330ml botte from Slow Beer. Worth getting this beer just for the label never mind the beer. Yet another collaborative brew and this one pours a light back tea colour with a thinnish layer of tan foam. Spiced fruit aromas of prunes, raisins and plums are strong and invite you in to and take a drink. Big, bold and bad ass in the mouth with mouth numbing flavours and very lively on the palate. Aniseed is strong in the flavour and aftertaste.

A dark brown saison pours with a small head. Smells of some roasted action, chocolate and fruity farmhouse ale. Tastes like a farmhouse ale, with more medium cooked fruit through a roast/toast finish. Have had a few of these now.

Very interesting nose - reminds me of a dark lambic but it then becomes apparent that its the spicy saison yeast reacting with the dark goodness. Interesting taste, tart, spicy, spritzy, saison like, with faint dark malty tones. Kiss of peated smoke as it fades away. But super dry as expected with the saison yeast. Lovely beer, impressed. Realise that it is a Saison and you will understand and loooove this beer.

varanid99 (461) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2012
Mid-dark brown, with thin but persistent head. Chocolate, yeasty, funky aroma. It’s very heavily carbonated, almost like a soft drink, and has a cola-y, chocolatey flavour. Some red wine style character - leathery, maybe. Very different beer, not bad, would love to resample it when I’ve got a bit more knowledge about beer.

Pyobon (893) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2012
(Bottle) Clear mid brown with good beie head. The aroma is very unusual, and somewhat challenging. The dominant aroma is rather funky and I assume comes from the "farmhouse yeast" as it Edmonds me of a wild yeast fermented Belgian lambic. There additionally some apple and maybe smokey hints, the latter are presumably from the peat. Full body and medium carbonation with nice smooth almost creamy mouthfeel. The taste is as unusual and challenging as the aroma. It is dominated by by a collection of interesting flavours which are not immediately appealing, but could possibly become acquired tastes. I detect leather, peat, tobacco, maybe gunpowder. This is then overplayed on some pleasant rich sweetness of a molasses or burnt toffee nature and a hint of apples. Overall a fascinating and unusual beer but would take some effort to acquire a taste for it. Very pleased I have tried it, but it won’t be a regular.

Bottle at the Atticus Finch. Great cidery beer. Aromas of chocolate, apple, and caramel. Taste is sweet, with sour and bitter notes, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Black, with a frothy head.

Maris (955) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2012
From a 330ml bottle on 18/7/2012. Pours a cloudy cola colour with a small head. Has a strange spicy, slightly medicinal smell, featuring ginger and yeast. The flavour is sweet with some chocolate, cola, fruitcake and berries, with a slightly sour citrus tang at the end. This is a bit of a weird beer which, though quite interesting, doesn’t quite come together for me.

ComradeK (978) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a small off-white head which fades quickly and does not leave much lacing. The aroma is quite grainy with some treacley notes, but there is also an odd, slightly sickly sweetness to it. Mild peppery hops up front give way to a cola flavour, which is followed by a thick, almost molasses-like sweetness. There is a touch of drinking chocolate towards the finish, which is itself quite bland, with some very faint leafy notes. This is not the most exciting beer I have had. It is a touch on the dull side, and feels just a bit over-sweet. I have had a lot worse, but this is not exactly inspiring.
