OOKPIKABLE (12) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle; bought at Kris Wines, London, UK. Pours: Ruby with a thin, quickly dissipating head Aroma: some cinnamon and caramel, some hay and a dash of seaweed Taste: some caramel, a bit of cinnamon, chocolate and coffee, a bit of banana and some booziness. The booziness and, even moreso, the chocolate linger. Relatively oily mouthfeel. All in all, a very tasty beer. Would drink again.

330 ml bottle. Pours a dark hazy amber colour with a white small head. Aroma of rich floral hops, grapefruit, pear and some orange. Flavour of juicy floral bitterness, sweet orange, caramel, pine, alcohol and biscuit. Medium bodied and quite smooth mouthfeel. Long lingering bitter finish with some piney notes. Enjoyable.

Dark cherry red/amber, partly cloudy. Big head with good lacing. The aroma is caramel, some toffy, some fruity hops and little bit citrus. Finish is sweet and bitter. Medium body, average carbonation. In general the beer is heavy and packed with a lot of taste and aromas.

Arczir (70) - POLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Dark red, cloudy pour with great head. Rich, hoppy nose packed with fruits - strawberries, plums and grapes. Solid caramel taste with some melanoidins and fruits. Really smooth mouthfeel, average carbonation, great drinkability and pretty damn good herbal bitterness.

Wolfbass (863) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 12, 2014
Di un bel colore rossastro con leggera schiuma. Al naso malto e componente agrumata in evidenza. In bocca è decisamente la parte luppolata a dominare, ma ben bilanciata. Niente male...

Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Lightly hazy, reddy amber. Off white, tight, lasting head. Morello cherry jam. Ripe, black cherry. Grapefruit peeking through. Hint of spiciness. Taste is fleeting, toffee sweetness on the lips. Then light dry. Then fairly lengthy bitterness. Medium body,with some oiliness. Very nice.
