Interesting beer, similar to a hoppy fruitcake!

aroma: fruitcake, peach, dates and caramelised orange predominate.

taste: citrus/orange, orange peel, toffee, apricot, spice, dark malt, fruitcake, dark orange fruit and slight brown sugar.

A tasty beer that is a mish mash of a few different beer styles that work reasonably well together.

2.33/5  rDev -28.7%

A - Pours a amber/slightly reddish colour. With small head that disappears looking rather flat

S - Awfully sweet, almost like a sweet white wine (Riesling), a hoppy aromas with some slight candy apple

T - Not as sweet as the nose. Slight hoppiness with a some caramel, toffee and a slight bitter but bland finish

M - Light bodied, very watery and flat

O - A very ordinary beer, not even close to a dark ale and I do not reckon I will finish it

Brewed for GABS festival in Melbourne, May 2014; tried there on tap. Official program lists ABV as 5.2% but not sure.

Pours an amber colour, with dense beige head that sinks quite quickly. Nice head, but overall looks a bit listless.

Smells sweet upfront, with a touch of vanilla and caramel before hops come through in a bigger way than I expected. US-style with lots of citrus fruit. Bit light on the malt compared to what I expected.

Again mildly hoppy on the palate. Caramel and vanilla notes upfront for alight malt start but yeah, US hops are a bit dominant for something advertised as a dark date ale. Expected darker, more complex sugars and it comes across quite dry and tangy. Not a bad beer though.

Decent, but not quite what I was expecting.
