Beer Review: Montezuma’s Chocolate Lager – Hogs Back Brewery

Hogs Back Brewery have collaborated with chocolatier Montezuma’s to create a lager brewed with the cacao nibs used in their ‘Lordy Lord’ dark chocolate. When I first read the description my first thought was ‘there is no way that works’. However, it sounded so weird I simply had to give it a go. It has actually gone on to win a gold award at the … Continue reading Beer Review: Montezuma’s Chocolate Lager – Hogs Back Brewery

Beer Review: Imperial Kirsch – Vocation

Through work, I recently got the opportunity to go to Brew London, my first beer festival since Covid. Based in the Printworks in London, Brew London hosted a massive variety of different breweries from across the country and I had an absolutely cracking time. I only ended up buying one can of beer to takeaway, mainly because the lady behind the bar at Vocation is … Continue reading Beer Review: Imperial Kirsch – Vocation

Beer Review: City of Cake – Hammerton Brewery

Hammerton Brewery is a first time feature on the blog but not new for me personally. As a London based brewery I’ve had some of their core range on draft a few times, particularly their N1 pale ale. We’ve also had their flagship beer ‘Crunch’, a peanut butter stout, on draft at work before! This beer, ‘City of Cake’ is a Chocolate Fudge Cake Stout, … Continue reading Beer Review: City of Cake – Hammerton Brewery

Beer Review: Layer Cake – BrewDog

Much like how I’ve been meaning to watch the movie ‘Layer Cake’ for a while, I’ve equally had this beer in the fridge to try for a couple months. Released into Morrisons by heavyweights BrewDog, ‘Layer Cake’ is a 7% ABV Marshmallow and Chocolate Stout. I’m always a little concerned of marshmallow flavours in a stout because I’ve found it has the tendency to make … Continue reading Beer Review: Layer Cake – BrewDog

Beer Review: Escape With Me – Maltgarden

Something new for Stout Sunday today! While I’ve certainly had plenty of classic Polish lagers from the corner shop, this will be my first Polish craft beer! This is Maltgarden Brewery and their ‘Escape With Me’ stout at a hefty 7.5% ABV. It’s been brewed with added hazlenut, maple syrup and cinnamon. I think it’s either going to be well balanced or have the potential … Continue reading Beer Review: Escape With Me – Maltgarden

Beer Review: Northern Star – Northern Monk

I suppose I’m going to have to start drinking earlier in the day to get these snaps, it was only quarter past 4 when I took this and it was already pitch black! With the unfortunate news of London heading into Tier 4 I guess I’ll have some more free time again. Anyways, today’s review is on a core range beer from acclaimed Leeds brewers … Continue reading Beer Review: Northern Star – Northern Monk

Beer Review: Bueno Shake – Unbarred Brewery

I was searching for a funky beer for a giveaway I’m running on my Instagram (check it out here if you like! https://www.instagram.com/lorenzobeerreviews/). I settled on this ‘Bueno Shake’ from Brighton based Unbarred Brewery, a 6.4% Milk Stout. The idea of a Kinder Bueno flavoured stout just seems like a match made in heaven so hopefully the high expectations I’ve built up for it are … Continue reading Beer Review: Bueno Shake – Unbarred Brewery

Beer Review: Chokka Blokka – Williams Bros. Brewing Co.

It’s International Stout Day today so of course I had to go for a stout review! This is from the current range at Lidl. It was actually released in the batch from earlier this year but I wasn’t able to get a hold of it at the time. ‘Chokka Blokka’ is a Mocha Stout from Scottish brewers William Brothers and is not only vegan but … Continue reading Beer Review: Chokka Blokka – Williams Bros.
