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!

Not a bad drop, very smooth and with a mild aroma. Flavours of nut and burnt toffee, go and buy it.

Roasty edge but plenty of dark fruit. Quite pleasant. Could easily have all year round. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Deep dark clear amber with dissipating head. Little aroma - perhaps a little English hop spiciness. Light toffees, burnt toast, roast malt taste but the thin and highly attenuated mouthfeel, and surprisingly high carbonation for the style, throws. Quick bitterness finishes. Not exactly sure what they’re aiming for here; the thin mouth feel prevents it from fulfilling the role of mid-winter comfort beer but the the deeper malt profile disqualifies from being some sort of refreshing American Amber Ale. Frankensteiny, but enjoyable.

Nice malt aroma. Dark brown amber cloudy colour with little head. Nice malty flavour with smooth finish. Very low carbonation with medium to heavy body.

mattyhennessy (287) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours black with an amber tinge. Tan head that holds moderately. Earthy aroma with toffee sweetness. Lowish carbonation that brings out the malt character further. Light bodied. Taste is malt driven with charred malt, caramel sweetness and a slight nutty finish. A trusted choice to go back to

cattrall (13) - Midlevels, HONG KONG - JUL 28, 2014
Caramel chocolate aroma. Reddish brown appearance with no head to speak of. Medium sweetness on the nose with a lightly bitter aftertaste that lingers on the roof of the mouth. Light to medium body - not what I was expecting for a dark ale. Overall pleasant but nothing outstanding.

dfadcock (1) - diamond creek, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2014 does not count
Purchased from Liquorland, Diamond Creek, Victoria. Has an earthy, caramel, aroma. No head to speak of, a clear dark brown colour, tasting heavy on the tongue with very little carbonation. Will drink this again. Will have to as I bought a slab!

Imaena (1817) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle. I grabbed a bottle of this in Cairns while on a 24 hour layover. It was decent but no worth the price of a single. Malty and slightly roasted with well balanced hopping. Better than some of the other stuff i got up north.

Bottled, from random bottle shop in Melbourne, Victoria. Clear mahogany volour, small head. Caramel and milk chocolate upfront. Mid sweet with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Some chocolate,notes of coffee and spice. Mid bitter finish.
