skortila (4749) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2015
Bottled. The aroma has earthy yeast tones, light toast, citric hops. Dark coloured beer with a medium-big off-white beige head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, has some sweetness, light caramel, earthy yeast, some fruity hop tones. Nice beer: Three times not part of the obvious possible styles: Not a black IPA, not a Belgian ale. But tasty, yes.

bartlebier (2416) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 25, 2015
33cl bb03/2016. Mahogani-ruby pour, darker off-white foam. Belgian Dubbel yeast esters wholesomely interfering with the basic scaffolding of a Dark IPA: orchard fruit, grapes, raisins and powder milk chocolate in aroma accompanied by a very Belgian, subtle abv waft announcing lively yeast working overtime. Slightly more exotic, offkilter fruits in taste: starfruit, blood orange, cocoa-coated caramels. More of that gingerbread sweet Belgian dubbel malt profile coming through, well-lifted by perfumy US hop citrus. Engaging enough crossover brew with medium drinkability.

Alengrin (2939) - BELGIUM - APR 5, 2015
One of the interesting brews from this new craft beer project, a dark IPA with, it has to be said, exemplary back label in mentioning EBC, IBU, hop varieties used and so on. The ABV unambiguously refers to "the number of the Beast". Very dark ruby colour, almost black but still translucent, slightly hazy, under a lacing, light beige, moussy head of medium thickness. Attractively perfumed bouquet of milk chocolate, orange liqueur, cinnamon, gingerbread, grapefruit peel, nutmeg, walnuts, port wine, (quite strong) iron, some coffee grounds, vanilla beans, brown bread, beef jerky and lilies. Fruity onset, raisins, pear, brambleberries, subduedly sweet with a lemony sourishness (feeling ’natural’, not infected), fairly sharp carbonation, smooth dark maltiness, nutty and bitterly chocolatey, spicy accents playing along, somewhat powdery mouthfeel, medium bodied, metallic as well but fortunately not too disturbing; finishes in an elegant, quenching bitterness, both roasted, ’cold black coffee’-like bitterness and citrussy and peppery hop bitterness, even a bit quinine-like in the end, somewhat resinous, supported by a hint of warming alcohol, but not disturbingly so. Interesting, somewhat unusual but tasty example of the style, which is still very rare in Belgium. Though quite iron-like and even metallic, this aspect is covered in sufficient complexity not to bother me so in the end, I truly enjoyed this. I hope to taste more of their beers in the future.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 Bottle. Very big brownish head with a very good retention. Reddish brown colour too particulate. Very clean floral aroma, herbs and some toasted malt and caramel hints. Very hoppy taste, dry bitterness, toasted malt, black cacao and some lactic notes. Somehow oily palate. Somehow unstructured.
