Beer #2950 is an imperial stout brewed by 8 Wired in Blenheim, New Zealand. No way does this have a 10% ABV! A thick bitter Russian imperial stout, roasty with coffee well and truly upfront, licorice backing it up, a…

Tsjeeses Reserva

Beer #2930 is a belgian ale brewed by Struise in Belgium. I’m not particularly fond of this one, too many indistinguishable flavours competing for attention. It’s boozy at 10% and a tad vinegary. I get a touch of bourbon but…

Beer #2788 is a coffee stout brewed by To Ol in Copenhager, Denmark. Yeah, yeah, but ‘Mr. Brown’? That’s little too close to ‘Mr. Shit’.’ I’ve had some shit coffee stouts in my time but also some great ones and,…

Beer #2707 is an imperial stout brewed by Amager Bryghus in Kastrup, Denmark. While I am trying to avoid the higher alcohol beers, when it comes to Amager how can I resist?!!! This is a beast clocking it at 10%…

Beer #2659 is an imperial stout brewed by Fox Hat in Willunga, S.A., Australia. A dangerously drinkable Russian imperial stout that completely and utterly hides its’ 10% ABV. Smooth and roasty, reasonably bitter, mildly chocolatey, maybe a hint of coffee.…

Beer #2619 is an imperial porter brewed by Omnipollo in Stockholm, Sweden. An Omnipollo dessert beer for the third night running, and another delicious beer it is too. Sweet and creamy with chocolate, caramel, vanilla and a pleasant nuttiness. The…

Beer #2391 is an imperial porter brewed by Knee Deep Brewing in California, America. My first from this brewery and hopefully not the last. A quite impressive imperial stout, full of chocolate and vanilla and some coffee. Bitterness is medium,…

Tart Ten

Beer #2289 is a sour ale brewed by Victory Brewing in America. An enjoyable and refreshing sour ale (never my favourite beer style) that is only lightly tarty and sour. I mostly got apple and pear as well as a…

Rain Shadow

Beer #2245 is an imperial stout brewed by Buxton Brewery in Buxton, England, U.K.. A smooth imperial stout that hides the 10% ABV very well with chocolate, coffee and some licorice. There’s not much bitterness but there is a smokiness…

Mango Magnifico con Calor

Beer #2149 is an ale brewed by Founders in Grand Rapids, Michigan, America. Founders are a pretty consistent brewery and have only mildly disappointed me the once so my expectations of them are high. This thankfully does not disappoint, in…
