2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2012 Bottle courtesy of Nick. Pours chestnut brown with a very small beige head. Odd nose to this one, reminded me a lot of mushy peas, which I love but I don’t think it comes across very well in a beer. Taste was a little boring, mainly raisins and toffee. Just ok although scotch ales aren’t really my thing

330 ml bottle, courtesey of Nate2g.
This has been aged a bit and without having tried it young I think that has improved it. Clean raisiney flavours and aroma with a lot of toffee and some chocolate as well. Very drinkable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Creamy latte coloured crown of foam. Deep brown in colour and appears solid and inviting in the glass. Strong biscuity malty aromas with a hint of caramel. Well balanced flavour that is very tasty. A little thin in the body when you drink it but this does nothing to detract from the overall enjoyment you get when you drink this.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. A very dark brown in the glass. Tobacco on the nose, and then even more in the flavour. Some chocolate as well, with some touches of oak. Quite sweet, but it manages it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Local Taphouse in Sydney. The roasted malts really come through, leaving an odd brew which seems like a marriage between a rauch and a kriek. Pretty tasty though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle, pours a hazy brown colour with a one finger beige head. Aroma of toffee and/or caramel. Unusual light texture to it. Definete roasted elements not as bitter on the after taste as expected. Quite warming going down. Definetely worth a try, is a solid beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark copper with a small head.
Nose shows earthy peat, cinnamon, soft alcohol, caramelised malt and creamy chocolate. Pretty complex!
More the same regarding flavours, but with more roasted malt present as well. Not quite as complex, and there’s a floury flavour I find in several of the Red Hill beers.
Carbonation is too high.
