Can. Clear dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is smooth with mild fine carbonation. Good brown malts, some cream and a little dry coffee. Whisper of paint, almost like it was barrel age induced. Dry and slight spicy finish. Tasty enough.

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 (1153) - 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.
