An all malt ale, Sleeman Original Dark is brewed from a combination of roasted barley malts, English Aroma hops, and deep well water. Its unique flavour has become a trademark in the Sleeman lineup.

Clearish light amber appearance with a weak head of small bubbles that lasts about 10 seconds in the glass. Sweet aroma, vague sense of a Twix bar in chocolate and caramel notes. Dead body, watery and sweet with caramel flavors early but little hop sense or moxie in the mouth. Finishes clean (i.e. vacant) with little aftertaste, but nothing upfront is very inviting to sip again. Like the Honey Brown Lager, there's not much to make me want to buy this again, though it would be drinkable to me if offered. (508 characters)
