Beer #3348 is a coffee porter brewed by North Brewing in Leeds, U.K.. A solid coconut porter, the coffee is subdued, which is the way that I like it, with toasted coconut, and a touch of chocolate. The bottle size…

Beer #3340 is a sour ale brewed by Northern Monk in Leeds, U.K.. A mostly sweet but slightly tart IPA, lemon citrus, some grapefruit, but I’m not familiar with yuzu which is in here, moderate mouthful, low carbonation. Good. The…

Beer #3312 is a stout brewed by Siren Craft Brew in Finchampstead, Berkshire, England. A smooth creamy stout, chocolate, roasty coffee, a touch smoky with some dark fruit in the background. Excellent. The bottle size is 330ML with an alcohol…

Beer #3296 is a stout brewed by Ridgeway in Oxfordshire, England. I got two of these just before Christmas, along with their Elf beers (I think I’m missing some in the Elf range though). I’m glad I got two of…

Beer #3293 is a porter brewed by Ridgeway in Oxfordshire, England. Coming across more like a black IPA than a porter, this is a very drinkable ale, chocolatey with a mild roasty bitterness, toffee, hint of coffee, hoppy fruits, a…

Beer #3292 is a barley-wine style ale brewed by Ridgeway in Oxfordshire, England. A dangerously drinkable barley wine style ale, sweet toffee, low bitterness, fruity. The 10.5% just isn’t an issue (until after you’ve drank the whole damn thing). The…

Winter Brew

Beer #3291 is an ale brewed by Fuller’s in London, England. A decent ale, sweet with some bitterness, hoppy fruit, a little alcohol warmth even though it’s only 6.3%. My brother reckoned it tasted like a home brew but I…

Seriously Bad Elf

Beer #3288 is a strong ale brewed by Ridgeway in Oxfordshire, England. An English double ale, as it says in the label. A solid double, quite bitter with sweet toffee malt, some fruity hops. The 9% ABV is extremely well…

Very Bad Elf

Beer #3283 is a bitter brewed by Ridgeway in Oxfordshire, England. An improvement on the other two I’ve had, not that they were bad, they were good. This is better, coming across like an English bitter though it doesn’t hide…

Bad Elf

Beer #3281 is a spiced ale brewed by Ridgeway in Oxfordshire, England. Despite a fairly watery mouthfeel at first, much like the Black Elf, the flavours linger and build just like that one. There’s a smooth bitterness running through it,…
