    October is here and that means its time for Dark beers! It's autumn so it seems pretty fitting to be drinking something dark and comforting. I've never judged before so It will be pretty casual,I'll be judging with a few friends who also really like their beer. I'm pretty excited to try what you good people have made. PM me for my address and let me know the style and abv (preferably attached to the bottle).

    I'd love to enter. But I think my 17% Bourbon BA Impy needs more time in the bottle before allowing anyone to taste it.

    Yo sorry I've not been replying on here I've just replied to the PMs I've been sent. I think I've had about 9 people say they're going to submit something so should be a fair few to compare against. I've not received anything yet if anyone has sent anything yet but I wont be judging till November 2-3rd or 9th 10th so still plenty of time.

    Sorry just seen this, a toasted marshamallow stout massively tickles my fancy. There a tiny rebel beer called stay puft that I can't get enough of! https://www.tinyrebel.co.uk/beers/stay-puft/

    I've also got a coffee porter that I've kegged that I would like to try and send in but I'm slightly concerned about oxidation as I would need to bottle it from the tap...

    Has anyone got any tips for bottling off the tap? I've not got the money spare to buy a counter-pressure filler before any suggests going down that root.
