    Again this past week everything has been well above average.

    Siren Bubbling Bubbles
    Siren Sold My Soul For Simcoe*
    Siren Cacao & Cherry Broken Dream*
    Siren Nitro Cold Blooded
    BrewDog Lost Lager
    BrewDog Jack Hammer*
    The Kernel Pale Ale Mosaic*
    The Kernel Export India Porter*
    Thornbridge Kasperia
    Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
    Wild Beer Millionaire
    Moor Smoked Lager*

    It was going to be a tough choice this week with Sirens I sold my soul for Simcoe leading the pack, then came the two bottles from The Kernel, the BOTW this week goes to the sublime East India Porter Stunningly good.
    Next week looking forward to a bottle of The Kernel Dry Stout (Vic Secret), amongst other stuff lying in wait.

    Continuing with a can fest.

    Siren -- Scattered Light *
    Siren -- Middle Finger Discount
    Elusive -- Level Up American Red *
    Salt -- Huckaback NEIPA
    Elusive -- Spellbinder
    Thornbridge -- Jaipur IPA *
    Marble -- Uppe Hela Natten
    BrewDog/Evil Twin -- Roaster Coaster *

    BOTW ,and not for the first time,goes to BrewDog/Evil Twin Roaster Coaster.The nitro helps give it great smoothness,decent coffee hit with a subtle lingering dryness demanding more.IMHO a very good imperial stout,straight outta Tescos.


    Next week following Moby and TP down the Vibrant Forest route having polished off all my reserves from Lockdown 3 online ordering.

    Stocks were higher than calculated:

    Bottles:
    Oakham Citra
    Oakham Green Devil IPA
    Titanic Plum Porter
    Brewdog Mr President
    Oakham Bishops Farewell

    Cans:
    Northern Monk New World IPA
    Marble Berimbolo
    Brew York Big Eagle
    Marble Cross Collar
    Marble Lagonda
    Marble Rapid Vienna IPA

    No disappointments there and all were very good.
    BOTW Brewdog Mr President. Thoroughly enjoyed their double IPA as an after dinner drink. Probably best that I only had the one bottle in stock at 9.2%.

    Slimmer pickings this week. Also had some cooking lagers just to mix things up:

    Bottles
    Beerblefish 1892 IPA (6.6%)
    Ayinger Winter Bock (6.7%)

    Cans
    Verdant There Will Be No Intervals (4.5%) pale ale
    Arbor The Devil Made Me Brew It (5.5%) dry-hopped stout
    Tiny Rebel Stay Puft Imperial Honey Glazed Ham Marshmallow Porter (9.0%)
    Tiny Rebel Stay Puft Imperial Irish Coffee Marshmallow Porter (9.0%)
    Tiny Rebel Stay Puft Imperial Mint Chocolate Marshmallow Porter (9.0%)

    My experiences with the Tiny Rebel beers were recorded here. Ham, IMHO, whether glazed or not, is definitely not an ingredient that should be added to a beer.

    I particularly enjoyed the Winter Bock – a winter version of the brewery's Celebrator dopplebock. I struggled to find it online after first seeing it as the note I'd left on my phone auto-corrected the word Ayinger to 'Stinger' and 'Stinger Winter Bock' wasn't getting me anywhere on the Beercraft webshop where I'd first seen it. A dark and malty joy with a hint of liquorice, and toffee and caramel notes that I could actually discern, along with an ease of drinking that belied its strength, this was a superb change to the weak lagers and fancy-named stouts and porters of late:

    BOTW: Ayinger Winter Bock
