Maris (1108) - Canberra, - JAN 26, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 27/1/2013. Pours a murky cola colour with a biggish head that disappears quite quickly. Had a modest caramel malt aroma with a hint of dark fruit. The flavour follows suit, with some caramel sweetness, some prune and date, and a bit of chocolate and brown sugar. Couldnít detect any Belgian character to it at all. Finishes with medium to big slightly roasty bitterness. I found this to be ridiculously over-carbonated, which refused to settle down despite being left in the glass for ages. Even without the explosion of bubbles making it hard to down, it comes across as a bit pedestrian. Rather disappointing given the Moon Dog Love Tap I just downed previously was rather good. Perhaps one for a re-rate just in case it was a dud bottle.

bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. pours a dark murky brown with a thin tan head. aroma is strong citrus with hints of resin, chocolate and coffee appearing in the background. Body is full and carbonation is moderate. taste is citrusy and resinous with hints of bitter coffee and burnt toast. enjoyed this a lot!

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 (92) - 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.

orange_3084 (127) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2014
Hazy dark brown colour with thin-medium tan head. Slightly sour cocoa nose. Citrus trying to come through, but is masked by the malt. Taste has nice complexity. Bitter chocolate with bread and dark toffee. Coats the palate nicely and has a lingering finish. Itís something different, but maybe not to my tastes.
