Draught @Kaisla 1.2.2012. Poured hazy brown color with a white head. Aroma was fruity hoppy and malty, with some weizen/sahti-like notes clearly noticeable, ripe bananas came to mind directly. Flavor was yeast, roasted malt and hops. Very easy to drink, alcohol well hidden. Liked this one quite a lot. Not very bitter and not very Black IPA either though.

Draught @ Kaisla, Helsinki

Pours murky reddish brown color with a small foamy light brown head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, malts and hops. Taste is quite strange with a lot of sweet malts, some hops and hints of milk and chocolate. Finish is silky smooth with hints of bitterness. Overall quite untypical, probably this wasn’t supposed to end up like this. Tastes more like a sweet brown ale/milk stout than a (black) IPA.

(Draught at Kaisla, 20120202) The beer poured copper coloured and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, grass, malts, mild roastedness and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, malty and bitter. I know this was supposed to be a Black IPA but colour is no way black. A clean beer from De Molen which is nice.
