Poured a dark orange red with some visible sediment, most of which settled quite fast. No strong aroma, flavours roast, coffee. An enjoyable ale.
Bottle in Sydney. Brown body. Sweet malty aroma. Pretty basic and typical brown ale. Ross1969 (7) - - JUN 22, 2017 does not count

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 (58) - - 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. macca147 (190) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2017
On tap at Harrys Hotel, Surry Hills. Pours a deep ink black with a thin tan head. Aroma: roasted malts dominate. Mild liquorice/cocoa/raisin notes. Not particularly aromatic for this style of beer. Taste: roasted malt is the dominant flavour. Very mild coffee beans and bitter cocoa flavour. Medium body. Low carbonation. Easy to drink and a decent dark ale, but not amazing. roflorence (109) - South Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2017
Dark, almost opaque colour in the glass with a short tan head. Strong malty nose with hints of chocolate and dried fruit. Very smooth on the palate, low to medium carbonation. Low bitterness. CurlyJoe (243) - AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2017
Mild aroma, some sweet malts. Taste starts clean and crisp, then some dark roasted flavours come out. Sweetness too. Slight lingering bitterness. phenom5 (16) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2017
Lovely malty taste and hop aromas - raisin, licorice, floral bouquet! Sweet fnish with bittering hops balance. Nice go to...
