3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a growler at Warners on the Bay. Apparently it’s a dark pilsner, pours almost black with a tan head, the hops flavour kicks in after the rich roasted malt. I liked it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a classy 500ml bottle euphemistically billed as a "black imperial pilsner" with BB 3/16. This is basically a hoppier schwarzbier with sweet toasty caramel malts on the nose and tongue before a medium-full lingering somewhat resinous dry hop bitterness takes over the palate. It pours cloudy dark red-brown with a rocky tan head. Hard to believe that this is still technically a lager.

Tap at Mane Liquor. I rate this. Bloody tasty with heavy coffee and a pleasing burnt bitter-like finish which lingers and drops off nicely. Sessionable as well which is impressive. Could drink a bit of this. Nice stuff

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Scratch Bar. Rating from April 2014. There are hints of smokiness that gets in your nose and throat and the beers pours a dark brown colour.

Confusing, but not a bad drop. The nose convinces you you’re about to drop into a double IPA, whilst the colour is saying malt, malt. Well, a bit of both don’t hurt. On tap at the Wheaty.

Not much on the aroma but looks good. Taste and palate lacking, slight roast but then has a wet cardboard finish. Average.

Had on tap at Murrays bar in Manly. A very nice and enjoyable beer. Not a session beer, but still a good beer.
