Grapefruit, orange in the nose with something else that’s great but I can’t put my finger on it. Taste is also very citrusy with stoutish overtones that work remarkably well together. Yeah, definitely grapefruit in the flavour, lovely ! Mild carbonation and good, tight palate make this a winner.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
De Molen’s BIPA, thanks to Stefan for sharing. Towering, rocky, dense, creamy, light beige head over a very dark bronze beer, almost black. Aroma strikingly has a lot of orange juice at first, next to hints of marmelade, grapefruit peel, cedar, white pepper, chocolate, toasted bread, hazelnuts and iron but in a good way. Restrained dark fruitiness, raisins and dates but not too sweet, very nutty from the start, toasted with a smooth, soft, supple mouthfeel, a bit iron-like in the middle but not actually metallic, roasted bitter touch in the end as well as a sweeter chocolate touch, ending in a fragrant, grapefruity, resiny, long and deeply bittering hoppiness. Absolutely lovely.

Bottle shared at Ash’s. Pours black with a thick beige head. Aromas of light roast, coffee, pine. Taste is bitter, more pine, coffee, burnt orange. Definitely more of a stout on the finish.
First wee tasting of the summer

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a corner shop.
Appearance - like an expresso.
Nose - more coffee notes. Dark chocolate.
Taste - there is a tangy orange note but generally this is all about roast flavours.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly decent finish.
Overall - it’s a good stout not an ipa.

Opaque black with small tan head. Warm fruity (esp. cherry) aroma. Flavor is fruity without being sweet, and full of bitter coffee notes on the end. Medium body tending towards astringent. Beers like this make me happy.

Pours black with dense beige head. Aroma is very sweet and sticky, at bit like sniffing a rum-soaked fruitcake. Flavor is surprisingly unsweet. A lot of roasted malt notes and medium body. Long, toasty finish. Very good.
