I purchased this at Brass Rail Deli in Campbelltown, enjoyed chilled in a goblet from the 12oz brown bottle.
The color is deep brown with translucent clarity with crimson hue at base of the glass...the head comes and goes and leaves a ring of tiny pale tan beads. The smell is very fruity -as in dried fruit with woody raisin type aroma. The smell has a light hint of dark cherry. The feel is thin with moderate carbonation with light sweetness and mild phenolic almost medicinal tinge bt the sweetness hides that and finish is lightly spiced.
The flavor is a mix of woody hops with raisin-like taste from the malt and yeast mixing with a strange herbal element that comes of as nutty and slightly earthy with subtle fig-like aspect which is more like dark toffee but not that sweet. The flavor has a mild yeast taste I can't place or perhaps it is the hemp. Overall I like this but would probably not get this again, there are many brown ales I prefer to this in the same abv range.
