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.
Dark orange to brown colour with nice head on top leaving lacing behind as it dissolves. Aroma has caramel malts, sweet ripe fruits, slight stingy alcohol. Taste has a lot of sweet caramel, malty and has ending of pines and grass hop notes. Full body and medium carbonation. Too much booze. SVD (2268) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2016

Mocne, wyra?nie s?odowe z dobrze ukrytym alkoholem. Piwo z jednego z dwóch browarów na Wyspach Owczych i to chyba z tego lepszego ;) Geokkjer (7667) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2014

Bottle. A hazy, dark golden beer with a dense, finger-thick beige head. Lacings. The aroma is quite boozy, with dried fruits and some sugary malts. Boozy, sugary flavor too. Some bitterness. Rather dry on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting sweet, boozy and bitter finish. Not very well crafted this one, lasting the complexity a quad should have and way too boozy. 141108 Meilby (11791) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2014
