COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Limited cellar Release.
Wicked Elf Porter is Robust in style. It is craft brewed using the finest Australian, German and British malted barley and classic English hops to balance.
Overall, rich, full bodied, seductively smooth and sessionable, yet complex and rewarding. It is a perfect winter ale although popular demand suggests it will be available at other times of the year.
Bottle conditioned.

Bottle _ pours black with small tan head. Lots of toasty. Toasty choc malt. Taste is bittersweet up front with a long bitter finish. Smooth creamy mouthfeel.

Great Porter. Prefect beer for a Winter's night. Nice head, almost a sweet espresso like taste. A full bodied Porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beer-yum (439) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 14, 2014
A beer from a small brewer that punches above its weight. Smooth, full bodied flavour makes this a beer I’d happily have another of.

bmeup (509) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2014
Dark brown with gold tinges, head vanishes. Woody whisky oak, mocha, earthy. Dry coffee bitterness, not heavy though, with a body on the medium side and a good finish and length.

Kurtos (95) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a nice deep Black with a small 1 finger nail head. Aroma. A sweet nutty espresso smell. Taste. Strong Licorice up front, backed by some espresso and a general roastiness, with an annoying bitterness throughout.

I must say that I'm quite a fan of TLBC Christmas Ale quad. This one pours almost pitch black with only the mildest ruby highlights and a big 3 finger pillowy head that quickly becomes a thick film on top of the beer. Not a huge amount of lacing though. Aroma is roasted malts, espresso, Vegemite, brown sugar. Taste is exactly the same, with the Vegemite being a bit more prominent. Mouthfeel is quite thin & drinkable, although I think a few would 'stack up' so to speak. Not bad at all but not one of the greats. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ALLOVATE (2349) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2013
Cellar temperature and into a snifter. Heavy sediment layers the base of the glass; the beer as black as night. Two inches of rocky tan foams settles in atop and leaves a thick weave. The nose is very earthy and dusty with notes of mocha, kelp, Biltong jerky and sautéed mushrooms – a little odd! Very sweet palate in contrast to the aroma; a mixture of burnt sugar and toffee, cola beer and chocolate. Astringent, sourish malt finish, drying out as it goes. Nice body and soft and gentle in mouthfeel. Lasting, woody, dark malt and dark chocolate flavour. Low to no malt or hop bitterness, which could have ramped it up a bit. Warming, even with the modest ABV. Overall not too bad an ale. Certainly kept me interested. Good stuff!! (33cL, BB 14/08/14, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

I had this beer at the pumphouse in Darling harbour, when they had a tap takeover. A very nice beer.

Jado (492) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown - almost black - but with a few red brown highlights at the edges. Cream coloured head starts off quite pillowy but collapses to a collar pretty quickly. Strong aromas of dark and dried fruits - prunes, currants, raisins - along with dark chocolate and a touch of coffee. Fruit is up front in the taste, before a roasty bitterness come through. Black coffee at the back end. Lingering finish with cocoa beans and chocolate. Like it a lot.
