Aroma biscuit, cocoa, vanilla, toffee, and a hint of coffee. 3.75

From a 16oz can, undated. Purchased at the brewery 07/12/21. Served in a willi becher glass.

Pours cola colored with a scant finger of soft creamy head. Retention is fairly decent, leaving a fizzy cap, creamy collar and a barely rousable, thin sheet of lacing that still leaves concentric rings down the inside of the glass.

A fairly robust nose, reminiscent of molasses-sweetened oatmeal bread. And heathbar maybe a bit more as it warms up.

Taste is in line with the aroma, if a little thinner and toastier than expected. Toasted dark bread and chicory, caramel cremes, apples, whipped cream, and a hint of vegemite.

Feel is slick and creamy, medium-thin bodied with fine, bright carbonation. The creaminess accumulates on the palate.

Overall, a very nice brown, mildly sweet and roasty with some chicory-like bitterness. Creaminess is notable in every aspect, aroma, taste and mouthfeel.

(Review added 07/12/21).
