The other brewer's also leaving, to De Molen... As of right now Emelisse has no brewer, actually... Stack up on those White Labels while you can, folks...

Especially the first sip. It uses chocolate from a "tree to bar" chocolaterie from Berlin, as well as coffee from Five Elephants (also from Berlin, their coffee is usual 40 €/kg, pretty light roasts fwiw; maybe a custom roast with cheaper beans?). Coffee, chocolate, chili (more of a vegetalish aftertaste?) all noticeable, as well as the vanilla and spices. 2.25 € per can, which is lower than I expected, and a steal compared to regular German craft beers, especially considering the ingredients, but about on par as in the US I guess (Stone IPA is 1.90 €-ish here, fwiw). Also picked up a can of Cali-Belgique IPA (still not a fan) and Ruination IPA (p good).

Yea, I like the AB cans ice cold as beach beers, but not a fave by any stretch (don't pick up the licorice component tho), and agree with you on the Cali. Stone is a solid brewery for sure... Far from my dearest San Diego brewery by a long-shot. That Xocoveza sounds interesting.
