There are the world of good stouts and porters available these days. I’ll just big up two of my local ones, Bristol Beer Factory’s Milk Stout and Bath Ales’ Dark Side. Both lovely. Though, with a whiff of Spring in the air, I won’t really be drinking them again much this year.
Had a pint of Griffin brewery chocolate porter during this afternoons real ales session….first taste was very chocolatey but got over whelming after taste of pine resin!
Wasn’t my favourite of the days tastings. Tunnel Brewery Nuneaton mmmmmmmm nice beer and open fire 🙂
Funnily enough… I probably need to look in the mirror a bit more, out on a ride somebody mentioned the the ride leader had a beard to someone and they pointed to me and said oh is it him.. I had no idea that I need a shave that badly ( I was not leading the ride)
It was surprisingly nice. The Oak one is only made at Christmas so it might be harder to find later in the year. The standard one is beechwood smoked. It was a bit rougher but still nice. The Oak is about 8% iirc so only a couple are needed 🙂
