#4717 Belle Gueule Gustav Hyper IPL from Montréal, Quebec, Canada
Score: 3.5 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Pours a clean darker amber colour with a frothy, kind of creamy, light-beige head with good retention and lots of wavy foamy-creamy lacing. Cereal grain aromas with a caramel malt base and some dark fruit notes (dates, raisins). The mouthfeel is warming with a little alcohol. Big bitterness in the finish. The rest of the flavours are hidden behind with some decent maltiness. The hops just linger and the alcohol is kicking in. Does the job for a stronger lager with lots of hops.

#4716 Belle Gueule Yéti from Montréal, Quebec, Canada
Score: 3.7 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 7 | Overall 8 |
Pours a clean amber colour with a frothy warm cap, good stay and some spotted lacing. Nice fresh cereal nose well-balanced with the mild hops. The taste is hoppier, taking over the grainy malts. This creates a crisp and quite dry mouthfeel for a regular lager. It goes down nicely for the style because of this. Not a bad new product, for those looking for a hoppier lager.

#4715 Griffin Claw Norm's Raggedy Ass IPA from Birmingham, MI, United States
Score: 3.7 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Had somewhere in Austin, TX. Poured a lightly hazed golden-amber colour with an off-white head, leaving creamy full lacing. Grassy and fruity malts for aromas. Hoppy taste with a decent blend of grass, citrus and fruity base. Mouthfeel is dry and bitter, but not to the maximum. An easy-drinking IPA that is well-balanced.

#4714 Independence Native Texan from Austin, TX, United States
Score: 3 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 4 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 7 | Overall 6 |
Had in Austin, TX on a trip. Poured a light golden colour with a small white cap and some wet lacing. Nice Saaz hop nose over mild cereal grains. Same hops in the taste with the light malty base. Lightly crips mouthfeel, medium-bodied. A decent Pilsner, maybe just a tad too thick to have another one.

#4713 512 IPA from Austin, TX, United States
Score: 3.4 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 6 | Overall 7 |
Had this one at Dirty Dog bar in Austin, TX. Poured a hazy golden-amber colour with a white cap and dirty lacing. Grassy hop aromas with some orange notes and caramel cereal malts base. Flavours are fairly bitter with the hops over light fruity malts. The mouthfeel is on the dry side. An average IPA that is not juicy, like most nowadays, not a hopbomb, but rich and grassy.

#4712 Compass Brewing Polar Night from Timmins, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.6 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 8 | Overall 7 |
Forgot about this one, can from the brewery. Dark brown colour, almost black with a big frothy light mocha-coloured head, good retention and lots of wavy creamy-foamy lacing. Aromas of roasted malts with some light sweetness. This from the chocolate malts seem to show more in the taste with hints of coffee and smokiness. A pretty good dry stout.

#4711 Boss Brewing Black from Landore, Swansea, Wales, United Kingdom
Score: 3.3 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 7 | Overall 6 |
Pours a dark brown colour, getting to the black side with a warm beige mocha-coloured head which is quite big, lasts long and leaves foam spots. Lots of dark fruits in the nose over the roasted malts. So, prunes and hints of coffee, chocolate. The taste is mostly the roasted malts with the roasted coffee mild bitterness in the finish. Nothing too special, but quite drinkable.

#4710 N'ice Chouffe from Achouffe, Belgium
Score: 3.5 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
330ml brown bottle with a best before date 02-2021. Pours a clean dark amber colour with copper highlights. The frothy beige head has good stay and leaves spotted foam lacing. Aromas are a blend of dark fruits like dates, raisins and banana notes that is found from wheat. The base is caramel malts. The taste shows these ingredients with hops that give out some grassiness, but also kind of rusty water notes. Some haziness at last pour. Interesting, and easy enough to drink for 10% ABV, but nothing to go back to.

#4709 De Moersleutel Dolle Dries 2 from Alkmaar, Netherlands
Score: 3.9 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 8 | Overall 8 |
Can, 440ml with a best before date of June 2022, batch: 150. Pours a real dark brown colour with little copper highlights. The head is bubbly at first and deep mocha-coloured, but turns into a creamier lighter mocha-beige colour. Good retention and some nice lacing. Aromas of chocolate and coffee at first. Then, some notes of dark fruits and hints of soy sauce. Flavours of espresso coffee with the bitterness of coffee. Roasted malt base with some dark fruits. The mouthfeel is super creamy, silky smooth. Gets even more bitter as I go. The apricot pits seem to add a little fruitiness, but not a big punch. Goes down nicely for an Imperial Stout.

#4708 Innis & Gunn Higher Ground from Edinburgh, United Kingdom, United Kingdom
Score: 3.4 | Aroma 6 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Part of their Latitude & Longitude Series 002. Boxed 330ml brown bottle. Pours a deeper amber colour, clean, with a creamy-frothy light-beige head, good stay and some spotty-bubbly lacing. Nutty malt aromas, caramel with the Scotch cask alcohol notes and hints of vanilla, wood. A little unbalanced, it seems - kind of weird. The taste is better blended, but seems milder all-around. Light warming alcohol. Hints of dark fruits, watered-down, with decent hop bitterness-dryness in the finish. The malts really take a back step in the flavours. Interesting, but not one I would seek again. Thankfully, the smell gets better at last pour. Same for taste.
