Lilja (2343) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2015
Flaska från Ale by Mail. Smak och doft av mycket humle, choklad, grapefrukt, tallskott, resin, citrus. Riktigt god svart IPA, rund och oljig, fruktig och frisk med bra balans och beska med smak av grapefrukt, citrusskal och tallbarr. Mer av detta tack!

bartlebier (2992) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2015
33cl batch 0192 bb05/2028, UK catered by idiosynkrasie, merci mate. Orchard fruit peel forward nose, candied gooseberry, Black IPA style, before malty ImpStout sugars and chocolats and overclocked gin/jenever waft through, somewhat spoiling the fruity freshness. About the same in taste on a thinner & drier palate than anticipated, counterbalanced by hop-derived green grapiness and powdery chocolate and roast. Crossover that did not entirely cater to my tastes.
