Beer #3183 is a peanut porter brewed by Fierce Beer in Scotland. A smooth creamy porter, roasty with a touch of chocolate, a touch salty, certainly peanutty but it’s more subtle than full-on. The 6.5% ABV is well hidden. The…

Beer #3180 is a chocolate stout brewed by Smiling Samoyed in Myponga, S.A., Australia. A rather ordinary stout, supposedly with orange zest but I really didn’t get much at all. There’s some discernible chocolate, and a light roastiness and creaminess.…

Beer #3099 is a sour ale brewed by Hawkers Beer in Victoria, Australia. The penultimate beer before a milestone beer tomorrow night. A sour IPA, raspberry upfront with a certain saltiness to it. More a sour than an IPA but…
