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,…

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…

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…
