Tailpipe is a big ass brown ale. Like a classic 1950ís American automobile, Tailpipe is bold, brash and great to look at yet wholly inappropriate for modern times. This beer is fully loaded with German Pilsner Malt and a selection of roasted malts. Aggressively hopped, this beer is not your daily drive - itís the beer you take out for a spin when you want to show off to your mates.

330ml bottle from Plonk. Pour is effervescent dark red-copper-brown with big rocky head. Aroma has hops and dark malt. Rich malt sweetness up front, then hop aroma and bitterness, and mild dark malt on the end. Good example of an American brown.

Very dark almost black poor with a minimal off white head. bitter coffee and slight chocolate come through in aroma. flavor is slightly dry and bitter. Feels more like a porter to me than a brown ale but not at all bad.

Tap at the local taphouse. Pours a reddish brown with small off white head. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, and some vanilla. Taste is powdered chocolate upfront leading to a bitter finish. Works well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I think this is probably the most enjoyable Prickly Moses beer iíve had. Aroma is mainly chocolate aromas with a dark brown cola colour and thin tan head. Flavour is big lashings of chocolate malt and a pleasant bitter finish. Just a hint of alcohol heat in the finish

Not quite as big ass as the brewer promises, and indeed maybe a touch light weight given the abv, but plenty of easy flavours here. Roast, bitter chocolate, icing sugar, and some fruit cake, the latter a give away to the higher than usual alcohol. Good effort and one of the better beers from the house.

330ml bottle. Looks more like a stout than a brown ale but whatever it is it sure looks good. Deep dark brown in colour wih a consistent layer of foam coating the surface. The aroma is a real mixture of chocolate, malt, licorice and something fruity. The label says "big ass brown ale" and this is reflected in the flavour with some mild bitterness and a long sweet finish. One of the best, if not the best, Australian brown ale I have had.

Bottle 330ml from Purvis. Full marks, it tastes like an imperial stout. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, liquorice, and caramel. Taste is sweet and bitter, with very long length. Palate is velvety, and full bodied. Dark brown, with a frothy head.

Bottle 33 cl, Slowbeer. Pours dark brown with a huge creamy tanned head leaving lots of lace. Aroma is chocolate, malty, slightly roasted, sweetih, bready and molassis. Flavor is a bit acidy, roasted, malty, bitter, pungent and a bit fruity. Very drinkable and has a great malty base. Finishes bitter and malty.

Bottle. Pours a very drak brown with medium light tan coloured head. Aromas of roasted malt, dark caramel and a little vanilla, Light resiny hop aromas. Flavours are pretty much the same. Fair amount of caramel sweetness and light bitter hop finish. Not too bad.
