On-tap at the Local Taphouse, Darlinghurst.
Pours a deep, dark brown colour, with a pleasantly thick body, although it doesn't have a lot of static carbonation when swirled. Head grows out of the body, a thick and frothy ochre-coloured crown. Lacing is ace, and the head takes a long while to settle. Looks good.
Smells hoppy like buggers - very American in aroma. Lots of sweet orange, and a little pepper, maybe a touch of roastiness, but the dominant character initially is citrus. After a bit of a swirl, some nice sweet chocolate characters start to rise up. It's that nice IBA melange that makes the style so unique.
Very smooth on the palate. Here there's still a dash of candied orange, but the roastiness comes forward a lot more. Overcooked nuts come through with a dark character on the back, while the citrus sits on the top. It's like there's two separate beers in here, that are not integrated at all. But I guess that's what you expect in this interestingly odd style. Feel is great though, lovely and smooth.
Yeah, a drinkable brew, and one with the characters you want in the style. Nice.

A - Pretty much black with a 3cm beige head that seemingly wants to hang out forever, but slowly falls away leaving a lot of lace.
S - Floral and piney hops with a slight citrus touch. Some light chocolate notes.
T - The taste is also pretty damn hoppy with the piney qualities dominating the floral and citrus. Chocolate and light coffee from the carafa is obviously there but not too strong.
M - Medium bodied with a sticky, resinous feel. A pretty hefty bitterness.
D - Not something to session at 7% but a very well made American Black Ale. Well worth trying and I'll be buying more while I can.

This brew is actually 7%ABV and it pours a dark,dark cola colour with decent carbonation that leaves behind a creamy two finger head that slowly recedes to layer of smog across the top that stays with some little sporadic lacing,the aroma is basically like a nice stout with hints of dark milky coffee,peaty malts and some dark fruits,it has a nice medium bodied mouthfeel which is very smooth and the first taste i get is dark expresso followed by a dark coccoa sensation and nicely finished off with a real dark fruit bitterness that really rounds out the sweet mocha tastes first encountered and overall its an interesting drop that i could drink more than the one of and recommend you try if you see it as by looking at the brown bottle with the little white label bearing a little description about the brew i dont think its going to be a regular on their lineup cheers.

Well well, long awaited here it is.
Looks killer. Very dark brown nearly black with a coffee colored head that stays around leaving plenty of lacing.
Great aroma. Piney, resiny and some spicy zesty citrus.
Taste is much the same, but some richer dark malt flavours that were hinted at in the nose make themselves known. The sweetness found in regular beast is complimented beautifully by the slightly roasty flavours of the dark malt. This is my kinda black ipa. Super drinkable and balanced.
