From a bottle at a burger joint in Melbourne. Pours an attractive dark orange brown with a few centimeters of head that soon melts away. Has a slightly sweet, toasty bread aroma with a well balanced bitterness, medium body and average carbonation. I could drink more of this.
At a tasting, thanks Dudu, small stable creamy bubbly head, clear quite dark brown color, light aroma and flavor of dark bread and chocolate, light bitterness, hints of ash quite dry. Fair and drinkable. DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 8, 2017
Bottle sample at a tasting at troubles' place. Thanks tomer. Deep amber-brown. Malt, caramel, toast, candy, a bit of fruitiness, sweetish, bitterish finish, medium-bodied. zvikar (6302) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - SEP 5, 2017

Nice balance between a stout and a larger. Has a bit of body but not so much that you can't have a few.

Bottle in Sydney. Brown body. Sweet malty aroma. Pretty basic and typical brown ale.

Pints at New England Hotel, Armidale NSW. Others are reviewing this like it’s supposed to be some kind of mouth-filling legend. That’s not what it’s designed to be. It’s an inoffensive entry point to darker ales with toasted malts which one can still easily enjoy with mates at the local. Excellent alternative to Toohey’s Old and infinitely better than mass-produced lagers. Keagan1984 (5) - - JUN 14, 2017 does not count
As with their pale ale there is nothing memorable about this. A dark ale should be richer. Too blend. Nice aroma of bacon, honey, mushroom and hints of woodfire. Looks good a well. Just let down on taste. I can barely remember it. RoJo28 (73) - - JUN 4, 2017
I've got nothing. It's good, I guess. Some nice tones hanging around, though they're about as memorable as that person I've forgotten or that place I think I've been.

Bottle at the Doubletree Hotel, Melbourne. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin off white head. The aroma is caramel malt, nutty, light sweet fruit. The flavour is moderate sweet, light bitter with a crisp, fruity, woody hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.
