3.98/5 rDev +2.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: Dark brown with ruby highlights; moderate, light brown head with good retention and lacing. Creamy. This is a pretty beer.
S: Lots of toasty, nutty notes, with some milk chocolate thrown in for good measure. Smells hoppier than I would expect for a brown ale, but this isn't deterrent. Most of the character in the nose derives from the malts, which are definitely sweet.
T: More complex that I expected from a brown ale. A bit hoppier than I expected, also, but this is probably just from my recent stint in Europe and its decidedly hop-lacking beers. The caramel malt is definitely coming through here.
M: Slightly more watery than I'd like, but definitely clean. Almost creamy, but not quite. Carbonation is minimal.
D: Definitely easy to drink, especially for the alcohol percentage. Would be a good session beer.

3.79/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Bottle: a big solid 650mL brown bottle with an okay semi-macro label.
Appearance: pours out a dark brown with highlights visible against the light. A tan head pops on the top with good retention and lacing.
Aroma: heavy caramel and molasses dominate here with a touch of balancing earthen hops.
Taste: plenty of milk chocolate with some roast coffee behind. Some brown sugar and molasses add to the ensemble.
Aftertaste: a touch more brown sugar on the finish, but very little bitterness from the hops to meter it out.
Mouth feel: medium in body with a lower- to- moderate carbonation. Quite smooth in texture, but I think it could have done with a tad more carbonation.
Overall: a good combination of rough coffee and smooth chocolate, with some sharp molasses and brown sugar. The only thing holding this brew back for me by far is the price of AU$13 a bottle. A bit steep...
