sic1314 (3199) - Leiden, - NOV 21, 2012
Poured a murky brown with an off white, frothy head. Aroma of floral hops. Full, creamy body, flavour of bitter and some sweet berries. floral hops with a dry, bitter, lingering aftertaste.

Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
In short: A problematic burgundy ale of some kind.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed 4 months before expiration date (although probably not fresh at all).
The look: Slightly cloudy burgundy-copper body toped by a medium beige head with good retention.
In long: Nose is tired leafy and wooden hops in a puree of dark berries. In a blind tasting I would have needed 5 ort 6 style guesses before naming IPA for this aroma. In mouth the beer is medium-full body with a lively carbonation, nothing wrong with the mouthfeel. Taste is a purre of ripe dark berries (cranberries, dark cherries, other…), some earthy wet wood, boiled carrots, wet tobacco, a weird gastric acid sensation (like drinking vomit), yeast, blood, other. There is some kind of hop bitterness in there but blended with all those weird flavors it is hard to know what is what. Another disappointment from Emelisse. Another disappointing beer from Emelisse, when I die I would like the people of Shorts to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time.

Smalle (104) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2014
"Dark red", more brownish than red. Aroma: caramel, hops, wet leaves. Taste: definately some "old bottle" notes. Hmm, I only bought this last week, let’s check the date; indeed: BBF 03/2014. Malt, caramel, some hops, bitter. Bottle aging can sometimes be good, but it doesn’t really work for this beer.

olio (6114) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours dark mahogany color with a medium sized lasting head. Some berry notes first thing on the nose, mild caramel, malts and fruits. Berries on the flavor too, sweet fruits, some strawberries, resinous hop notes and caramel malts. Slightly bitter malty body, not that fresh hop profile. More like and Amber Ale. Decent.

guzgorog (241) - FRANCE - MAY 14, 2014
Bière "périmée" depuis 3 mois. Brune/rouge/rubis. Peu de mousse. Un peu de dépôt. Nez relativement complexe de caramel, de malt torréfié, de prune et de fruits rouges. Texture crémeuse et liquoreuse. Amertume moyenne. Goût de caramel, cerise griotte, alcool. Quand je vois les autres commentaires, je me dis que, une fois n’est pas coutume, c’est une IPA à faire vieillir ...
