    Tonight I am having my first taste of my Baltic Porter lagered for 12 weeks 7% ABV and coming along nicely 20 litres and I doubt any of it will see the new year.

    Tower Brewery Burton Imperial IPA - not bad, sort of an odd trad British style IPA but with new world hops, and also a bit lighter than most traditional IPA's - I now that makes it sound like a an american IPA but I cant quite put my finger on how it differs from that style ~ yeast, perhaps? OK, not sure I would actively seek it out, but would be interested o try it on hand pump.

    Adnams Broadside. Phew. This slips down nicely for a strong ale, doesn't it! Loving it, don't know what the hops are but they are very Fuggle like. Yum yum.

    I love broadside its very complex and hard to pin down hop wise, another is mac champion flows down the pipes like a rolls Royce if you were blind folded you would never say these 2 ales were as strong as they are :beer1:

    Hi Clint there is other stuff in adnams that gives it that subtle taste its like it hits you after you have swallowed and lingers in the back ground

    An imperial stout brewed by our friends and local microbrewery Pub Dog Brewing Co. in our small town. Aged with cacao nibs, cherries, and orange, in a bourbon whiskey barrel. It doesn't suck.

    They do these collaboration brews, where a local liquor store buys the bottling from a single cask of whiskey, and the brewery ages a beer in that same cask.

    I agree, Champion really is a lovely, and very dangerous, pint. I've sank three before and regretted it the next day!

    Clint's on the ball I think. Have a look at the blackboard in the brewery in this thread.

    That's really interesting, cheers Foxbat!

    Looks like I was totally wrong about the hops, I'll have to try a First Gold SMASH.
