This morning we have Noire de Slack from 2 caps/Noyon brewery standing at 5.4%
Ryan had this drink with Cheesy chips, tarts and stollen.
First of all it was way more carbonated than what we just had, the thirteenth, which I found intrusive to the flavours, which were few and far between. And still havent been offered any stollen. Plus a very watery texture and finish. The only tastes I really get are malt, bitter burnt something and unadventure. Given its average percentage you can really smell the alcohol…. and burning
The aroma makes you think, this is going to be a bad drink, but its just okay, a bit different but completely uninteresting. You see the name and hope for the best. A stout.
Stop reading this post and start listening to clutch and red fang.
Okay okay im back from an ace night in nottingham where I must have had like 4 or 5 new beers as well.
To business! Here we have Rhub’ IPA (Indian Pale Ale) from a collaboration of Saint Germain/Page 24 and oh I don’t believe this…. and Nogne brewery, who made yesterdays amazing drink. Oh boy. Here goes nothing.
The aroma is classic indian pale ale with a pleasant tarte rhubarb, you really get both aroma’s equally but that is really all I can smell. The taste is just typical indian pale ale with a hint of rhubarb, thankfully like the aroma it is tarte rather than sour. The carbonation is low so it doesn’t intrude the faintness of the rhubarb and it leaves a clean finish. Deciding wether to be snide or not by mentioning you drink it and then its gone. Overall a very inoffensive drink but also quite boring and forgettable. The only real good thing I will say is that it is refreshing though.
Will also mention that the upon opening said bottle I got covered in a rhubarb mist, fact. It also makes me want to try sweeter version of this, maybe not as an ipa anymore either, but it would be interesting.
