    Dawkins East Bristol Session Porter (4.1%)
    Overworks Cosmic Raspberry (4.5%) * an 'oak-aged' sour
    Dawkins Foresters Black (4.8%) smoked oat milk stout
    Sambrooks Imperial Russian Stout (10.4%)

    Dark Star APA (4.7%)
    Sambrook's Powerhouse Porter (4.9%) *
    Salt Crash (5.0%)
    Electric Bear x Mokoko Coffee Mokoko Chocolata (5.2%) chocolate, caramel & coffee stout
    Arbor The Milky Beers Are On Us (5.5%)
    Wild Card Ella IPA (5.7%)
    Vocation Breakfast Club 2.0 (6.9%) waffle & blueberry breakfast stout
    BrewDog Jack Hammer (7.2%)
    ABC Flat White Breakfast Stout (7.4%)
    Salt IKAT (8.0%) *

    Payday meant I was able to order some beers and an e-mail from Beercraft tempted me with their stouts and porters and an order for 14 x cans and bottles was duly placed. I'd also read somewhere about Sambrook's doing a Russian Imperial Stout, so finding these available on their website, 6 x bottles were commandeered along with my BOTW.

    Its can had a front-end view of Battersea Power Station, and the info on the can didn't give much up other than stating it had "bodice, challenger, fuggles, goldings" hops. This beer had a nutty taste and drank more like a strong best bitter than a porter, although a slight dryness in the aftertaste, but was moreish enough and passed the three-pint / can test.
