Maybe something happened during transport, but my experience with this beer was not what others have indicated. A slight, hard to define aroma. Pours a dark brown with little to no head. The taste was the real disappointment. The carbonation overwhelmed the taste. While roastiness was there the carbonation just suppressed it. Medium bodied with too high carbonation. Overall, was not enjoyable. However, I want to try it again to see if this particular bottle was A fluke or not.
Tulip on tap at Beer Deluxe, Sydney. Murky brown beer with thin white head
Light carbonation. Smells of very little. Smoky, malty and bitter with an equally bitter finish. Much more bitterly intense than your usual brown ales. danielfb75 (4) - - JUL 4, 2017 does not count
Light brown with hints of red and a nice beige foam that quickly dissipates (but leaves a lace all the way). Aroma mostly sweet, biscuity, with light hints of caramel and chocolate. Some hop aromas nicely balanced. Light body, low carbonation . Taste is malty sweet, a little sourness, with a cofee-bitter dry finish. Feel no alcohol.

On tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown. Biscuit, orange, little peach, touch of toffee. Nice brown. Rumbero (87) - Miami, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Disclosure: aged for 4+ years. given the style, prob should not have done it but got left behind. all things considered, its drinkable as the signs of aging although there are not overwhelming.
pours a simple brown with thin off-white head that quickly disappears. mostly clear but does have some hazyness (prob from yeast deposits). minimal lacing. body is quite thin as is its texture. carbonation is a bit light. not much in terms of astringency. flavor is a muted combination of sweet and roasty malts, with a hint of chocolate. some oxidation shows up and there’s a bothersome harshness that lingers in the aftertaste. as you would expect, finishes with muted sweetness. --- to many this would be a drinkable beer still... score is a combination of what I experienced with this half liter bottle and what I remember the fresh Rewired to taste like.

Strong amber colour with redish head. Far more crisp than I was expecting for this style with a slight hop profile.

Bottle (1 pint 0.9 oz). Pours dark brown with reddish hue and tan head. Brown sugar and pepper and spice in the nose. Bread crust and brown sugar upfront with a hint of coffee. Bready malt and caramel with some pleasant bitterness in the finish. An excellent brown ale.

Aroma: sweet and malty, going in direction of apple juice; bottle possibly old; Appearance: very dark ruby red with offwhite head that dissipates slowly; Taste: follows nose with overly sweet malt and apple notes; not good; Palate: medium-heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: may not be judging fairly due to unknown age of bottle, but definitely not impressive.

Good clear brown-copper body with decent beige head. Aroma of wet farts, chaps, and Dapper Dan Man hair grease. Flavour is burnt wood, roasted oak, smelly leather shoes. Brown is a good way to describe it. Rather earthy, pretty good, but also not the tastiest in this category in my humble opinion. Oldschool_Mike (368) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle into pint glass. Pours a dark brown colour with tan head. Aroma is slightly chocolatey. Taste is chocolate and roasted malt notes with a pleasing bitterness.
