Victory Art Brew Ivan 3.7  
Bottle (shared at Koht, thanks). Pours dark brown-black. Aroma is roast, malt, dark chocolate, coffee. Flavor is sweet and bitter, roast, malt, dark chocolate, coffee. Feels mellow for 13% ABV, so drinkability is surprisingly good. Overall: well crafted, but not very memorable.

Emelisse White Label Imperial Saison White Wine BA 3.9  
from bottle, first notice was that this is a insane high alcohol percentage for a saison. poured a deep dark oranger colour with a nice white head on top. nose has a clear vinous white wine notice, sweet white grapes, oak, vanilla notice, lemon, slight funky kind of farmhouse notes, nectarines, slight tartness but not in an amount i should expected, sweetness of ripe fruits and caramel. the bad bart imo, is that the alcohol is to overpowered for a enjoyable saison. but still very tasty. (to bad for the new labels do,)
Wobbly Cosy but Wobbly 3.5  
Cask conditioned at The Cosy Club, Hereford. Gold with white head. This proved to be quite a hoppy beer, leafy with a citric edge. Nicely and refreshingly bitter. A pretty decent beer.
Butcombe Adam Henson’s Rare Breed (Cask) 3.9  
Classic lower gravity bitter with much flavour centred around the biscuity malt and adequate but not over the top bitterness. Subtle and moreish, I accept that it won’t impress the hop fascists but I loved it.
Evil Twin I Love You With My Stout 3.3  
DK brown with an inch of big bubbled tan head. Aroma contains some sprucey hops and a bit of roast. Taste is extreme, with equal parts coffee, vomit and licorice. It's interesting, but I can't say it's pleasant. SF "doesn't taste all that stoutly to me". $4/12oz ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
