Auld Bulgin’ Boysterous Bicep
Pours a very dark brown/black with a small creamy tan head that dissipates to a fine ring around the edge of the glass. Has a unique combination of aromas – Smokey chocolate, peppery, salty sea (it’s brewed with Mussels and Oysters). It has a strong smooth smokey roasted chocolaty flavour with a smooth sweetness with hints of seafood just coming through. You can feel the ABV sneak up towards the end of the beer!
I wouldn’t normally eat oysters and mussel’s but used in this brew it works well. A nice drop but only in moderation of course. Unique artwork on the bottles label for a unique beer – looks like a character from the cursed crew of the Black Pearl in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
Style – Imperial Stout (Smoked Belgio Imperial Mussel and Oyster Stout)

Ekim Brewing Berserker
Pours a clear dark amber with a creamy head that reduces. The aroma is quite floral and fruity. Had too (but didn’t need too) keep swirling the glass to release more aromas – nice! The malts release a roasted toffee taste as do the hops with a fruity floral flavour. Not a highly carbonated beer from the bottle, and definitely a beer to have a again. Need to try this on tap!
Great artwork on the bottle. Berserkers were warriors who fought in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury. Probably would have drunk like that if I had any more. Great Beer!
