COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is a robustly flavored ale made with top fermentation ale yeast. The beer is lightly hopped and black malt gives it darker color. The fruity ale-like esters blend well with the subtle hoppiness and hints of coffee/chocolate to deliver a unique beer.

courtesy of Philipp and Thomas - clear brown beer with no foam left; aroma of wort and dextrose; thin-bodied, tart and astringent; short and vanishing aftertaste of cola and herbs - terribly insignificant

Explained to me as "the coal miner’s beer". Still pretty good stuff, mildly sweet, caramel, nutty. Brown body with small airy head, easy drinker.

On tap at Mortdale pub. Schooner of black! Very faint malt nose. Dark ruby red with thin but lasting head. Spritzy but robust. Clean bitter finish with a little coffee/cocoa right at the end. Brown ale? More like a dark lager, I think.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear dark brown amber colour. Aroma is stone fruit. Taste is sweet malt. Mouth feel is a bit thin. This beer is...........ok. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

If desperate times call for desperate measure, i.e. you’re in a shitty Sydney pub that has all the big sterile beers like VB or Tooheys New and there’s this, you’ll find it at least attempts to have some sort of flavour. It’s by no means good, but a man must do what a man must do.

sm89walt (1799) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2014
Keg. Poured a dark brown with slight ruddy hues and a small, somewhat lasting, lacing light beige head atop. Nutty, malty sweet characters of mid, dark and fried fruits, roasted malts and then some pithy yeast complexities. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and finishing with a moderate intensity, modest length bitterness.

Capa (2262) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Mahogony in color with an off-white head. Toasted malts, molasses, chocolate, with lightly sweet fruit. Medium bodied. Pretty solid, really. Not what I look for in a brown ale, but I’d have a couple pints and be fine with it.

It Is better than the other Tooheys range, it at least has a little flavour. but I’d only ever get it when it’s the only option alongside Tooheys extra dry etc, I would never seek this out. not much interesting here.

Slightly sweet aroma. Black colour with ok head. Smokey and chocolate flavours with smooth finish. Medium to heavy body with medium carbonation, very creamy.
