COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark ale pays homage to the American Brown Ale style, presenting dark with a deep sherry-red hue. The palate has caramel and chocolate and a lightly roasted finish. Hop bitterness and aromatic character are balanced and pleasantly textured.

Nice and very drinkable. It was refreshing to find a nice dark ale on tap after having light lagers for a week in Melbourne.

Dervock (501) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle - Pours deep deep ruby with an off white head. Roasty toasty malt, a touch of leather and perhaps a hint of cherries. Very smooth, really well balanced, slight sweetness upfront then a gradual dry roast malt bitterness with a hoppy note in there too. Only thing against it is it might be a bit thin, but still very very drinkable.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2014
Pours a deep brown colour, with a nice big head that stays quite a while. Lot of roasted malts in the aroma, togwther with dark chocolate and light touches of toffee. Flavour is spruce, coffee, light smokey touches and a earthy feel. A tad watery mouthfeel, soft carbonation and a rather light body. An okey beer, minus on the palate.

ALLOVATE (2436) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2013
Ruby hued cola brown in colour, shimmering in the lights. Low, wafer thin off-white pad persists. Smoky, roasted grain, timber and dusty, barnyard notes are prominent on the nose, as some burnt coffee beans and a hint of nettles. All the hallmarks of a classic Schwarzbier on display here. Rich, burnt malts, bitter roasted coffee bean and dark chocolate, biscuity Munich malts, a light scattering of earthy hops that last long into the finish. Well rounded, mouthfilling flavour. The body little more than light but its presence is that of something bigger. I really enjoyed this one. Could be a new choice for session beer if it was more readily available. Delicious!
