Slightly unclear deep amber colour, tall frothy beige head, good retention, heavy lacing. Aroma light malty, orange, tangerine, pine, light caramel. Taste mild medium sweet and bitter, malty, light toffee, citrusy. Hopbitter finish, fruity and light spicy notes, medium body, watery to oily texture, soft carbonation, nice mild mannered IPA.
Can from Holiday Market. Pours a relatively thick, pitch black with a small bit of brown foam that lingers. Big cinnamon focused nose with maple syrup and dark chocolate kit kat crispy wafer aromas as it warms. Booze is hid fairly well on the palate. Crispy, malt wafer flavors with chocolate, coffee and maple syrup flavors. Lingering warming alcohol with malt, chocolate and cinnamon...faint maple notes on the finish. Really nice actually. Very well balanced.
Jet brown with a decent light brown head. Intense blueberry and chocolate, quite sticky and artificial. Sweet berry, sweet maple, sweet chocolate and a long sweet finish. In the wake of the trend, decent, but still not my thing.
330ml can. Poured a clear dark brown colour with a short-lived frothy off white head. The aroma is roasty malt, chocolate, lactose, light hazelnut. The flavour is moderate sweet and liqourice bitter, with a smooth, yet slightly watery, liqourice, light dry coffee, light ashtray, light chocolate, nutty, light floral hop, liqourice bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A touch light and very much dominated by the liqourice and not what was written on the side of the can. A decent beer but I expect better from BBNO.
Jet brown with a small beige head. Sweet whisky and apple notes. Butterscotch, dark raisin and sticky notes. Rich and viscous.
330ml bottle. Poured a clear dark brown colour with a thin broken off white head. The aroma is roasty malt, molasses, over-ripe red berry fruits and alcohol. The flavour is moderate sweet, with a smooth, light roasty, liqourice, light boozy alcohol, subtle chilli pepper palate. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
500ml bottle. Poured a clear dark brown colour with a big fizzy tan head. The aroma is roasty malt, liqourice, very light chocolate. The flavour is liqourice bitter, with a slightly watery, liqourice, ashtray palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. Way over-carbonated up front for a stout. Watery and almost no chocolate. This is supposed to be a milk stout but there was zero lactose. A really poor, mass produced beer.
Pitch black pour with a thin espresso head. Intense aroma of dark roasted malts, smoke, dark chocolate, soy sauce. The taste follows the same notes, with some additional dark cherries, dark chocolate and a bit of scotch-like booziness. Better than I was expecting, for its ABV.
Murky yellow with a frothy white head. Dank citrus and pithy notes. A bit green, touch of burn and citrus with pithy notes. Old school Superflux, but a bit light. More like a pale ale.
Pours black, medium to relatively large, tanned head with average and above stability. Scent is heavy roasted. Very mild touch of booze, but it doesnt tell the 15 ABV. Not much adjuncts.
Taste starts very roasty, tad ashy. Bitter, heavy on the black malts. Coffee. Fullbodied, mild 'je ne sais qua' caused by the adjuncts, but none of them are recognizable in it's specific character. Mildly sweet ending. Would have enjoyed the additives to be (way) more up front, as i'm not a big fan of 'ashy' stouts, I prefer the modern pastry styles ( I know, i'm a disgrace! )
Special delivery from the brewery in times of corona. Hazy pale golden colour. Good fizzy white head, dissipates slowly. Light sourish aroma, wheat, yeast, lemon, yogurt. Fruity taste, light sweet and sour, wheat, lemon, yeast. Light body, watery texture, average carbonation, soft sweet & sour aftertaste, orange peel, chalky notes, refreshing mild saison, nice thirst quencher, okay.
Black with a beige head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa and lactose with blueberry coming out more as you drink. Flavour is above moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Fairly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of melon, lychee and light malt. Flavour is light to light moderate sweet and light moderate bitter. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyed this about 8 weeks after canning. Pours a golden colour, slightly hazy. Off white head with some retention. Aroma's: fruity, floral hops, light raisin. Retronasal it's sweetish, bitterish. Flavour is moderate bittersweet. Medium bodied. Finish is light herbal, light moderate bitter.
Pours a nice amber/orange colour and a creamy off white head with a small layer retention. Aroma's of malts, hops, slightly resinous. Retronasal it's fruity, resinous and light malty. Flavour is light moderate bitter with some malty sweetness. Light medium bodied. Good carbonation. Moderate bitter finish.
Hazy orange pour with a white head and a bunch of floaters. Notes of passion fruit, peach, salt, lime, yogurt. A bit too salty and not tart enough, I guess.
Towering yellowish head over clear foxy copper beer. Caramel, green herbs & leaves, dry bread, fresh hops but with quite some ureum. Dry, leafy-bitterish flavour, bit bready, but as well as no sweetness - same case with the caramel flavour. Very slight mineral touch, melanoidins. Quite slick, light to medium body. Better carbonated than it looks. Quite likeable!
