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.

fiulijn (14298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2007
Dark brown color. Light aroma, some caramel. Round mouthfeel, strong caramel flavor, well balanced by some chocolate malt, there is even a light smokey touch; the bitterness is a bit low. Quite good.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2007

Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, fruit, hint of floral notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor with light bitter notes. Sweet roasted malty notes that linger in the finish. 18-09-2007

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 (719) - 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.

sinkas (273) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2007
Sampled from bottle at WABA Beer dinner, Applecross, WA A nice surprise, Rich chocolaty aromas and flavours, against a nice malt back bone. really quite good.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Mahogany pour; focus in color leans toward the red end of the spectrum. Medium tan head, slow recession and miniscule lacing. Bready malts and baking chocolate comprise the bulk of a simplistic nose. Also noted are aroma of light earthy hops, lightly toasted grains, watery coffee and caramelized brown sugar. Flavor is lightly bitter and moderately sweet, relatively balanced and quite drinkable. Chocolate and roast nuances balance each other out calmly and constructively. Finishes soft and grainy, very light sweetness and hefty toast lingering for a short while. Mouthfeel is light-medium to medium bodied, smooth and supple. A good representation.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 25, 2006
In the bottle. Pours black with a tan head. This is a fairly good dark lager. Chocolate sweet flavor. Milky and smooth palate. Mild roastedness. The Matilda Bay beers seem to stand out as a bit better than most.
