Despite the enthusiasm with which motelpogo proffered this before me, I found it to be rather unexciting. Sweet, sugary golden syrup flavour, no discernable bitterness nor hop presence in any form for that matter. I'll give it another go some other time, just to be fair.

Sweet mollasses, choc/caramel/toffee, some roast in the finish, rotting fruit, honey and mollasses. Really sweet and ugly. But works out to be OK in the end. Not as bad as it sounds.

Yes, Venice post nuclear holocaust... This is a classic Aussie dark old. I love this kind of beer: lip smackingly yum, thick and swiggable served in schooners with Newcastle folk all about and ferry views.

Thick and bitter, not as smooth as say Tooheys Old but enjoyable all the same.
