Tap at Slow Beer Fitzroy, Melbourne. Poured a clear dark brown with little life. The aroma is big hazelnut vanilla chocolate. The flavour is moderate sour, light sweet with a smooth, rich tart red berry fruit, light sweet chocolate palate. Medium bodied with flat carbonation.

Nutty and chocolate. Sweet with a medium body, nut notes chocolate and malts . Pink waifer nose apparent. Mjollnir (414) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 1, 2016
750mL bottle. Foam bomb on opening. Poured opaque black with a ridiculously large head. Strong aroma of chocolate and roast, some sweet vanilla and nuttiness. Mild sweetness and bitterness, strongly roasty with a bit of acidity. Medium body with strong, initially excessive carbonation. Quite creamy as a result, with a lingering burnt bitter finish. Good stuff, mostly, but a significant proportion of the bottle ended up in the sink thanks to the crazy carbonation. Muggus69 (2673) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2016
750mL champagne bottle from Beer Exchange
Espresso head atop a opaque black body.
Milk chocolate on the nose dominates, a distinct sweet nuttiness, marshmallow, vanilla.
Body is rich, silky, sweet, slightly gritty texture, low carbonation.
Sweet body, lots of chocolate, vanilla & toasty nutty sort of undertones. Finishes with a lactic sort of twang.
Sort of expecting more richness - this is not all too different from the original. beer-yum (1866) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 29, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2017 Massive nutty chocolate aroma in a black pour. Lovely sour/sweet chocolate body with a ’to die for’ moreish finish. Easily the best Australian craft beer I’ve had - and easily makes up for all the ’little different from a lager’ "craft" brews I’ve tried.

Hazelnut choc aroma. Black with tan head. Taste is thin for a big stout. Average stuff but not awful. KansaiBeerLvrs (5305) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 13, 2016
Pitch black with a tan head. The aroma is nutty with a spicy chocolate edge. A somewhat raspy carbonation assaults my tongue with a tasty honey nut chocolate flavor. Very nice in an aggressive way. mrjez (660) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAY 13, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2016 750ml bottle from March, shared at Craft Cafe Imazato. Pours a rich deep brown, very heady bottle, foamy fizzy tan head. Nice aroma of hazelnut and chocolate, Belgian yeast, slight vanilla. Taste is similar, quite nutty. Feel is different to how I remember the original Praline - more quad style booze in the finish, fluffy prickly mouthfeel. Very enjoyable. Maris (1575) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2016
UPDATED: APR 5, 2016 From a 750ml bottle on 1/4/2016. Exploded outof the bottle pouring close to black with a big dark, tan head. The nose is very nice, with milk chocolate,hazelnuts and coffee. Take a sip and some sharp roasted malt is the first that hits, followed by a massive,almost creamy sweetness - milk chocolate again, some caramel and a good dash of vanilla. There’s a hint of coffee and dark fruit in the mix too. The palate is super creamy but is spoiled a bit by being over-carbed. All up, it’s definitely a nice dessert beer, but it lacks a bit of subtlety for mine, and is probably just a bit too sweet. And at 28 bucks a pop, it doesn’t represent much in the way of value. Pretty bottle though. gam (4045) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2016
