A Festival beer and our late-Autumn seasonal. We always go experimental with our mid seasonal releases, but when it also ties in with the Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular then we give you the twist on the twist. Using the Prescription 12 Elixir (Rum barrel aged Belgian Black IPA) from Spring 2012 as inspiration, we sourced used Scottish Whiskey barrels from the Nøgne Ø/Bridge Rd Aurora Borealis collaboration and partially aged our Belgian Black IPA in them. The result ? A multi-dimensional beer designed especially for you the Uber Beer Connoisseur that if you could take this prescription from Doctor’s Orders intravenously you would. It is black with solid bitterness, Belgian yeast and candi syrup complexity with barrel induced nuances of oak, peat and booze. Enjoy at 10-12 degC and you’ll be able to assimilate with Belgium, Scotland, USA and Australia simultaneously.

Pours black with a deep red tinge in the transparency. Moderate sized dense tan head. Charred wood aromas, peat and some vanilla sweetness. Taste has bitter toffee and cocoa, oak and a little treacle and vanilla sweetness. Has some complexity that I can’t quite put my finger on, that i’m guessing comes from the barrel. Excellent mouthfeel and full bodied for the style. Love it

Great black colour. No head. Classic ipa smells and flavours tempered by a delicious chocolate malt mid palate. Slight smoke flavours moving back into a ipa dominated bitterness. On tap at union hotel, st peters. -
