Bottle at Huppel the Pub, Den Haag. Dark mahogany pour with a thin tan head and broken lace. Peaty aroma leading to a huge liquorice spicy malty bitter flavour. The bitterness hits the palate and stays there. Another Emelisse classic.

Bottle from Stirchley Wines; I don’t get it really I’ve had a few BIPA’s now, some I think yep nice fresh hop bite that links it to an IPA. But this tastes like a decent impy stout. Pours dark black, coffee & malt aroma which is also in the taste.

Black color with nice off white head. Aroma of coffee, milk, chocolate, cream. Taste is coffee but there is something sweet in the begging that I cant put my finger on, aftertaste is quite bitter but in a nice way coffee like. Overall is different then my expectations but it’s nice I like it.

Det här var en intressant öl med en spretig och komplex smak. Smaken präglas främst av malten och jästen, för att vara en ipa hamnar humlen lite väl mycket i skymundan. Men den var rätt god ändå.
