    Just finished a nice bowl of HoC First Pipe in the Squatch. Getting this pipe broken in fairly quickly, as this briar is seemingly invincible. Every time I smoke, I empty the ashes and look at the heel, and there's never even a trace of moisture. Really nice wood, clearly. Such a great blend, too. I wish it was less expensive, because it's a blend that I really need to have in my rotation. Alas, Steven Books will get my money anyway, because he knows good and well that he's the only one who makes a blend like this. It's just terrific stuff.

    Snowmaggedon this morning, well 2” but undaunted we waxed the sled runners, harnessed the dogs and struggled into our fur Parkers ! OK Mrs Wicker put her boot grips on and we plodded out for the bus to Skipton – it’s Wednesday Narrow Boat day. I left Mrs Wicker ice climbing in the high street and went to see what the guest beers were today. First pint was a Leeds brewery New Moon 4.3% Black IPA it was OK lots of body and a good hop taste but Black IPA ??? the pipe was a Butz Choquin maître pipier de-lux fait main (hand made) St Claude France with a brass Army mount stem, smoking Germain’s Special Latakia Flake
    [​IMG]
    Mrs Wicker landed and we went inside to warm up Mrs Wicker a Cappuccino and I tried a
    Batemans brewery Hooker – golden bitter 4.5% with the slogan :-
    “have you got the balls for it”
    OK taste notes :- there’s a hint of citrus in the top note with tastes of xmas pudding and fruit mid notes with nuts coming through in the base ! Nuts indeed or should that be Bollocks ? to the Bear it’s all subjective and just tastes like Beer this one not startling but not bad, the New Moon was better because it had more Hops and the Bear likes Hops !
    [​IMG]
    Mrs Wicker had warmed up from the ice climbing and had a 1/2 of Timmerman's brewery Lambic (wild yeast ferment) Strawberry Ale 4%.- I had an Ilkley brewery Timothy Hughes Pale Ale 3.5%, hoppy almost an IPA and more to the Bears liking than the Batemans,
    [​IMG]
    these two were so spot on we both had another, Brenda had said "this is like pleasant pop" after the first taste of the Strawberry but followed that with I can feel the effects of this ! after the second 1/2, but at 4% the Bear said he’d be more inclined to complain if he couldn’t !
    back to the bus station with the snow turning to rain for the trip home.
    cheers :toast: all Wicker Man

    Old Dublin in a straight MM pride with a Sweetwater IPA. I've been on both a Peterson kick and an IPA kick lately. So far, good combo.
