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.

danjs5 (188) - AUSTRALIA - APR 15, 2017
Light toasted, nutty and toffee malt aroma and upfront sweet malt flavours of the toasted and caramel type. Mild and easy drinking with some malt depth but fairly thin body also. Low on the bitterness. Pleasant enough.

rand (1670) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle 375 ml / Bier-Bienne (CH). Dark brown with a fleeting beige head. Aromas of caramel, dark fruits and prune, toast and cola. The mouth is very fluid, slight beer with notes of cola, nuts and roasted with a burnt tip.

At the bolltle-o. It has been brewed for a very long time. I first considered this a very flavoursome brew with its roasted malts dominating. Very little bitterness comes through. Now having sampled the wider selection of dark/brown/black ales on the market, the taste feels a bit tamer. Still a favourite tho; very much a session, year round drinkable beer. And.... you get very few hangovers from it. To all you home brewers, try brewing this and push up the bitterness with a good dose of Pride of Ringwood, a ripper!

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 (196) - 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.
