Dry & Bitter: Ancient Paradox (Black IPA) 🇩🇰 . If it’s not super-obvious from the picture, the latest tasting (ahem, binge drinking) session took place in a bar called Skaal (nice selection of international craft beers in downtown Copenhagen, very convenient and dangerous at the same time). . The nice, dark liquid in the glass is a Black IPA which, just as the name says, is a paradoxical type of beer. Is it an IPA? Or maybe a porter? The debate is still raging and blood might be shed. . There’s roasted dark chocolate and zesty grapefruit both playing quite nicely together, with a lingering bitter finish. If I’d have to choose sides I’d probably join team #porter here but I can totally see where the IPA character comes from. . Dry & Bitter is definitely one of my top 3 Danish breweries right now. Their beers are awesome and this one was no exception. The beauty of the Paradox is not being able to fall firmly on either side which is what these guys managed to put in a can.
3. Naprawdę dobra, wyraźna przyjemna goryczka 6. Taka sobie 11. Może być, ale dość specyficzne połączenie jak dla mnie 13. Bardzo dobra, spełnia to co obiecuje. Wyraźny i przyjemny grejpfrut! Miejsce rewelacja!
Ocean Reach Brewing [🇦🇺,VIC], Oatmeal Stout (7.9% ABV). With this % ABV, we’re nudging ‘imperial’ territory. Pours jet black. Fine tan head. Subtle coffee and cocoa aroma. To taste, chocolate and coffee dominate, with a smooth & creamy mouthfeel and no sign of the booze. @oceanreachbrewing #oceanreachbrewing#stout Purchased: @decantersbythebay Poured: @spiegelauaus #spiegelau#stoutglass
