Inspired by the mysterious legend of big black cats that roam the Victorian bush, this beer is an India Black Ale. Like an India Pale Ale, Black Panther IBA is a full bodied beer that’s rich in hop bitterness. A generous addition of North American hops both in the boil and in the fermenter impart a strong citrus aroma. Caramelised black malt imparts a subtle burnt flavour to this rare beer. Savour now.

Medium body, zesty carbonation, balanced malt complexity with a perceivable medium level of bitterness.

Malrider69 (42) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - JUL 31, 2014
Pours with a well defined head, but probably slightly over-gassed. Slight taste of coffee. Appropriately hopped and sits well on the palate. Another high quality beer from Prickly Moses. They really do deserve recognition for thinking outside the box when producing beers that are not run-of-the-mill.

Brenhophead (569) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 29, 2013
330mL bottle. Pours deep dark brown (held up to the light) with a fluffy caramel coloured head. A very nice aroma of resinous pine, dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans (aroma reminds me of Kooinda IBA). Very rich yet smooth medium body flavour. The light coffee/choc notes mingle well with the resinous pine and fruity notes. Complex and full of flavour.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2013
A bit better than serviceable but not outstanding. Dry and roasty and some noticeable bitterness. Modern hop treatment here, perhaps at the expense of typical black beer character. As good as most locals.
