The Imperial Hotel at Bingara does not sell Tooheys Old. But they had White Rabbit. I think I had a gazillion schooners last night. Good stuff

Just in the process of falling in love with SToKE Black Beer out of Nelson, across the Tasman. Won't need anything to eat - a meal in every bottle.

I visited the Chidlow Taverna for my bi-weekly lunch with the Guzzisti recently,and landlord Norm poured me my customary pint of his finest Olde Tooheys.

"It's looking a bit blacker, Norm," says I. He held it up to the light.

"Bugger me, I think you're right," says Norm, rushing down to the cellar to make sure its not got mixed with the Guiness, or got squid ink in it.

He returns, scratching head. "'Ere, wot do you think?" he asks barmaid who has just got out of bed.

"It looks a bit blacker," says she. And we note that the new tap now says Toohey's Old, BLACK ALE, whereas the old tap said DARK ALE.

It tasted sort of the same, but what would we know, living so far from the brewery.

Please explain.

Sitting back and listening to Gov't Mule play a 15:30 version of Simple Man (by Lynyrd Skynyrd).
The world seems a better place.

Sorry haven't got a youtube version to post.

Must be played at a volume that destroys every termite nest within 300yds of your abode.

That's the short 7:30 original by LS

Try this, starts about 3min in so you get 16min of great music.

Scottish stout aged in Irish whiskey oak. Identity crisis? Perhaps. Also perhaps the best stout I've ever had. I usually go for our hoppy West coast IPAs, but I'll be going back for a couple three cases of this fine brew:

Sorry for the intrusion fellow Black Beer connoisseurs, the pic is of a local brew is a Great Northern Lager.
Their logo is a jumping Marlin fish, but looking at the pic, the tail and underbelly form a birds head.
( Insert twilight zone music )

Great Northern isn't black. It's also a tasteless mid-strength girly beer.

Well it had to be tried when I saw it on the shelf.

Pulling the cap off, the aroma of bitumen wafted out. Probably from an old pre-glasnost recipe, this offering must have been brewed using printers ink and residues sourced from Chernobyl. My drinking companion was more generous, saying he thought he could taste liquorice and hops. I couldn't. More Putrid than Putin. 1/10. Because it was wet.

Yes, and yes. Unseasonal snow, but the days are sunny now.

But back on topic....

I was beginning to despair of finding decent beer amongst the hipster rubbish. In spite of their habit of naming black beers after Russian presidents, this one was eminently drinkable. No grit on the teeth afterwards. More like a Mackeson, this one. Adequately smooth, and good enough to have a second, and a third. 7/10.
