Relay is what it says. Smells like IPA tastes like stout. Nice drinking moderate to full body. Maybe the best of Emelisse so far

Bottle at De Pintelier Great aroma of tropical fruits (mostly mango), with hints of citrus fruits and resin. Fairly high bitterness, very little roast in the flavor. Rather dry. Very good

Echon (345) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2016
Black. Heavy spicy and piney hop aroma. Full malty flavour with some roasted character in addition to the hops. Liquorice notes. Sweet taste with medium bitterness. Full-bodied, with a soft texture. Overall, a great black IPA. I love IPAs with a malt character that matches the hops. This is bordering on a very hoppy stout.

Ulysse (428) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2016
Bread dough yeast whiff or of the bottle. Aroma in the glass is sweet and olive like. Almost no head. First in the mouth is sweet and alcoholic. Felt like a barley wine. Middle is bitter but not over the top. Roasting is last and lasting. Overall is rather rich and full on.
