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.

Keg - Poured a mahogany brown with slight red hues and a lasting, creamy off-white one-finger head atop. Nutty, toffee malts with some dark fruit tang and a dark choccy, coffeeish bitterness. Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a medium intensity, moderate length bitterness in the finish.

This was the first dark ale I ever tried and so I have a soft spot for it but have gone on to enjoy other beers more. It has a pleasant aroma of roasted malts and caramel when you first open the bottle, however it has little aroma in the glass. It pours a dark orange/brown with a medium tan head that fades, with some lacing in the glass. It has a rather thin feel as you drink and a simple but very pleasant taste of roasted malts. My overall score may be a little biased.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty subdued for a dark ale, smooth and easy to drink, pretty high carbonation without much head retention, not bad, prefer a bit more oommf, tho admittedly haven’t yet gained a taste for stout or the burnt characteristics and in this one it is a bit subdued for better or worse. A little fruit in the aroma, lets say guava and pomegranate.

Cola brown with small head. Minimal aroma - some dark fruits, toast and honey. The taste is roasted malts, honey, with some nuttiness in the finish. Too thin, seems watered down. Not too bad though.
