COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mouth filling malt characters and a beautiful fruit driven complexity derived from the open fermenters, mix this with a reassuring bitterness from some aromatic hops and we reckon the result is a delightfully scrumptious ale!

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle. Small tan/light brown head over a dark ruby/garnet body. Aroma and taste of tropical fruits, grapes, toast and spices. On the bitter side of balanced (just). Light bodied.

Maris (952) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2010
From 330ml bottle on 14/6/2010.The aroma is spicy, with some fruity hops. Not similar to any brown brown ale Iíve tried to date, it almost has a dash of APA to it, with dark fruit and a distinct hoppy spiciness dominating the malt. A nice effort.

Bottle. This didnít drink as well for me as others. It sounds good, but I thought it just a little bit lacking.

Mattburns (109) - USA - MAY 18, 2010
Tap and bottle. Nutty, roasting, in taste which is evenly matched by hops and bitterness. Dark in colour. Good amount of lacing. A sessionable beer.

ComradeK (978) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2010
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown, with a small head. Interesting aroma - slightly spicy and a bit sweet as well, with maybe a hint of chicory. Nicely bitter, with a smooth dark chocolate aftertaste. A fine dark beer for winter, and a good example of Australian craft brewing.

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2010
when will Aussie brewers stop making "dark ales" (and get on with making stouts). this could pass for a pale ale actually. but itís really another crystal malty Amber ale with low bitterness and lots of fruity aroma hops. a touch of class provided by solid English tasting malty foundation and some interesting kiwifruit and blackcurrant notes from either yeast or hops. still neither fish nor flesh for mine, like a cross between American brown and esb, both of which are halfway houses themselves, beer for those who donít know what they want.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dirty brown with smallish tan coloured heads. Some lacing, Aromas of dark sweet malt balanced by some citrus hops. Flavours show plenty of earthly slight toasted malts. Not too bad.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2010
Pours dark copper with ruby highlights and a large lasting head. Nose shows green, spicy, grapefruit hops with nutty darker malts and hints of chocolate in the background. Neither hops nor malt leap out of the glass, quite a good balance. First up upon tasting the malt seems to lead the way, with more nutty and lightly roasted notes. The hops mainly show up as a green, spicy finish of mild bitterness. Carbonation is too high, creating very dry finish.

floydian1 (898) - FNQ, Australia, - MAR 26, 2010
On tap at Little Creatures Dining Hall in Melbourne (recommended). Appears cloudy light brown with a medium tan head. Nose of caramel, nuts, raisins and a hint of dark chocolate. Flavour is toasty and fruity with a mild bitter hop finish. Smooth creamy mouthfeel with an easy drinkability. Medium bodied. Nice.
