Really nice. Had this with lunch on the brewery patio overlooking the beautiful Roebuck Bay in Broome. Light brown with a long lasting head. I can’t remember specific characteristics, but I do remember that it was delicious. Both my wife and I preferred the Pride of Blackwood (maybe because it was 32 degrees in the shade and the fruitier POB was more refreshing).

mkel07 (6269) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2009
330ml bottle. Dark brown copper bronze in colour with a non existent head. Loose thin bubbles stick to the edge of the glass and aroma of chocolate intermingled with hinst of coffee come through.Tasty enough with burnt malt flavours dominating.

3.1
Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2008
Bottle, special procurement. Amber color. Not quite a dunkel hue but looks pleasant enough. Lots of rising bubbles. Vanilla-forward nose. Some cream. Sweetish body. thin. Chocolate with metallic hop finish. Solid sweetness is rounded by a mildly hopped finish. Tastes a lot like a cream beer but not a bad effort.

hawthorne00 (4073) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle. Clear light brown with an small beige head that fades to nothing. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, nuts and grass. Sweetish with some nuts, coffee and chocolate, good balancing bitterness. Not really my sort of thing, but pleasant enough.

3.2
maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2011
Matso’s best beer as far as I’m concerned. Roasted malts and almonds smother the nose. Coffee, nuts, dark malts on the palate. Just a solid dark lager which is all you should be expecting

3.5
Davros (3258) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 15, 2011
Pours deep garnet with a large lasting head and rings of lacing. Nose shows lots of sweet malt with nutty and caramel characters at the forefront. Roasted malt adds some extra depth. There’s a faint oxidised not which mixes well with the rich malt. Flavours perfectly mirror the aromas. Maybe the roasted malt shows through a little stronger. Carbonation is pretty full on.
