It’s a double bill Stout Sunday today with two bangers from Newcastle based Wylam brewery. These are from the beers I got for my birthday a while back. ‘Macchiato’ and its follow up ‘Imperial Macchiato’ are both hazelnut and praline, coffee porters but with the latter clocking in at over 10% ABV and having been aged in Buffalo Trace whiskey barrels! The original, which appears … Continue reading Beer Review: Macchiato // Imperial Macchiato – Wylam Brewery
Hitting up Stout Sunday with another beer from the folks at Brass Castle Brewery. My Dad was treating himself to an order recently from Taylor’s Gluten Free Beer Network and I asked him if he could tack on this weird beer for me. ‘Elvis Impersonator’ is a Banana, Facon (fake bacon) and Peanut Butter Porter rocking up at 6.7% ABV. Of course, the beer is … Continue reading Beer Review: Elvis Impersonator – Brass Castle Brewery
A gluten free dark beer today from a new brewery! Yorkshire based Wold Top do a few gluten free beers in their line up including this 5% Marmalade Porter. This brew has actually won quite a few awards including the country winner at the 2017 World Beer Awards and a third place in the World Gluten Free Awards 2018. So with that in mind the … Continue reading Beer Review: Marmalade Porter – Wold Top Brwery
It’s a new brewery for today’s Stout Sunday and a gluten free one at that. While there are an ever increasing number of gluten free beers available the majority end up being lagers or IPAs. So when my Dad finds an online store selling a variety of GF stouts and porters for the winter he couldn’t be happier. Bought from Taylor’s Gluten Free Beer Network … Continue reading Beer Review: Hygge Figgy – Brass Castle Brewery
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
It’s Stout Sunday today, hope everyone has had a good weekend so far! Although we’ve technically got a porter and not a stout. Been a little bit since I’ve had a beer from one of my personal favourite breweries, Northern Monk. I think this has been out for a while now but I picked up ‘Stars & Stripes’ from Tesco when I went to grab … Continue reading Beer Review: Stars & Stripes – Northern Monk
Returning to a Black Isle Brewery beer today. Perhaps the one I was most excited for simply because I haven’t had a porter in ages! People argue that porters aren’t a summer beer but in my opinion beer is for when you want it. It’s probably the style you can be most creative with and still come out with a good beer. This isn’t any … Continue reading Beer Review: Porter – Black Isle Brewery
Another one of the funkier beers from the Tiny Rebel haul and I believe the first porter I’ve reviewed. Porters are my guilty pleasure I think, and I feel breweries often get quite creative with the types and flavours of porters they release. This one is Tiny Rebel’s ‘Stay Puft’ marshmallow porter. One of their core beers now as far as I’m aware and one … Continue reading Beer Review: Stay Puft – Tiny Rebel Brewing Co.
