Pours a dark amber with a fine off white head. Nose is really rich, sweet toffee, caramel, almost coffee, slight citrus freshness. Flavor is delightful caramel and toffee, brown sugar, background grapefruit. Finish is citrussy, more caramel. Medium to heavy body, slightly sticky. This is a really wonderful beer.

Tap @ brewery. Dark amber with good lacing. Aromas of citrus and pine hops as well as caramel malt. Initial bitter hop flavours of citrus blossom and pine up front but only immediate bitterness which leads into a caramel and biscuit malt sweetness. A slightly bitter back palate but the sweet malts are the predominant flavour. I like this one.

this one has super model good looks, with its tanned complexion and auburn hair. The aroma has plenty of toffee malt, some grapefruit and a touch of floral aroma. The taste is very smooth, featuring toffee, orange and grapefruit in a combo that hides its alcohol with ease. A ripper.

Sevenlee (1407) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2013
Pours a dark cloudy brown with a light brown head. Aroma is malt, fruit, pine, caramel and some toffee. Taste is medium to high sweet leading to a sweet hoppy finish. Good stuff.

Bif (1561) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Pours a dark amber color with a decdent tan head that fades to sme lacing. Aroma of pine, some caramel and bit of grain. taste of Pine, some roasted malt and caramel sweetness with a touch of spice. Big bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Medium body, mooth with a bit of a lingering bitterness. The 7.5% ABV is well hidden. Interesting take on the style.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 a great local achievement. classic toffeed amber nose, with complex malt body and balanced hop profile.. could be hoppier for some, but i reckon it’s a cracker.

Jado (575) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2013
Pours a deep but clear amber with a tight beige head. Aromas of pine, grass, caramel and malt on the nose. The taste is dominated initially by hop bitterness followed up by dark caramel, biscuity malt and some spice. Medium mouth feel with citrus zest and pepper in the aftertaste. Good beer.

mkel07 (3718) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 17, 2013
330ml bottle from Slow Beer. Almost looks like a barley wine with a good strong head of sand coloured foam and a strong honey amber base. Weighty in the glass which is always a good sign. There are a lot of caramel aromas coming from the glass and it smells great. Rich, full and thick in the mouth this beer leaves a long aftertaste on the palate. Hoppy with no bitterness. Nice.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Deep amber/brown, aroma of butterscotch/burnt caramel, some alcohol and piney hops, quite bitter with roasted malt flavor, warming alcohol. Didn’t mind it at all.

ALLOVATE (2473) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2012
Into a tulip at just on cool. Yeast on in its almost opaque; a tawny orange in colour with very fine carbonation. Atop settles a good two inches of layered foam that messes up the glass with froth. Well spiced, HOT nose has sticky, caramelised stonefruit and citrus zest atop heavily toasted, sweet malt notes. There is some aggressively bitter, herbal hops displayed on the palate but these are muddled and frenzied into a mix of sticky fruit esters, biscuity malt and bready yeast tones, phenols and boozy, warming alcohol. Have to agree with Stew on this one. Medium light body, oily finish and residually sugary with a heavily woody, burnt toast linger in the very depths. Warms the cockles I must say but doesn’t come together. Needs a few screws tightened I think!! (33cL, no date stamp, Cellarbations Carlisle)
