Best beers of June

I almost forgot about this post! And that after a true beer heavy month with even a brewery visit in it. Shame on me!

Emelisse White Label: Ardbeg Barrel Aged Imperial Russian Stout
Very ashy, very Ardbeggy. Great stout background.

5 stars

Emelisse Espresso Stout
A very very decent espresso stout that ticks all boxes

4 stars

Jopen Jacobus Rye Pale Ale
A Dutch take on the Farmhouse IPA. A bit more gentle, but more rye like too.

4 stars

Meantime Coffee Porter
The brother of their Chocholate Porter. I prefer that one, but it’s nice to taste what the difference does.

4 stars

Emelisse White Label: Glen Elgin Barrel Aged Imperial Russian Stout
Much more smooth than the Ardbeg cask. Almost velvety, which makes it incredibly delicious. An indulgence.

5 stars

Emelisse DIPA
Very decent Double IPA. It makes me wonder what their TIPA will be like!

5 stars

Emelisse Imperial Russian Stout
The backbone of the barrel aged versions. The thickness is already there, but the wood contact adds a layer of sweetness.

5 stars

Struise Brouwers Pannepot Reserva Vintage 2005
Not oxidized, and quite delicious. VERY cheap for 3 bucks.

5 stars

Birra Del Borgo & Dogfish Head My Antonia
My first BDB beer and a delicious one at that. Wouldn’t mind to have more of those, but 10 bucks is pretty expensive.

5 stars

Birrifico di Lambrate Ghisa
Another Italian one. Stout, pretty good. Not much to say, but worth trying.

4 stars

Ramses Shire Stout
I prefer this one Ola Dubh (below) mostly because it’s more wallet friendly. Delicious barrel aged stout.

5 stars

Harviestoun Ola Dubh 40 Year Special Reserve
Great flavours, but not worth a tenner. The 40 year old Highland Park casks don’t add that much, apart from cash going to the shop.

5 stars

Proefbrouwerij Prearis Quadrupel
A homebrew by a bar in Brugge. Pretty good flavours. Not too sweet, which I expected.

4 stars
