PRICKLY MOSES BLACK LACE

Prickly Moses Black Lace. This beer was especially brewed for the Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular (GABS) 2014.

It’s a black elderberry bock (which is a black lager with some elderberries thrown in) and it’s 5.8% ABV.

Whenever I hear "elderberries" all I can think of is a scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail where a French soldier yells “I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!”.

I’m not usually a fan of beer with fruit in it but I’d thought I’d give it a go.

Very dark brown with a creamy, light brown head. Sweet chocolate malt and berry jam aroma. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Chocolate and little bit of roasted malt nicely balanced with a slightly tart blackberry, cherry and plum flavour. The flavour reminds me of the plum, cherry and chocolate flavours you find in some Shiraz.

A black forest cake in a beer. Something completely different.

 

7/10
