Burleigh Brewing Black Giraffe 2012

Burleigh Brewing Company

Released August 20th, 2012

Gold Coast's Burleigh Brewing has a habit for picking up trophies and medals for its beers. And when the Black Giraffe was first released a couple of years back it was no different, with the coffee lager scoring a gold medal at the World Beer Championships in the US. The 2012 release is slightly tweaked. It still rocks in at five per cent and is still brewed with 100 per cent 100% rainforest alliance coffee beans from Zarraffa's, this time sourced from Guatemala and promising "a more intense, rich mocha flavour than the 2010 version". Certainly, if memory serves us correctly, the roastiness is more subdued this time around in a beer with a noticeably fuller body and well-rounded malt character that, if anything, is an improvement on the original.
