12 Mudskipper's Belgian beer

Not sure what style exactly but something Belgian.  Certainly has the prominent yeast phenolics, quite fruity, some spice. Allspice plums?  Does finish too sweet and has that unusual sharp kit malt taste half way through once the yeast flavours fade.
Thank for the feedback Kieren style Dark strong . Sweetness shitloads of Candi trying to hide it's all extract. But definitely not a mid afternoon tipple. Mudskipper

10 Dazza's Porter

Mild choc and burnt grain on the aroma, toasty and roasty flavours.  Flavours roll off to a roasty dry finish, maybe a hint earthy hops.  Very enjoyable beer.  Cheers Dazza.

16 Scrivo's Coconut Stout

Pours with a small head that fades quickly.  Slightly odd aroma, toasty coconut when warm, alcohol, maybe some slight acetaldehyde, woody mixes with choc malt and very slight coffee.  Flavour is balanced between toasty coconut and the dark malts but cocon coming through more near the end. At first I thought I got a savoury soy like taste when first poured but that could be the toast and roast mixing but also tastes like a little bourbon in there too.  Enjoyable beer, cheers Scrivo.

1 Smurto's IPA

Nice melon, tropical hop aroma initially then buttery, caramel.  Some fruity hop flavour but the diacetyl dominates, slight astringent finish.  It does hide its kitness well though haha.  I didn't want to wait too long on this one but maybe I cracked it too early?

K12 - Mudskipper's Belgian Dark.

Lovely rich malt flavours & aromas. Terrific head formation, carbonation & subsequent glass lacing that holds to the bottom of the glass. On first tasting, noticed some light to mild astringency. After a few more mouthfuls the rich sweetish malt flavour masks it pretty well.

As Mudskipper mentioned, it has some alcohol behind it that I noticed toward the end of the first glass. A credit to his brewing prowess that it isn't an obvious trait before then. It reminded me somewhat of how well the Coopers ESVA hides it's high alcohol content, very smooth, so would be interested in the final ABV%.

I'm not sure where the EBC of the beer ended up against the BJCP guidelines, but I would have liked it to have a slightly darker hue.

Very enjoyable beer mate, so thanks for sharing.  :great:

Lusty.

4. Doomed - Brett Saison
Pours medium orange, with little carbonation. Lovely brett aroma. Has notes peach and bubblegum. Would never pick this as a kit beer. Overall very dry nice body. Great beer mate very easy to drink and will develop the longer its left in the bottle. Very moreish...I want more!!! Cheers.
