    Blimey. According to my beer lists for 2012 and 2013 the only two I've tried are the Salem Porter and the Dunham Porter. I'll have to keep an eye out for the others - assuming pubs can actually get their hands on some.

    Only one I've tried was the Anastasia's Exile, and that in bottled form.

    Eight for me.All drank in London pubs.The only one I didn't like was Old Freddy Walker.Tasted like bad medicine.Also had a version with sloe berries even worse.Although I don't really like barley wines so don't let me put you off.It usually sells for about £3.00 a half so that might put you off.

    I have just checked through and the only one I haven't had is the Highland Orkney Porter.
