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!

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.

R4N5H (291) - SINGAPORE - JUL 11, 2015
Draught sooner at the Slip Inn, Sussex Street, Sydney on 09/07/15. Dark brown in colour with a thick tan coloured head. Medium carbonation and body. Aroma of sweet dark fruits, malt and pine. Flavour of caramel, chocolate, roasted malt and hops. Sweetness balanced by bitter hops. A nice bitter malty finish.

dnicolaescu (1281) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 26, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear chestnut brown, big beige head. Brown malts aroma, sweet dark bread - kind of like panettone crust - and citrus hops. The taste is similar - dark sweet toasted bread, moderate zesty hops. Simple, yet nice and balanced.

stevoj (2875) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 5, 2015
Dark bodied pour with small wispy, airy head. Roast grains at the forefront, faintly in the aroma, stronger in the taste. Reminiscent of a German Schwartz or dunkel lager.

TedE (498) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Acidic malt aroma. Opaque dark brown beer with scummy off white head. Medium body with slight zingy feel. Toasty malt finish, slightly acidic. Not the best, one is enough.

sm89walt (1816) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2014
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.
