Drinking a Beavertown X Caravan Coffee Roaster SPRESSO (Imperial Espresso Stout) 9.5% ABV

Tastes like Dark Chocolate mixed with coffee and some tangy aftertaste. Definitely recommend it.

Oooo sounds nice!

I had an interesting Mikkeller the other day, was a coffee IPA 7.4% or about there and it was stunning really didn't expect coffee and IPA to mix but holy hell it went well!

Birra del Borgo Keto Reporter 6.5%

I've not had a porter in quite a while, and this one was very pleasant. Smokey, but not like something like Smog Rocket. Chocolate, coffee and licorice. Yummy.

It's made from a normal porter then with added Kentucky tobacco leaves, which I guess gives it the nice smokey taste.

7/10

Yeah the bottles in Italy are very jazzy. They have a kind of fat bottom and curves. A lot do have the standard brown bottle style, but they seem to have quite a variety here.

It's cool! For the beer a can is better but look wise that wins!

Having a Thornbridge Baize, it's a mint chocolate stout and it works incredibly well, the mint isnt overly strong. Really enjoyable.

#MashTag2016 has begun!

If you don't know it this is the most democratic of beers, options go and everyone votes and from the votes it decides the style, characteristics etc. of the beer they then make.

Just started on a bottle of this:

Picked it up in Sainsburys for... £1.80?
It's really nice! I can't really taste it as delicately as I'd like though due to my mouth still being gimped from having a wisdom tooth out. :(

Sounds good. I got a new one in my beer box today that is a Chocolate and Blueberry porter, it will either be awesome or a total disaster :D

Tried that Guinness West Indies Porter last night and it was lovely.
