      Fourpure Brewing Co Oatmeal Stout 5.1%. Rich, bitter and burnt, which briefly overpowers than fades in to a smooth flavour with a slightly grainy texture and melts into a flavour that's somewhere between sucking pennies and a papercut at the same time. It's overpowering and certainly not for those that don't like stout, unless your a little anaemic and then you should guzzle away. Interesting enough to deserve a try, not quite good enough to purchase a second.

      Stewart Brewing First World Problems Belgian IPA 6.2%. Wow, that hit me on the nose when I opened it and I have a poor sense of smell. Sweet yet bitter, hoppy and heavy. Amber nearing brown in colour, a thin head that clings to the glass. A tad gassy, even if I wanted too, I'd struggle with more than one of these. Definitely needs to accompany a meal. A try before you buy beer, especially as the floral hop taste increases as you drink it.

      Birrificio Italiona Nigredo 6.5%. Has a tag line of Blacker than the blackest black and it is darker than the stout I had earlier. Odd flavour combination, strong hoppy flavour mixed with the burnt, bitter coffee taste I'd associate with stouts. Nice, but much like the one above, definitely an accompaniment for a meal. As I finished the last few sips, noticed a sweet caramel note as well. Good beer and my favourite if the three I've had so far.

      The Five Points Brewing Co Railway Porter 4.8%. As I poured, a definite whiff of chocolate was noticeable, this became even more apparent after taking my first sip. Stunning, chocolate notes enhanced by a smooth espresso bitterness which is enhanced further by a slightly sweet, almost caramel back note. This is just superb. It gets better, you let the flavours settle and a wonderful, yeasty
      after note, reminiscent of Twiglets hits you. This is top notch. So, so good.

      Running Beer Howling Hops Brown Ale 4.0%. Fizzy, even when poured slow, foamed when I took the lid of the bottle, like a science fair volcano when I pour it. It's a hoppy Newkie Brown, with a sweet after note. Has a warm, fruity taste that makes me classify this as one for the colder months, a lasting bittersweet, floral note on the back end. Easily my second favourite of the night, really good.

      Following on from Rodders' excellent reviews.

      Bulmers Original

      Sugary as a mother f**ker even when the ice has melted in it. Leaves a smooth layer of 'I don't know f**king what' on the teeth and after a week on it like I have it brings the joys of gout entwined with that sweet, sweet sensation of chronic heartburn which makes me think that they are in partnership with Rennies as I go through packs of those as quick as I do bottles of cider. Also it helps me with my exercises as I go for a piss 'per bottle'

      Magners Original Cider 

      When the pub doesnt sell Bulmers.

      See Bulmers and multiply everything by 10.

      Fourpure Brewing Pils 4.7% - The crisp dryness you associate with a pilsner combined with a hoppy after taste. Easy drinking, light and tastes good. Could knock a few of these back and not notice.

      Rebel Brewing's Surfbum IPA 3.5% - A very low intensity but full of all the bittersweet tastes and hoppy notes you expect from IPAs. Could easily drink a few of these, two good beers so far.

      Buxton Brewery's Wild Boar IPA 5.7% - After the last one, this is as subtle as a sledgehammer, first I was hit in the mouth with an almost spicy, lime taste, the flowery hops burst forth, tinged with a subtle sweetness and than the familiar dry, bitter aftertaste. My favourite so far and if you like IPAs, this is certainly worth a look, though you'd want to pair it with food, a little too heavy to drink on its own.

      Vedett's Extra Ordinary IPA 5.5% - The label states not from India and not a Pale Ale, and it's right on that. Sweetness and a warm fruity, spicy are my first impressions, a light hoppy taste and no real bitterness to talk of. It's nice, which is all I can muster, but a tad underwhelming. Not one I'd search out again, but interesting enough to say it's worth trying, once.

      Wild Beer's Wild Goose Chase 4.5% - Tart and fruity, almost stepping on cider/perry territory and then it's pulled back by a subtle hint of hops. It's quaffable, even if not being something that's to my taste, the acid back notes that combine with the hops mask the initial sweetness, almost forcing you to take a second swig. Good, very good, just not for me.

      Tasting time again, starting with Brewdog's Hardcore IPA 9.2%.  It's good, it's very good and it certainly doesn't taste like a nine percenter. Sweet, nutty, hoppy, bitter, syrupy as you sip, exploding into a creamy. I've not hurried this one, the abv worried me, it's a sipping beer. Tasty and smooth.

      Fullers' Frontier 4.5% - Not good, a lager that's insipid and for those that remember Kaliber's first run or Swan's Low alcohol offering, it has a similar metallic and slightly chemical taste. A dim wash of hops on the way out. Nothing to recommend it at all.

      Fourpure's Beartooth American Brown Ale 5.3%, strange but nice, hitting more notes that I'd associate with stouts and porters, a mild, slightly burnt coffee, a soft toffee note. Really good, just not what I expected. A mild, creamy, hoppy note as it departs out of a drink that resembles a glass of coke. I'm loathe to call this a light stout, as light has some negative connotations in the beer world, but it's the best description of this very good beer.

      Wiper & True Citrus & Sevens - An overly sweet IPA, whilst this may appeal to some, considering the normal bitterness associated with an IPA, for me it's atrocious. Not quite sickly sweet but it overpowers all the other flavours. Not good.

      Black Isle's Goldfinch 3.5% is the last one of the evening, and it's a really nice, sessionable IPA, not spectacular but very good. Always surprised when a low abv IPA pulls off tasting this good.

      What are you drinking?

      F***ing acid which is also known as Strongbow.

      Had a cracking little sesh from 3pm onwards in Shoreditch area but as per f**king usual I'm never satisfied. In hotel bar that is shut with cans of Bow in an ice bucket on my own. Two lads I've been with are well asleep but I'm in that mood where i just don't wanna stop.

      Must be the 'no Mrs nagging at me' thing.

      Can't catch me here can she? :)

      Nothing beats the first beer after spending 4 days traveling, being jet lagged and sick as a dog since returning, having 3 assignments due and now 4 days off before exam period starts.

      Certainly beats the taste of phlegm from coughing :D

      Produced in Moray, Scotland no less! Incredible for an area of Scotland I'm so familiar with, both Aberdeen and Inverness, that I've never been to the area where it's produced. That said I can lay claim to having lived next to where both Highland Park and Tennents have been produced!

      I've taken a liking to Desperados, the tequila beer. I didn't like it at all when it first came out, but it has certainly grown on me!
