Beer #3326 is a chocolate stout brewed by Level Beer in Portland, Oregon, America. And yet another beer from a brewery I’ve not encountered before. It’s got a fairly thin mouthfeel, a mild roastiness, light chocolate. There’s a sweetness to…

Beer #3323 is a cherry stout brewed by The Bruery in Placentia, California, America. Despite a thin mouthfeel this imperial stout is quite impressive. A tad on the sweet side, it does manage to conceal the 10.2% ABV very well,…
