bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2016
33cl bb11/2018 kindly shared by impuritylaw at the Post-Baltikum tasting Sep 2016, terviseks! - Smells of earthy, herbal, hard to define elements that could just as well be spent hops (or those vegetal experimental HBC hops, in retrospect) as black peppercorns. Subtly integrated flavours on the plus side, dry orange peel and a subcutaneous spice, a bit underdetermined and boring by the bottle-length probably.

BlackHaddock (6380) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
4th Aug 2016: shared 330ml bottle with minutemat. Brought home from Barcelona and the RBESG. Really enjoyed this ’Black Indian Pepper Ale’. Deep, dark brown body, red hue: beige topping. A malty and fruity nose is followed by a taste that is very similar in nature, dark, rich maltiness and dark berries but with a sprinkling of black pepper to add some spiciness. Very easy to drink and slightly different to most BIPA’s.

ciocanelu (1425) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 16, 2016
Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has dark malts, some brown sugar spicy yeast notes, pepper and some dark fruits. Taste starts balanced with dark, roasted malts and brown sugar, spicy pepper and finishes hoppy and bitter with some lingering coffee and chocolate flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it’s a really interesting, complex tasting beer.
