Tried on-tap at the GABS Festival in Melbourne. Only now getting around to entering my reviews from the festival, some months down the track.
Pours a deep red-brown colour with some clarity of body and decent weight behind it. Head is a solid ring of beige. Lacing looks decent enough down the glass, and there's some pleasant carbonation when it's tilted. Looks pretty good.
Nose is very mild. Slight musty grain character with just a suggestion of dark fruit around the edges and a hint of chocolate. But mild sums it up: disappointing for a beer weighing in at 6.8% ABV.
Light toasty characters on the front of the palate along with a sight banana or other sweet, fragrant fruit hint. Middle is quite clean with roast coming through to provide a crinkly top note. Some dark fruit does come through on the back along with a suggestion of booze that feels a little anaemic and weak. Feel is extremely light for what it is.
Overall: it's OK, but it's really quite weak. Against the gamut of beers which were at GABS it didn't stand strong, but it's probably alright in isolation.

Pours a darkish brown colour, clear with a nice head of beige foam. Looks nice.
Smells fairly spicy. Slight caramel malt base with a touch of cinnamon and maybe some coriander/clove combination. Nice piquancy to it but smells more on the savoury side of spicy than sweet, which is what I'd expect from the style.
Taste is similar. More of that cinnamon/coriander blend, sort of sour spicy on the back. Again malt base is light but all ont he front, doesn't fully continue to the back although there is also a warming booze touch on the back of the mouthfeel. Fair bit of spice but it almost tastes like it's yeast-related? Tastes almost like it's just 'incidentally' spicy rather than it all coming from a nice added spice mix. Or maybe it's just I don't really agree with the spice mix used.
Not a bad drop, but would like more balance and a little more malt presence.
