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

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.

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. 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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows chocolate and roasted malt alongside spicy characters, hints of cinnamon and booze.
Flavours are pretty eclectic. Lots of roasted malt with some faint cocoa, but also heavy grapefruit and pine. The finish is a little chalky/ashy, and there’s an underlying sweetness that’s almost cloying.
Carbonation seems a little high.
The mix of flavours is a little brash but otherwise a good beer.
