Quiet Deeds have welcomed their first beery cousin into the world with the launch of the Dark Deeds lineup of beers by Glen Iris’ Deeds Brewing. It’s a big, dark beast too, an imperial stout sitting at 9.5 percent ABV and bearing the suitably epic name The First Horseman – a reference to the beer’s conquest over light, and the fact we’ll likely see more of a similar ilk in the near future.
There’s a sweet and thick – almost oil like – body to the beer, with roasted coffee aromas galloping through the gates at first. They're joined by flavours of a more chocolate bent, while you'll find blackcurrant, liquorice and a big bitterness coming at you before the race is run.
