Wypite przed kilkoma laty, nie jest już produkowane… Ocena przepisana z notatek. Grumbo (3973) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle at the Tap House, Norwich. Historic rating. Poured a slightly hazy red/brown with an average sized off-white head. Aroma of caramel, moderate hop, quite sweet and malty. Moderate sweetness, medium bitterness. Dry finish. Dominik92 (53) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle. Aroma carmel, raisins and little bit of vanilla. Brown color with red glimmers. cloudy, tan foam with amazing dancing little bubbles (almost nitrogen feel).medium sweetness, medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, long finish. In taste: red fruits and alcohol with warming feel. As someone before me said - it’s not taste like IPA, for me it’s not taste like IPA in my imagination and style frames, in blind test I would said it’s kind of Belgian Dubbel Ale.

Bottle, bb somewhere 2014 (have to guess, very hard to read), so probably close to, or over bb date. Pours brownish red with a slim white head.
Aroma: not much, some caramel, some red fruits. Taste: Strawberry, red berries, caramel, bread. Medium sweet, light-medium bitterness, oily texture, thin body. Perphaps caused by its (over)age, but this does not taste like an ipa, more like an amber ale.

Dit bier zou retired zijn maar ik heb het eergisteren nog kunnen kopen in Grobbendonk, dus ik weet niet of dit klopt. De geur is heel sterk, de smaak daarentegen is redelijk zacht. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
In short: A problematic burgundy ale of some kind.Smalle (228) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2014
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.
"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.
