Dredd (836) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2008
Well this is a break from the standard Otway look and feel. Pours with a deep amber colour with mammoth white head. Aroma is mixed spices and a hint of malt. Flavour is superb, initial bursts of spice, banana and sweet malt, this transitions to a drying finish of dark sugar and almost raisin/molasses finish. Very enjoyable.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2009
Bottle (750ml) Cellared for 8 months. Poured hazy burnt copper with a large, dense, foamy, lightly tanned head which lasted well. Aroma was of barnyard hay with green apples, sour dough, prunes, caramelized dates, allspice and light notes of powdered ginger. Flavor was a mild (pleasant) acidic bitterness with straw, caramel, dried pineapple, dry pears, figs, muscatels, allspice, white pepper and a woody finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, a lightly acidic mouthfeel and a good length finish. Very well balanced Biere De Garde.

Slightly spicy aroma. Dark ruby and amber colour, clear with reasonable head. Nice rich spice flavours throughout with a smooth finish. Heavy warming body with medium carbonation.
