Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a short light tan head that doesn’t last long. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, dark fruit and herbs. Flavour is about the same. Mouthfeel is light, a bit watery, with moderate carbonation and a medium bitter finish. An ok beer but not particularly exciting. Pyobon (1516) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2009
Bottle. Clear dark red brown with no head. Not a very distinctive aroma but definite hints of toffee and coffee. Thick creamy palate. Flavours of dark malts, chocolate, caramel, with no obvious hop bitterness, but some burnt bitter notes. A reasonable beer, but not very special and didn’t seem to really all work together well. hawthorne00 (4151) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark copper. A finger and a half of beige head, fades to half that. Smells of caramel and resin. Quite carbonated. Dried fruit giving way to coffee and semi-bitter chocolate. Pretty good. jonno (2981) - JAPAN - OCT 21, 2009
bottle. 6.1%ABV on bottle. Dark amber hue. Nose is caramel and toffee. Medium bodied. Decent drinking, even if a bit generic. Dredd (975) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2009
Nice sweet caramel aroma, pours amber with mocha head. Flavour profile is a mix of sweet malts such as toffee, stonefruit and some breadiness that finishes with a nice lingering finish. Quite a pleasent surprise this one is!!

Draught at Lord Nelson, Sydney. This one’s better...it pours amber with a tanned head that lingered. Aroma of caramel, toast, fruit and earthy hop notes. The flavour is caramel, toast, fruit and nuts. Medium bodied and a malty, bitter finish. Without a doubt the best beer on offer though the others are less than average. jkm (235) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2009
Pours a rather dark slightly cloudy, red/brown, with a thin tan head. Moderate carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet, flavours of coffee, slightly fruity, burnt choc, moderately bitter and sweet finish. - 330 ml brown bottle. pivo (2688) - GERMANY - MAY 30, 2009
Nice pubby place near observatory in the Rocks area of Sydney. mkel07 (6462) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2009
Caramelly malt nose light. Cloudy dark amber low clingy head. Nutty malt tight stinging bitter. Alcohil warms going down. Fairly high hopping but with a mix of seemingly stale hops. Very British overall, but hoppier than you’d expect. Ok brew but not terribly exciting.
330ml bottle. Nice little surprise this one. Poured a light tan in colour with a beige to tan medium head and good carbonation with a mixture of small and large bubbles. Aroma of burnt malt and toffee with an underlying hint of chocolate. Great texture and mouthfeel as it leaves a smooth mellow aftertaste. Slight hint of mildly burnt chocolate in the flavour.

Bottle. Cloudy dark tea-amber. Interesting rum-raisin toffee aroma. Same flavour on the palate with a touch of yeasty fruit. Medium bodied, low bitterness, a little watery.
