Bottle - interesting subtle flavours - get the modern take on brown ale (hopped up some).... get the prickly pear sourness... get a hint of chilli (would have like a lot more) - smooth easy drinker - needs some bite... some thrust which is usually in GP brews but alas not here. Like it don’t love it. Dredd (982) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2017
Light brown with thin head, slight chocolate/cocoa aroma. Initial flavor has some hit front the habenero, but moves to fine chocolate with short bitter finish and lingering spice from the pepper. trentacle (32) - NEW ZEALAND - NOV 27, 2016
Gotta love GP’s concept beers. I initially anticipated the iced tea they imbibe in Texas. Then the cocktail full of different spirits. But after tasting I was perplexed. I had to look online to discover the reference to: "oil that is, black gold, texas tea". Ah... Oil! That’s it. But thinner. Suddenly the gas station on the front makes so much sense.

500ml bottle 12/7/2017
Brown color with tan head.
Hoppy malt aroma.
Pine hop resin upfront with malty backbone and a touch of chili at the back.
Nice one GP. Hoponmate (309) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 22, 2016
Dark slight brown ale. Chocolate dark malted notes with a slight chili finish. The most interesting brown ale i have ever had.

650ml bottle. Aroma is chilli heat, nuts and biscuits. Flavour starts all brown ale with a little chilli to finish. Essentially this is a really good brown ale with a novel spicy finish. Davros (3362) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2016
Pours black with a small head.
Nose shows bready and toasty malt, soft nutty notes and a hint of caramel.
Flavours include toast and bready malt, nutty notes, faint caramel. Very faint chilli in the finish. mcberko (20305) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2016
On tap at The Local Melbourne, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out notes of roasted malt and light piney hops. Flavour is along the same lines and more like a black IPA, with light roast and gentle piney hops. Well-balanced with a gentle mouthfeel. Solid for the style.

650ml bottle. Pours a deep brown. Slight malt nose with hints of spice. The taste opens with coffee and chocolate again with a hint of spice. Lingering mouth feel with more spice again. mkel07 (6576) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle from Wine Emporium 191115. Great brown ale but I wasn't expecting the spicy finish. Ah just read the label on the bottle - that spice I'm getting would be the prickly pear. Love the way these guys push the boundaries.
