330ml bottle from the hive. Dark brown, thin tan head. Lightly hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Thinnish body, medium carbonation. Bitter finish. Good, but not the amazing Brodies style I recall from last year.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from The Beerhive. Dark brown body with a thin beige head. Light lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, burnt caramel and aniseed. Flavour of coffee and citrus. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture. Faint carbonation. Sits closer to a Stout than an IPA, although it lacks the depth of a great Stout and the hop character of a great IPA.

Pours almost black with a light beige bubbly head which forms a layer on the beer. Aroma is slight citrus along with chocolate and dried fruit notes. Taste is initially dark chocolate bitter followed by slight citric accentuations, with a mellow roasty finish. This is somewhere between medium and full bodied.
