The nose picks up coffee, toast, burnt sugar, nuts and yeast. Chocolate on the tongue. Gives a reminder of rich Christmas pudding in taste. Beautifully complemented by a port-like touch. Heads stays thick and creamy. Can detect the alcohol but not detrimental. Is better after bottle opened 10 minutes. Classy effort. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Night_Cap (57) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JAN 13, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2016 Bottle: 330ml. Served at room temperature. Pours a hazy dark brown (almost black). Head is small, foamy and tanned; mostly diminishing with no lace. Aroma is strong, sweet and malty with rummy fruitcake, dark chocolate, burnt toffee and hints of coffee. Flavour is rich, smooth and malty with rum and raisin chocolate, coffee, caramelized dates, hints of liquorice and a light earthy bitterness. Full bodied with soft carbonation, an oily texture and a long finish. Amazing stuff!

2014 release, aroma is very light, mildly wet cardboard, but then the taste is rich and figgy with a warming alcohol sweetness. Pleasant amber brown colour. Will have another of those

Oakes (15294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2016
At Keg & Brew, Surry Hills. Muddy looking light brown. Medium head. Lots of alcohol. Minimal nutty character and otherwise a blast of alcohol and sweet F all else.

DeliriumT (469) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2015
Pours practically black with quickly dissipating head. Too dark for a brown ale but I like it that way. Aroma is subdued but toasty with a faint herbal hint. The flavour is sublime. Rich burnt toffee, faint fig, and again, something very faintly herbal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

varanid99 (958) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2015
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
