Deep brown pour with a thick tan head. Huge toffee aroma, spicy, dried fruit, burnt caramel. Taste is toffee, chocolate, a little warmth, nutty, sweet. Pretty damn fine beer

motelpogo (7701) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 16, 2015
bottle from warners at the bay; quite a frothy, lightly hazed brown; aroma of caramel, hints of whiteboard markers; some alcohol showing, pleasant salted caramel flavours and decent rounding bitterness; curious and not bad

Brenhophead (670) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2015
330mL bottle. Pour a deep rich dark chocolate brown with an amazing sweet toffee molasses aroma. A rich sweet toffee flavour with some nutty molasses notes. I’d have to say this was one of the best brown ales I’ve ever had.

Malrider69 (112) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2015
Pours a dark brown colour, almost devoid of head - very under carbonated, almost flat. The aroma is of malt and overpoweringly ethanol. The flavour is of toffee and caramel and is relatively complex, but the overpowering flavour of alcohol ruins it. A disappointing beer

stevoj (3106) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle #446 of 700. Aroma is brown ale on steroids, with plenty of alcohol warmth also evident. Despite the ABV kick, taste is smooth and woody, and a hint of molasses sweetness. Pours out clear dark brown with fast disappearing beige airy head. SmalI hint of dry nutty flavor lingers.

BuckeyeBoy (4057) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 16, 2015
750ml bottle 446 of 700 thanks to Steve for hauling this back from Australia. Pours out a dark brown topped with a tan head. Nose is malts nutty notes vanilla and some sweetness. Taste is more of the sweetness malts wood nuttiness.

ANZUShophunter (160) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2015
From bottle, pours dark brown with frothy head. More yeast than hops on the nose with a bit of liquorice. Taste of chocolate with a kick. A very nice, warming brown ale.

Cam_Dynamite (110) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 Bottle. Looks very cola-like on pouring. Settles a nice blackish with a small ghost-like White head. Aroma is very nutty. Chocolate and iced coffee. Taste is very much chocolate but without being to sweet which I like. Great representation of the style. Dig.

swannycellars (43) - Swanbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2015
330ML from the first release. Deep brown with a tiny beige head which disappears quickly. Aroma is prune and spice (xmas cakey). Tastes are brandy, nuts, choc, sweet vanilla, cinnamon and light bitterness to finish. Little bit boozey but holds 8 well. Like fruit and nut chocolate. Yum
