Bottle (shared at Koht, thanks). Pours dark brown-black. Aroma is roast, malt, dark chocolate, coffee. Flavor is sweet and bitter, roast, malt, dark chocolate, coffee. Feels mellow for 13% ABV, so drinkability is surprisingly good. Overall: well crafted, but not very memorable.

|Emelisse White Label Imperial Saison White Wine BA 3.9 |
from bottle, first notice was that this is a insane high alcohol percentage for a saison. poured a deep dark oranger colour with a nice white head on top. nose has a clear vinous white wine notice, sweet white grapes, oak, vanilla notice, lemon, slight funky kind of farmhouse notes, nectarines, slight tartness but not in an amount i should expected, sweetness of ripe fruits and caramel. the bad bart imo, is that the alcohol is to overpowered for a enjoyable saison. but still very tasty. (to bad for the new labels do,)
|Wobbly Cosy but Wobbly 3.5 |
Cask conditioned at The Cosy Club, Hereford. Gold with white head. This proved to be quite a hoppy beer, leafy with a citric edge. Nicely and refreshingly bitter. A pretty decent beer.
|Butcombe Adam Henson’s Rare Breed (Cask) 3.9 |
Classic lower gravity bitter with much flavour centred around the biscuity malt and adequate but not over the top bitterness. Subtle and moreish, I accept that it won’t impress the hop fascists but I loved it.
|Evil Twin I Love You With My Stout 3.3 |
DK brown with an inch of big bubbled tan head. Aroma contains some sprucey hops and a bit of roast. Taste is extreme, with equal parts coffee, vomit and licorice. It's interesting, but I can't say it's pleasant. SF "doesn't taste all that stoutly to me". $4/12oz ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
