Two Roads Expressway

7/10 I didn’t think I’d like this as much as I did. It’s a coffee stout so I was expecting an espresso kick but this is soooo smooth. There is coffee yes but this is such a dark and rich beer it adds to the flavour rather than tasking over it.  Bloody brilliant! In a… Read more »

Double Stout

5/10 An Irish stout by one of my local breweries in Kent, Shepherd Neame.  I normally find stouts overly bitter and roasted. But this was softer and maybe a bit chocolatey. Thumbs up! 3.8%

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%

Guinness West Indies Porter

8/10 Wow! Smoother than normal Guinness and without the thick head. It’s a porter (not a stout) and has a hint of chocolate. Actually very nice! With origins in an 1801 entry in their Brewers diaries. This is a complex yet mellow hoppy with notes of toffee and chocolate.  6%
