3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deep brown with thin cream head. Aromas of dark choc, roasty malts and nuts. Chocolate leads into a relatively hollow mid palate, appropriate for the style, and then a pine bitterness leading into a long nutty, chocolate and roast malt finish. Slightly over carbonated

Tap. Dark brown, offwhite lace. Caramel aroma. Coffee roast and caramel malt flavor, sparkly citric and grassy hop counterpoint. Medium body, would’ve been sticky if not for the firework hops - these guys know how to clear your palate, great!!

on tap at the hop factory in newcastle. plenty of reddish tinge on brown, supersplotchy head; aroma of musty chocolate syrup; modest bitterness, hints of chocolate crackles, some alcohol and vanilla showing, giving it an almost bourbon-barrel aged quality; curious and pretty drinkable

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.

I think this is probably the most enjoyable Prickly Moses beer i’ve 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

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
