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.

Kurtos (179) - Sydney, - 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.

wrlangin (136) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2016
330 ml bottle from Dan Murphy's in Brisbane. Drank at home. Pours black with light tan head. Medium to high fermentation for a porter. Good aroma of chocolate and maybe mild anise. Robust flavours of roasted malt, hops, and chocolate. Fairly complex beer. Very enjoyable! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mrjez (440) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 21, 2015
Pours a very dark brown with a decent tan head and done lacing. A nice smooth aroma of dark - coffee, chocolate, fruits, nothing standing out, balanced and roasted feel. The taste follows, a little fudge caramel sweetness, bitter on the end, helped by the coffee flavour. Itís not too heavy, quite easy drinking and flavourful, quite lively carbonation which could do with settling. Overall a worthy English porter, and one of the better Aussie ones.

Meilby (10890) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle 330ml @ Geokkjer
[Courtesy of bergstaden] Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and cooked vegetable. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long roasted, ash, caramel, chocolate finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is fizzy to over carbonated.

yngwie (16482) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle, shared by bergstaden. A more or less black one, topped by a creamy, fingerthick dark beige head leaving lacings. Itís lightly funky and sourish on the nose with lots of dark chocolate, some coffee and roasted malts. Some notes of cooked vegetables. Itís full-bodied and rather effervescent, with lots of dark chocolate flavors. Coffee and roasted malts too. Lasting roasted malts finish. Too much carbonation going on, else itís a fine brew. 151010

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 2, 2015
bottle from warners at the bay. rich dark brown, loads of froth eager to escape the bottle; given a chance to settle and warm it reveals a smooth prune and molasses aroma; some cocoa bitterness, hints of brandy cream and red berry; pretty tasty
