3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml can. Probably clear, darkest chestnut brown colour with ruby red glimmer and small, frothy, half-way lasting, fairly lacing, beige head. Nuttily malty aroma, a touch of caramel and toffee; "cement
" is a good catchword - notes of oxidation and cement, later again more earthy and nutty, Brazil nut. Taste is nuttily malty, some caramel and toffee; oily texture, viscous and "heavy". Maris (1115) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2015
3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 355ml can on 18/5/2015. Pours a dark brown with a small head. Has a very malty nose featuring toffee, butterscotch and brown sugar. These all also feature in the flavour, along with some dark chocolate, caramel, biscuit, nuts. The initial sweetness is met by a pleasant hop bitterness. The texture is thick and carbonation average. A very good big, malty brown ale.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown and cloudy. Some yeasty bread aroma pops in and out. Cactus like brown malts. Some sage spice character from fermentation. Very lean in body. Some earthy finish on this as well.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from ubrew, London. It pours deep brown with quickly dissipating white head. The nose is sweet, sticky, malt-driven, chocolate, caramel, nut, date and fruit cake. The taste is bitter-sweet, brown bread, caramel, cocoa, chocolate-covered digestive biscuits, booze, earth and dried fruits with a slightly sweet finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A touch sweet and boozy perhaps, but not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a thin tan head on a brown body.
The aroma is chocolate milk, toast and nuts.
The taste is creamy and nutty. There’s an underlying current of citrus though. Interesting.
It’s fine all around.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
CAN. Kole beer pour minimal head.. Coffee, nut, malt & booziness on the nose... Dark roasted malts up front.. rolling into a dark choc & molasses back end.. hides the ABV well..

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12OZ can into a pint glass.
Aroma- has a thick malty aroma
Appearance- Danny near black with a small light brown head.
Taste- more like a porter, really malty and flavorful
Palate- heavy bodied brew with a slick feel has light carbonation.
Overall- I really like this. It’s more of a porter than a brown ale. So what it’s awesome.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown pour with reddish hue and large beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and slightly nutty. Taste of caramel malts, chocolate, almonds, molasses and faint hops on the finish. Full bodied, medium carbonation, nicely balanced, delicious brown ale!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can, Pretty respectable Brown Ale, practically an Imperial Brown for the ABV, but drinks pretty clean and mellow. Smooth, sweet malt finish. Respectable offering.
