Hoser (372) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - APR 4, 2008
Page 312 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and thank you James. This is a decent dunkle and definitely better the oxidized Celebrator I am drinking while rating this beer. This beer is a dark, malty beer with roasted barley overtones and a great mf. Only 159 of MJ’s 500 Classic Brews to go.

Muggus69 (2142) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2008
345ml bottle. Roasted malt nose, burnt wood and bitter chocolate, a touch of vinous fruit. Dark amber body with offwhite head and lace. Medium carbonation and body, good dry bitterness throughout. Solid dark chocolate flavours throughout, some nutty/toffee malt flavours sweeten the palate, finishes dry and reasonably bitter. Probably not ideally to style, but quite nice, more like a wee stout.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2007
Bottle (345ml). Poured a opaque with ruby highlights with an average size light brown head, which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of dark chocolate and mild burnt malts with some raisins at the back. Taste was dominated by espresso coffee with some burnt malts. Medium bodied with a creamy yet dry mouthfeel, average finish.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 16, 2007
Tasted 16/09/2007. 345ml bottle leftover from BrewNZ. Deep chestnut, bright, light tan head. Clean aroma of caramel and sweetened espresso. Clean again in the mouth, with a one dimensional caramel flavour and a light bitterness. Overly carbonated. Well made but pretty boring.

bozoNZ (758) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 6, 2007
345ml bottle. Dark reddish hues. Small head but faeds and looks like a glass of coke on settling. Rich deep dark malt aromas - beautiful stuff. Caramel and dark malts to the fore in a decent mouthfeel that includes dark chocolate notes. A bit tangy on the carbonation side of things but quite decent.
