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!

Poured a dark orange red with some visible sediment, most of which settled quite fast. No strong aroma, flavours roast, coffee. An enjoyable ale.

Tap @ Little Creatures Dining Hall, Melbourne. Pours cloudy dark amber with a nice creamy beige head leaving lace. Aroma is malty, bready, carame and, a bit sweet. Flavor like aroma, nice bitterness and fruityness. Finishes malty bitter.

I don’t drink beer and think all sorts of fancy words to express what it is like. I drink beer because it tastes good and this beer tastes good. Had some today while dipping some bread into olive oil and balsamic vinegar and the two tasted great together.

I had high hopes for this ale by the little creatures guys but sadly i was disapointed. Could hardly smell a thing, maybe slight hint of coffee and malts. Taste was awfully average, hardly any flavour and very little bitterness.

Simple dark ale, with aromas of cereal malts, slightly roasty. Dark in color, as the name implies. Slightly bitter taste, but not bad. Nice medium body, average carbonation, clean finish. Overall, fairly good. Just nothing horribly special. In context, as the Aussie craft beer movement is just getting going, it’s great. Overall, just average. Bottle labelled Best By April 2012, bought in a bottle shop in Melbourne.

fleagle (16) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2011
From a bottle at a burger joint in Melbourne. Pours an attractive dark orange brown with a few centimeters of head that soon melts away. Has a slightly sweet, toasty bread aroma with a well balanced bitterness, medium body and average carbonation. I could drink more of this.

This beer strength its the hop aroma. Citrus fruity floral is almost a perfume I´d like to wear. I´d guess a lot of American hops are added late in the boil for flavour and aroma only. It has an appealing brown coppery colour with a fluffy light tan head that stays put all the time. The taste continues showing everything that makes a hoppy beer good, although the malt balance is a bit off, since its not as malty as I would have liked for a ¨dark¨ ale. There is now enough caramel, bread or sweetness to set it aside from their pale ale. There is no hop harshness in the finish and the yeast caracter is subdued and pleasant. This beer is almost perfect, if only it had a bit of munich/vienna malt for malty goodness.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Doesn’t pour like a dark beer at all, rather a dark ruby with a beige head. Aroma is dried fruits, roasted malts, slight maple. Very easy drinking. Taste is all about the malts. Roasted malts and not much else. Not bad for a quaffer
