Mild nutty aroma, red brown colour with a white lasting head. Quite smooth, not an awful lot of flavour but a sound choice at most pubs.

375ml bottle from Cellarbrations, Main beach, Surfers Paradise. Dark brown with OK head. Slight roasted character in nose. Mild bitterness and sweet chocolate malt palate. Drinkable.

Aroma of tarry smoke and toasted bread. Taste of dark chocolate and (vanilla?) smoke. I quite like this beer.

Kurtos (188) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2016
Bottle. Pours black not much else can be said here. Aroma. Mocha and Biscotti on the nose. Taste. Nothing Special, slight sweetness, slight roastiness and a slight coffee taste. Overall. I normally drink this on tap, probably just a touch better on tap but still alright poured from the bottle.

Found tasting Notes from my 2009 trip to Australia. Tasty ale. Some Caramel and fruit. Touch of a metallic aftertaste, but not enough to ruin it.

DavidAust (235) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2015
Looks like a flat coke in the glass. Minimal head. Overall an easy drinking dark ale. Nothing special and little sessional. Someone else thought it was like a Schwarzbier and Id have to go along with that but add that there roasted malts come through far more prominently than in a black lager.

Explained to me as "the coal miners beer". Still pretty good stuff, mildly sweet, caramel, nutty. Brown body with small airy head, easy drinker.
