Pot Kettle Black

7/10 Lovely little porter! “Fresh and hoppy yet rich and black” It looks and tastes great! Yeastie Boys are a brewery from New Zeland and have some really interesting beers available. They are brewed in the UK by Brew Dog… who have some really interesting beers of their own! 6%

Dunkel Fester

6/10 A special beer just for Halloween. This is a dark, malty, almost stout like beer. But it’s not as thick or bitter as a stout and has a kind if fruity note to it. Pretty decent pint and as always with Wychwood, a great label! a disturbingly dark beer 4.4%

Black Cab Stout

7/10 Rich full flavour with a satisfying bitterness. Not too bitter tho, lovely pint. “Transports you back to a time when porter was a Londoners drink of choice!” 4.5%

6/10 Had this half way round a pub crawl for a Stag Do. From what I remember, it was a great beer. Very dark and tasty. Another winner from the Titanic Brewery!
