bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2007
Poured a dark cloudy amber with a beige loosely whipped egg-white head. A thin roasted aroma with lots of dry chocolate and a touch of coffee. On tasting there is even more coffee, reminding me of those dodgy chocolate-coffee eclair lollies. A restrained bitterness dominates, resulting in a mostly uninspiring flavour sensation. A little stronger than medium bodied, with a bit too much carbonation though. Not bad, but not great - Ill be interested in trying this on tap. (bottle marked 6.1% abv)

Muggus69 (2229) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2006
Found this in a 330ml bottle. Serving it chilled. Aroma reminds me a bit of a typical Aussie stout; plenty of mocha coffee and roasted malts in there with the tiniest off note to it. Looks quite nice with a big fluffy tan head atop a hazy dark amber body. Palate seems a bit spritzy and thin for a beer of this strength. Nutty malts dominate, with coffee, drinking chocolate and roasted malt notes. Finish is reasonably dry and moderately bitter. Seems almost like a souped-up Tooheys Old.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 25, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Pours dark amber to light brown with a thick ivory head. Strong chocolate aroma. A mild roasted flavor and a milk chocolate taste. This beer seemed way way stronger than the 6.9% ABV posted on the bar board. Easily, this was the best beer made here.

Stew41 (1957) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUL 10, 2006
Malt driven amber ale style. Lightish chocolate tan in colour. Reasonably fizzy palate keeps the weight surprisingly light for a 6.7% beer. Malty chocolate notes come across the palate really well. Very appealing. Best of the marque in my opinion.

stison42 (318) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2006
A nice brown. Smooth and malty but nothing to distinguish it. The best part is the Lord Nelson Brewery pub itself. Made for a good end to a walk in Sydney.

vanvenlo (1788) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2006
1 Oct 05 - Roasted malt and lightly hopped aroma. Clear dark brown colour, suds lacing but only an OK head. Malty vegetable fruit flavour. Medium mouthfeel, tangy hoppy finish.

omhper (24077) - Tyres, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy chestnut brown. Roasty malt aroma. A dryish beer dominated by roasty malt, creates strong coffeelike flavours. A careful hop rate lets the malt flavours dominate and results in low bitterness.

Lunkie (1850) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2005
