    A course I was on in Leeds yesterday finished unexpectedly early, so what's a man to do? A pretty good start to the week:

    Ilkley - Mary Jane.
    Roosters - YPA.
    Ridgeside - Southern Cross.
    Elland - Nocturne.
    Marston Moor - Matchlock Mild.
    Elland - Skydog.
    Durham - White Magic.
    Thwaites' - Hit The North.
    Exmoor - Beast.

    Some lovely beers there, but the Nocturne was a fabulous rich stout. It's going to take some beating.

    Another quiet week but a day or two boating next week may see some much needed variety introduced. BOTW goes to Oakham Black Hole Porter, no apologies for Oakham getting my BOTW for the 4th week in a row, they seem to be on top form. Black Hole Porter at 5.5% is as you'd expect but for one seriously dangerous and quality trait. I tend to find one or two pints of porter style beers is enough especially if they're 5.5% as this one is. Not so here, BHP positively begs you to have another pint. Dangerously and enjoyably drinkable.

    I know a lot of other posters have waxed lyrical about Exmoor Beast ,I tried it for the first time in The George,Croydon and just have to award it BOTW,although Dark Star American IPA pushed it very hard once a few pints of it had been pulled off,well I was drinking in a 'spoons afterall.
    Being a little wary of the Beast's 6.6% ABV ,I gave it a sniff and got a distict reminder of Mr Bruce's Dogbolter.Now that was a pint where you never knew which way it would go.Stay down,or come straight back up? Glad to report that The Beast caused no such angst,it really is a very finely crafted brew.

    Got the boat moving,so will be navigating through London and up the Colne valley in search of decent ale next week,just hope that fortune favours the brave.

    I've also had a couple of excellent pints of the Beast this week. Also Summer Wine Resistance Dark Mild almost got the vote.

    But the winner is going to be Wentworth Chilli Stout, tried in the Regal Moon. It's a lovely stout that leaves you with the tingle of chilli on your lips and at the back of the throat.

    I'm not saying I could have a full session on it but I had it as my final pint of the night on both Saturday & Sunday.

    Unfortunately, I peaked rather early this week, with no more beer after Tuesday. Therefore, BOTW is Elland Nocturne.

    Aside from enjoying a couple of bottles of Brains Dark at home, the only beer I had this week was Ringwood Fortyniner , drunk in large quantities in order to numb the pain of losing our South Coast derby game against Southampton this weekend.
