Okkara Vár 2.8
Beautiful amber ale with serious persistent off-white foam. Smells of caramel malt and hops weak notes. The flavor is surprisingly sweet, but in a good way. It has distinct sweetness of toffee, fresh sweet forest berries and freshly baked bread with a touch of wheat malt. The finish offers only little but beautiful balanced, hop bitterness that contribute to an extension of its sweet tones in a long time. I find it too sweet to take with food, but to a fruit dessert will certainly be quite suitable.

Okkara Rinkusteinur 3.2
Beautiful foamy beer with good aroma of malt, caramel, fresh grains and a little hay. Lovely malty flavor with caramel notes and semi-dry end with good hops. It is a beer that I really like. It bears the stamp of quality and good craft.

Fineszes egy sör, mer az alkoholt úgy bújtatja, mint a juhász a pálinkásüveget a bundája alatt.

Copper pour with thin beige head. Smells like sweet caramel goodness. Unfortunately tastes like watery caramel goodness with a bit of wet cardboard.

Kicsit kukoricás, testes, erős, imperial. Májkrčmes. Dreher-típusú sör. Sigmundur Brestisson is csak megrágná, kiköpné és a keresztény istenhez imádkozna, hogy bocsásson meg a bűnös pogány léleknek.

Okkara Portari/Porter (7.9%) 5
Nougat colored rich foam that covers its mysterious aroma and sets the expectation of a good porter up. But you have to sit and wait until the foam falls before you can sense the touch of smoked malt mixed with hard roasted malt and peat. The taste is a feast of coffee, dark chocolate, hard toasted / roasted malt, licorice, smoke and a little bit dark dried fruit. A little bit of warming alcohol character are pressing towards the end and with its soft carbonation gives good starting point for a moderate hoppy bitterness that maintains its many fine flavors long. The finish is medium dry. This is a porter brand that I like them. Robust, full-bodied and velvety in the mouth.

Big brown head. Opaque black body. Roasty smoky vanilla aroma with earthy licorice notes. Sweetish earthy smoky tar taste with spicy roasty notes. Fullish body. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Sweetish earthy chocolatey smoky aftertaste with vanilla and burnt notes. Sooty wooden flavour lingers. Partly great and partly flawed. Certainly interesting. (0.33l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

Okkara Klassik/Classic 2.7
Bottle. Pours lcear tea amber with airy white head. CLear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of hops and yeast. Sourish, nearly Lambic-like flavour, with paperlike notes and touches of malt and yeast. Sourish aftertaste with bready notes. Either something has gone wrong in the brewing process or this beer is simply not what one is supposed to expect reading the deScription. Drinkable, though.

Bottle, 4.6%. Rough and refreshing citric hop aroma. Clear dark golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is fruity and strangely citric. Has a sort of lambicky sourness. Not entirely unplesant but seems unfitting for the style.

Okkara Tróndur 2.2
Draft. Lightly hazed amber gold with a thin white head. Rich and sticky in the way of Bockbier. Sugary and cloying in the mouth with bitterness low enough to betray the name Imperial Pilsner. Chewy and syrupy and a little alcoholic, and not unlike malt liquor in both aroma/flavor and body. Trace DMS manifests as cauliflower and corn, while some hot alcohols prick the tongue in the finish.

Okkara Vanliga 1.9
Draft at Hvonn Brasserie in Torshavn. Clear and sparkling gold with a short white head and noticeable chill haze. Aroma is grainy raw pale malt with distinct vegetable DMS. Light bodied and watery and fizzy and brash with that Okkara house calcium mineral quality. Hops are lightly herbal and vegetal, plus it’s husky and saccharine sweet and a little sour as well. Doesn’t seem like a serious lager.

Okkara Brandan 3.6
Bottle. Lightly hazed amber with a thin white head and some retention. Fruity and malty aroma impression is caramel and toffee, red apples and cherry liqueur, with a touch of pine resin hoppiness and subtle basement must yeastiness. Full bodied, moderately sweet with strong bitterness, the hop character is grassy and sharp and lasting in the finish, and the mineral quality that seems common in Okkara beers works well with the rich malt sugar and sharp hops. It doesn’t scream Belgian, there’s not much in the way of yeast, and with the strong resin hoppiness and caramel malt it fits more taste-wise with American Strong Ale and Imperial Red Ales. More interesting aroma than their other products, and though it’s overly bitter (hence the ASA resemblance), it works well against the sugar. The most enjoyable beer I’ve had from Okkara. Definitely not a booze-bomb or overly alcoholic like some reviewers have mentioned, I’m happy to find.

Okkara Kelling 2.7
500ml bottle. Cloudy pale gold with a short white head. Mild aroma of wheat, lemon and green banana with calcium and metal notes that seem common across all Okkara beers. Medium bodied, cloyingly sweet with low bitterness and sharp mineral acidity. There’s an underlying chalkiness that I would guess is the suspended yeast, it’s silt-like and a little gritty in the mouth, not that pleasant with the under-attenuation... the whole effect is a bit goopy-sweet, and like their other beers the ingredient expression is pretty dull. The brewer calls it Hefeweizen but it’s not very much like German Weizen, and at near 7% it could be considered Weizenbock.

Okkara Risi 3.2
Bottle. Clear chestnut brown body with a short off-white head. Malty and estery aroma of slightly oxidized brown malt, plum and black cherry esters, lightly vegetal / leafy aroma hops and a sharp flint / mineral quality that seems phenolic. Medium-full body, rich and sticky and savory, turning chewy in a sweet and bitter finish that tastes of maraschino cherries, grapefruit and red apples. It’s more flavorful than the other Okkara beers I’ve tried so far, but still strange in the nose with that sharp flint quality and mostly dull malt expression. It’s a bit chewy and sweet but the flavor balance seems to work okay.

Okkara Klassik/Classic 2.5
Complimentary can on Atlantic Airways flight 402. Clear brown with a short off-white head. Simple malt aroma impression is toasted grain and bread and caramel, it’s lightly phenolic and vegetal with a chalky, almost lactic yeast quality, and a very odd moldy mushrooms and soil aroma that grows as it warms, and at times crosses over into "moldy dish rag" territory. Medium-light body, lightly sweet with low bitterness and light acidity. Overall its a simple Amber lager that seems ale-like in texture and aroma (which makes sense after later confirming this is a post-fermentation blend of Pilsner and Porter), it’s a little dirty and syrupy with a watery thin finish, and I can’t get past the psychedelic mushroom resemblance.

Okkara Rinkusteinur 3.5
Draft. Clear amber with a short white head. Simple malt and ester profile is red apples and caramelized sugar, while spicy phenols suggest cinnamon and nutmeg and metal flakes, while hops come across slightly vegetal and there’s a strange pumpkin flesh character present (and this is unspiced), but altogether it’s still enjoyable. Medium bodied, sweet and lightly bitter, though a little coarse and grainy and minerallic.
