Nice creamy head, stong malt flavour on the nose.

chinchill (1867) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2014
On tap at the brewery in Greymouth, NZ Excellent clarity in this very dark brown ale. The body is topped by a creamy tan head that is very durable and leaves the glass almost totally coated. Both flavor and aroma are about average for style, if a touch more hoppy than a European version. Dark and medium roasted malts lend a lingering malty aftertaste. No burnt notes. Feel: Medium body with medium carbonation. Smooth. O: solid version of style.

The head is ok, body darkred-black. It smells darkmalty, roasty. The taste is darkmalty, roasty, bit aromatic. Not that interesting but the malttaste is quite nice.

Pouring black with a slightly roasted nose. Some sourness with roasted malt and nuts in the aroma. Not really entertaining, but a decent drinkable beer.

McTapps (4070) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2013
Beer pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with low creamy head and medium body. Aroma of malt and roast. Taste of intense malt, leaves, woods, milk and nuts. Light sour, light smokey-roasty finish. Drinkable but not really nice.

Monteith valt over het algemeen tegen. Ze weten heus wel te brouwen maar is naar mijn idee gebrouwen voor een groot publiek. Alles is erg vlak van smaak. Niet echt craftbeer te noemen.

A rather thin, dark lager-bier. Hints of smoke and coffee, nothing overpowering. Nice enough and worth trying, taste improves as it gets warmer in the glass.

WilleLW (178) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2013
Black colour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and a slight hint of hops. Taste of roasted malt with notes of chocolate and a finishing coffee bitterness. A slight metallic taste in background with some sourness (in a peculiar way). A light body without beeing watery. A good beer but with a slightly odd after-taste that doesn’t fully suit my taste.
