    Decent week for me:

    Woodforde's Tundra
    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Jo C's Knot Just Another IPA*
    Kelham Island Riders on the Storm
    Abbeydale Absolution*
    Old Pie Factory American Pie*
    Grafton Blondie
    Brunswick Black Sabbath*
    Phipps Green and Gold*

    Both the Black Sabbath and the American Pie, as Mr F notes, were excellent.

    BOTW though has to go Phipps Green and Gold due to loyalty to the Saints. A very easy drinking green-hopped beer of which the one pint I had time for flew down.

    Yorkshire Dales-Skeldale:4.4% abv.Delicious pale ale.Fruity hops,some vanilla. My BOTW,taken in The Farmers Arms

    I think I've already identified my BOTW for this week. Some will probably guess at which pub.

    I believe I'm right in saying that both Swoon and Triple Chocoholic use real chocolate, with the latter also including chocolate syrup. I'm not sure at what stage they're added to the beer.

    Brodie's and probably others have used cocoa nibs. I've no idea what they are but assume they are less sweet than chocolate.
    Purple Moose do a Chocolate Mousse beer which the first time I tried it was horrendously sweet, a Death By Chocolate type of drink. When I tried it last month it was a lot better and Vanilla had been included.
