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.

K10 - Dazza's Porter

I polished this off last Sunday. Very similar thoughts to those mentioned by Doomed. Above all else I felt it had a very strong coffee influence. I likened it to a liquid tiramisu! Slightly over carbed, but not in a big way.

Very enjoyable mate. Thanks for sharing.  :great:

Cheers,

Lusty.

1K - Smurto's Wet hopped IPA

Quote from: Dazza77

I agree with everything Dazza has already posted in his view of the beer, however I have a few personal views on top of that.

I've assessed the beer against what I would a British styled IPA, as it lacked a notable aroma & forceful hop flavour. I have NFI how a wet hopped beer presents or how the beer was constructed but would suggest the hops were primarily added in the boil/whirpool area as it lacked a notable aroma, & that is OK as I enjoy balance in a beer that is even supposedly meant to be imbalanced as IPA's are.

The overall bitterness was a tad too smooth for my liking of what I consider either an American or British style IPA should be, but was certainly there & bordered around what I would happily drink under an American Pale Ale tag.

Near enough perfect carbonation, head development, head retention, glass lacing, nice dryish finish, & well constructed malt character. My palate isn't that advanced that I can detect minor levels of diacetyl or acetaldehyde etc. so I'll leave others to comment on that, but I didn't notice anything harsh or unpleasant at all in these areas.

Having not sampled a wet hopped beer before, I suppose my expectations may have been a little different & perhaps higher than they should have been.
On a positive note, as a stand alone beer it was a very smooth, well crafted, balanced, & enjoyable beer that didn't last long.  ;)

Thanks for sharing Doc (I hope I can call you by this name?)

Cheers,

Lusty.

K16 - Scrivenovski Coconut Stout

On first smell you can note a light coconut & roasted grain aroma. On tasting the coconut flavour really comes through. Thoroughly enjoyable & clever how this was infused into the beer character from my end having never tasted a coconut flavour infused beer before.

On the negative side, the beer lacks body to be classed as a stout. The carbonation level is very low & no head develops as such that can be retained or observed through glass lacing. It's more like a porter than it is a stout.

Some more roasted barley, choc malt, oats to increase body & mouthfeel & this could be an outstanding stout beer.

Flavour-wise, very enjoyable.

Thanks for sharing Scrivenovski.  :great:

Cheers,

Lusty.
