Rosslew (303) - - MAR 11, 2014
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

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 (18) - 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

Muggus69 (1401) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2015
330mL bottle from Beer Cartel Brewed 7.6.14 Rather attractive looking beer - deep mahogany body, holds a small tight tan head. Nose is subdued, yet rich & complex; roast/burnt nuts and toast, cocoa, molasses, dark grain bread, black plums, prunes & dried fruits. Full rich body without being too boozy or cloying. Low carbonation, syrupy texture. Body reveals layers of roast nuts, meat, toast, cocoa, dark fruits. Finishes moderately bitter, relatively dry. Big tasty brown ale - can’t ask for much more from a traditional brown.

Bottle from cellarbrations super store hami hill. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is boozy mixed with brown sugar, coffee, vanilla and chocolate with slight citrus and toast. Mouthfeel is medium to full body with low carbonation. Taste is robust and bitter with lots of chocolate and roasty notes. There's slight vanilla sweetness that comes through as well. Enjoyed this!

beer-yum (754) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 1, 2014
Restrained aroma is in contrast to the deep black colour and a sweet malt-forward flavour.A delicious beer that hides it’s strength with ease only gets better as it gets warmer. What’s not to like!

From a bottle. Pours a very dark brown, very thick with a tiny cream head, very smooth with chocolate and coffee flavours, mild roasted aroma, only a hint of the hops. I love this!
