eczematic (1320) - Adelaide, - SEP 7, 2012
murky brown with a thin dissipating tan head. not the head you get from a carefully fermented and mashed german beer. cherry, chocolate and light nail polish remover aroma. flavour all happens up the front of the mouth: quite sour and thin, with some underlying chocolate and cloying sweetness. dry, quick finish just when you want the malt richness. mediocre stuff typical of a lot of aussie micros. and also typical of aussie micros, overpriced: more expensive than schlenkerla urbock!!!

Taster, GBBF 2013, passed on to me by harrisoni. Many thanks. Jet black, faint beige head, spotty lacing. Chocolate malt on the nose, dry. Chocolate, wood and dust hoppy flavours. Smooth dark bitter ending. Enjoying (London Olympia 14.08.2014).

hawthorne00 (2553) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2013
2013 version. Dark brown with loose inch of beige head that fades fairly quickly. Aroma of chocolate fudge, vanilla, pepper, prunes. Very silky mouthfeel. Sweet fudgy chocolate, prunes, cherries; light floral and spice notes lift away the sweetness until modest bitterness and pepper remain. Cuddly and subtle.

Probably the best S&W I have tried. Nice balanced and gentle beer. Slight hint of roast that lingers. Not a bad effort.

CitrusP (59) - Newcastle, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2012
On tap at The Albion. Poured a very dark brown to black colour with a small but lingering head. Lots of woody and ashy smoke and chocolate in the aroma. Smoke comes through in the flavour without being dominating. well balanced. Small to moderate amount of carbonation. Extremely easy to drink and very nice overall.

maneliquor (3285) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2012
Ceramic bottle from Mane Liquor. Good looking stuff. Pours deep mahogony-brown with a small off white head, leaving some nice lacing. Nose is dominated by caramel malts. A hint of smoke in there with some dark christmas cake fruits - cherry, plum, date. Chocolate shines as it warms. Taste showcases dark fruits very nicely with an under riding chocolate note which works nicely. Hint of smoke and roasted malts come through. Loads of caramel. High carbonation but helps it go down easy. Very pleasing stuff
