dnicolaescu (1671) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 16, 2016
BOTTLE 50 CL at 5,6%, Chinook Columbus. Pitch black, dark beige creamy head with good retention. Aroma has smooth lightly sweetened chocolate, and quite a bit of grassy, citrus and even rosebud hops. The taste is just as smooth, dark chocolate with a sweet filling. The hops adds a fruity almost desert-like quality to the chocolate, as well as crisp dry bitter finish. Maybe a bit too resiny. Super smooth and velvety mouth-feel. Excellent.

Bottle shared by will run for beer bottle date of 2 December 2015. He hand carried back from England. Aroma is chocolate, earthy grain, pine hops. Flavor follows with a sturdy amount of bitterness to balance out the chocolate and earthy malts. Body is medium with a dry, herbal texture. Nice

Hamirubi (509) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2016
7.5cl sample at the Ghent Beer Festival VI (22 VIII 2015). A stout looking ale with brown cassonade coloured foam on top. A roasted coffee and bitterness are omnipresent. The Indian-styled hopping is very mild. Not a true black IPA, but yet a subtly hopped porter with lots of dark, coffee and chocolate bitterness. Lovely ending.

Vells (1354) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - APR 29, 2016
Lovely coffeeish sipper. Quite deep for such low ABV. Nice roast level, coffee, dark choco, noticeable citrussy, floral hops. Well balanced, enjoyable brew, tho I would like more muscled version
