BIG malt nose. Caramel. Translucent mahogany red with small cream head. Looks great in the glass. Taste develops as it warms. There’s a kind of malt biscuit thing going on. Tiny bit of bitterness in the finish very late on. Good but not great.

Seen this around for a while and finally tried. Dark fruits thats slightly stewed and malt dominate with a little citrus coming through. Well balanced and brewed but not particularly my style

Draught @ Cookie, Melbourne
Attractive looking burnished bronze beer with a solid off-white head.
Not a great deal to the aroma, but nice enough; browned toffee & toast, plummy & dried fruits, touch of hop spice.
Medium-full body, soft carbonation, good weight about it.
Palate packed full of plenty of malt - toasted nuts, burnt toffee, fresh crusty bread, with undertones of vinous red fruits & floral hop. Moderate bitterness, medium dry finish.
Tasty amber ale.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear amber brown with a beige head. Looks quite thin. Aroma is of sweet dark fruits, plum and a little citrus. Flavour is very mild, carbonation is high. Some caramel and cherry flavour but is overall a little watery for my taste. A dry finish. Nothing flash

I was expecting this beer to pour red in colour but this is definitely brown. The aroma isn't exceptional either. Nice maltiness balanced with good bitterness. This is an ok beer.

Dark brown lager, nice and fresh on tap with more flavour than most lagers but not too exciting for me.

Bottle at Grill'd, Brisbane. Quite a unique one, this. Nose of prunes, wet rags, rotten veggies- stinky good. Dark toffee brown, medium creamy head. Starts a little dank, but sweetness comes through in the end- cherries. Medium body, light carbonation. Fruity, spicy and quite deep. Nice.

From what I remember this was a low key easily drinkable ale. Caramel malt was the subtle flavor that dominated the beer for me and slowly as the beer warmed grew on me. Easily drinkable nothing to rave about but worth a pint.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - pours deep ruby with a big off white head. First sniff the head was soapy with a slight metallic twinge, after, a swirl the rich dried fruit almost port aroma came through. Rich plum taste up from with a lingering fruit finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but nice drop.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. BB 2Mar14. Poured a translucent garnet red colour with a three- to four-finger beige foamy head that retained well and left suds rings on the glass. High carbonation as seen by numerous small bubbles forming trails. Aroma subtly of sweet caramel malt. Taste of sweet caramel with any influence of hops absent. Light body. Smooth finish. Average.
