From a bottle. Dark with a strong roasted coffee aroma, rich flavours of chocolate and roasted malt. I was surprised by this, I expected less.

Nice beer! Poured at a good temperature with a smallish, tan head that was quick to settle and no lace. Color is a clear brown tinted ruby. Aroma is a nice blend of malt, roast, toffee, cocoa, bit of smoke, maybe hint of anise. Flavor’s like nose, tang, malt, in front, then sweet, wit roast and smoke, cocoa, toffee, caramel. Body/carbonation good. Finish is like flavor, average length, very drinkable - have to go to the hotel bar to get more or maybe nearby bottleshop if I’m lucky.

Draught as part of a tasting paddle at Archive Beer Boutique and Bistro, Brisbane, on July 19, 2013.
Clear, very dark reddish brown, close to black color, tan head. Roasted, sweet, grainy, coffee taste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness that finishes dry. Sweet, malty, roasted scent.

actually a really tasty brew. Choc-malt on the nose, pour is brown and dull thanks to macro production i guess. flavours are long and dry roasty malt. not real dark but nice n toasty. good palate length too. CUB’s best beer probably

Munich dark lager style. Quite a light beer flavour wise but not too bad. It’s in the 1000 beers to drink before you die book, but I’m not sure why...

Bottle from Mane Liquour. Aromas of chocolatey malts and maybe some light coffee. Taste is roasted coffee, chocolate and caramel malts. Actually not too bad.

Coffee flavour prominant, bit watery and thin for my taste then again it is a lager. Not a bad beer but would probably be better on a warm day when a stout or the like would be just a bit to heavy.

Bottle- a good version of a Munich style dark lager. Great malt flavour from start to finish. Very enjoyable beer.

Bottle. My sister Anne brought back from her trip down under and I’ve not had this one while there. Pours a light head that leaves in a hurry and color is clear copper. Sweet malty nose, but not much sweetness in the actual beer. It is a lager, pure and not as simple, but a bit reminiscent of a Yuengling Lager here in PA, however a bit more complex. This is a thin beer with decent flavor. Not sure that it was worth carting home, but I could drink these in any weather at any time. Not bad at all.
