Prescription 12 is the 12th commercial offering from Doctor’s Orders. It sees our Black IPA (Mind Warp) in a Belgian guise (Belgian yeast and Belgian Candi Syrups). This gives Prescription 12 additional complexity in aromatics, body and flavour. The malty, biscuit, toasty flavours are backed with hints of dark fruits before the lingering addictive bitterness finishes off the mouth-feel.

Black with a decent tan head. Roasty, yeasty funk, maybe slight aniseed aroma. Roasty, dark malt bitterness, a little chocolate and coffee

ANZUShophunter (163) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2015
On tap at Prince Alfred Hotel, Ipswich. A dark black brew with very little head. Hops, yeast and earthy notes on the nose. These blend with the roasted malt on the palate. A nice brew, but I fear I sampled from the end of the keg.

Muggus69 (1685) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2015
500mL bottle from Slowbeer. BB 08 2016 Damn fine looking beer - near black body, opaque, holding a big creamy pale tan head. Solid hop-driven aroma - grass, citrus, peach, touch of phenolic spice, treacle and charcoal. Body quite creamy, smooth, Belgian yeast character shining through. Palate is an intriguing mix of spicy, grass, citrus hops, subtle roast & biscuity malt, with a touch of phenolic yeast spice and dark fruit undertones. Bitterness quite firm, dry well-attenuated finish. Different take on a Black IPA, works well.

NBird (579) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2015
Looks.. Black cola brown, med- large head. Smells..cacao nibs, choc, a little malty, belgian quad kinda candy, a little wheat and a little less hop. Tastes..the front is great with a decent hop tropical and piney hops that then gets lost amongst bits of coffee/choc/cacao. Still some resinous bitterness left in this.. Pretty good apart from the cacao is a bit too present for me.

Pyobon (1180) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2015
(Bottle) Fantastic looking beer - black with ruby hints and big dense tan head. Pleasant complex aroma, mainly pine hoppiness but with some earthy, cheese and coffee hints. Medium body with plentiful soft carbonation. The tastes starts with some nice gentle sweetness - berries, candy. There’s dark chocolate notes in the mid-palate which steadily develops a complex bitterness which is hop and dark coffee / burnt bitter. Doesn’t quite work for me, the bitterness is too aggressive and dark.

floydian1 (1250) - FNQ, Australia, - MAR 1, 2015
500ml bottle (BBE 12/15). Dark brown pour with ruby red hue and a medium sized beige head. Toasty caramel malts dominate the nose with notes of red berries, brown sugar, and subtle yeasty earthy notes. Palate is medium bodied and slick with moderately sweet flavours and a light spicy dryish bitter finish with perhaps the barest hint of coffee. Very drinkable and yet quite complex. A winner.

Davros (2460) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2015
Pours black with a large off white head. Nose shows figs, chocolate, sultanas as well as piny and resinous hops. Mixture of black ipa and old ale in terms of flavours. Soft roast and piny hops but also some figs and port-like notes.
