Medium brown, bubbly head, light toffee and cassia aroma. Star anise, cassia and a hit of dark sugars. Still fairly light bodied, too. Ends up fairly warming, with a hit of crackery malts, toast, and a splash if alcohol.

On tap at Irish Murphys Hobart. Rating from February 2014. Awesome beer that hits the spot and spreads warmth through the whole body.

This is a beauty, easily the best beer i tried on my Tassie trip. Dark spicey roasty chocolate malty warming gentle bitterness perfect head and retention. Consumed on the deck of a cabin at Cradle Mountain where the temperature was 8C and the beer was 12C. Credit to the brewer, cheers Willie.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2013
Opaque and black when poured. Excellent head retention. So many complex flavours at once. The chocolate and sweetness hits first, then the spices and finally the bitterness. Drink after a meal, as it would overpower whatever is being eaten. Excellent as a dessert during the winter. Warming during a cold evening. A winner.

750ml bottle. Pours jet black with a medium-sized lasting beige head with a faint greenish hue. I get vegetables, peppers, dark chocolate, coffee, burnt sugar and liquorice on the nose. Lovely velvety smooth palate with quite marked and (for me) pleasant dry bitter flavours. Finishes dry and warming. Medium to fullish body but not overly rich and easily drinkable. Another winner from Seven Sheds.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 24, 2010
750mL. Pour is clear cola ruby with big carbonation. Looks near black in the glass. A tan, mocha head develops with good retention and lace. Aroma is fresh, roasted malt.; burnt caramel, slight black olives, salty brine and pimento, slight tar. Taste is milk stout like, some chalky fresh malt like The Duck-Rabbit Porter from North Carolina. But as it warms it becomes watery, exhibiting some messy tar, burnt plastic. Pretty bitter with some sweet cola and burnt character. Disappointing.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2010
draught at Taphouse, Darlingurst. Pours a dark brown, with a thick light brown head. Was not expecting much, but really enjoyed this one. As someone said in their rate, not too much in terms of spice, but the chocolate and sweet malts came through strong. The alc % was disguised well also.

Bottle 750ml. Great and subtle beer. Aromas of butter, chocolate, and flowers. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and average duration. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Dark brown, with a frothy white head.
