COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Malrider69 (77) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2015
Pours black in colour with a thin coffee coloured head that dissipates quickly, making the beer look like flat cola. Aroma of roast coffee and sawdust. The taste is of mild coffee, roasted malt and is slightly bitter. There is a slight fizziness on the palate and finish is slightly bitter and only short-lasting. Overall a reasonable porter.

Muggus69 (1419) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2014
330mL bottle BB 13JUN2016 Claims to be a "cellar release" of sorts - sounds good! Certainly looks the part - pours a thick looking ruby body, a tan head lounges about atop without a care in the world. Nose is somewhat subdued, but suggests a very rich complex story about to unfold; dark chocolate, plums/prunes & dates, burnt caramel, some cakey/pudding sort of quality to it, and earthy/tobacco-y hops. Good weight on the palate, thick, chewy, low carbonation adding to the overall viscous nature. So much to enjoy here - cocoa, dark cooking chocolate, sticky date pudding, some charred notes, latte, some lovely dark fruit esters, and a hint of leafy, earthy hop. Finishes with a moderately firm bitterness, lingering for a good while. Excellent porter. Plenty of character, well rounded and enjoyable.

Maris (1121) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 3/11/2014. Pours the deepest of browns with a huge tan head (bottle gushed a bit on opening). The nose features lots of choc malt and a bit of caramel as well. The flavour features lots of chocolate, cocoa, some fudge, and hints of caramel and berries. A subdued bitterness counters the sweetness nicely. Has a creamy palate and was a touch over-carbed (no such issue with a previous bottle shared with my bro). A very nice porter.

Pyobon (1060) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2014
(Bottle) Very dark brown with a thin pale brown head. Nice rich aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, toast. Lovely mouthfeel, with excellent carbonation - booth smooth creamy and bright. Rich flavours whilst remaining refreshing. Taste starts with raisins / port and some gentle acidity. In the mid palate richer chocolate coffee creamy flavours develop. These transition into some acidity and pleasant dark bitter notes in the finish. There’s some slight smokey woody notes in there somewhere too. Very good porter.

Dervock (560) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2014
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 (777) - 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 (562) - 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 (115) - 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.
