3.7/5 rDev -5.1%
Dark brown to mahogany in color. A thin bit of khaki colored head covers part of the top of the beer. Brussels lacing. I get mainly notes of chocolate,honey, and rooibos within the nose., but it is a bit overwhelmingly sweet. The mouth is a bit sticky and yet creamy. The taste is very malty and sweet with a dry malted finish.

4.15/5 rDev +6.4%
First full review I've taken the time to do in awhile. 750 ml bottled… sometime in 2012, poured into a DFH snifter.
Appearance: Deep mahogany. A thin off white thugh creamy head that lingers as the beer rests. Decent lacing.
Smell: Malty, sweet belgian sugar, yeast, dark fruit (plum, cherry)
Taste: Roasted malts, some herbal spice coming from the rooibos. Belgian candied sugar and honey sweetness and dark fruits, chocolate covered cherries come to mind and battle through the finish with what I can assume is the wattleseed that imparts a roasty grain like finish.
Mouthfeel: Complex with lots of strong flavors hitting at different moments. very good use of all ingredients, especially the honey, I feel like you can really pick out what trait each ingredient provides. The carb is very light and airy, which makes the beer feel lighter than it's 8% and dark flavors would lead on. Also gives it a great drinkability and smoothness but is still a good beer to perhaps share w/ others.
