelike flavours. A careful hop rate lets the malt flavours dominate and results in low bitterness.

JoeMcPhee (8565) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2005
Very dark brown beer with a thick tan head. Sweet malty beer with a bit of spicy hop aroma. Flavour is a bit chewy, but not all that interesting. Slightly spicy, a bit herbaceous and vegetal. A touch of chicory and faint fruit. Doesn’t really come together.

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

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2002
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.
