Brewery: Westvleteren Abdij St. Sixtus in Westvleteren, Belgium Style: Abbey Strong Ale/Quad ABV: 10.2% Rate Beer: 100/100 Pour: Dark Ruby toffee colour with good head on pour that lasts for quite some time. Rated the best beer in the world and brewed by Belgium monks, I’ll admit I was nervous to pop the top off this […]
Brewery: Omnipollo/Buxton from Stockholm, Sweden and Buxton, England Style: Imperial Stout ABV: 10% Rate Beer: 98/100 Pour: Dark black pour with no head to speak of A collaboration between two great European breweries. This just melts in your mouth, covering your tongue with smooth, creamy, boozy goodness. It’s surprisingly not as sweet and rich as you’d […]
Brewery: Ridgeway Brewing from South Stoke, England Style: Russian Imperial Stout ABV: 10% Rate Beer: 92/100 Pour: Dark black with no head on pour Straight up this has more of a barleywine flavour.

Brewery: Brewski in Helsingborg Sweden Style: NEIPA ABV: 5.9% Rate Beer: 95/100 Pour: Hazy cloudy yellow colour with a thin head on pour. A big juicy flavour with this one. Hints of grapefruit, mango and passionfruit. Beautiful drinking beer this one. Quite bubbly on the tongue and with the hop hit, it lingers on the tastebuds […]
Brewery: To Øl in Copenhagen, Denmark Style: IPA ABV: 7.0% Rate Beer: 96/100 Pour: Golden ray of sunshine in a glass. Oh Citra! I love this hop. Citrus flavour and a light malt grain build makes for a good beer. This is what the West Coast IPA is made from.
