Fuller, Smith & Turner  by London Porter

Paul B. is drinking a London Porter by Fuller, Smith & Turner at Albany

After a few disappointing porters, I have gone to a known high point. Always a reliable high quality porter.

Harrington's Breweries by Wobbly Boot Porter Ale

Paul B. is drinking a Wobbly Boot Porter Ale by Harrington's Breweries at Albany

Redux, thought I would give it one more try, was good then went bad. Nah still bad, I thought they might have fixed it, not a good porter.

Emerson's Brewery by Daredevil

Paul B. is drinking a Daredevil by Emerson's Brewery at Albany

Dark side of red, light hops, can taste the 6.4%, citrus and something resinous. Wasn't sure I liked this at first but in the end I do.

Mike's Brewery by Vanilla Coffee Porter

Paul B. is drinking a Vanilla Coffee Porter by Mike's Brewery at Albany

Coffee & molasses straight off. Vanilla is there but not to the fore. Nice creamy mouth feel.

Sunshine Brewery by Pipeline Pilsner

Paul B. is drinking a Pipeline Pilsner by Sunshine Brewery at Albany

Hoppy aroma, hoppy to taste, some sort of soapy thing going on, maybe rock melon.

Bottle

Boundary Road Brewery by Brewers Cut Chocolate Moose

Paul B. is drinking a Brewers Cut Chocolate Moose by Boundary Road Brewery at Albany

Milk chocolate, mild coffee, a bit thin otherwise, the porter seems to be missing from behind the chocolate.

Renaissance Brewing Company by Stonecutter Scotch Ale

Paul B. is drinking a Stonecutter Scotch Ale by Renaissance Brewing Company at Albany

Redux, malty, smokey, some fruit notes. I think this has improved in the years since I tried it last.

Bottle

Hertog Jan by Grand Prestige (2016)

Paul B. is drinking a Grand Prestige (2016) by Hertog Jan at Albany

2016 version, have had the 2013 & 2015. Malty sweet aroma, makes your mouth water. Sweet & astringent (10%), leaves your mouth dry. Fruity.

Mike's Brewery by Chocolate Milk Stout

Paul B. is drinking a Chocolate Milk Stout by Mike's Brewery at Albany

Mild everything, no outstanding notes. Pleasant is probably the adjective.

Bottle

Harrington's Breweries by The Rogue Hop NZ Pilsner

Paul B. is drinking The Rogue Hop NZ Pilsner by Harrington's Breweries at Albany

Mild hop & citrus notes, something else they say gooseberries on the bottle but since it has been 35 years since I've seen one I'm not sure.

Panhead Custom Ales by Port Road Pils

Paul B. is drinking a Port Road Pils by Panhead Custom Ales at Albany

Could smell the hops right off the bat, and the bitterness comes through on taste but not overpoweringly, some citrus there maybe mandarine

Behemoth Brewing Company by Triple Chocolate Milk Stout

Paul B. is drinking a Triple Chocolate Milk Stout by Behemoth Brewing Company at Albany

Milk chocolate, mild cocoa bitterness, nice dry finish. Chocolate flavour without the sickly sweetness some chocolate stouts end up with.
