Pours three fingers of tan head on a dark brown-red colored body.
The aroma has roasted malt and a little cocoa power. Nice.
The taste is dark roasted malt, bitter chocolate and a little cream.
The texture is soft and fizzy.
Excellent flavors and smell.

500ml bottle. Pours a dark rusty brown with a medium lasting beige head. Aroma and taste is sweet dark caramel malt and grains, some mild dark fruit notes and yeast with light bitterness. Palate is a medium body, smooth with good carbonation. The finish is dark malted grains and caramel, some toasted malt and yeast, with mild dark fruit flavor and soft bitterness on the end for balance. A very good caramel malt character. Overall this is a well balanced, tasty and enjoyable brew any time, very good brew.

Pours opaque dark cola brown. The one inch khaki head remains as a thick cap on top that leaves thick curtains of shimmering lace.

The smell is of biscuit bread, grains, faint citrus and the earthy hint of freshly cut grass.

The taste is of roasted caramel malt with faint hop bitterness and citrus accents.

The texture is medium bodied with high carbonation.

Grainy and earthy enough to satisfy the lager drinkers with caramel and molasses notes that will please brown ale fans and enough hop bitterness to keep the IPA lovers happy. Easy drinking and accessible to fans of any beer style.
