  • 2021 on draught actually

  • Dangerous. (Thankfully I live on a dry estate.)

    To my shame I never popped by there when my partners folks were living just off the Windmill Rd, so only a short walk away.

  • If anyone finds themselves in SE London this weekend, Beer Shop Nunhead have a Pohjala tap takeover.

  • Tonight's libation is the Northern Monk Death Star ep 2.
    Didn't realise it was a 12% when I grabbed it from the fridge (might not have drunk this on a Monday had I noticed)
    Pretty sweet, strong on the caramel. Not really getting peanut.
    You can tell it's an imperial, but not overwhelmingly booze-y.
    Fairly sure it was a fiver in Tesco.

  • I clearly need to visit Tesco.

  • These are all around 15% and will be disappearing this winter (much like my liver)

  • Forgot I also had a try of Siren's Odyssey 009­dyssey-009/2657604

    If you like strong flavours, brown sugar, molasses heading towards kinda bretted, wine barrel aged finish, then hit up one of these.

  • Was that bought a while ago or is it new in?

  • Last week or 2

  • Very nice, this one has a strange but compelling aftertaste.

  • Has anyone had any banging porters recently? Nothing sickly sweet, I like the dark bitterness

  • Burning Sky Robust porter

  • Haven't had one for a while and it's not a porter but the De Dochter van de Korenaar – Charbon smoked vanilla stout was always amazing

  • Titanic Plum Porter is reasonable

  • Thanks guys, will be trying them all!

  • This is my favourite beer of the year.

    Alas, it is too expensive to be my daily driver, but am having one tonight as I was feeling fancy

  • Christmas stout stash has arrived with a few bits to guzzle in between

  • I’m sure it’s probably been said a while ago, but staggeringly good wrecker series is a winner.

  • I just want to come clean to this thread and say I’m really not a fan of stout/porters. Sorry 😞

  • What’s the verdant & Beak collab like?

  • I feel a bit like that sometimes too.

    My xmas order came this week - 24 bottles mix of bitter, ale, lager and a mini keg of Joseph Holt Bitter. Hopefully I don’t have to drink this lot to myself again.
