COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Had this a while back on tap at the Albion, Newcastle, Australia. Intense, lively bitterness in this one from memory, really nicely balanced. The way a black IPA should be hopped.

NBird (513) - 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 (1103) - 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 (1186) - 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.

Roasted nuts and coffee on the sniff. Dark malt, chocolate, liqueur plums with a hoppy bitter finish. Gets better after a few sips. 3.0std drks, 7.6%, 500ml, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Davros (2408) - 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.

Nice dark beer, with a nice fruity smell. A lot of coffee in the taste, but just not picking up the Belgium yeast due to that heavy coffee.

Chrishrt30 (102) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2015
Pours a cola like dark beer with a fluffy off white head. Huge aroma upfront, citrusy, boozy and full of rich coffee and malt juiciness. The taste is thick and creamy. The fruitiness and tart yeast give great balance to the juicy citrus hops, nice levels of resins, some good alcoholic raisins and chocolate. So many flavours mixed into 1 beer. The finish is still thick, sweet and juicy, but a nice hop and coffee bitterness help balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle. Pours very dark brown with a tiny tan head, mild coffee aroma, just the right amount of fruit hop flavours with a mild hint of chocolate. Great stuff
