Tap at Chapel Farm. Pours a pitch black body with a creamy off black head. Aroma just explodes with passionfruit and citrus fruits backed by slight chocolate undertones. Taste is pretty much the same just a really fruity beer so easy to drink and hard to put your glass down. Not overly bitter and the chocolate notes make it really smooth. Its like a black hop hog. Wish they bottled this beauty. One of my favs

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2017 330 ml bottle from Feral Brewery direct! Pours a dark opaque black with some off white froth which disappears quickly but leaves sticky lacing in the glass. Aroma starts with tropical and citrus fruits, just what the doctor ordered with the dose of Citra hops, but is followed by a more biscuity malty nose. Taste is bittersweet grapefruit and pine, but fruity sweetness predominates. Carbonation is just right, as in all Feral brews, enough for a bite and enhancing mouthfeel, but not too much as to leave you bloated.

330ml bottle. Pours a jet black with a solid tan head. Aroma: Roasted malt, mild coffee, citrus, tropical notes. Taste: Roster malt, citrus, toasted bread, coffee, very mild aniseed, tropical flavours. Thin to medium bodied. Moderate bitterness. Oily and resinous texture. Moderate carbonation. Complex flavour balance. Nice beer, not quite ro my liking but still good.

Dredd (975) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2017
This one doesn’t do it for me at all. I think the hop/style combo is all wrong. Weird grapefruit meets malt is all too funky for my liking, almost smells cheesy. Pour is oily black with tan head. Flavour is upfront rich malts but the finish is kind of soapy. Not good at all.
