3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet caramel aroma. Ruby coloured with short lived tan head and a bit too much carbonation. Very thick. Sweetish malt & yeast flavour. Minor roasted bitterness. Slightly more flavour than Moretti La Rossa but twice as expensive.

I was a bit disappointed. A bit too sweet and dull taste. Quite one-sided too.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted 09/11/2005. 500ml bottle from Liquorland, Miramar.
Deep ruby with an oily, light tan, head that slowly vanishes. Big caramel nose that also comes through in the flavour, with dried fruits (both prunes and raisins) and a subtle woodiness. This beer hint’s of a good quality rum, with coke - in a good way. Very seet in the middle. Softly carbonated and medium bodied. Slightly oily mouthfeel and dry finish suggest that there are more hops and roast malt than the nose or flavour suggest. Not everday drinking but not bad.

Very subtle aroma. Dark brush and mildly fizzy. Thick caramel saying with a sticky throaty experience. Quite gorgeous.

Bottled. Dark brownn in colour, minor brown head. The aroma is raisin like with malt. The flavour has plums and malt in it, quite fruity and sweet. There is a sweet aftertaste as well.

Bottled: pours with a dark brown hue and a nice thick and frothy head, malts are dominant but there are some interesting fruit notes together with smoked and woody tones, full bodied, very enjoyable.

Kick Ass! Definately one of Marstons finest. Deep dark colour with a great taste and enjoyable fruity notes. Its all a matter of taste really as I think the lack of masses hoppy bitterness is definately a plus. Great beer.
