Pours dark brown with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows chocolate and roasted malt alongside spicy characters, hints of cinnamon and booze.
Flavours are pretty eclectic. Lots of roasted malt with some faint cocoa, but also heavy grapefruit and pine. The finish is a little chalky/ashy, and there's an underlying sweetness that's almost cloying.
Carbonation seems a little high.
The mix of flavours is a little brash but otherwise a good beer.

330mL bottle from Slowbeer.

Chocolate brown with a large tight beige head. Great retention and plenty of lacing.

Plenty of coffee and light toffee malt, with lesser notes of nutmeg, vanilla and figs. Evident hoppy freshness that is vaguely herbal, but can't discern any specific aromas.

Oodles of chocolate upfront with a modicum of spice. Decent resinous pine presence. Nice enough but not overly inspiring.

Medium, slightly syrupy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a mild lingering bitterness.

Expected a much bigger showing from the hops. Instead, it's mostly a 'safe' brown ale.

Very dark, somewhat hazy brown colour with a small light tan head.

Rich and nutty aroma. Quite sweet. Some fruit.

Nutty malt. Moderate fruit. Some chocolate. Okay but something doesn't click.

Medium full body with moderately low carbonation. Okay.

Not my favourite beer. It lacks a little pizzazz.
