    Wantsum 5 Gold Grains
    Triple fff Pressed Rat And Warthog
    Disruption Last Walk Thru Eden
    Disruption Battle Royale Citra
    Three Castles Hoppy Christmas

    Bottles & Tins
    Salt IKAT
    Thornbridge Jaipur
    Thornbridge Jamestown
    BrewDog Elvis Juice
    BrewDog Layercake
    BrewDog/Evil Twin Roaster Coaster
    Ruddles Best!!!!! (Mum & Dad don't understand beer).

    Everything was good or better apart from the obvious.
    BOTW is Pressed Rat & Warthog , the best I've ever tasted it in The Alfred, or anywhere else come to that.

    Last cask before Tiers:

    Adnams Ghost Ship (cask)*
    Oakham Bishops Farwell (cask)*
    Marble Trials #2
    Oakham Citra T90 (unfiltered)
    Marble Rapid Vienna IPA*
    Oakham Green Devil T90 (unfiltered)
    Yeastie Boys Gunnamtta
    Oakham Black Magic (unfiltered)
    Titanic Plum Porter
    Oakham Hop Slam (unfiltered)
    Oakham Citra
    Marble Barley Wine 2018

    All the cans and bottles were good with the Oakham unfiltered particularly worthy of note and Christmas wouldn't be the same without Titanic Plum Porter.
    BOTW has to be cask though and Oakham Bishops Farewell takes it with it several pints taking next to no time to whistle down on Christmas Eve.

    From a much better stocked beer cupboard.

    Brewdog -- O- G Hazy (c)
    Titanic -- Plum Porter * (b)
    Mikkeller -- Blow Out (c)
    Titanic -- Plum Porter Reserve * (b)
    BrewDog -- Overworks Cosmic Raspberry * (b)
    Mikkeller -- American Dream (c)
    Marble -- Sky High Mountain IPA *(c)
    Tiny Rebel -- Electric Boogaloo (c)
    Vocation -- Life & Death* (c)
    Marble -- North South Petite IPA * (c)
    BrewDog -- Elvis Juice (c)

    Both Marble beers were beautifully balaced (more now on order),but BOTW goes to Titanic Plum Porter Reserve ,with the extra poke only serving to enhance this brew into the superb category.

    Next week steady progress through the stash.

    The small batch 10% Gun Brewery Barley Wine in ultra-rare cask form - just £6 for two pints from the village club - but, as advised, it would keep for a day or two in the now-traditional plastic milk container, so no need to rush!
