Bottle 330ml from Purvis. Masterpiece, great hoppy nose, with robust body. Aromas of caramel, smoke, grass, and liquorice. Sweet start, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Dark brown, with a frothy head.

These guys mean business. I havenít tasted an Aussie beer at this level of complexity. This is big boy Belgian yeast character with a backdrop of quality hops and brown sugar ! Outstanding

I love MoonDog beers! This one is one of my favorites, a Bulgo-American India Brown. The pour is impenetrable dark brown, almost porter brown, a creamy off white to brown sits on top. Just the aroma of this beer is enough to score it highly, everything is there like the name suggests, rich rich stone fruits and brown sugar, a fortified wine buzz, roasted malt and a nice hit of Belgium chocolate. At first the taste isn't a heavy hitting as most Belgium strong ales, it's almost a little fresh. That does not last long, the fruits, cherry, raisin hit you hard, a sherry soaked fruit cake. The strong dry hopping cuts through a lot of this, definate pine resins help with the fruit. The finish is thick and smooth, a Belgium like sweetness is left, but a nice roast and hop bitterness are a nice touch. Awesome beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle. Sexual pleasure in a glass. Nutty and toasty. Some aniseed. The hops donít come through at first, but later explode, but still blends well on the palate.

mkel07 (4669) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2012
330ml bottle. Layers of brown colour fill the glass. Carries a fine modest sand coloured foam. A great bg mixture of aromas with fruity, sweet and sour all blended together. Thin in the mouth with lots of flavour. Like the aroma the flavour is a great mixture and leaves the palate very confused.

jesperhammer (3788) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2012
03-JUN-2012, bottle @PapsÝ tasting. Unclear brown with 2/3 tan head. Brettíy, slightly tart aroma. Taste is roast, bourbon, coffee. Bery hoppy bitter with grape fruit and pine. Infected...? Never mind. It is really nice.

maneliquor (3480) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours murky brown with a thick, off white head. Aroma of vibrant citrus hops, pine and a touch of toffee malts. Caramel is surrounded by citrus and hop resin before a finish of pine and dry, roasted malts. Sharp bitterness to finish with quite a full bodied mouth feel. Very, very nice

Davros (2545) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2012
Pours murky dark brown with a large, lasting head. Boths hops and roasted malt are strong on the nose; big coffee and cocoa notes alongside grapefruit, pine and peach. Same story with the flavours, big roasty characters as mentioned in the aroma, while the hops are mostly noticeable in a big, brash bitterness. Some alcohol is noticeable, but not hot.
