3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer highlight of my recent New Zealand trip was finding the microbrews from Wanaka Beerworks. All are terrific. This one pours a dark brown. Roasted malt with a sweet chocolaty, toasty, caramel palate. Delicious.

Dark black beer. Nice milk chocolate aroma. A bit of roast, toast, and coffee in the nose as well. Sweet full-bodied palate with a very creamy texture. Flavour is also sweet, rich chocolate, some toasted malts and a touch of herbal character as well. Another great brew from Wanaka.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle. Looks good when poured but it didn’t really produce the goods overall when it came to enjoyability. Deep and bold black with a crisp crackling tan head and a smoky burnt wood aroma. Good mouthfeel with a well balanced flavour and a burnt smoky aftertaste.
