Tried on-tap at the Welcome Hotel in Rozelle during their Beer Mimics Food event for Sydney Craft Beer Week. This was a collaboration between Dennis and the Welcome Hotel itself, and if I remember correctly has chianti or grappa or some other sort of Italian booze in it.
Pours a deep ruddy brown, solidly hazed with good weight to the body. Head is a big hemispherical bulb of brown that leaves some sudsy lace. Some fine carbonation. Looks good.
Nose is toasty. Noticeable coffee aromas, some brown bread and a bit of toffee. Slight meatiness comes through as well, as does a decent amount of wood. It's pretty aromatic and pretty damn good.
Light entry leaves some burgeoning booze to provide sharpness. This blossoms into a chewy, boozy mélange on the mid palate, spliced with stacks of wood characters. More coffee comes through leaving a slight spicy sharpness. On the back comes the real sweetness, giving sticky date, liqueur-like coffee tequila and gingerbread spice. Feel is a little sharp: smoother would make things integrate even better, but all up it's pretty damn tasty.
One of the best beers at the event, from a brewery that's really pulling out some interesting and tasty things. This was good stuff.
Serving type: on-tap
