UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 21/10/2014 first time Iíve had to relate a beer because it has everything that was missing last time rated. This time round it is smooth, full flavoured, really pleasant chocolate toasty malty notes. Itís a great beer this time round. Wondering if th huge difference is because this one is tap not bottle? Very good and worth a re-rate 22/9/2012There are parts of this I enjoy others I really really donít. Its more than a wee bit thin for me. There is no head or carbonation it seems flat and even though there is a nice roasty malt, chocolate after taste it is missing that rich in depth roasty maltieness that is nice with a brown ale. Not sure what all the hops are contributing but not really getting it. The ABV is nice enough though, bought as a night cap and thats what it is doing.

R4N5H (369) - SINGAPORE - JUL 5, 2015
Beerfest Asia, Singapore on 28/06/15. 33cl bottle. Full bodied and mecium carbonation. A hazy dark chocolate colour with a frothy off-white head. Sweet aroma of caramel, malt, chocolate and pine. Full flavour profile - a wonderful malt backbone, chocolate, caramel, a little coffee, spices and lots of hops. A lovely hoppy brown ale with a bittersweet spicy finish. Pretty damn good. Well done Moon Dog!

jrbaker81 (8) - - OCT 27, 2014 does not count
Pours a deep chocolate, with a decent head. Sweet confectioners chocolate on the nose and a hint of biscuit. Big roasted notes on the palate pushing through chocolate and coffee, with a drying almost tannic finish. Quite bitter helping a long finish. Carbonation is a little high but good stuff

Lovely dark chocolate colour with an off white quickly dissipating head. Hints of coffee and biscuit on the nose with a beautiful, smooth, rich coffee and chocolate taste. This beer is really smooth. I love it.

From a bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a thick lasting tan head, laces well, huge malty aroma with a hint of spice, roasted malt flavours and a medium bitterness on the back palate. Great beer.

Works out as a bitter English brown ale with Belgian yeast flavours and dark coffee-chocolate and caramel in the mix. Enjoyable for winter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big rich roasted nutty flavours. Has a warming feeling. A nice change from a style that I typically find watery and bland.

whoisghost (111) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2014
Way over carbonated, beer went everywhere upon opening too. Was excited by appearance and aroma to be hugely let down by taste and palate. Extremely bitter, none of the smoothness suggested by other reviewers. Must have been a bad bottle - undrinkable.
