Bristol Beer Factory Ultimate Stout
I love Bristol Beer Factory, their Southville Hop and Milk Stout are world class. I came into this without thinking about previous knowledge. It is Jet Black. This is probably one of the darkest stouts I have seen. I had to pour it hard to get a half finger head which didn't last long and dissipated into a thin film. It smells very boozy at 7.5%, smells very peaty with wood and chocolate following up, there is a bit of raisin and dark fruit lingering at the back. Soon as you take a zip sip you are hit with sourness and peat. So much so it is unenjoyable. There is not many beers I have poured down there drain but this one I did. avoid!

Bristol Beer Factory Milk Stout
Dealer / Source: Pub (Cask) Expectation: Dark Sweet Milky Stout Were expectations met: Yes Findings: It is pretty much what it says it is.

Bristol Beer Factory 12 / Twelve Apostles
Pilgrims Inn, Glastonbury. Citric fruit and elderberry. A girlie beer as Chrissie says. Very fruity and quite sweet. A little too strong on the hops and light on malt character for my taste.

Fairly boring smell, hints of hops. Taste is great, fruity and lots of it, lovely texture/mouth feel. For all its taste it does smell average though. Lovely

Cask ale, half-pint, shared with Finn at Bag O’ Nails. Bubbly white head, clingy lacing, a slight haze to an amber-golden body. Ripe malt-fruity aromas. Mixed bag of citrus to the taste buds, impact of lemon and orange. Malt-fruity bitterness to the finish. Fine drinkability. (Sunday pub crawl in Bristol 30.04.2017).
