COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full of rich complex malt flavours. Using a broad mix of chocolate and crystal malts, the Cavalier Brown delivers an initial burst of caramel sweetness, followed by a dry, crisp roasted note. The perfect mix of chocolate and toasty caramel flavours. With added complexity aromas from classic American hops add subtle citrus notes that will reveal something new in every sip.

330ml bottle into a stemmed glass. Dark brown, light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, toffee, caramel. Lovely roasted malts aroma - I couldnt sense the hops. Taste was predominately sweet and delicious. I like a bigger flavoured beer, but it was still very nice. Happily have again - wont overwhelm food, and would also be nice on its own on a cooler day.

Excited about this one as I cant fault the other beers of this brewery, so into a snifter at just on cool it goes. Deepest ruby cola body that shimmers in the lights. Big, foamy, whipped up dollop of cream settles atop. Sultry, milk chocolate, roasted carob, almond meal, earth, a touch of rust and buttery brioche on the nose. A malt driven madman on the palate with a lot of funky nuances keeping it interesting. Hints of plum, raisin toast, green peppercorn, charred wood and earth mingle with a good base of creamy chocolate and dusty malts. Sweet front balanced by a drawing dryness mid-palate and tangy, mildly bitter fruit finish. Medium to medium light body with good presence. Carbonation is spritzy to low. Light diacetyl as in the nose adds complexity. I really enjoyed this one. Sessionable or just good as a solo brew!!! (33cL, no date stamp, Boozebud)

Black with lots of brown/white head. Surprisingly bitter aroma, with some chocolate and malt tones. Tastes of malt with a decent amount of hops. Lots and lots of burnt chocolate taste. Chocolate taste lingers long after the beer is gone. Quite crispy on the palate, but still very smooth.

Muggus69 (2414) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle, Hoo Haa Bar, Brisbane Deep ruby body, holds a off-white head. Nice nose; plenty of hop citrus & pine to accompany rich toffee, biscuit, nuts & chocolate. Full body, plenty of texture, good carbonation. Good hit of nutty, toffee, biscuity malt with notes of chocolate & spicy hop. Long finish, plenty of bitterness.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2015 The bottle describes it as "the perfect mix of chocolate and toasty caramel flavours" which is dead on. It pours very dark with an immaculate head, creamy, not too sweet, bitter finish. Re-rating, really strong roast aroma and flavour, one of the best heads Ive seen.

M_Sack (675) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle. Murky brown and frothy cream head. Chocolate, toasted nuts and just a hint of citrus. Initial lemony citrus hop flavour, which leads into nuts, chocolate, caramel and toasted malt. A good beer that was let down by being over carbonated for the style, which prevented the full flavour profile coming through.
