640 ml bottle. Dark brown body with a sudsy tan head that disappears almost completely. Aromas of coffee, Cherry and a bit of chocolate. Taste starts out with an unexpectedly bright sour cherry note before a strong note of fresh black coffee kicks in. Some soft fresh fruit - pear maybe - at the end. Body is a bit light and the carbonation a bit too vigorous for the style but not a bad beer by any means.
640ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a small light tan head, which fades fairly quickly and leaves a little lacing. Bacon, chocolate and berry notes make up the aroma. Mild floral and herbal hops up front give way to smooth milk chocolate and a little savouriness in the mid-palate. Brewed coffee to finish. A satisfying dark ale.

Bottle - pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is smoky sweet crystal malt. Taste is mix of roast malt and sweetness up front with a mild dry roast malt finish. Smells like old but tastes like a porter. Marc280 (165) - - MAR 17, 2017
Black with a thin head. Like the aroma, roasted malts and smoky. Quite thin mouthfeel and dry finish. Makes it easy to drink but I prefer this sort of beer with more body.

Bottle from Greenslopes Cellars 091016. I’m not convnced that this is a brown ale - the only brown ale qualities that it has is that it is dark brown in colour. Quite a tart bitter beer and thin in the mouth. Hints of chocolate and vanilla in the flavour. mcberko (20259) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2016
On tap at Willie the Boatman, pours a deep dark brown / near black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out toasted malt and bready malt. Flavour is quite light tasting, with dry cocoa and oats. Creamy mouthfeel but fairly boring. Meh. Bygers (1185) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2016
Bottle 0,640l. Pours a hazy to cloudy black color, tan head. Aroma of burnt wood and acidic notes. Acidic, roasted malts taste. Acidic aftertaste. Light mouthfeel, low bitterness.

Medium brown, medium head. Toasty nose with toffeeish character. Light toffee, soft, supple, moreish dark sugars. TedE (1565) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2015
640ml bottle into shaker. Strong nose of milk chocolate and stale bread. Almost opaque with a thin tan-coloured head, good lacing. No carbonation visible. Medium body with initial weak fruit cordial taste. Finish brings in a slight smokiness and more fruit. It tastes more like a porter but it looks like a stout. Not bad.
