I have to admit it, English Strong Ales are really my thing at the moment. And this does the business. Served in one of Hashigo Zake’s lovely tulip glasses, the rich aroma of chocolate and port kept me just inhaling for minutes before taking my first sip. Full and sweet in the mouth, lovely toffee flavour leading to a rich sticky-sweet port-like finish, the hops doing just enough to leave a linger delicious aftertaste. Very very nice.

Cantabrian (780) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 16, 2013
Handpump at Pomeroy’s, at the lovely company of Travlr and Jimthechap. I’m not a fan of the colour of summer tidepool, but I love the vast range of fruits, malts and nutiness in the flavour. Had this beer a thicker body, it would be an instant favourite.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Cask handpull at Omeroys. Hazy dark reddish brown color, bright tan edge head. Aroma of nutella on toast. Taste is watery caramel, toast, subtle peppermint. Decent. Needs more body. Add rye?

rather disappointing, moderately sweet maltiness seems to predominate, and there’s not much in the way of richness nor flavour to fill it out. a little sticky tropical fruit perhaps, and a rather full palate, but otherwise...eh, it’s okay.
