Just tried Doctors Orders Iron Lung at the Mac hotel in Sydney.

Now that is one flavoursome beer, strong malt AND hop flavours. At ABV 6.9% and IBU 60 it packs a punch but is well balanced by the flavour. What do you guys think of it?

I think he's too busy having fun going pro than spending time here. :lol:
Tried the iron lung at his place the other night. Fantastic.

I'm surprised it isn't called an Imperial Schwarzbier given that it's a black pilsener. Sounds sensational!

Lucky you!

Just might be able to fiddle with the train schedule on Monday to get down to The Scratch on my way home from CraftBrewer & other places? Presuming it'll still be on tap of course?

Will hopefully be in touch Nick but only so many hours in the day. :p

Getting off at Geebung ASAP to 8.30AM (Tony Powell) then off to Central enroute to CraftBrewer via bus to drink Ross dry. :lol:
Back to central ASAP & perhaps to The Scratch before jumping on a train at Milton to connect to the Gympie Xpress departing Roma St at 4.00PM.
Will PM you when I work all this out.

On second thoughts, send me your email addy (It's around here somewhere but seems lost?) & I'll email you. :party: ;)

I had some at Harts yesterday, and some at Schwartz tonight, to make sure my initial impression was correct (it was worth a second try :p).

It is a very nice beer, I get a crisp palette with nice subtle roastiness, with very nice upfront hop character - I suspect motueka, but I'm not the best at picking hops, in any case nice NZ hop aroma and taste.

Congats Doc, this is a beer I wish I could pick up by the 6 year-round.

N.B. I tried the seasonal Schwartz brewery Belgian Dark Strong, which was very nice, and great to see this style brewed locally, but at $6/middy, not worth it over the Iron Lung for $5.30 a schooner.
